FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wholly Guacamole® brand, America's number one selling pre-made guacamole brand, is ready to help fans tackle the ultimate HOMEGATING® party of the year on February 2nd.
According to Wholly Guacamole, the company will use roughly 11 million pounds of avocados in January to satisfy fans prepping for the Big Game – that's 30 percent more than the 8 million pounds of avocados used in Wholly Guacamole products in December 2013. In fact, so many avocados are used during the month of January that the avocados lined end-to-end would stretch from Ft. Worth, Texas to the Metlife® Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey and back.
In addition to Wholly Guacamole, customers can now add the new assortment of bean dips to their list of HOMEGATING foods for the first time. Released late last year, Taco Bean Dip & Guacamole, Black Bean Dip & Homestyle Guacamole, and Avocado, Black Bean & Roasted Corn Dip are all perfect additions for any HOMEGATING spread.
"HOMEGATING is our answer to tailgating at home," said Vice President of Marketing for Fresherized Foods, Tracey Altman. "It's about football, but it's also about spending time with friends and family, and having fun. During this time of year, we want to help our fans by making it easy and fun to celebrate the end of the football season."
