I'm looking for a place where I'm easily able to buy (good) dried mango slices. The best brand I've found so far is 7D (filipino) and they're usually found at Pusateris, but it's expensive ($6 a 200g bag).
Other than the very bad varieties that are available at Sobeys, does anyone know where i might be about to locate some?
anywhere in the GTA.
Any Chinese grocery store will have a selection of various brands for between $1.99 and $2.99 a package. Or else, some higher quality ones can be bought at Chinese bulk snack foods shops by the gram or kilo (depending on how much you're wanting), but they can get pretty pricey ($13/kg for some).
Actually, what Costco carries will vary from store to store based on local demand (no sense in carrying items that won't sell well, right? A sophisticated inventory control system and solid market fundamentals is how they keep prices low, in addition to the bulk purchase of goods.). However, since we are talking about the GTA, which has excellent demographics for such items, it's not unlikely that you would find them at a Costco locally. But don't expect to find them in every Costco.
you can get the 7D ones in the chinatown supermarkets .. they would be a lot cheaper than pusateris .. but i think theyr'e your best bet . i don't like the hard thick orange gelatinous ones from the bulk stores .... my dad sends me over packs of 7D from singapore and philippines so it's aawesome!!
7D Dried Mangoes can be found at Longo's (on Bayview, north of Steeles). I have also seen a life brand version at Shopper's Drugmart. But it isn't as good as 7D
I know the costco on the queensway carries them as a regular stock item as I often buy them there...
