A Cinco de Mayo party is a fun way to celebrate the foods your family loves. Cinco de Mayo, the fifth of May, celebrates Mexico's victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862 during the Franco-Mexican War.
According to History.com, Cinco de Mayo isn't a major celebration in Mexico but the day is widely celebrated in the United States, especially in locations with large Mexican-American populations.
Many families celebrate the day with parades, parties, festivities and Mexican foods. Nearly all Mexican restaurants in the U.S. offer Cinco de Mayo specials.
The makers of Wholly Guacamole products estimate approximately 9.4 million avocados will be used to make enough guacamole to satisfy Wholly fan cravings in May.
Avocado fans would have to cumulatively eat approximately 12,635 each hour, 210 avocados per minute, to consume that many avocados. The Wholly Guacamole brand annual survey shows 87 percent of consumers like eating guacamole with chips and 68 percent of consumers like eating guacamole with Mexican food.
This year, the makers of the Wholly Guacamole brand ask fans to share their Cinco de Mayo celebrations via Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using #WhollydeMayo for a chance to win a series of tasty prize packages. Starting at 5 p.m. CST on May 5, all who post with the hashtag #WhollyDeMayo will be entered to win a series of product prizes.
Enjoy these fun Cinco de Mayo recipes and jump into the month of May making fun family memories.
