When we named this product Just Mango Slices we weren't messing around. Inside the bag you will find Just Mango Slices, and nothing else. Our supplier dries several varieties of mango for us, so depending on what's most ripe when, you could find slices of Kent, Haden, Keitt, or Ataulfo mangoes inside the bag. Still, that's all you'll find. No additives, no preservatives, no colors. Just Mango Slices.
Trader Joe's Just Mango Slices is made for us by a supplier that's been in the business of drying tropical fruit for more than 20 years. They're peeled, seeded, and sliced by hand – the slices aren't uniform, but they are loaded with fresh, natural mango flavor.
Fun fact: it takes five pounds of fresh mangoes to make each six ounce bag of Trader Joe's Just Mango Slices. And that makes our price of $2.99 for that six ounce bag even more impressive.
