nature’s candy: dried mango

Dried mango is one of my favorite snacks. It’s especially nice as a summer travel snack – it doesn’t get smooshed or crumbly, and it doesn’t melt. It’s great beach food. Of course, it also looks nice in a bowl.

But I don’t understand why every brand of dried mango I’ve seen in stores has added sugar. I imagine dried mango would be pleasantly sweet on its own. The added sugar really pushes it into candy territory, for me. At least this candy has a smidge of fiber, vitamin A, calcium, and iron. And no fat!
