With that said, it is a given that mangoes are spelt as H-A-P-P-I-N-E-S-S. It’s not summer until the ripe, golden balls of sweetness flourish in the market. It’s rightly called the emperor of fruits as it’s universally loved and cherished. Mango in every form is a delight to the taste buds, be it a mango sundae, mango pastry or even simply diced cubes of it in a bowl. It can sweep you off the floor with just one bite.
