ORANGE, Calif., June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The makers of the WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® brand today announced that the nation's first-ever guacamole-themed lounge, officially known as The Guac Stop, will be coming to the Windy City June 14-18 at Navy Pier. With 79 percent of U.S. households purchasing guacamole according to MegaMex Internal Research, The Guac Stop will make avo-loving dreams come true, spreading guacamole love as well as the WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® brand's Live Wholly mentality to Chicagoland residents.
"The Guac Stop is designed to give guacamole lovers, brand fans and anyone looking for fun an opportunity to sample WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® foods as well as experience what it means to Live Wholly," said Terrill W. Bacon, senior brand manager of MegaMex Foods. "Sometimes we all need to slow down and appreciate life's special moments, and enjoying guacamole and chips with friends is a great way to do it!"
To showcase the versatility of WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® foods, The Guac Stop will feature a customizable guacamole bar, including all the fixings to create a limited-edition "Chicago dog"-style guacamole featuring pickles, tomatoes, onions, peppers and celery salt. Visitors will also have the chance to sample a variety of WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® offerings, including newer product innovations, like Layered Dips, and enjoy a hands-on experience that celebrates real food made with simple ingredients.
While guacamole is the main attraction, it's certainly not the only thing on the menu. In addition to customizing personal guac creations, people will be invited to participate in a series of ongoing "happenings" ranging from WERQ fitness classes—an addictive cardio dance class; avocado facial treatments by Spa in Your Space; avocado-themed painting sessions with Bottle & Bottega; guacamole trivia led by Geeks Who Drink; live music from Mack Sterr & Mark Dennison; giveaways and more. These daily "happenings" will spotlight five key WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® brand values of Well Being, Connections, Real Food, Personal Style and Feeling Good.
All events (including the guacamole tastings) are free and open to the public, but space is limited, according to Bacon.
"And no, guacamole doesn't cost extra at The Guac Stop," he adds. "We just want to share the goodness."
