Philippine Brand Mango Balls
These Philippine Brand Mango Balls constitute a wonderful new discovery! It seems that Philippine brand is one of the largest purveyors of dried fruits from the Philippines and the company decided to branch into sweet treats. What makes these mango balls special is that they taste like Real Fruit, really wonderful real fruit. The mango is processed down to a gummy consistency, cohered into a ball and then covered with sugar to add a little crunch. I've reviewed other mango candies here, like Cocoaland Lot 100 Mango or Mike and Ikes Mango flavor or even Fun Dip Tropical Mango and have come to the conclusion that I just don't enjoy artificial mango. These little sweets, however, taste real and carry that beautiful mango tang better than any other mango candy I've previously encountered! Try these, they're great! I found these at the Aji Ichiban store in New York, but have also seen them for sale at smaller markets around town. They don't seem to be too elusive and I plan to stock up on a lot more!
