Friday Stuff!

YAY!!! It's FRIDAY!!!... and you know where to find me right?  
Come check it out or you'll be missing this:


Stop by and say hi!!

But wait!!  Stick around for my other news first!!!  If you pressure :)

The other week I told you that I was contacted by the Wholly Guacamole company and they asked if I would look at their website and give them some feed back.  I did so and then they graciously offered to send me some product for review.  I was excited, yet a little nervous.  What if I got their product and I hated it and then I would have to tell them that... AAAAAAAAA!!!

Anyway... I received their samples... check it out:

Yea, that's what I said.... there is a lot of stuff.... and it all looked good!!  Where to start, where to start???

100 calorie pack - Spicy Guacamole:

Opinion:  I have to say...I'm not one to really like manufactured, store bought products like this.  When it comes to guacamole, I definitely prefer the homemade kind.  I have tried other store bought products and, well, I have not been impressed.  This... this made me stop and go... hhhmmmmmmmm... this is actually pretty good!  I will admit that I was pleasantly surprised.  Even Chris, who really is picky about his guacamole, devoured it.  I would buy this.  I would serve this.  It's gluten free, it's kosher, it's preservative free, it was fantastic!  Ok, I wouldn't choose it over homemade, but in a pinch or in a state of laziness, hell yea, I would purchase it!

Second on the list - Classic Queso Dip:

Opinion:  YUM!  It was really good... like homemade queso.  I was, once again, a bit shocked at how good it was.  What was really cool about this queso... It didn't get hard when it started to cool down.  Ok, it got a bit thicker, but it never got hard, like Velveeta does after it's been cooled down.  So that was a nice little bonus.  A blogging friend of mine said she has tried this queso and thought it was way salty, so beware.  I didn't find that at all, but I think I have a higher tolerance for salty food.

Next up - Salsa:

Opinion:  Salsa perfection. Seriously, I'm not one for really chunky salsas...this salsa had the perfect chunky factor.  The flavors were wonderful too.

100 calorie pack - Classic Guacamole:

Opinion:  Like the spicy guac, it was a pleasant surprise at how good it was.  Chris and I both store bought product we've tried in a long time.

So all in all... the products that the Wholly Guacamole company sent me were really good.  Now, I'm one that would rather make it or have a homemade version of these products, but hey, sometimes you just can't always have it that way...and when you can't, these are great substitutes!

Check back next week when I put some of the products to use in a few fantastic recipes!

***Please note:  The opinions stated here are just that, MY opinion.  I was not reimbursed in anyway for my product review.***

I haven't tried the other products, but love their Wholly Guacamole. I think it IS just guacamole, only it's in a package. There's no added stuff. I like that! Have a great weekend, Jenn.

Andrea the Kitchen Witch said...

Great review Jenn! I see their products go on sale often, I'll have to grab a pack of guac for an emergency topper to a turkey sandwich :) How cool that you got to do a product review!

Jenn, you did an excellent job on this review! And the picture of that chicken is making me hungry. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Unknown said...

How could you go wrong with Guacamole? That salsa doesn't look half bad either.
