That variety of mango isn't the best. It's mostly grown for supermarkets where shipping and shelf life concerns take a priority. Try a honey/Ataulfo mango if you can find them, it's so different and so much better that it might as well be a totally different fruit.

I watch a lot of Anaheim Ducks games and they're always fucking advertising this shit. It looks like the goddamned best thing ever. There's only one in Vegas that I know of, and whenever I try to give it another chance, it's quite possibly the worst fast food I've ever had.

The same thing goes for Weinerschnitzel, but probably because I never feel like stepping up and getting anything good, and go for like their 5 for 5 deals or whatever when I actually really just want a good chili cheese dog.

Instead I eat 5 chili dogs and throw up in the morning like 7/10 times.

oh but its so much worse than just bland with mangos. Seems like about 1 out of 3 mangoes will go bad without changing on the outside. You grab it, cut it open and see this a web of black gunk thru the mango. Something to do with a tree fungus that gets into the fruit while its still attached.

buying mangos feels like buying a shitty lottery ticket where the big win is 5 dollars.
