My name is Brandy, and I am a bona fide Guac-O-Holic. I love guacamole more than Paula Deen loves butter. I will eat it on pretty much anything, from sandwiches, steaks, and chicken to hot dogs, baked potatoes, and even on mac and cheese! And of course I use it on tacos and other Mexican fare, as well. Guacamole is so much more than just a dip! (Although it makes a fantastic one!) Yep...I've got it bad. There may be a 12-Step program somewhere, but to be honest, I LIKE my addiction.
While I make a killer homemade guacamole, I don't often do it. Since my husband hates avocados, I find that half of it ends up spoiling before I get the chance to eat it all. When avocados are exposed to oxygen, they tend to brown quite quickly. This can be slowed by adding lemon or lime juice, but it happens, nonetheless.
That's why I generally turn to Wholly Guacamole to fuel my obsession. It's literally the next best thing to homemade. And since Wholly Guacamole uses no icky preservatives, all you taste is the wonderful flavor of the ingredients, just as nature intended. You see, to keep their guacamole at the peak of freshness, the folks at Wholly Guacamole use High Pressure Processing (HPP) technology. It’s a process of preserving foods through the use of high-pressure water rather than with heat or chemicals and is used in the preservation of some meats and vegetables. With guacamole, the end product is a completely 100% all-natural, fresh tasting product that can be refrigerated for weeks and frozen for months. The salt in their product is used for flavor only. The HPP technology is also the reason our product is able to retain the same great taste, texture and natural vitamins while ensuring the highest level of food safety.
Wholly Guacamole uses Haas Avocados, which are the best of the best, and they jazz up their guac with just the right blend of spices and fresh ingredients. There are no artificial flavors to be found. Wholly Guacamole comes in a mouthwatering variety of flavors like Spicy, Guaca-Salsa, and even Organic! They even have 100 Calorie Packs for those watching their figures.
In addition to their amazing guacamole, this great company also offers a variety of fresh salsas and even a queso dip that is to die for. If I could, I would happily live off of these products alone. After all, avocados are a wonderful source of vitamins and contain "good" fats that our bodies need to function properly!
The awesome folks at Wholly Guacamole sent me a cooler full of guac-goodness for me to enjoy. Included were a couple bags of Garden of Eatin' Blue Chips. These are a perfect accompaniment to the delicious guacamole and salsas! Blue Chips are organic, gluten-free, and are made of only the highest quality blue corn. I really enjoyed the flavor of these chips, as they had a slight saltiness and just the right amount of crunch. Another thing I liked about Garden of Eatin's Blue Chips is that they held up well to my guacamole! A lot of chips will break mid-dip, but these ones didn't. They are perfect for scooping up every last drop of guacamole! Yum!
But like I said, guacamole is for more than just dipping. It goes well on everything! (In my opinion.) Today for lunch I had a couple of hot dogs with cheese and slathered in Wholly Guacamole's Spicy Guac! Yum! What a way to transform a boring old hot dog!
Overall, I am loving Wholly Guacamole now, more than ever. I was able to try some of the varieties that I was unfamiliar with, such as the Double Dip, and I am definitely adding this to my shopping lists from now on. I also loved the paring of Wholly Guacamole with the Garden of Eatin' Blue Chips. These complemented each other perfectly, and are definitely a match made in Wholly Heaven! Now excuse me...I need to go get my guac on!
