Stop by and say hi!!
But wait!! Stick around for my other news first!!! If you want...no 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 agreed....best 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.***
