And I’m highly allergic to poison ivy, so I have it extra bad with the mango – just from pealing the skin off! Reply woah, you can’t eat mangos? that sucks 😦 Reply I just need to use a fork – and wash afterward. But I actually ate one last night. My wife peeled it for me. Reply Well, the skin has always just been the speed-bump on the road to goodness.
