Wholly Guacamole Review & Giveaway!

I belong to the Wholly Blogger Family and the nice folks there sent me coupons to try their Wholly Guacamole Products for review.  I received no compensation other than the coupons and was asked to give my honest opinion, which I am including below:

In 1989, Dallas restaurant owner, Don Bowden began searching for a pre-made guacamole to serve in his Mexican restaurants. It had to be fresh-tasting and all-natural. The problem is that avocadoes start to brown as soon as you cut them open.  Don ultimately discovered what is known as High Pressure Processing (HPP).  This is a process of preserving foods through the use of high-pressure water rather than with heat or chemicals.    He went on to apply the HPP to guacamole resulting in a completely 100% all-natural, fresh tasting product that can be refrigerated for weeks and frozen for month with no loss in taste, texture or vitamin content.  This process became known as “Fresherized” and today Fresherized Foods is home to Wholly Guacamole.  Wholly Guacamole is now the world’s largest user of HPP Technology and the best selling brand of pre-made guacamole in the United States.

There really isn’t anything not to love about Wholly Guacamole.  It not only tastes good, but is good for you too!  It is free of any additives or preservatives, and Hass Avocados are the primary ingredient.  Avocados are loaded with nutrients like potassium, folic acid, glutathione and vitamin E.  Researchers have even discovered that avocados are rich in beta-sitosterol, a natural substance shown to significantly lower blood cholesterol levels. Avocados do have some fat, but it is the healthy monounsaturated fat so there’s no need to feel guilty about enjoying some of this wonderful guacamole!

Wholly Guacamole is the official guacamole sponsor to the 2011 season of the Biggest Loser and they are all about healthy choices.   They offer a wide of  guacamole products, with some of the most popular being Classic, Spicy and the chunkier Pico De Gallo Style.  They also offer a 100 calorie sized packages.  I tried the Classic version and it was absolutely delicious with just the right amount of spice and garlic.  I could easily eat this stuff right out of the package, but I refrained from that and instead used it as a topping for tacos, cheese crisps and of course as a chip dip.

In addition to their famous guacamole, Wholly also makes salsa and queso.  The salsa comes in Mild, Medium & Hot versions.  I purchased the Medium version and was really surprised at how fresh it tasted.  It could easily pass as homemade.   The flavor had just the right amount of “pep” to it and wasn’t too hot or spicy.  The texture was just right with the tomatoes being just slightly crisp.  I used it on my cheese crisp (the same one that had the guacamole on it), and also added it to my omelet.  It was just plain delicious!  I also liked the size of the containers, which come in convenient little 4 packs and are perfect for taking to work (or anywhere else) with a bag of tortilla chips for a tasty snack.   They even offer a “Double Dip” product that combines the guacamole and the salsa, which my store did not carry, but it sounds like the best of both worlds to me!

You can find Wholly Products in most grocery chains, including Walmart, Kroger, Safeway and Costco.  Be sure to visit their Website regularly because they frequently run coupon promotions and other special offers.  Right now they are offering a $1.50 coupon for signing up for their newsletter at the Chips & Flips Party.    The website also contains all sorts of delicious recipes, fun avocado facts, helpful product information, and even a section for the kids.  Don’t forget to connect with them on Facebook and Twitter because they love to have fun and interact with their fans.
