Tastes Like: Garlic – very strongly of garlic with a jalapeno aftertaste.
Great With: The usual vegetable suspects: caulifower, yellow pepper, and carrots. Of course, you can get fancy with Trader Joe’s Quinoa and Black Bean Tortilla Chips – or you can
lick it off your fingers because who does THAT amirite?
Perfect For: You know how they say “some like it hot”? In case you think you might like it hot but aren’t sure if you like it that hot, this hummus is a good place to start. In my opinion, this is less spicy than other spicy hummuses out there by a country mile. Less pure heat, more flavour! But isn’t that what you really want, anyway?
Must Know: Kosher, gluten-free, and somehow not vegan. I know! I read all the ingredients twice and can’t figure out how this hummus isn’t vegan. It’s totally beyond me but if you’re a vegan who eats hummus, watch out, I guess.
$2.99 – acceptably affordable for hummus, I should think. And perhaps it’s an optical illusion of the container, but I feel like you get MORE hummus with TJ than other leading brands of similar texture (cough Sabra cough) – however, it’s only a deal if you manage not to eat the entire container at once while hovering over the cupboard but who does THAT amirite….
