What better time of year to set out the chips and dips than during NFL season, especially with the Superbowl just over a week away. Also, what better time to eat healthier than January, while so many of us have made that resolution to lose weight and make better choices! I am a big chips and dip fan, always have been, but so many ready made options on the market are full of saturated fat, calories, and chemicals! There had to be better products out there, and when I was introduced to Wholly Guacamole, I found that answer to be absolutely true!

In 1989 Dallas restaurant owner Don Bowden searched for a ready made guacamole to serve in his Mexican restaurants. He quickly realized that since avocados brown so easily after being sliced, so keeping anything all natural and fresh the way he wanted it wouldn’t be easy. During his search, he discovered High Pressure Processing (HPP) technology that could preserve foods using high pressure water, rather than heat or chemicals. That process became know as fresherized, and today Fresherized Foods, home of Wholly Guacamole products, is the largest user of HPP technology in the world!

Wholly Guacamole, Salsa, and Queso are made of nothing but natural ingredients. All of them contain no preservatives, artificial flavors, or heat treatments. So you get the great, fresh taste of homemade, with the convenience of store bought!

I have to admit I am a bit spoiled when it comes to food. My husband is an amazing cook, and his homemade guacamole is outstanding, so I have always walked around the store like a bit of a snob when it came to packaged, ready made guac or dips in general. When we received a giant cooler full of Wholly Guacamole, queso, and salsa I immediately noticed it was not the same murky green as store bought guacamole usually is. It was bright and looked freshly made. That night when my husband came home we sampled some Wholly Guacamole products during our evening snack and I can honestly say that they have changed my entire opinion!

The Wholly Guacamoles were outstanding! It seriously tasted like my husband had whipped up a batch 5 minutes before we ate it. Delicious! We’ve since added it to sandwiches, burritos, and of course more chips. Wholly Guacamole offers convenient 100 calorie snack packs that are filling, great for lunches, and perfect for those of you watching your weight like I am!

The Wholly Salsas were honestly some of the best, fresh tasting salsas I have ever had, and my husband, sister, and brother in law agrees! The mild was perfect me and the kids, while the medium was perfect for my husband. He actually asked me to add in my review that he loves spicy foods, and often, when companies advertise spicy products, it doesn’t live up to it, but Wholly’s spicy guac and salsas did! They also tasted as if we had just made it ourselves and at only 10 calories for every 2 tablespoons, it’s a dip option that’s just as guiltless as it is scrumptious!

The Wholly Quesos were excellent as well. Cheesy and ooey gooey, with just the right amount of zing! If I wasn’t watching my weight so intensely right now, I would eat much more! We plan to save some of our Classic and White Queso for our small Superbowl party!

We were so impressed with all of the Wholly Guacamole products, that I plan to buy more 100 calorie snack packs this weekend to have on hand anytime we feel like some goodness!
