HI GUYS, this is so frustrating. Today i have bought some mangos from the market and i was planning to have a mono meals..they look really nice from the skin and they seemed they are ready to eat. Here comes to the part, the first one is rotten on the inside(black and disgusting) that i have to threw it away. one by one....they looks the same way...so horrible.
Does this ever happened to you guys? this is my third time having the frustration, now i have a panic of buying mangos..:( they are my fav. fruits but i can't eat rotten ones(some of you might don't care if its slightly rotten) this time i bought organic ones to avoid the same thing happened the first and second experiences. What can i do now? please be advise T_T.
Very frustrating! :P
When this happens to me I make sure next time to taste test in the store before buying. Produce department will be glad to cut one up for you to taste. What a shame they're selling bad fruit! I have returned peeled and cut up watermelon and mangoes many times for a refund.
I'm with Kramer on this one, I return bad fruit! ;)
Just don't buy imported mangoes that have been dipped in hot water before shipping. They are partially cooked and always seem soft to touch when they are rotten inside without getting mushy like they should if not cooked...
Thanks for the reply guys. do you normally get the fruits from the market? or supermarket?
Definitely take them back and get a refund. They will be less likely to sell bad fruit in the future if people do this.
yeah i bought 15 cases of mangoes the other week and over half of them are turning out to be crap. it's a real shame :(
In my grocery store they double your money back on bad/damaged produce - sometimes I wonder if they think I'm some sort of scam artist! Cause I'm there pretty regular getting my fruit $$. I'm pretty sure all the produce clerks realize I'm their best customer so not to worry. Actually as time goes on I get better and better at picking out the best fruit, unless I'm in a hurry. And commercial mangoes are always tough to tell for me, too.
But each visit I check out the mangoes, ususally I don't buy because I've had trouble with them too. Then the produce guy from Guatemala swings guy to remind me that, to him, these are not even mangoes - I need to see those growing at his family's back home THIS BIG!! I can only imagine...
Oh my God! Are those mango lollipops?? I want to go there!
We need stands like these on every corner!
Love that pic....keep posting more like it. Thanks...
That is SOOO awesome!!!!
