I don’t mean to brag, but I can eat a pound of guacamole, easily, in one sitting. I don’t do it every single day, but after a few margs at happy hour, there are few things that taste more right than a mouthful of avocado and spices. But every time I go to Chipotle (four times a week, give or take, potential listeria be damned) I fight the internal battle raging within me between my need for guac and my need to pay rent. Chipotle released their guac recipe so I guess technically I can make it at home, but it’s not the same. Those crispy chips just don’t live up to their full potential when they aren’t paired with a mouthful of guacamole magic. I know you know how real that struggle is.
Well, all guac-lovers can rejoice because for now that struggle can be put on hold. Chipotle’s newest freebie is a game called GuacHunter, where you can literally play to win free chips and guacamole. I. Know. Right. There are few things I wouldn’t do for free guac (no shame), but this is a great, and relatively easy, option that doesn’t involve things like, I don’t know, bartering sexual favors for food. Don’t judge me for what happens when I’m hangry.
All you have to do is find the five differences between three consecutive photosets in the game, and the guac is yours. Like the free burrito bonanza, it’s clearly an attempt at assuring people that Chipotle’s food is safe and ready to be consumed again. Personally, I don’t mind being wooed.
Fair warning, though, I didn’t get past the first round of the game. Let’s just say there were a lot of very similar-looking avocados, and a time limit. But, I think the option is there to press Exit and try again. So focus carefully. The fate of free guac is in your hands..
