Happy Guacamole Day! Wholly Guacamole & Salsa Giveaway Celebration!
Today, Semptember 16, is National Guacamole Day! And what a perfect time to hold a giveaway for my favorite guacamole and salsa made by Eat Wholly.
I recently received a cooler on my doorstep and was thrilled to find Eat Wholly guacamole and salsas inside. I had been wanting to try the new salsas and have been in love with the guac for years.
I still remember the first time that I had guacamole. It was years ago in a small Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles. They made the guacamole at the table with fresh ingredients and I was hooked. Since then, I have made my own, had it in other places, and tried to find something comparable, but the only one that tastes as good as homemade is Wholly Guacamole. It's really the only one for me.
And now, how fun to try the new salsas! I loved them. Along with the Classic Mild, Medium and Hot, they have come up with some amazing new flavors: Wholly Salsa Pineapple, Red Pepper Mango, Roasted Tomato, Avocado Verde, and Guacamole & Spicy Pico.
I really can't recommend these salsas highly enough. Aside from my own, they are the best I've had.
My favorites are the Guac & Spicy Pico - the combination of the classic guac with the chunky, pico de gallo salsa is my new favorite.
I also love the Avocado Verde, based on a traditional Mexican green sauce with tomatillo and salsa verde - very rich avocado flavor with a bite.
The Red Pepper Mango with spicy red peppers and sweet orange mangos was unlike any other salsa, fruity, not too spicy or sweet, and a great pick-me-up with other dishes.
Speaking of other dishes, although these are amazing dips, salsa is not just for chips any more!
When I crave a snack during the day, you will often find me with my carrot and celery sticks experimenting with the different flavors.
The Guac and Spicy Pico is outstanding with breakfast eggs, breakfast burritos, and I love it on my burgers.
The Avocado Verde makes an awesome salad dressing and is great with Pasta and Chicken.
I love the Red Pepper Mango as a base for spaghetti sauce, to spice up a fruit salad, and it's also amazing on grilled salmon.
Really, the only limit is your imagination!
The snack pack guacamoles are my favorites, but there are so many options including homestyle, classic and spicy. A new addition to the family is the Wholly Avocado Chunky Dip.
This is 100% pure, unaltered avocado that is ready anytime you need it or crave it. Sometimes you buy avocados and they are underripe or overripe, but with this wonderful package, you'll never have to worry about having fresh avocados that are perfect on hand. Wholesome and delicious, these will stay good in your freezer for up to 3 months.
I try to always have Wholly treats on hand and they taste just as good whether I just bought them or they've been in my freezer. I can't imagine a turkey sandwich without Wholly Guac.
So, Happy Guacamole Day, one and all. This is one of my favorite holidays!
