MORRIS COUNTY — Nearly a dozen registered dietitians from ShopRite supermarkets were in attendance as “avocado ambassadors” during the New York Jets home opener on Sunday, September 8 at MetLife Stadium. Prior to the game, which resulted in a New York Jets loss to the Buffalo Bills 16-17, the dietitians were on hand for the unveiling of what was touted as the “world’s largest guacamole bowl,” held in partnership with Avocados from Peru. ShopRite supplied the avocados in a specially designed refrigerated trailer that transported approximately 9,000 lbs. of avocados to MetLife Stadium for the event.
“A great tailgate party isn’t complete without a bowl of delicious, fresh guacamole,” said Natalie Menza-Crowe, Director of Health and Wellness at ShopRite. “We’re excited to share the healthy benefits of avocados with our customers, and why they are a great choice as a snack or dip for your game day celebrations, or any time.” For more information click here.
