I was recently contacted by Holy Moly, makers of a new range of Guacamole dips to do a review, and being on a reduced sugar diet lately these certainly fit the bill. They are all made with natural ingredients, vegan, dairy free, gluten free and sugar free. They're made using avocados grown on a family-owned avocado orchard in Mexico; the avocados are hand-picked, hand-scooped and combined with freshly sourced local ingredients.
The Saintly Original variety contains a mixture of garlic, jalapeno chilli, onion, avocado and spices.
I dug right in and ate it straight from the spoon. It's super creamy, with a lovely kick from the chillis, perfectly balanced with the onion and garlic. I really enjoyed it, but I do wish I'd had some gluten free crackers to dip in it. Very tasty. 8.5 out of 10.
Containing Jalapeno chilli, red onion, red bell pepper and other spices, this was the fiery one of the bunch.
And I loved it! The jalapeno gives it that unmistakable fiery salty kick, with the bell pepper complimenting it. This is a very tasty dip, perfect with anything from tortillas, chips or even in a sandwich. 9 out of 10.
The Pure variety is made from perfectly ripe mashed hass avocado. Obviously plainer than the other flavours, but still nice if you want ready made avocado to add to your dishes.
It tasted nice and fresh, with a chunkier texture than the other dips. This could be used in sandwiches, or even sweet dessert recipes requiring avocado. 8 out of 10.
Overall, I have to say these are some great Guacomole dips from Holy Moly, certainly the best I've tried. The lack of sugar and using only fresh ingredients is what really sets them apart, I'll certainly be keeping my eye out for them in the shops!
