In India, it’s next to unbelievable to hear when someone expresses their dislike towards the supposed King of fruits –– the (not-so-humble) mango. Announcing its arrival each summer in the most grand manner, one is sure to see a spread of yellow carts throughout the streets.

But what do you do, when you can’t get your hands on those fresh mangoes? The range of mango snacks and drinks that come out in the summer have you covered. Yes, we know the freshness and juiciness of mangoes stand ahead of the other mango-flavoured snacks, but they sure have their own excitement, don’t they?

We have rounded up a few of these oh-so-yummy snacks for those moments you really (really) crave some mangoes –– but in the most convenient and easy way! After all, some kind of mango is better than no mango.
