I love guacamole, so I grabbed a Wholly Guacamole 100 Calorie Snack Pack to enjoy. High in nutrition and healthy fat, with no cholesterol!
I have tried Wholly Guacamole before, but it had been awhile and I didn't want to buy a large pack of this when I am the only one in our house who would eat it, so I bought a 100 calorie snack pack. How convenient!
Wholly Guacamole: Package
Wholly Guacamole is available in several different sized containers and flavors. I bought myself a small snack size, or personal size, container of 2 ounces (57 grams) of the Classic Guacamole variety. The price is fair at only $0.79. It comes in a plastic container that you can easily peel off the top. This is very convenient for travel or to pack in lunches to take to school or work.
The label is mostly yellow and white with purple writing. The brand name "Wholly Guacamole" appears in white capital letters near the very top of the label and a large bold "100" in purple letters is near the middle, indicating this pack has only 100 calories.
Flavor and Texture
The taste of Wholly Guacamole Classic is just as I remembered from years ago. It is creamy with a few small chunks of avocado, although this doesn't make it "lumpy" by any means. The flavor is mild and buttery with all the ingredients mingling together perfectly. I can detect a hint of onion and garlic, but the real star is, of course, avocado. The color is a typical bright and creamy green tone, just like most guacamole. I think it's delicious and I would certainly buy it again just for the flavor and convenience alone!
Although this product contains jalapeno peppers, it's not spicy. They do offer a spicy version for those who prefer spicy guacamole.
Even though the package isn't very large, it is very fulfilling for one serving and provided enough to keep me satisfied. In my opinion, it's the perfect serving size.

Here's a fun fact from their website: "The avocado tree is a flowering plant. The avocado, is a berry fruit with one large seed in the center. Hass avocado trees descended from a single "mother tree" which was derived from unknown subspecies of avocado trees. Sadly, the "mother tree" died of root rot and was cut down in September, 2002. Native to Mexico, the avocado can be traced back to 10,000 BC and known to be part of the Aztec culture."
