In the 17th century, refrigerating food wasn’t exactly a common practice, as the refrigerator had yet to be invented. So when mangoes were first imported to the American colonies, they had to be pickled to prevent them from spoiling. In fact, pickled mangoes became so common a treat that the word mango soon became a verb meaning "to pickle."
In today’s day and age, we have far more options when it comes to enjoying the sweet fruit. Fresh, dried, juiced, or candied – mangoes are versatile enough to be consumed any way you could imagine. We’ve even taken a few ideas from Central America, including topping mango with chili powder -- it’s a combination not to be missed. For a candy that perfectly captures that flavor duo in munch-able, sugary bites, try out these Chili Mango Jell Fruit Slices -- each tender bite is sweet with the perfect amount of kick! We really pity our 17th century ancestors for being denied this sweet and spicy delight.
