Have to go with oranges because they have great juice. Never had a fig, they don't look to good either, IRON CHEF, are you voting too?


Yes, I've been voting in the contests.

Oranges, no contest. The only thing that sucks about oranges though.. is when you do an imperfect peel, and it gets all messy and you get all sticky.

Which word came first, the food orange or the colour orange?


I definitely agree, oranges can be very messy, thats why I prefer the fruitier and cleaner clementines.

As for the word origin, its purely a guess, but I'd say it was the color that came first.

oranges by a ton


Yep, not even close. Oranges are stomping figs 20-1 right now. 8-o

Nothing like a glass of OJ in the morning or an orange slice after a good meal of Chinese food. Fig newtons are pretty good but I didn't even know what a real one looked like until I saw that picture.

those are actually a less common variety(the green ones). the ones you usually see are a dark brown color, but the same shape. the green ones have a higher sugar content generally.

I love oranges, but figs are pretty good too. If you want to pass out, just dunk a fig in a bowl of sugar, then in a bowl of condensed milk, then in chocolate. 100% guaranteed that it works.

I'll vote for the underdog and go with fig, because I feel liek it.
