Mr & Mrs Fruit

Special thanks to Mr & Mrs Fruit Natural's Candy for extending this food review invitation.

Mr & Mrs Fruit Natural's Candy is a fruit store at i-Avenue. The shop occupies the former location of Happy Meal and is sandwiched between 7-Eleven and Shen Food & Beverages (陞卤味专卖店).
Mr & Mrs Fruit supplies local and imported fruits at the retail level. Unlike most fruit stores, Mr & Mrs Fruit also specializes in bringing in exotic fruits that are not commonly stocked elsewhere. Some of these fruits are seasonal, so customers can expect to see different varieties every month.
Examples of fruits sold here are pineapples, mango, banana, papaya, watermelon, guava, plum and peach. More exotic fruits include kiwifruit (green, red and golden), pitaya (dragon fruit), avocado, persimmon, hami melon and sugar-apple.
Mr & Mrs Fruit also sells fresh palm dates from Egypt and China. Sweet in nature, these dates produce sappy sensation in the mouth. It is uncommon to see fresh palm dates in retail stores. Usually the dried version, called kurma in Malay, is sold instead.
Another attraction at Mr & Mrs Fruit are its blended juices and cold-pressed juices. Taken directly from the shelves, actual fruits are used to produce pure fruit juices.

One such example is Shingo pear (신고배), which is a special cultivar of Asian pear from Korea. Taking advantage of the fruit's honey-like sweetness, the drink does not contain any added sugar. Optionally, customers can also sprinkle some chia seeds onto the drink at no extra charge.
The best pomegranates are grown in India, and these are the most suitable ones for juicing. Unlike those from other regions, Indian pomegranates do not taste sour at all. The drink's intrinsic sweetness is soothing as it trickles down the throat. Preparing pomegranate juice is tedious because the seeds have to be plucked by hand. White membrane must be removed as its intense bitterness ruins the overall enjoyment.
Besides fresh fruits, Mr & Mrs Fruit also sells dried fruits, oats, quinoa, nuts and seeds. Employees of large companies like Intel and Motorola enjoy 5% discount on fresh fruits and juices. Despite being small in scale, Mr & Mrs Fruit is able to offer competitive pricing even when compared to large hypermarkets.
