“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Other Fruits „
In my effort to be healthier I chose to expand my fruit eating and snack on dried fruit. My dad bought me some delicious dried mango which I ate in one sitting, so I decided to buy my self some but as it was so expensive I chose the cheapest one I could find. Introducing "Sainsbury's Ready to Eat Sweetened Dried Fruits: Mango". I have to say I was disappointed. *ingredients* Stupidly I didn't check and so when I thought I was just putting in sweetened mango I was actually consuming: Dried Mango (42%), Sugar, Water, Acidity Regulators (Malic Acid, Citric Acid), Preservative (Sulphur Dioxide, Potassium Sorbate). Basically this means that they had dried the mango and then re-added water which increased the weight. The sugar they had added also means that it is not as healthy as I thought, and although I have quite a sweet tooth then all the additives took away from the taste. *Amount* There wasn't as much as I thought there was going to be and would probably serve two people for an afternoon snack. Due to this reason then they are best as just a cupboard snack that you can dip into. *Texture* Ah this was the second worst aspect of the fruit. They felt like dried slugs, as they had a dried skin and then been rehydrated. When you bit into them they are like thick jelly sweets, so like the non sugar coated cola bottles. *Taste* This unfortunately the worst aspect of the fruit. It did not taste anything like mangos. The overpowering taste was like sweeteners, which I don't like at all. *Value for money* Well as they were actually unhealthy, didn't taste very nice and didn't feel very nice then well even if they were 1p they wouldn't be value for money.
