Mangue séchées

Made mostly in the province of Cebu, dried mangoes are one of the Philippines' export products. This particular brand seems destined for France or Canada. If you ever see any in your country, grab a pack. It's a real sweet treat, even for us when it's not mango season.

Hard to believe but I have never seen dried Mangoes. By the time our fresh ones are gone, I guess people have tired of them till next year.

Lois said...

Mangoes are delicious and now I'll have to look for your particular brand and give them a try.

Contrast should be an interesting Theme. I look forward to your "solution" to presenting it. I know it'll be terrific.

I've enjoyed mangoes the few times I've had them, but I've never had any of the dried mangoes. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for them when we go to the grocery.

Yummy! Hope you produce for Argentina as well. I love mangos! Dried or fresh, I don't care.

Jacob said...

They look very good. I've never developed a taste for mangoes, but I've not eaten many of them. I'd sure try these, though!

Jarart said...

They look like they would be a real treat!

Kaori said...

Yummmm! These are SO GOOD! I bought a whole bunch of dried mangos when I was there :D

Don and Krise said...

They look like candy, and I'll bet they are just about as good. I'm going to have to give them a try one of these days.

Mango in a bag?!

Yes, I agree, finally a normal creation by Dali. I just learned about its existence yesterday.
The "waterfall" barriers around the arrivals gate might be the only way to keep expectant waiters back. More elegant and calming than bars, but there is nowhere to lean.
