What are the orange things in my trail mix?

Asked by lefteh (9409points) July 13th, 2008

I can’t figure out what these things are. This is not my trail mix exactly, but it has the same sort of orange cubes: link

Could be dried apricots, or if it was a little more exotic trail mix could be dried papaya/paw paw

Actually, looking on the back, papaya is in the list of ingredients. Is that what dried papaya looks like?

shrubbery's avatar

I guess so, I mean it’s an orange fruit, and it seems to look the same as the paw paw in the trail mixes I get for camp, though in mine it’s always chopped up smaller than that.

It is dried mango. here’s the source for recipe.

Hmm, I’m not so sure… the dried mango that I’ve seen doesn’t look like the link that lefteh posted. Do the ingredients on the back say mango lefteh?

@ shrubbery – we were discussing this in the chat room and papaya is mentioned on the back, but mango isn’t. I am answering for him since I know he has gone to sleep now.

Dry orange things are never good, burn it.

lefteh's avatar

Well, after Google Image searching shrubbery’s response, I’m positive that they are dried papayas now. Thanks all!

And rather tasty they are, aren’t they?

lefteh's avatar

The first few were tasty. After that, they started making me a bit queasy.
