When you get down to it, guacamole is a damned sexy food. Evocative of Latin beats, Latin dancers, and Ricky Martin's ass, it's spicy, creamy, silky, and good for you. How many foods can boast that? It's easily one of my top ten favorite foods, a close third on the list to human flesh and tacos, respectively.
Wholly Guacamole was nice enough to send over a massive cooler of goodies, not the least of which included these 100 calorie packs of guacamole. I need you to know one thing before you continue reading- I really, really hate the concept of 100 calorie packs, mainly that of Nabisco. The snacks aren't worth the 100 calories and are usually fluffed by advertisements of overweight women proclaiming how full they feel after eating them. No soapbox, I'm just not a fan.This portion is actually quite substantial, whether you're scooping it up with chips off our lover's body and pretending they're bleeding alien blood or eating it at a nude potluck. 100 calories goes pretty far and doesn't make me feel like I'm missing out on my favorite snacks. This one pack fed Keepitcoming and I before we had dinner and added pizazz to our chips. The avocado is the star here, no surprise, but for a packaged guacamole, it's nice to have such a fresh flavor. There are visible chunks and a nice, natural buttery taste. It's fresh and green and delightful. My only complaint is that this isn't spicy enough. (We added hot sauce and queso!) I'm a spiceaholic, so I'd have really enjoyed eating Wholly Guacamole's spicy guac in such an easy pack. And that's the only gripe I have. Really, I'm a sucker for packaging like this. It's easy to toss in a lunchbox instead of making guac and putting it in Tupperware, risking its spillage, refrigerates perfectly fine, and saves the hassle of opening an entire package of pre-made guac and letting it spoil, assuming you don't eat it in one fell swoop. An innovative and fantastic idea to target foodies like myself.
