Of the many types of dried fruits available, from raisins and prunes to dried guava, my favorite has got to be the dried mango. The sweet sourish taste of mango in the easy and convenient to eat package makes a very good office snack.

Furthermore, this stuff has plenty nutritional values. Lots of potassium, vitamin C, and most importantly, good amount of fiber for those who might have digestive inconveniences but do not fancy prunes. Dehydrated mango is believed to preserve all the nutritious properties of the fresh fruit (or so they say).

I have tasted three different brands of dried mango from Philippines, two found at Isetan at KLCC, the Joy Mangoes, and 7D Mangoes, with the third, CEBU (also the name of the province that produces the best mangoes in Philippines) brought back by my buddy ShaolinTiger all the way from its country of origin.

The taste of all three brands are comparable to each other, and way superior to the local brands I have tried. However, a 100 gm pack of imported dried mango goes for RM 8+, while the local brands are around RM 3+. In this case though, you get what you paid for. The local stuff is just too sweet and lacking the distinct mango sourness and aroma.

Give it a try, this is really good.
