Nice Cheeks

Hi this is Leslie Harris, and I really like mango.

I like fresh mango, I like frozen mango, I like dried mango, I like mango lassi which is an Indian mango milkshake…

I was at the store the other day and I saw something called mango cheeks. I was intrigued, so I bought some. They tasted just like dried mango. So I wondered what the difference was.

Turns out, mango cheeks are just the inside part of the mango, so exactly the same thing as dried mango, with a fancy name and a higher price tag. I’d been duped.

What other ordinary foods have fancy names that make you think you’re getting something special? Let me know in the comments
