The mango pudding, haven't tried the one from The Peninsula Boutique though but it can only be good. I find that the mango flavor comes out best in puddings.

I like mango lassi. I always come home to it. It's "Lassi, Come Home."

Weis Mango (40% real Mango) is great. Kaldi Farm Coffee sell them cheaper than in Australia - about 170yen - cheaper than any on the above list. With REAL mango, no artificial colours/flavours and tasty ice cream down 1 side - it really is great in the heat. All the Japanese I treated to a taste loved them. I am just back in Australia eating the Macadamia, Mango and ice cream variety. I am sure they would go down well in Japan.

I like the real mango I'm able to plug from the tree when I travel in Africa and some other Asian countries. Totally different tastes

I had some fresh Mango in India and it just melts in your mouth like butter.

There are many different varieties of mango - with different flavour. I grew 30 trees of the 'Bowen' variety in Australia - very popular there, which has a stronger taste. That is what is in the 40% fruit in Weiss ice creams at Kaldi Farm Coffee.

I usually like the mango South of the border. Sweet and or dried with Chili powder....mmmmm, sweet and spicy treat. Problem is mangos are not the cheapest fruit you can eat on a daily basis in Japan. They usually run around ¥480 for just one. In the states, I can get two for $1 or sometimes even less for a few. It kinda sucks being that mango is my favorite fruit, on occasion Costco has some good deals on mangos. Love the jam, back home we have some great jam, I too, don't like anything artificial. Either 100% or nothing, you can tell right away because they use too much sugar and it kills the flavor.

Anyone know where you can get a good mango parfait in Tokyo?
