Wholly Guacamole review and giveaway!

A couple of weeks ago, I got something awesome in the mail: a cooler full of Wholly Guacamole products, including their four new salsas!

I signed up to be a member of the Guac Squad a while back because I think Wholly products are just awesome. They're always fresh, and they have no preservatives or additives and plenty of flavor. I was really excited to get a chance to try all the new flavors!

 Now that I've tried everything, the awesome people at Wholly Guacamole are letting me give a similar cooler of goodies away to one of you!  Here are my thoughts on what I received.

This was my absolute favorite product in the box - the Avocado Verde salsa. It's just what it sounds like - yummy salsa verde mixed with creamy avocado. It's full of yummy tomatillos and chunks of hass avocado. I ate this on some chips, but I think it would be amaaaazing with some enchiladas! It's got a zing to it without being too hot. I've already bought more of it!

This is a pretty simple product - Wholly has taken ripe avocados and scooped them into a package for us, nothing more or less. I used this on sandwiches, but it'd be a great way to make your own guacamole while taking the effort and guesswork out of finding and preparing perfectly ripe avocados. 

I was happy to get some of the 100 calorie snack packs in classic - I love to take these to work with me! They're the perfect single serving size and the packs are super convenient and not at all messy. I love Wholly's classic guacamole, it's perfectly balanced.

This Guacamole with Spicy Pico is great for dipping! The bottom layer is smooth, creamy classic guacamole, but it's topped with spicy, chunky pico de gallo. The pico on its own is a bit spicy for my taste, but it is mellowed out beautifully by the guacamole.

The three classic flavors of salsa are what you'd expect - just a great, fresh tasting salsa full of fresh veggies. The hot variety is too spicy for me on it's own, but I love using it in a queso dip or in chili! It has more flavor than just "HOT", the heat has a lot of taste behind it.


The medium is my favorite of the three classics. It's got a bit of a zing, but just the right amount for me! I use it on everything from chips to burritos.

The mild is great for those who want flavor without spice - it's super fresh tasting, with no heat. I like to put it on tacos!

The pineapple is another new offering. Made of pineapple, roasted pepper, and ginger, it's definitely a different taste! It's sweet, as you'd expect, but there's a bit of zip to it, as well. Wholly recommends putting it over vanilla ice cream, which I haven't tried, but I did enjoy it on a salad with grilled chicken! It'd also be good on a shrimp dish or with rice and pork chops for a sweet n sour type dish.

The Red Pepper Mango flavor is my mom's favorite of the bunch. It's so good! Sweet, but not too sweet, and full of mangos and red peppers. I plan to try it on some shrimp tacos and meatballs.

The roasted tomato salsa is delicious. It is a thinner, less chunky salsa with the complex, smoky flavor of roasted tomatoes and a bit of lime. It would be an amazing addition to spaghetti sauce, chili, or anyplace you use canned tomatoes.

And finally, more 100 calorie snack packs in the spicy flavor. I love these with some sour cream on burritos! They're just spicy enough. Mmm. 

They also included a cute avocado stress ball, which I've been using like crazy, let me tell ya. :)

So, sound good? Enter below for a chance to win your own cooler of goodies from Wholly.

Do sell in all areas of the US?

Ooh, I've tried the Hot one awhile back but that red pepper mango sounds SO good! I don't think they had that at the store I go to most frequently.... Making queso with the hot salsa is a great idea! I might have to pick some up again and do that.
