By now, my Blog & Twitter Followers and Facebook Fans know how I love fresh food. I mean FRESH. If it is just picked off the tree or from a bush, this gal is a happy eater.

One of my favorite vegetables is Avocado and Fruit are Tomatoes (remember, Tomatoes are fruits!)

Salsa, Sun Dried, Guacamole, raw, sliced, diced – I have eaten it all

So, to say I am quite picky about my salsa and guacamole is an understatement. It must taste fresh or it doesn’t get past the first bite with me.

A few weeks ago I received an incredible box at my front door step. From Wholly Guacamole. Full of fresh salsa, guacamole and cheese sauce.

I took an unconventional approach to a reviewing this food item. I wanted to see what I could do with the products that had nothing to do with what the product actually is.

  • I made a salad dressing with olive oil and guacamole. It was also great for drizzling on pasta

  • I spread salsa on my kids favorite grilled cheese sandwiches

  • I mixed in the cheese sauce for our homemade macaroni and cheese
  • And yes, I tried it with chips, too!

Nothing disappointed me. The flavors were true, they were....FRESH

What I did learn, is this is the official Salsa, Cheese Sauce and Guacamole of the Biggest Loser. I had no idea!

If a show like the Biggest Loser will permit this product to be on their show – it has to be fresh. Afterall, why risk the show’s reputation on inferior products.

Do I recommend this product? Absolutely! 

Now – here is the good part – how would YOU like to win a cooler full of free products?

This ALL can be yours!

  16. I love wholly foods, I am so glad that you wrote this blog about the other uses for these products. I didn't use to like guacamole until I tried it at a demo from Sam's Club. Now it's one of my favorite "snacks". My niece is a vegetarian so she eats a lot of avacodos but it gets kind of boring, so I told her to eat some of this as opposed to buying all the ingredients and making it herself, way cheaper this way. I would love to win these freebies.
