mango nectar

NahantNative Jun 30, 2009 12:34 PM

I posted a few weeks ago in seach of agave nectar and you all were so knowledgable that I have come back for more help.

Does anyone know where I could come across mango nectar in Boston or Brookline?

    Just about all the supermarkets in the area sell Goya Mango Nectar (as well as usually pear, peach, apricot, sometimes tamarind, etc). Its sweet, on the thick side (most of their nectars include juice and pulp). For a slightly better product, there is Brazilian Mango concentrate sold in Brazilian stores, Market Basket, and some Johnnie's Foodmaster but you would have to alter the consistency and sweeten it yourself.

      Costco and BJ's sell cases of thick Brazilian mango/guava/passionfruit nectar. They're really addictive.

      By far the best mango nectar I've found is "Best Mango Nectar" which I have only seen at South Bay Plaza Super 88.
      I use it exclusively in all my cocktails requiring mango nectar
      far superior to Goya
      it comes in both litre sized and 10 oz bottles

        I use dafruta mango liquid concentrate for anything from sauces to drinks. I buy it at Stop and Shop. I have tried others including the Goya nectars and this is far superior in taste.

          Try and find a nectar made with Alphonso mangos. Those are the best, and if they're being used, the product will say so.

            Fresh alphonso and kesar mango is what I eat all summer for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Where do I find alphonso mango nectar here?

            Many supermarkets sell Looza brand mango nectar. It's excellent, if a bit pricey. I also like Best, which you can find at any Market Basket. It's cheaper, although my kids say it's not as good as Looza.
