There are two kinds of people in this world: those who like chocolate, and those who prefer fruity confections.

We love both; and while we’re not one to choose sides, we can probably all agree that the best fruit desserts are the ones made with mango!

Mangoes are the most popular fruit in the world. They’re ubiquitous in Mexico, India, and most Southeast Asian countries but nowhere else in the world grows better mangoes than the Philippines!

It’s our most celebrated export, sought after for its delicate fragrance and incomparable sweetness.

If you’ve been to Hong Kong, chances are you’ve stumbled upon Hui Lau Shan‘s mango dessert stores in every corner. We’ll bet you didn’t know that this global franchise uses our very own Philippine carabao mangoes to make their delightful desserts.

They offer things like: Mango Aloe Jelly in Mango Juice, Mango Coconut Juice with Mango Jelly, Mango Mochi, Mango with Tapioca, and Mango Ice Cream. Talk about mango on the mind!
