Trader Joe's Chile Mango Fruit Floes

Just another average shopping trip to Trader Joe's revealed a hidden gem I knew nothing about, the Chile Mango Fruit Floes. My first reaction was, "What the hell are those?" and then, of course,  I bought them. Fruit floe doesn't really register with me, but I figured they were some kind of frozen concoction. Well basically it's a popsicle, with a kick!
  
I open the box and see that it's popsicle-shaped, so that's a good sign. I take my first bite and get the sweet hint of mango and then BOOM, the kick of chile! I'm not accustomed to spicy sweets so this is a whole new world to me. Terry Hope Romero just happens to be in town and she loved them. Apparently, these are similar to Mexican paletas. I had to give it a minute or two for my farmer's palate, but now I'm totally on team spicy. A spicy mango vacation in your mouth!

  2. I just recently found your site and I love it, but I have a question. I haven't noticed any of the canned meat alternatives on your site. Have you ever tried any and if so what are your favorites? Your input would be very helpful. Thanks.

  3. This sounds like the best thing in the world, and I'm going to stop at Trader Joes tonight to buy them, and then I'm going to go home and eat them, and then I'm going to figure out how to make them myself even if it kills me, which it might.
