The pros: Trader Joe’s Super Sweet Dried Carabao Mango is a healthy option with a good sweet flavor. Resealable bag.
The cons: When I opened my bag all the mango strips were sticking together making it hard to grab a piece.
The verdict: For $3.99 you get a small bag of thinly sliced mangoes. Aside from the fact that all of my mango slices stuck together in a clump in the bag, they looked like they were crystallized even though there is no additional sugar in the product. The dried mango I’ve had in the past was sugared and was a bright hue of orange. So this took a few pieces to get used to and adjust expectations. This retains a more natural coloring as it is both unsweetened and unsulfured.
This has a very natural delicious mango flavor. Since they are thinly sliced they will remind you of the texture of a thick Fruit Rollup (minus the added sugar of course). With each slice I enjoyed the product more and more. Before I knew it half a bag was consumed. The texture may not be for everyone. If you like dried fruit or you like fruit roll ups this is a good bet in the dried fruit section.

Would I buy this again? Yes. In fact I’m not sure how I ate the bright orange candied ones after eating half a bag of these. At first I was unsure about these. After I adjusted to the natural sweetness Trader Joe’s Super Sweet Dried Carabao Mango were quite good.
