Dried Chunk Mango recommendations?
« on: November 13, 2018, 12:57:58 AM »
I've been a big fan of dehydrated pineapple for years.  Not long ago I discovered dried mango chunks at a relative's house and tasted them for the first time.  Delicious!  Both dried pineapple and dried mango can be eaten like candy.

As with most products, I suspect there may be truly excellent brands, some that are average, and perhaps some that are not so great.  If you eat dried mango chunks, which brands do you think are better than average to excellent?  Do you buy them in your local grocery store or online?

Are there other candy-like dried fruits I need to try?  I have a sweet tooth, so I'm not as interested in sour stuff as I am in sugary fruits.

Get a dehydrator and dry them yourself.
That is what I do, then you know there is nothing in it but mango (or whatever fruit you are drying), no added sugar, preservatives.
I do mango slices rather than chunks. Also like the dried Dragon Fruit slices (white, red, pink, purple, they are all good).
