Nando’s is ditching mango and lime and replacing it with mango and PASSION FRUIT – The Sun

IF you're in the mood for a cheeky Nando's with mango and lime seasoning you're out of luck as the spice mix has been ditched in favour of mango and passion fruit.

The grilled chicken chain has made the switch-up in restaurants nationwide from this week where it will be available for four months.

It follows a successful trial of the new mango and passion fruit seasoning at "Nando's Yard" – its three-week pop-up venue in Shoreditch, London.

Nando's reckons the tropical and exotic flavour of passion fruit, which grows across the brand's Southern African heartland, is the perfect match for PERi-PERi chicken.

But we're not so sure, as two fruity flavours combined could make your savoury dish overly sweet.

The flavour joins Nando's so-called PERi-ometer seasoning barometer, which also includes the following in order from mild to spicy: Plain… ish, lemon and herb, medium, hot, and extra hot.

Passion fruit and mango will slot into the same barometer spot as mango and lime, which is also the same level of spice as lemon and herb.

It won't cost any extra – you simply select the flavouring as you normally would when ordering your chicken.

And Nando's has hinted that more new seasonings are yet to come, saying "watch this space for more information on which seasonal flavour will be joining the PERi-ometer next".

Nando's recently launched a new "Mozam wrap" that's filled with spicy chicken and a pineapple and coconut chutney.

It's also trialling a new £6 lunch meal deal at 37 branches across the UK.

But Nando’s, as well as other fast-food chains, have been slammed for using chickens that grow so fast they develop lameness and skin sores.
