Quac snobs may put up their noses in disgust at the very sight of store-bought guacamole, but there are plenty of brands out there that taste as good as (if not better) than the recipe you make at home. As one of the few snacks that’s easy to make but hard to perfect, everyone loves a good guacamole. Spicy, tangy, zesty or chunky, however you make it, it’s always delicious. And while the stigma of pre-packaged foods has existed for years — for good reason — you might be surprised to know how far store-bought guacamole has come.
The best store-bought guac is savory and flavorful. Made with delicious ripe avocados and hand-picked GMO-free ingredients, this avocado-based dip is the ultimate snack food. We’ve rounded up our six favorite guacamole brands you can buy online. Sure, you can buy most of these packaged brands are your local grocery store, but why not save yourself the effort and buy them online instead?
1. Hope Organic Green Chile Guacamole
Made with hand-picked avocados and lime juice, tomato, garlic and cilantro, this green chile recipe is easily one of the most delicious store-bought guacamoles you can order online. Like every other option on our list, this one is non-GMO, kosher and gluten-free. It’s also one of the most universally loved. This guac features a perfect blend of spices, and once you pop off the lid you won’t want to stop snacking until it’s gone.
2. Wholly Guacamole, Classic Guacamole Minis, 4 Pack
Holy delicious guacamole in a box, Batman! Wholly Guacamole’s at the top of many a food reviewer’s top 10 lists for good reason: it’s 100% gluten-free, features no preservatives and each package is made with hand-scooped Hass avocados. Each of these packs comes with four mini cups so you can pack them in your lunch and spread that deliciousness out over a few days. Unlike other guacs, this one’s not the least bit spicy. In fact, it’s probably our new favorite guac — store-bought or homemade. The individual serving size might not be great for dipping at your next playoff party, but it is perfect for meals on-the-go and homemade avocado toast.
3. Whole Foods Market, Traditional Guacamole
Whole Foods is known for its delicious market-brand foods, and this traditional guac is no different. Made with hearty ingredients, it’s extremely smooth and always fresh. Unlike other chunky guacs, where tomatoes and other spices are already added, this one’s all about the avocados. And while this packaged guac may not be the most flavorful, you can add your own flavors and spices to help it taste just right.
4. Sabra, Spicy Guacamole
BEST SPICY GUAC
Looking to add a little spice to your life? This Sabra brand guacamole packs a pretty hearty punch. Made with spicy jalapenos and always-ripe Hass avocados, it features a more chunky texture that’s perfect for dipping. And while there are definitely spicier guacs on the market, we like this one because it flawlessly toes the line between being spicy and flavorful. The fact that it’s non-GMO, gluten-free and 100% kosher also doesn’t hurt.
5. Ortega Seasoning Mix
BEST QUACAMOLE MIX
When you have a few ripe avocados but literally nothing else, this seasoning mix is a must. Packed with a perfectly crafted mix of herbs and spices, it’s great for tacos, nachos, chips or those little cucumber sticks. Each packet has enough seasoning for 15 different servings (we counted less — but we’re a bit greedy) and is sure to help take your guac to the next level. With each pack featuring 12 individual packets, this seasoning mix is sure to last a while.
6. FRONTERA Guacamole Mix
Tangy, sweet, ripe and smooth, this Frontera guacamole mix is delish. Featuring just 1g of net carbs, it’s perfect for all you Keto followers. It also features a slightly spicy flavor that’s welcome but not at all overpowering. Made with tomatoes, green chiles, onions, cilantro and garlic, you simply sprinkle a spoonful on your guac to add some much-needed flavor. Warning: avocados not included.
