PINK PINEAPPLES - PROMO PIECE . . . .
« on: February 27, 2022, 11:43:42 AM »
Gentle TFF Members,

Here is a link to an article about Del Monte's new pink pineapples that I found in the TicoTimes, an online Costarrican Newspaper and which I thought some of our TFF members might be interested to read:

The Del Monte Pink Pineapples of Costa Rica

https://ticotimes.net/2022/02/21/the-del-monte-pink-pineapples-of-costa-rica

Granted it is a promo for these 'new' pink piñas, but there are a few bits of interesting infromation on them in the article that I had not heard about before.

¡Pura Vida!

Epicatt, I see that you are in Tampa.  If you have an interest in trying the Pink Pineapple, Sanwa Produce on Hillsborough Avenue has them sometimes.  About a week ago I was in there and they had them for $6.99.  Not cheap but not the outrageous online prices they are commanding.  I picked up a few on a whim for us and my wife's two brothers and their wives.

To us, they did seem a bit sweeter and without the acid aftertaste but not sure we would make a special trip there in the future for them.

I see that I shall have to check Sanwa out, Jagman.  Thanks for that heads-up.

I live some six blocks(!) from Sanwa and have never been. 

Sounds like a really decent price.

¡Purra Vida!
