Are these things cheap to grow? Is there a glut of mangoes on the world market? Is there a cartel of mango dealers?
I think mangoes are being used as a filler like lettuce at Subway.
We buy frozen mixed fruit that my wife adds to yogurt, and sprinkles of granola for her breakfast. These bags of fruit contain strawberries, peaches, pineapple, blueberries and a ton of mangoes.
Since when did mangoes become the go to fruit? There are mangoes in everything: mango salsa, mango mixed fruit, mango ice cream and try to buy a flavored bottle of water without mango in it: strawberry mango, orange mango, pineapple mango.
I don’t believe consumers are raving for mangoes, so it must have to do with a profit margin – we are being manipulated to eat mangoes.
