PRODUCT REVIEW: Deans Guacamole Dip versus Jamie Deen's Real recipe for Guacamole Dip

When you are shopping did  you ever buy a product you don't like and 
in that senior moment buy it!  This is it!!  Bought this 20 some years ago and hated it then.  Tried it twice because I thought maybe I got a bad batch.  

I have
  • eaten in many Mexican restaurants
  • made my own avocado or guacamole dip from scratch
  • have tried the package mixes found at grocery store that you add mashed avocados to
  • have tried Wholly Guacamole in big packages 
  • and love the mini packages that you can freeze and use as you need!1
This product is disgusting!! Opened it today (again I had a senior moment when I bought it) and ate a little and threw away.
  • Consistency good
  • Moisture content good
  • After taste AWFUL
  • ALMOST TASTES RANCID but this is the exact taste I remember from 20 years ago
  • I am a food blogger, love food, prepare food and can remember tastes from years ago.
Avocado dip or guacamole dip 

Don't believe me!  If you already use it buy another one and compare!!
