During our recent trip to Cebu, these dried mango strips were served during my grandmother’s 90th birthday party. I found them much more delicious than other dried mango brands I’ve tried. These mango strips were sweet, but not cloyingly so. They were chewy, but not to the point you’d hurt your jaw – nor were they stringy. I also liked how neat they looked! Orange rectangles of awesomeness. It was a must, therefore, to find out what brand this was. Ta-da! Guadalupe Dried Mango Strips.
Thanks to my grandmother for sending these over! It’s hard not go through a whole pack in one sitting. So hard.
Little stacked tower of dried mango love
During my grandmother’s birthday party as well, I tried drizzling the strips with chocolate from the chocolate fountain. It was all kinds of yummy. I promised I’d try that sweet concoction when I got back to Manila. Promise fulfilled.
Melt a few squares of creamy milk chocolate in the microwave or over your stove top. Dip the dried mango strips, sit back, and enjoy!
It wasn’t as yummy as my first dried mango chocolate experience. Next time I think we should use real melting chocolate. My sister suggested chocolate chips. Reason? If you use a branded chocolate bar, its signature taste overpowers the taste of the mango. The chocolate’s very delicious, yes, but with this snack you’d want to taste both the chocolate AND the mango. Chocolate chips next time, it is.
So yup, best dried mangoes ever in my opinion: Guadalupe Dried Mango Strips. Now I know what to look for next time I go to Cebu!
Do you like dried mangoes too? There are several brands in Manila supermarkets but I haven’t encountered Guadalupe here yet. If you spot some, could you let me know? 😉
