Trader Joe's Newest Fruit Butter – Mango

Trader Joe’s has a wide variety of gluten-free products in their line up.  Some are old favorites and come back season after season, some seem to disappear from the shelves and never return.  I believe peanut flour is one of those to be discontinued.  Anyway, I found a couple of new products today and there is one that I do believe that I am going to have to gush over – Mango Butter.

Trader Joe's Mango Butter

I have been singing the praises of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter for a few seasons now.  They also make Cranberry Apple and while it is tasty, it never had the same appeal to me as the Pumpkin Butter did.  Last time I was in the store I saw a new variety – Honey Apple Butter. While it sounded good, it didn’t jump into my cart like the Mango Butter did today.

As I was driving home, I began to think about how I was going to try the newest fruit butter. Would I spread it on some gluten-free toast?  Would I stir into some yogurt?   Topping for my ice cream?   I quickly ruled out the ice cream as I only have chocolate in the freezer and that combo didn’t sound so good.  I am out of yogurt, so straight by spoon it was!

I have to tell you that I believe I have a new spring/summer favorite!  This stuff is really, really good!  I can’t see many foods that I wouldn’t like this on!  I would even think that it would make a tasty glaze for chicken or pork.  The ingredients are simple:  mango, sugar, water, pectin, lime juice concentrate.

Trader Joe’s maintains a gluten-free product list that is periodically updated on their website. This list can also be seen in the store as well; simply ask a store employee to see it.  Many of the gluten-free products have a symbol on them that says “no gluten ingredients”.

Have you had a chance to sample any of Trader Joe’s fruit butters?  What did you think?  Do you have a favorite?

    I saw the mango butter, but for some reason just took the apple honey butter, even though I love mangos. The apple honey was good, but I will definitely try the mango next time. I think it would also be nice mixed in cream cheese and put on a bagel.

      Oooh….I like the cream cheese idea! 🙂 I am going to have to pick up the apple honey next time I go. I should have just picked it up yesterday, as I knew I would get it at some point! LOL!
