Mango Giveaway {Closed}


As I mentioned in my mangoΒ ice cream post, Whole Foods was nice enough to send me a whole case of mangoes to play around with. And lucky for you, one reader gets to win their own case! The case consists of Mexican Ataulfo mangoes, which are soft, buttery and creamy. You will love these mangoes. I have to tell you, I used our last two today for smoothies and Mike and I are both so sad they’re gone!

To enter to win your very own case of mangoes, just leave a comment on this post telling me what you would do with all those mangoes. For an extra entry, “like” What Megan’s Making on facebook and leave a separate comment letting me know. The contest ends Sunday night at midnight and I will choose a winner via random number generator. Good luck!

Congratulations to comment #129 – Hazel! I sent you an email πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for entering!

*Note: If you are worried about how hard mangoes are to peel and eat, check out this handy video from Whole Foods! It definitely helped me πŸ™‚
