I was super excited to try Amoretti Artisan Natural Flavors & wow are they good! The mango flavor has such an elegant aroma & tastes like sun ripened mangos exactly! The vanilla cupcakes are made with Amoretti Almond Flour, honey & coconut oil. The mango buttercream icing was the perfect compliment & tastes like paradise. There is no way you could get this kind of flavor with generic extracts or flavors. This product is all natural & seriously dense: 2 oz = 24 oz of fruit purée. I’m hooked!
