Trader Joe's Hummus Win and Fail

I love hummus and always have some on hand.

I took a chance and tried Trader Joe's chocolate hummus and dill pickle hummus.

The chocolate hummus is so good I don't think I'll buy it again.

The dill pickle flavor had such a horrible artificial taste I didn't take a second bite.

What is your favorite hummus?

My favorite hummus for veggies & crackers is TJ’s eggplant hummus.

My favorite snack is sliced apples with TJ’s chocolate hummus.

I like pickles, but the dill pickle hummus doesn’t call to me.

We do not have a Trader Joes in my area, the closest one is about 50 miles away, but I do try to the make trip every month when things are normal (not so much now with Covid). The next time I go though, I will have to try to get that! I'm trying to train myself to like hummus, as I know it's good for you and an a healthier/lower point option than other snacks.

Is our favorite. We make “bowls” for lunch with rice or quinoa, peppers, cukes, hummus, tomatoes, tabouli, S and p, and any other veggies in crisper that we have on hand. Yum. So healthy!

I love Trader Joe's chocolate hummus. I can't keep it around because I have no self control when it is here. I'm not drawn to dill pickle hummus.

I love the chocolate hummus also. Last time I was at TJ's, they didn't have any and I noticed the sign was turned backwards. I was hoping that's just what they do when they're out and not that it was discontinued, because I would be in mourning! My fruit was just not the same this week with no chocolate hummus!

I like pickle flavored stuff but that hummus just doesn't appeal to me. The buffalo chicken one is okay, but I only get it every once in awhile for something different to take for school lunches. I don't love the texture of hummus- for whatever reason the chocolate one is super smooth and doesn't have that texture.

I second that! It's my favorite hummus because of the ingredients. I don't use oil at all, and this is the only commercial hummus I know of that doesn't have oil as an ingredient.

I love Trader Joe's whole wheat lavash, which I bake at a low temperature until it is crunchy like a cracker. I just break it up in pieces, or if I want to be fancy, I cut it into cracker sized pieces before I bake it. I love their WW lavash because it doesn't use oil, at least the ones sold in SoCal. I learned that in other areas of the country they do have oil as an ingredient.

I loved their Edamame hummus, but they changed their distributor and it messed with the taste. 😢

I love, love their Mediterranean hummus! I'm mad at myself now, because I was just there this morning and didn't pick any up!

I've never had chocolate hummus, though. I didn't even know that was a thing. I'll have to try it next time. Also, I dislike pickles, so I would never get that type of hummus.

My favorite is the Boar's Head Kalamata Olive Tapenade hummus. I get it at Sprout's. So good! But I love Kalamata Olives!

I like my own homemade hummus. I found a recipe online that is simply the best! It is a plain hummus.

Sabra made a lemon hummus that was always in our 'fridge until it was discontinued.

There are several Mediterranean deli's close to us with a wonderful assortment of hummus flavors and we go there. I don't know who their supplier is or if they make them in-house.

Roasted garlic!

I love their roasted garlic hummus.

I have lots of food problems, so having something flavorful that doesn't make me sick is wonderful! It's great with crudités, too, which is awesome for the food issues.
