It's time for a party. Actually, it's time for a fiesta! We're excited to be celebrating Cinco de Mayo with our friends at Avocados From Mexico! With 250 million avocados enjoyed in Canada in 2015, Canadians have access to fresh avocados from Mexico throughout the year.  That makes for a lot of guacamole and all sorts of other great avocado-inspired meals, snacks and drinks! With Cinco de Mayo on Thursday, May 5th, we'll get the week started off right with a #GuacIt Twitter Party! You'll be equipped with terrific avocado recipes while sharing why avocados are such a versatile and healthy fruit!

Read below to see the prizes up for grabs and don't forget to scroll all the way down to RSVP for the party so you're entered for a chance to win a prize!

I’ve been eating avocados every day for a month! Love them in salads or on their own with a little lemon juice and salt.


Avocados are a staple at my place. Can’t wait to discover delicious recipes from everyone here. 🙂

I’m already hungry for avocados, just thinking about the party!

My son and I love avocados! We put them on everything – salads, sandwiches, crackers & eat them straight-up for snacks! Have been eating them for as long as I can remember. We also grow the avocado pits for fun.

premature hit of the enter button.

132 and 133 are both me, however I hit enter too early and only got @Patrick in 132 instead of @PatrickMB84 (like 133)


Added wrong link to first RSVP (darn cut & paste) and tried to remove to no avail. Got it figured for second RSVP lol. Looking forward to tonight!

Looking for a great guacamole recipe and some new ideas to add avocados into my diet. Can’t wait !
