Distilling something into liquid makes its flavor more potent, which is why people drink juice instead of just eating fruit and drink water instead of just licking a glacier. Sip on the zesty essence of an ex-solid with today's Groupon: for $25, you get 12 1-liter cartons of mango nectar from Buenísima Blends (a $50 value). Choose between the following locations of the Food Front Cooperative Grocery to pick up your case: Northwest Thurman Street or Southwest Capitol Highway.
Taste buds can bathe in the rich flavor of the Buenísima Blends' mango nectar, which is made from a blend of not-from-concentrate mango purée, mango juice, and purified water. A light touch of agave adds sweetness, and the juice benefits from a lack of preservatives or additives such as time-freezing curses. The bright and lively mango flavor stays alive through the fresh-squeezing process, and brief yet effective flash pasteurization keeps it safe while preserving its tasty personality and favorite knock-knock jokes. Nearly 2 pounds of the puréed product go into each 1-liter carton, which is processed in Tetra Pak form to minimize environmental impact and enable long-term, spoil-free storage.
Buenísima Blends sources its harvest from Mexico, employing respectful trade practices with its mango growers. The company collects choice recipes that use the nectar, from cocktails to marinades to love potions for seducing a hummingbird. Split your tropical bounty with a friend, or squirrel the long-lasting cartons away to allow for mango consumption for the foreseeable future.
