Be #RedCarpetReady With Wholly Guacamole® and Daily’s Cocktails® - Giveaway
As the first snowflakes started to come down from blizzard Nemo, my awesome UPS driver arrived with a package of goodies from Wholly Guacamole and Daily’s Cocktails.
It couldn’t have been better timing, I had a big batch of turkey chili in the crock pot and what goes better with that than delicious salsa, guacamole and frozen drinks?
I rolled out the red carpet for the food and drinks and grabbed the Oscar nominated “ParaNorman” for us to watch.
I started out with a bowl of chili topped with the homestyle guacamole. I was really surprised by how fresh it was! I normally make my own guacamole and tend to steer clear of pre-packaged, but this tasted homemade! It was my favorite out of the three I tried. (homestyle, original & spicy.) All of their products that I tried tasted really fresh. I also tried 3 of their salsas, classic medium, red pepper mango & guacamole with spicy pico. The classic was a really great tasting salsa, but my favorite was the red pepper mango. It was the perfect blend of sweet and spicy.
Some of my favorite things about their products were that they were all natural, had no preservatives and no GMOs and also, the guacamole comes in 2 packets so you can enjoy one when you buy it and freeze the 2nd one for up to 3 months!
I was able to find the Daily’s Cocktail frozen pouches in a variety of flavors at my local liquor store. I picked the peach daiquiri and strawberry daiquiri to try out. I admit, I was a little skeptical of these. I had tried a similar product from a different company before and they were overly sweet and had a weird consistency. I’m happy to say these were different. You just have to pop them in the freezer for ahead of time (at least 8 hours) and then tear them open and pour them in a glass. Bam! – perfectly mixed frozen cocktail. The strawberry was my favorite. Not too sweet and it had sort of a shaved ice consistency which was perfect. The peach was a little sweeter than the strawberry but still good. I really want to try the frozen lemonade and pomegranate acai margarita flavors they have. Hopefully I can find them soon!
As for ParaNorman – it had great animation and an interesting story line but it was incredibly slow-paced! Oh well, at least we had a great feast!
