What’s The Best Store-Bought Guacamole?

It’s not hard to make your own guacamole at home, but that doesn’t mean that you always want to. Sometimes opening a container instead of actual cooking is where it’s at. How do you choose the best pre-made guac on the shelf, though? Buy every brand available and taste-test it? Don’t worry: our freshly mashed colleagues down the hall at Consumer Reports already took care of that for you.

Out of all of the store-bought guacamoles available, Consumer Reports liked the offering from Sabra best. They rank all of the varieties they tried in the ratings for subscribers, but found something wrong with all other brands. Too much bitterness here, an “off” texture there: none of the guacs were just right except for Sabra’s offering.
