As you can see clementines contain a lot of water, a hint of salt and fat, a little calcium, quite a lot of acidic content, and a lot of sugar.

This means that unfortunately they can’t eat clementines. Citrus fruits are not good for hamsters to eat as they are just too acidic and sweet for them to eat. A food to avoid feeding them.
