Back at home, I watched her peel the skin from this yellow fruit, a soft palm-fitting curve to it's lovely shape. Inside was revealed a golden interior smooth and sweet. Nibbling on a small section, I could see what all the raptured enthusiasm was about. Of course, anything that includes "champagne" in its name has to be special. Secondly, these really are a step up in flavor over ordinary mangos, both mellower and more flavorful at the same time. And as the years have passed, their rarity has impressed me. Try as I might, I have not come across them again until this week - in my local Wal-Mart, of all places. Mangos, champagne or otherwise, offer a bevy of health benefits to tempt you to try them. Like Anita, I have fallen in love with the Champagne Mango.

I tried them this morning with my ritual coffee with cream and sugar. Their delectable sunburst arcs alongside the light, fresh mildness of banana circles played a breakfast cantata for my senses. The first meal of the day should make you smile, don't you think? I'm sure Anita would lovingly agree.
