Champagne Mangoes


 One of the things that I always anticipate during summer time are these mangoes pictured above. These are just not ordinary mangoes, they only come out every summer and I'm looking forward to buy and taste the sweetness of these mangoes. These are just like the ones that we have in the Philippines! They are called champagne mangoes, I don't know exactly where they're from, perhaps Mexico...

I saw these kind of mangoes at Walmart a week or two ago and I was very excited to get them until I saw the price, $1.99 each! As much as I wanted to buy some and eat it right then, I had to just closed my eyes and walked away because the price was just too much! I was so glad that I didn't buy it there because when we went to Sam's few days later, there they are in boxes for $6.98 per box and there were 15 mangoes in each box which makes it about 46 cents each!  Very shocking to me because they are the same company! I wonder why such a big difference on the price? Oh well, as long as I got my mangoes everything is fine!
