  30. I might enter the cookoff - not sure right now. We LOVE the dole fruit cups specifically in the mandarian orange variety. I bought 20 packages the last time they were on sale and the next time they go bogo at publix I plan to buy a minimum of 40 4 packs. That might seem excessive but I have a 1 year old and a 2 year old and my dad who ALL LOVE those fruit cups!
