Still, I decided to give it a go. There weren't many of the fruits left at IGA Market Place in Burnaby but I found a decent-looking mango and bought it.
It weighted almost 750 grams or 1.5 pounds. It cost $9.99.
$9.99 for a mango.
But wit! The bill said "You saved $5.00", so actually it should have normally cost $14.99. For one mango. That about $10 per pound.
- It tastes decent. Like a mango.
- The seed is very flat. So, their verbal claim at the store that the seed is maybe 10% of the total mass is true, at least for this one mango I bought.
- There is no significant fibre from the seed throughout the pulp.
- It tastes just like a mango. Nothing special. Nothing to make we go "wow" or that I was happy to pay $9.99 for a mango when I could have paid $6.88 for NINE (9) pounds of Mexican mangoes at Superstore.
The question I'm left with is, "Should I buy anything else from IGA?"
