Tangerines taste like the kind of food that only exists in children’s book illustrations. You know how, physically speaking, foods have a certain amount of flavor that is distributed throughout their mass? Steak, potatoes, apples, pie—all of these things, though they taste different, provide approximately the same level of sensation in the eating.

But not tangerines. Tangerines are the fruit equivalent of hot sauce or umeboshi plums. They are the kind of fruit that you would taste in a dream and then wake up regretting that they don’t really exist. Except they do.
