    You Haven't Lived Until You've Tried A Chamango

    The best things in life are sweet (and spicy).

    Let's face it, mangos are great.

    But you know what's even greater than a mango by itself?

    A chamango! DUH!

    It's sweet, spicy, sour, and everything you ever could want in life.

    This Mexican treat is also known as a "mangoneada" and it is prepared in many different, delicious ways.

    No matter what gets put in, it always begins with two core ingredients: chopped (or sliced) mangos and chamoy.

    For those who don't already know, chamoy is an INCREDIBLE sauce made from pickled fruit and spiced with powdered chilis.

    Some folks like their chamangos with shaved ice and in the form of a raspado...

    ...while others prefer to add in some mango sorbet for a ~creamier~ effect.

    You can even have the mangos and chamoy combo by itself and that's great too!

    Chamangos are usually topped with chili powder and lime and you'll wonder how you ever survived without one.

    As a final touch, one can never forget to then include the chamango's signature piece, a huge tamarindo candy.

    This angelic combination brings friends together...

    ...is quite versatile...

    ...and will bring a smile to anyone's face.

    The combinations of this treat may be endless, but at the end of the day, it's guaranteed to make your life just a little bit sweeter.
