We tried 5 brands of guacamole —and there was a clear winner


  • We tried five brands of guacamole commonly found at the grocery store.
  • The brands we tried were: Sabra, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Calavo, and Yucatan.
  • Whole Foods was the clear winner thanks to its fresh taste, chunky texture, and bold seasoning.

 Any snack lover would argue that a tortilla chip isn't complete without guacamole.

In the interest of finding the gauc most worthy of your chips, four of my co-workers and I sampled five different brands commonly found at the grocery store. The guacamole brands we tried included:

  • Sabra
  • Whole Foods
  • Trader Joe's
  • Calavo
  • Yucatan

We've done plenty of other taste tests like this one as part of an ongoing INSIDER series. In the past, we've sampled everything from microwave popcorn to cheap wine to mashed potatoes.

We bought all five guacamole brands at grocery stores in New York City, spending anywhere from $3.99 to $6.43.

We paired the guac with multi grain tortilla chips and decided to try it blind in an effort to remain unbiased by brand loyalty.

We dug right in and immediately had thoughts about a few of the brands.
