Have you checked out my mini "World's Most _______ " list? Think back to:
The World's Most Expensive Maple Syrup
The World's Worst Goldfish Bowl
The World's Most Heavily Defended Border
Well today I'm adding to that list...The World's Most Expensive Mango!
I've said this before and I'll say it again: fruit is expensive in South Korea. There must be crazy import taxes on fruit from abroad, because the selection here is limited to fruit that is domestically grown. Finding cheap tropical fruit can be difficult. Apples and oranges can be over a dollar each. Kiwis can cost $1-2 each or more. Korean pears can cost up to $16 each (during Chuseok)! Now this one is the kicker...a single mango spotted inside the Lotte Department Store a while back for 31,800w, or $34US! There must be diamonds or gold inside this mango, because this is one expensive piece of fruit.
On another fruit related note, check out this machine that was recently in Homever--why work when the machine can do it for you?
Spotted recently in the subway...a different form of in your face advertising...feel like drinking Pepsi?
What's your favorite fruit? How much do you pay for it and where are you located?
