Sunsweet recently launched a couple of new dried fruit flavors to complement their Philippine Tropicals line of dried fruit. Sourced from unique micro climates that have ideal growing conditions, these sweet, succulent dried fruits let you experience a burst of the tropics with each bite. Hey, if I can't be in the tropics, at least the tropics can be in my mouth.
Philippine Green Mango and Thai Coconut Chip. The green mangoes, which are picked early—just as they begin to ripen, pack a tangy punch that absolutely excited my taste buds. The coconut chips are sweet and crunchy with a hint of vanilla, and add just the right amount of sweetness to a trail mix (in my opinion...I'm not big on actual sweets in my mix).
These two joined the previous Philippine Mango and Philippine Pineapple in Sunsweet's Tropical dried fruit line. Marabella Mangoes, which are apparently so sweet that even the locals can't get enough of them, are used to create the sweet, juicy strips of mango and hands-down this is THE BEST dried pineapple that I've ever had in my life. While I love fresh pineapple, I've never been a fan of dried since I've always found it to be too hard and too sweet. Sunsweet's Philippine Pineapple is soft and juicy...and tastes only like intensified pineapple.
