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!
