Not long ago, I wrote about guacamole dip at Aldi. The discount grocer sells several kinds — Classic, Chunky, and Spicy — in a mixed case in their refrigerated aisle. While I prefer homemade guacamole made with fresh avocados, some cumin, salt, lime juice, and fresh garlic, sometimes I don’t have time to let avocados ripen on my counter. When I want guacamole right away, I’m not above buying a ready-made container at the grocery store.
Aldi sells some decent guacamole. I like the Spicy variety best. It’s not that spicy, and that little bit of kick adds flavor and interest to the dip. The Classic and Chunky guac at Aldi fine, too.
I usually buy Aldi guacamole in plastic 15-ounce containers, but I noticed Aldi also sells the same guacamole recipes in small single-serving cups. Aldi sells these guacamole singles in six-packs featuring individual servings, so you don’t have to open more guacamole than you need.
This is actually a good idea because, if you eat a lot of guacamole, you know that it turns brown quickly. It’s generally best to eat it right away, or at least the same day that you prepare it. With these singles cups, you can have a ready supply of guacamole without worrying about it all turning brown before you can eat it. These cups are great not only for enjoying at home but also on the go. My teen likes to pack them in her lunch bag with some tortilla chips.
Park Street Deli Guacamole Singles cost $3.29 at the time of publication for a 12-ounce package containing six individual 2-ounce serving cups. That comes out to about 27 cents per ounce, or about 55 cents per serving.
Ironically, these little cups are a better price per ounce than the larger 15-ounce guacamole containers Aldi sells, which came in at about 30 cents per ounce when we wrote about them a few months ago. I had expected the tubs to be the better deal, but they are not. So while the singles probably use more packaging compared to the larger tubs, you can at least feel good knowing you’re not paying a premium price tag for the singles.
These are a Regular Buy, so you should be able to find them at Aldi any time of year. You’ll find these in the refrigerated case, and they are perishable and should be kept refrigerated. They are a product of Mexico and are kosher.
These come in two varieties: Classic and Spicy. If you want the Chunky guacamole variety at Aldi, you can only get it in the 15-ounce tub.
These look like the exact same formulas that are in the larger Aldi guacamole containers.
Ingredients for the Classic variety include Hass avocado, white vinegar, jalapeno pepper, sea salt, water, chopped onion (dehydrated), and granulated garlic.
Ingredients for the Spicy variety include Hass avocado, red bell pepper, vinegar, water, jalapeno pepper, sea salt, dehydrated onion, granulated garlic, jalapeno powder, and spice.
The Classic guacamole has 90 calories per 2-ounce cup, along with 8 grams of total fat (10% DV), 1 gram of saturated fat (5% DV), 210 mg of sodium (9% DV), and 5 grams of total carbohydrates (2% DV).
The Spicy guacamole has 80 calories per 2-ounce cup, along with 7 grams of total fat (9% DV), 1 gram of saturated fat (5% DV), 220 mg of sodium (10% DV), and 5 grams of total carbohydrates (2% DV).
As I observed in my full review of the guacamole tubs at Aldi, these are good for store-bought guacamole, and they taste similar to other guacamole brands I’ve bought at grocery stores. The Classic dip is smooth and zesty, while the Spicy dip is mild and has just the right amount of spice to it. I also appreciate that these don’t contain any preservatives.
Park Street Deli Guacamole Singles are identical to the guacamole Aldi sells in larger containers, and these singles come in Classic or Spicy varieties. Both varieties are fine, but we like the Spicy one, which is not that spicy. These are surprisingly cheaper per ounce than the guacamole tubs Aldi sells, and they come with several advantages. First, they are portable and easy to pack in lunch bags or for a snack on the go. Second, because they are packaged in individual servings, you don’t have to worry about your opened container of guacamole turning brown before you can finish it all. Don’t forget to pick up some tortilla chips.
