OMGuac Your Lunch with Wholly Guacamole Minis: Perfect for Back to School! (Review & Giveaway)

With back-to-school less than a week away, the thought of school lunches is on the minds of many moms.  Wanting to make sure that my children have healthy, fun lunches is always a top priority. 

Wholly Guacamole is moving out of the bag and into the tray, saying goodbye to the bag and hello to new easy peel trays!  I love that these new fun, 100 calorie, portable cups are perfect for packing in my children's lunch boxes. 

Here are some of the main benefits of the new 100 calorie Wholly Guacamole Minis:

- Peel and serve means no more dirty bowls
- Same great Wholly Guacamole® dip you know and love
- Easy to reach corners (‘cuz that’s the best part!)
- 100 cal servings perfect for snacking, on the go, lunchboxes and for individual use
- All Natural, No Preservatives, Gluten Free and Kosher Certified
- Flavors include: Classic, Spicy, Avocado Ranch and 100% Hass Avocado

Wholly Guacamole Minis come in 4 delicious varieties:

- Wholly Guacamole Classic 100 Cal Minis: Dippable, Squeezable Goodness!
This is our classic guacamole in fun, 100 calorie, portable cups. This is an easy guacamole to love. It's simple guacamole goodness in the convenience of a travel cup.

Try a mini snack with a big kick. If you like spicy guacamole as much as we do, this is the best guacamole for you.

- Wholly Guacamole Avocado Ranch 100 Cal Minis: Yee-Haw, Avocado Ranch!
We took creamy avocado and added the spices of ranch that you love, and created the Wholly Guacamole Avocado Ranch Minis. These little cups are perfect for an afternoon snack or as a spread on your turkey sandwich. Your baby carrots will never be the same again.

Wholly Guacamole has made guacamole even easier to love. It's simple guacamole goodness in the convenience of a travel cup. Perfect for snacking, veggies, sandwiches, and more...what could be better?

We have used Wholly Guacamole minis on numerous occasions and they have always been the perfect addition to our busy lives.  We have taken them in our cooler while boating, to wrestling camp in our lunch boxes, camping for a mid-afternoon snack, as well as using them at home for a snack or as part of our meal.  We love guacamole on tortilla chips, baked potatoes, sandwiches, tacos, quesadillas and so much more... 

I know that my kids are going to love having these sent in the school lunches, and I'm sure that their friends are going to be a little bit jealous!
