Hi Everyone! I am a little behind in getting this posted as the The 85th Academy Awards was on February 24th, but as you all have known, I have been pretty sick lately and I am in and out of the doctor's office and running tests and next week will be in the hospital for a day doing tests. But, we did get a few friends over and I let them drink all the wonderful Daily's Cocktails because of the meds I was on and plus I just did not think I would be able to drink them anyhow.
I had received an awesome WalMart Gift Card to go and purchase which flavors I thought everyone would like and that happened to be Pina Colada's, Margarita's and Peach Daiquiri's. I did take a few spoonfuls of the Pina Colada and WOW, it was really good. But, because my tummy was still a bit queasy, I let hubby finish it for me.
We got 2 awesome Daily's glasses to use for our drinks and not sure if this picture will do it justice but they do have the Daily's name on them if you can't see it.
I guess I never paid any attention when I was shopping in the past that they actually have these mixes and they are already made up so you don't have to do a darn thing except freeze them a little or alot, depending on how you like to drink them. Oh, by the way, they have 13 flavors of drinks to choose from so I don't think you will have a problem finding one that you like!
So, I was amazed at all of my choices and I played it safe while picking them out but the only one I should have gotten at least one of was the Strawberry Daquiri. I had one friend who loves those but I really did not think she would show (she's always so busy). Just goes to show, always be prepared!
The Peach Daquiri's were actually the hit of the night. I should have loaded up on them instead of the Pina Colada's but I love them and thought, maybe not tonight, but one night in the future, I would love to have one, so yeah, I was a little selfish and got what I wanted. But, at least now I know for future events, I need to load up on the Peach flavored drinks more than any other flavor!
At least, hubby was pretty happy because his thing if it is not a beer, it is Margarita's! So, I thought of him before I thought of anyone else, including myself and he normally doesn't get to participate in many of the girl events, so I decided this time he would sorta be the guest of honor and could have whatever he wanted, hence the Margarita's! He said that they were awesome and we needed to remember in the future to get some more Daily's to have in the freezer for a just in case something popped up last minute. He didn't fool me, he meant, when he was in the mood for one!
Now, for the goodies that we got to eat, it was alot of Wholly Guacomole sauces and dips and then I picked up some chips here and there that I thought might interest everyone. We already had some tortilla chips so I just put those in a bowl and then left the different bags out for everyone to decide what they wanted with what dip or sauce.
I even got a little roll of red paper to make it like a red carpet walk and they sent the chip holder and a few of the squeezes guacamole's for anyone who wanted to take one home. They remind me of those things you have to squeeze when they are getting ready to take blood or put an IV in, so, I was very happy to give them all away!
This one (Red Pepper Mango) ended up being every one's favorite and I tried a small bite but it was way too hot for me and with my recent stomach problems, I stuck with just the plain guacamole that had no spices. Last thing I needed was more trouble. The other one (Guacamole & Spicy Pico) that everyone liked was this mixture:
But, whatever your preference, there was more than enough to go around and Wholly Guacamole and Daily's Cocktail's made the Red Carpet Experience a really nice night with friends whom we don't get to see much of, but they do call often to check on me. They specifically asked me not to take their pictures and are not the celebrity like friends who want their pictures spread all over the Internet, so I respected their wishes and kept to the products, which were the main event anyway!
We had 3 other dips that were in the boxes and we actually did not get to them that night because everyone was stuffed on the 3 bowls we opened but I sent one home with one of my friends because I knew we would not be able to eat it because it was really hot and spicy. It was this one below and she has teenage sons and she called me the next day and said they demolished it within 30 minutes!
These other two I sent with Mike to work the next day so that the guys could have a snack after lunch and Mike said that they were both gone in no time, so as you can see, everyone loves Wholly Guacamole, no matter what the flavor. The guys ate this Classic pretty fast according to Mike.
And then they started on the Homestyle. I did open up one of the packs on this one hoping it wouldn't be too hot for me, but it still had a little kick, not much, and if I hadn't had my queasy stomach at the time, I probably would have loved this one and kept it. But because their products are so fresh, you really have to eat them within a short time frame, so I didn't want it to spoil waiting for me to get better, so I sent it with Mike so that I knew it would be appreciated and not wasted.
I just wish I could have joined in the fun, but it's okay, I am used to it by now and just had fun having everyone over and getting to visit was really my highlight of the night! But thanks to Daily's Cocktails and Wholly Guacamole, I got to feed people 3 times, once at my house, once at my friend's with her teenage boys and then with Mike's co-workers.
So, I made good use of them all! And I even sent the Avocado's home with one of my friend's who works in a doctor's office and they will get good use out of the Squeezies when they draw blood! (I did keep the chip clip, can't ever have too many of those!)
The awesome folks at both Daily's Cocktails and Wholly Guacamole would love to offer the same package I just reviewed to one winner minus the red carpet but you will get the Wholly Guacamole products in the mail and the $20 WalMart Gift Card I used to buy the Daily's Cocktails. You will enjoy them all! Open to the U.S. only. Good Luck Everyone!
