Football season is in full swing with the Big Game coming up in only a few weeks!
This is the perfect occasion to indulge in a multitude of culinary classics specific to family and friends’ Big Game watch party.
Nachos, hot dips, and pizzas will be in the spotlight, despite the healthy New Year’s resolutions.
However, that’s when Avocados From Mexico come in, to add some good fats to your game night!
A classic that never goes out of style during the game: guacamole!
The annual event is a key moment in the export of fruit to Canada.
In 2023, Avocados From Mexico observed a significant increase in avocado consumption in the weeks leading up to the Big Game.
In the first 3 weeks of January, over 4,000 tons of avocados arrived in Canadian grocery stores.
This equates to more than 20 million whole fresh avocados…that’s a lot of guac!
Avocados are literally the only fruit containing monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, otherwise known as “good fats”.
With more than 75% of “good fat”, an excellent source of fiber, and a variety of vitamins and minerals, there is no doubt that the avocado ranks among the fruits with sensational nutritional powers.
A few of its superpowers allow maintaining a balanced cholesterol level, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, and enhancing the nutrient absorption of other foods.
The reasons to include this tasty green gem in your diet are endless!
In addition to its health benefits, its great versatility and creamy texture allow it to express itself in salty and sweet forms through countless recipes and act as an ideal substitute for mayonnaise or butter in sandwiches, wraps, desserts, and pastries recipes such as a chocolate pie or cupcakes.
During the Big Game, treat yourself and your guests to healthy yet tasty snacks like avocado stuffed jalapeño poppers, avocado artichoke spinach dip or guacamole deviled egg.

“Wow Bowl” I replied
To help Canadians from Ontario and Quebec get ready for the Big Game night, Avocados From Mexico launched its famous “Guac Bowl” contest for a second year in a row.
In 2023, players will have to replicate three new guacamole recipes: black beans and tomatoes, pomegranate and fresh mint or the ultimate 7-layer guac.
To get the most points, after choosing one of the three recipes, players will have to collect all the ingredients in a bowl, while avoiding traps.
Draws will be held weekly until February 1st with a chance to win some amazing prizes such as 43″ LED smart TVs, a Ninja professional blender, a colorful Kitchenaid stand mixer, or generous grocery gift cards.
A great way to start the new year and get ready for the Big Game! Answer details HERE.
