Cocoaland Mango Gummies
I first discovered these mango gummies from Malaysia at my neighborbood grocery, Manila Market, in Daly City, CA where they cost $3.99 a bag. They are absolutely addicting. I started taking them with me on cruises, giving them out to the crew, in little plastic bags, along with their tips and, now, whenever I get on a ship, they come up and ask me, "Miss Carmen, where's our candy?" I finally located a wholesaler in Oakland who sells them to me by the case so I end up paying a dollar less a bag but I have to get $200 worth. In the last five years, I know I've bought 25 cases of 24 bags each. The Royal Caribbean crew love them and so do all my friends and family. If you ever come across a bag, try them.
Here's Sanjay Dicholkar, one of the finest bartenders ever, with Royal Caribbean - holding up one of the mango gummies. I sailed with him on the Mariner of the Seas and on the Serenade of the Seas. He's one of my Indian "sons" and a good friend. I love it when he calls and leaves me a message and says "Mother India." He has the warmest smiles and is the epitomy of good service!
This is my mellow yellow Monday offering.
