Wholly Guacamole and Hormel Natural Choice - A Great Combination, and Some Fun Stuff up For Grabs, Too!

Have you ever tried Wholly Guacamole products?  Their Guacamole  Salsa and Queso are all fantastic, and come in different varieties, so that everybody can find a favorite.  They are a great (and healthy) alternative to traditional dips, dressings and sandwich spreads.

I really like the individual 100 calorie packets.  They can also be frozen, so that I always have some around.  I'm all about convenience, but too often convenience comes hand in hand with unhealthy.  Wholly Guacamole doesn't require that trade off.  It's fresh, it tastes great, and it's easy for at home or on the go.

Just before Christmas, I got this great assortment in the mail.  Included was a box of original Wholly Guacamole, a box of the spicy variety, and a package of Hormel's Natural Choice Oven Roasted Deli Turkey.   For fun, they added a New York Yankees bag clip (go Yankees!) and a cute Wholly Guacamole stress relieving squeezer that is shaped like an avocado that has been cut in half.

The guacamole is all natural.  The real Haas Avocados provide a great, fresh taste with 20 vitamins and minerals.  It's gluten free, has no transfats, and as I mentioned, I love the packaging for portion control, snacking on the go, or freezing.

The turkey was well sealed, so it locked in the 100% natural goodness without any preservatives.  These meats are also gluten free and MSG free.  There are no nitrates, no artificial colors or flavors, and depending on the variety they are either 100% or 98% transfat free as well.  The meat is from animals raised without any added hormones.  This is really quite remarkable.  In fact, it is the first (and only) nationally distributed line of lunch meats that can make these claims.

In addition to being a healthy choice - both the guacamole and the turkey are, in my opinion, delicious, and taste great together.  I used the guacamole instead of mayo and made a very nice wrap sandwich.  My husband had his sandwich on traditional bread.

Whether used as a spread, a dip, or in a recipe, the guacamole is outstanding.  The turkey is perfect for sandwiches salads, or the way my son likes it - just by itself!  Hormel Natural also offers carved chicken breast, bacon, ham, Canadian bacon and pepperoni in addition to the packaged deli lunch meat.
