    What's in a name?
    In the past, I have bought clementines (tiny seedless mandarin oranges) for my family. And they like them, but if they failed to eat them all fairly quickly, they would get moldy. But recently, our store sold California clementines known as "Cuties" (see http://www.sunpacific.com/cuties.html ). The kids gobbled these up within a day or two. What is the difference? Only the name! Just have to have a "Cutie" whereas one might not even remember "clementine".

    Well, the "uglies" are also a hit, (Ugly Dolls) so maybe go with extreme names...

    Those cuties are always a favorite here. If we are at Costco, one of those Cuties will definitely be in the cart. Yes, they always get gobbled up. Yummy!

    Is it possible that the Cuties are sweeter? I did notice a difference from when I used to get clementines and when I get them now, but there's also been a long time since I was buying any oranges at all.
