Surprise! Good pre-made store bought Guacamole

I was having a gathering on the fly and went to the local Supermarket for a few snacks to serve with drinks. I grabbed some tortilla chips and remembered that there was some guacamole available in the chilled area near the dairy. It is pre-packaged, so I have never paid much attention to it since I like to make my own Guac and I imagined pre-packaged would be brown with age or full of preservatives. One of the 2 options available was just that - full of chemicals. But the other one, Guacamole by a company named Santa Barbara, impressed me with the ingredients list. It reads as follows: Hass Avocados, tomato, onion, assorted peppers, salt, cilantro and garlic. Wow - no chemicals! The trick is that they vacuum seal the guac in a plastic pack inside the plastic container you see on the shelf. The guac is delicious. I have tried the "spicy" and another type, and they have the right texture - no soupy guac here! The spicy is not hot, but fresh tasting and you can add heat with hot sauce or better yet salsa if you want to. I recommend you check this out if you like Guac and have not seen! I would be curious to hear what other Chowhounders think.
