Seasonal Money-Saving Tips

5 tips for making the most of mangoes

  1. Drink up. Raise a glass to mango smoothies, aguas frescas, lassis, sparklers and sangrias.
  2. Wedges are in! Cut into wedges and sprinkle with chili powder or serve with a dollop of whipped topping.
  3. Complement your condiments. Give marinades, sauces, chutneys and salsas tropical flair; try Mini Tropical Cheese Toasts.
  4. Seek the sale. One of the sweetest, smoothest varieties, the Ataulfo (aht-ah-uhl-foe), is in season around now...watch for special prices!
  5. Stretch the sweetness. Use in recipes such as Mango Tea Bread or a whole grain salad to get the most out of every sweet bite.

8 ways for shopping with a conscience

  2. Non-GMO Project Verified. Choose Non-GMO Project Verified products, and vote with your dollars for a non-GMO food supply.
  3. Premium Body Care™. This seal means our strictest standards for quality sourcing, environmental impact, results and safety. Most of our 365 Everyday Value® body care products meet this standard, making more high-quality products available to more people.
  4. Whole Trade®. The Whole Trade® Guarantee blends quality, environment and responsible trade. Save on Whole Trade® chocolates.

  7. Responsibly wild-caught and farmed seafood. We build partnerships with farmers and fishermen that are committed to bringing you high-quality seafood that's also environmentally friendly. Download coupons.
