The Makers of the WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE Brand Introduce Extra Chunky Restaurant Style Guacamole


Orange, Calif.

America’s No.1 refrigerated guacamole brand* responds to consumers’ desire for authentic, tableside guacamole flavors at home

The makers of the WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE brand, America’s No. 1 refrigerated guacamole, today announced their latest creation: WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE Extra Chunky Restaurant Style guacamole. With more than half of consumers** considering restaurant guacamole to be the “gold standard,” the latest brand innovation delivers on consumer taste preferences by bridging the gap between tableside guacamole and wanting to enjoy the same craveable guacamole at home.

“A large majority (62%**) of people are changing their spending habits — and stretching their dollars further with meals at home,” said Chris Monahan, brand manager of WHOLLY® products. “This trend inspired us to recreate the tableside guac experience in a convenient format for our fans, so they can enjoy the same great flavor of their favorite Mexican restaurant in the comfort of their homes. Because it’s made with real, hand-scooped Hass avocados, chunky vegetables and authentic spices, it’s a delicious and appealing option that is as close as it gets to a restaurant experience.”

WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE Extra Chunky Restaurant Style is made with tasty chunks of real, 100% Hass avocados — which are always hand-scooped at the height of freshness — tomatoes and red onions, as well as cilantro, lime juice, jalapeño peppers and the perfect blend of seasonings to give it a medium heat kick. Prime for dipping, dolloping and adding as an ingredient for any lunch/dinner meal or snack, this will quickly become a grocery-list staple that delights tastebuds and leaves people craving more.

WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE Extra Chunky Restaurant Style comes in 7.5-ounce and 15-ounce bowls, and minis, with 4- and 6-pack collections of 2-ounce portions. Products are available at your local grocery retailer, including Kroger, Meijer, Food Lion and more.
