Wholly Guacamole Review & Giveaway! - Bring Healthy To The Party! - CLOSED - WINNER!


Thank you all for entering and forgive me bubble brain :)

The winner is Night Owl Mama. 


Congratulations! I've sent you an email. 






*******
Are you a Guacamole fan?  I wasn't before! I mean I liked pear and all but I was so used to having those huge slices from the fruit itself that I didn't know that the pear itself wasn't guacamole. 

Let me explain this difference we have. In my country we have huge pears and here in the US there are those tiny weird looking things that you can't tell if or when they are ripe until you squeeze them and by then it's too late! The pears in my country change color as they ripen. It is delightful thing to watch a healthy pear and know you'll be having that on a nice fat dumpling (johnny cake) or fat slice of hard-dough bread!

The second part of our difference is that we call it "pear" in my country and here in the US, y'all call it avocado. And trust me, the dumpling I just mentioned up there is nothing like what is made here either! Ahh the celebration of cultural meetings :)
Wholly Guacamole sent me some of their products to review and do a giveaway and all I can say is ...um wait, I didn't say anything, my mouth was just having a party!! When we'd go to restaurant, I'd quickly skip over the guacamole references, I mean who want crushed pears (avocado), I thought.  But if someone had told me the difference between guacamole and a slice of avocado (both very healthy by the way), I'd want to go to Mexican restaurants more often!
At first it took me awhile to muster the eat vibe. I don't do tacos anymore. It just grew off me. After tasting this party in my mouth (Wholly Guacamole), I can't wait to do tacos again! Gosh I'm almost salivating just thinking about it!
I went with crackers and chips to try the guacamole snack packs and salsas. I just wanted to taste it without making a meal of it, but the moment I sampled it, I just couldn't stop myself! Then the kids wanted a taste and I thought, they'd just taste and go away so I can enjoy this all by myself for now, but no, they wanted more and more and more and I had to go get more packs and more crackers and chips and made it a whole meal! The kiddies loved it too!
Oh you absolutely have to try this, even just once!  
The products I received are: 100 Calorie Snack Pack, New Wholly Classic Queso, Wholly Blanco Queso, Wholly All Natural Salsa (Med), Wholly guacamole Spicy, Wholly Guac Classic, Wholly Salsa All natural snack packs (4) (mild)
100 Calorie Snack Packs - These are the most yummies. The spices all mixed together with the avocado and you know it's healthy and gosh it tastes so good! The kids get one each and had two in one sitting! They are perfect for picnic baskets, lunch boxes (yay for back to school lunches), or just snacking at home. They are healthy and did you see the dietary fiber in that list?! 


New Wholly Queso (Classic and Blanco): 
Yummy mixture of real cheese and spices with veggies are perfect for dipping or adding to a slice of bread or bagel or anything else you want to use! Healthy and yum! I love it best on my bagels and salads. Not so much the bread. The chips and crackers still apply!!


Wholly Salsa (all natural, spicy and classic): 
I requested mild or medium because unlike when I was pregnant, I'm totally a wuss when it comes to hot spices. I do not want my mouth on fire. I want to enjoy my food :) Plus I have kids and I always have to take into account they'll scream and cry at the mere tingling of their tongue! They are getting better at it though, After all, they live in cajun country :)
The Wholly Guacamole Salsa - mild wasn't too hot (spicy) at all, but the kids really didn't want to finish their hotdogs because they said it was, and apparently the apple juice was not helping to calm their tongues.


The next day they did respond better to the mild one and we enjoyed our meal together. They kept telling me, they liked this food :)
My hubs can go ahead and finish the other salsa when he returns and I promise you he is the hot and spicy sort so he'll love this! 


The salsas taste great! Better than the ones my dh chooses. Ok he choose good ones, but they are more on the 'fiya' side :) Maybe that's why I can't actually taste it! These are also preservative free.


The Wholly Guacamole salsas also comes in snack pack sizes for the grab and go meal! I love the Wholly Guacamole and I'm glad I got this chance to sample their products. This is one that will definitely be on my shopping list and they are at Walmart!! 


This is perfect for football season get togethers, when you will be eating with family and friends and the strange people with question signs on their heads :) Please grab some and share. It's already made and perfect with almost anything. 


They have just launched a new website where you can find lots of coupons, recipes and prizes etc. If you are into football and sweepstakes fun then this is the place to be! Visit them at Homegating HQ learn more and enter to win!
Thursday is also National Guacamole Day and they'll have a coupon on their website! Go check it out and celebrate the day with healthy choices!


WIN IT: One reader will win a cooler full of Wholly Guacamole products like I did and another will receive a coupon to try the products.
