One of my family’s go-to snacks are dried fruits. Ever since my girls were tiny, bags of mixed dried fruits and nuts have been a staple in our house. My family is always ready to sample new and sometimes exotic dried fruits, so I wasn’t surprised that the new Sunsweet Philippine Tropicals were a hit. As yummy as the flavors are on their own, they are even better when combined into a Tropical Trail Mix.
Sunsweet Philippine Tropicals recently added two new flavors to its lineup including the Philippine Green Mango. My daughter happens to love mangos, but until this sample I had never even heard of a green mango. It turns out that Sunsweet Philippine Green Mangos are picked early, just as they begin to ripen. Much like “reds,” which are early blueberries, green mangos have a unique tangy flavor.
In contrast to the other chewy fruits, the other new flavor is the Thai Coconut Chip. Crisp coconut chips with a satisfying crunch combined with creamy vanilla notes.
The new flavors pair wonderfully with the other Sunsweet Philippine Tropicals flavors – pineapple and mango. One of my favorite dried fruits has always been the pineapple, and the Philippine Pineapple is juicy and delicious, like eating chunks of fresh pineapple. The thick pieces of Philippine Mango are made from America’s #1 Mango and are just like biting into a mango.
