National Guacamole Day 2021: Where To Get The Best Food Freebies And Deals

From being served with chips to topping a taco, National Guacamole Day 2021 is a reason to embrace a little extra on all types of food deals. From fast food restaurants to food subscription boxes, that favorite avocado-based dish is never the pits.

According to National Day Calendar, National Guacamole Day is celebrated on September 16. Although the exact origin of this food holiday is unclear, the website states that guacamole originated from the Aztecs. Even though everyone has a preferred way of making this dip, it traditionally uses a mortar and pestle to combine the ingredients. From chunky to smooth and from spicy to veggie-forward, there are a myriad of ways to enjoy a bowl.

For National Guacamole Day 2021, many restaurants and brands are looking to make the avocado dip included, not extra. Even Wholly Guacamole launched a Don't Hit Guac Bottom subscription box for the food holiday. The six-month box comes with plenty of Wholly Guacamole products to satisfy each and every guacamole craving for the holiday and beyond.
