I had a serious case of FOMO last week as I watched Expo West take place out in Cali. There were so many amazing products I learned about just by following the hashtag on Instagram: #Expowest
One of those said products I learned about was from Delighted By Dessert Hummus. Yeah, you are reading that right, hummus that is meant to be dessert!
I’m a sucker for anything chickpea. Hummus, pasta, crackers, ANYTHING. So, naturally when I saw that there was now a reason to literally eat hummus for every meal of your day because there was now dessert hummus, I had to find it here in Dallas.
Thankfully, the Dallas market is usually one that is the first to get products like this, but they have a list on their site that lets you sign up to be alerted when it’s in a store near you– in case you’re as curious as I am about this hummus!
As excited as I was to try this hummus, I was also a little apprehensive. If you’re a hummus connoisseur like me, then you know the familiar light flavor of chickpeas. So I was wondering if that flavor was going to be completely masked by the sweet flavor of Snickerdoodle or if I would taste it slightly. (P.S. They have four different flavors of this stuff. I MUST try all of them stat)
This Snickerdoodle flavor I got has a really nice cinnamon sugar flavor that makes your tastebuds think that you’re eating an actual Snickerdoodle cookie. It’s sweet but not overpowering, which I prefer.
If you can get past the thought that this is ‘hummus’ then you will realize that the flavor tastes natural and is a less caloric, spreadable alternative to nut butter that can go on toast, on oatmeal or in smoothies.
The texture is pretty creamy. It is not an airy hummus.
If I had to compare it to something else, I would say the texture is similar to Sabra hummus.
It cost me $5.49 from Central Market here in Dallas, Texas.
How to #CookItHealthier:
OMG there are so many ideas swirling in my head as to how to enjoy all the flavors of this hummus!
To start, I kept things pretty basic just to test the flavor and see how I felt about it with foods with simple flavors. I tried it with some strawberries, which was delicious, especially if you like cinnamon. I also gave it a try with some pretzels, which are my favorite things to eat with hummus and my tastebuds were happy with life.
The Delighted By Hummus blog has some great recipe ideas for all their flavors! I hope to come up with one for Cook It Healthier soon! Until then, I suggest enjoying it as a healthier dessert option with fresh fruit or as an extra flavor pop to your oatmeal. There are not really additional nutrients you will get from this hummus, so it’s strictly a treat. But it’s one with low sugar and low calories, so i’ll choose that any day!
