There are days when I know I want to snack on something but I’ve got no clue what I want. There are other days when I know EXACTLY what I want.
Well, today was one of those days when I knew I wanted some dried mango.
I’ve always loved dried mango. Sweet, chewy, and packed full of flavour.
Dried mango beats raisins or dried cranberries any day and yes, in my world, it beats chocolate too. On this particular occasion, I ended up with a bag of President’s Choice dried mango but I’m pretty much happy with whatever I can get.
Now, it should come as no surprise to me that the President’s Choice dried mango is made with mango slices, sugar, and suphites. Truth be told though, I was hoping sugar wouldn’t show up on the ingredient list but it did.
Oh well, all in moderation right?
The good news: at least I still get 30% of my daily intake of vitamin C if I eat 6 slices of the dried mango (ie. 42 grams). Minus the 29 grams of sugar, it isn’t that bad, right?
Again, all in moderation. Then again, I’d still rather have dried mango than a soft drink. Mind you, I just finished a fresh crispy, crunchy, apple.
