Good idea!! In Mexico kids like those kind of snacks. I used to eat carrots, mangos, beets, jicamas, papaya, watermelon, pineapples with lime juice and chili powder (one fruit at the time or fruit salad).

The flavor depends on how good the oranges are -- if they are bland, the recipe won't be quite as good.
