Chip-Crusted Guacamole Bites

Salud's 'Guacabites' Offers a New Way to Enjoy Chips and Dip

— November 3, 2018 — Lifestyle
Guacamole and chips go hand-in-hand with one another but for snacking, they are often served in separate bowls—Salud's guacamole bites put a new spin on this pairing by encasing avocado puree in a tortilla chip crumb coating. While the inside of the 'Guacabite' is made up of a combination of cream cheese, guacamole, herbs and spices, the outer layer provides a contrast with its crunchy texture. At SIAL 2018, a large food innovation exhibition, Salud's Guacabite was recognized with an award in innovation.

For the sake of easy entertaining and mess-free on-the-go snacking, many snack food brands are launching handheld bites that offer a new way to consume favorite foods, especially with a focus on providing a texture-rich eating experience.
