I found frozen Breadfruit (Mapén) tostones at Publix and my happiness went sky rocket. I love this veggie fresh; however, I don’t find it fresh anywhere in the mainland. So, I am grateful to GOYA for making it available, even though it’s frozen. At first I was skeptical; however, my worries disappeared when I fried and tasted them. No Mayo-Ketchup needed, just plain crunchy MAPEN tostones!
