Before I bought the new jar (4/13) I would have given this 5 stars and top expectation marks; however, Mission has apparently changed their formula and the new product tastes, looks, feels, smells nothing like the original recipe.
I LOVE this stuff so much that I buy as many jars as I can because we go through it so fast. I used it on sandwiches, tortillas for tacos, enchilada's, etc. and on many other dishes. Last night when my dear husband brought this home, I literally flew out of the room to get my "fair share" (lol) and scarf it down. When I saw the "new formula" I was hesitant because it just didn't look right. I was not mistaken.
If you like baby food consistency, sour flavor with no hint of guacamole then this product is for you. If you want fresh flavor, thicker dip-like consistency, guacamole taste and smell, then look for the older jars. (When comparing the jars, the new recipe will show chunkier veggies on the bottom of the jar where they have settled - the older will be super thick with no large veggies on the bottom and will be more of a guacamole color rather than a pea soup green color).
** I have written Mission foods and will see what they have to say about this but I will NOT be buying more in the future unless I can find the original formula.
I used to love this stuff, but hadn't seen it in some time. After going a few months without seeing Mission dip on the shelf anywhere, I finally found the guacamole dip again. Something seemed off as the color was a much more pale green than I have previously experienced. Upon opening a jar, I found that there was a fine, white powder on top. It tasted terrible. A second jar was exactly the same, so both were returned and I made sure that my next purchase was from a different lot. It was exactly the same. The taste, color, smell and texture have been completely changed. I will not be buying this again.
We picked this up last night to try out and I must say it taste better than I expected. It is to die for! I have been eating it so much I am going to need more before the end of the week. Will definitely buy it again.
Usually love this product. Ordered it for home delivery because it is hard for me to get out to shop.Unfortunately, the person who packed this for shipping had no idea of what they were doing. One of two bottles arrived broken. This is no value if it cannot be used once it arrives. To get a refund, I must take it to the nearest store for processing. If I could easily get out, I would have gone to the store to buy this. Returning via mail results in the same problem. This is the second time that I have received destroyed product due to poor shipping practices.. Will not be using home delivery again.
never again. some reviewers say it used to be good--- but this was as bad as the Ortega ''guac style'' dip. it's back to making my own from fresh avocados and leaving this chemical nightmare compound to others. ------- read the ingredient list = chemistry class.
