    Default Guacamole cups

    I love the single serve Guacamole cups at Aldi, any idea how long they'd keep unrefridgerated? (Mild temps low 70-mid 40s)

    I carried them frequently on my thru! Tried to use them within 48 hours. That number wasn't based on evidence of any kind, so maybe they last quite a bit longer. But from my anecdotal experience, they will definitely keep for at least two days without killing you, if that's any reassurance! :P

    Are they really tasty? I love guacamole but store-bought tastes terrible. Might have to give it a try.

    I use dried avo or guac powder as a shmear or placed over rice and beans on trail along with reconstituted hummus or garbonzo bean powder.

    @Traffic Jam, I don't like them as much as what I make at home, but I still like them. The brand walmart carries has 3 varieties: spicy, mild, and then one that's basically just an avocado puree. Putting it in a tortilla with a tuna salad packet (or especially that "Starkist Creations" one that has rice and beans) and some cheese really makes a trail lunch feel less like a trail lunch. Whenever possible, I would bring fresher stuff for the first 2 days out of a resupply. Having bagged salad, guacamole, and cheese as part of my first few trail meals really helped me tolerate the dehydrated stuff for the last 2-3 days into town.

    My wife and I are 100% GuacOholics, it's a serious addiction.... and the stuff we make from scratch is pretty darned tasty. BUT, we did try that AlpineAir freeze dried stuff, pretty darned good for freeze dried. We now often carry this stuff on our BP trips.

    We, too, really like those Aldi cups, again, not quote as good as home made, but not bad. Not sure how long they would last, I agree, 2 days max and only then in reasonably cool weather (70F or less).
