Wholly Guacamole! You'd think with the way I was craving guacamole before this review I was pregnant. I can happily say that I am not! I am also happy to report I have had my guac fix for probably at least the next year. Wholly Guacamole, being the awesome company they are, sent me a huge cooler packed with 1,000 different varieties of guacamole and salsa. OK, so that 1,000 is a bit of an exaggeration, but they did send 11 different varieties along with a chip clip and an avocado stress reliever... which my daughter took a giant bite out of. Mmmmm foam. Whatever, she can have the foam, and I'll keep the guac to myself. Actually, I'm the only person in my entire family that likes guac, so this was alllll for meeeee! :D
I'm not much of a cook, and since my family doesn't like guac (I think there is something wrong with them), I took the traditional route, and used it as a dip. I think I had chips and guac for a week straight - breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We're talking Wholly Organic Guac, Pico de Gallo, Guac & Spicy Pico, Spicy Guac, Classic Guac, Chunky Guac, 100 Calorie Guac Packs, and of course the salsa! Whew, that was a guac-full, erm I mean a mouth-full.
My absolute favorite was the Guacamole and Spicy Pico. I like my foods to have flavor and texture. This really was the perfect combination for me. The guac was a little chunky and on the bottom, and on top was a nice layer of pico. It had that nice kick to it along with a great texture. It wasn't just smooth. I also really liked the plastic container it came in, and the fact that it had a lid. Scrumptious! I ate that first, and devoured it within an hour.
My next favorite was the Spicy Guacamole. This is guac mixed with salsa. Wasn't quite the same texture, but it had that nice kick breaking up the monotone flavor of the avocado. I was so overwhelmed with guac I forgot to freeze some of it, so unfortunately a few containers went bad before I had the chance to get to them. (You can freeze Wholly Guacamole for up to 3 months!) However, all of the Wholly Guacamole I tried was great. I just had some personal favorites. I did really enjoy the Original and Chunky Guacamole too, but it was a little dull. We happened to be having tacos for dinner one night, so I put some of the Original Guacamole on the tacos and had a great array of flavors.
The 100 Calorie Wholly Guacamole Snack Packs were great for when you want just a small snack. Honestly, I ate two at a time, so maybe they should make these 200 Calorie Snack Packs? This is great to take to work with you to eat at your desk, or give the kiddos when they're wanting a snack but not needing a full meal. They open easily, but I thought the packaging was a little flimsy. I couldn't get to all of the guac because of the creases. I'll admit it. I licked the packaging. Shhhh!
The Mild and Medium Wholly Salsa is getting mixed reviews from me. I like how fresh it tasted - like it just came out of the kitchen. I thought that was a great bonus, because some of the salsa that lasts forever just has a very processed flavor. However, I didn't like the texture. It was too fine, and seemed a little too pureed. Keep in mind that judging food is very subjective, kind of like art. Everyone has a different pallet, so just because I didn't like the food doesn't mean it's bad, it just means it wasn't something I personally liked. They do have 5 brand new flavors of Wholly Salsa (which include the Avacado and Spicy Pico that I tried) that sound super yummy though: Red Pepper Mango, Roasted Tomato, Pineapple, and Avacado Verde.
