Three other great calorie counting sites are:

www.calorieking.com
www.nutritiondata.com
www.dietfacts.com (for all the "brand" stuff)

They come in VERY handy for tracking down info if you're watching what you eat.

I wonder if the caloric value is different for the oblong/vs/the round. I know the round is always much sweeter than the oblong.

I have never seen them round. I didn't even know that existed. I learned something new today.

I always thought the "round" kumquats were really the good old Calamondin Orange of houseplant fame, since I believe it is a member of the kumquat family. But the fruit of those is very "tangy", is really only good for recipes with sugar added - like orangeade, etc.

There's no way you're having enough that you need to be counting those things.
