I love watching movies. What’s even better than watching movies is watching movies with friends and family. As Tinseltown and movie-fans prepare for a star-studded Oscars night, we’re preparing our own “red carpet” event where we’re going to have some good snacks, good drinks, and good company. To help make a recent night an awesome movie night, I stocked up on chips, Wholly Guacamole and Wholly Salsa, and Daily’s Cocktails.
One of the things that impressed me the most about Wholly Guacamole and Wholly Salsa was how fresh everything tasted. I would never have guessed that these weren’t home made. The flavors were vibrant and zesty, without being TOO much (although I suspect the spicy guacamole would more than satisfy those who like heat.)
I’m not even the hugest guacamole fan but found myself going back for seconds and thirds with the Homestyle Wholly Guacamole. You can actually see chunks of avocado, onions, and the other ingredients. Tip: the thin tortilla chips won’t stand up to the thick guacamole. Use thicker tortilla chips so you can get a big scoop.
The Wholly Salsa Red Pepper and Mango salsa completely surprised me. It has a subtle sweet and spicy that totally works together. I quickly became addicted to this unique salsa flavor. Again, I loved the chunks of ingredients – mangoes, tomatoes, etc. that you could see in the salsa. All of the salsas looked fresh and won fans.
Of course, once you start having all of these bold and tasty snacks, you need to wash it down with a good drink. We first discovered Daily’s Cocktails last year and have been buying them ever since I found them at our local Walmart. Daily’s Cocktails are frozen, alcoholic drinks that come pre-packaged and pre-mixed. All you have to do is freeze, partially thaw, and enjoy. You can even drink them straight from the pouch. I haven’t tried all of their flavors yet, but Frozen Lemonade, Peach Daiquiri, and Margarita are big hits here.
After we had our red carpet ready snacks, it was time to settle in for a great movie. Sometimes movie selection is hard, but we opted to watch the night’s showing of Schindler’s List. Directed by Steven Spielberg, Schindler’s List tells the story of Oskar Schnidler, a man who at first was simply trying to make a lot of money during World War II, but ended becoming a hero to the over 1,000 Polish-Jewish survivors whom he saved by employing them in his factory. This truly is a touching movie that provided a glimpse into the many sufferings, and the few victories, of that difficult time. Schindler’s List deservedly (in my opinion) won 7 Oscars in 1994.
