Hot Right Now: Mango-Flavoured Everything!
written by
Nelly Ezz

Summer is officially here, and so is the mango season. While the flavour of mango has been a popular favourite throughout our childhoods, it has seen incredible increases in popularity over the past several years. This is largely because it plays on our nostalgic senses of younger, happier and carefree days. Mango has a distinctively sweet flavour that has been compared to peach, pineapple, and apricot. However, mango has a unique smell that is hard to describe, and many people find it irresistible. 

One of the most common uses for mango is in dessert products with a tropical twist. Mango is an excellent addition to many things you want to sweeten with this fruit flavour, ranging from dessert frostings and smoothies to juices and Acai bowls. Mango is also commonly used in frozen sweet treats, such as gelato and ice cream, which is one of our seasonal favourites. So, here are a few places where you can try some mango-flavoured goodies this summer.


The ever-so-popular Japanese Bakery is impressive, especially during Sahel season when seasonal fruity flavours are rising. Keki’s two branches, Galleria40 and Diplo 3, are now serving their delicious smoothies and fluffy pancakes in their signature seasonal mango flavour. You can also check out more of their summer offerings on their page.


Coming in strong this summer, Nola has decided to offer mango-flavoured cakes and mini cakes for special occasions. They recently added Mango Pavlova to their menu – talk about creativity! You can also find mango-filled desserts like Mango Lotus Volcano, Mango Lotus Tart, and much more on their summer menu. Call 16714 for more information.


Everyone’s favourite juice bar now offers seasonal mango products alongside the all-year-round products like smoothies. They offer freshly squeezed mango juice and the mango-tropic acai bowl with mango, kiwi, coconut, nuts, and acai! You can call 15522 or head to any of their branches in Cairo or Sahel to get yours today. 

Sno Gelato

Of course, summer is not complete without mango ice cream! Sno Gelato, amongst many other ice cream and gelato places in Cairo, now offers mango-flavoured ice cream as a fresh seasonal flavour. This year Sno is available in Sahel in Mountain View, Lavista Bay, and Marassi alongside their other three Cairo branches.
