Planning appetizers for Christmas or New Year’s Eve for your household to enjoy? Maybe you’re like me and absolutely love guacamole. I didn’t think I could ever say no to guacamole until I tried this Costco Big Taste Fresh Black Bean Guacamole.

Cost

I paid $9.99 Canadian for the 725 gram container of guacamole, which isn’t exactly cheap.

Convenience

This had a best before date of about five days from the date we purchased the guacamole. I thought this would be perfect to put on salads, have with tortilla chips and use with taquitos. This needs to be kept refrigerated and can be found in the refrigerated section by the other dips.

Big Taste Fresh Black Bean Guacamole Nutrition

Nutrition

Two tablespoons of guacamole is 40 calories, three grams of fat, three grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, zero grams of sugar, one gram of protein and 60 mg of sodium.  The ingredients list is short and sweet which I appreciate. Avocados are an amazing source of healthy fats!

Taste

I loved how green and fresh-looking this black bean guacamole is and also really appreciated the little chunks of avocado that were mixed in. What I didn’t love was how much acidity and lime juice this had in it. The flavor of the fresh avocado and black beans was completely overpowered by a sour, acidic flavor coming from the lime juice used to keep this fresh. Had it not been for the tongue-tingling sourness I would probably really enjoy this guacamole. If you’re someone who likes a lot of lime in your guac you’d probably like this but if you love the creamy, buttery flavor of guacamole you won’t find it here.

I won’t be buying this again and will stick to my favorite wholly guacamole that I purchase from Costco.
