FORT WORTH, TEXAS — Wholly Guacamole, a brand of Fresherized Foods, has introduced 100-Calorie Guacamole Snack Packs.
The 2-ounce, individually portioned packs of guacamole stay fresh for up to 30 days and are made with 94% avocados with no chemicals or preservatives.
"Our testing revealed that consumers couldn’t believe how big a 100-calorie serving was of fresh guacamole," said Jay Alley, vice-president of sales for Wholly Guacamole. "Consumers also loved the healthy functionality of guacamole — as a sandwich condiment, on chicken and with carrot dippers vs. chips."
The snack packs have a suggested retail price of $2.19 to $2.49 for a 3-pack or $4.29 to $4.69 for a 6-pack and are available in grocery produce or deli sections nationwide.
