I had glanced at Hommus before and thought it was fairly high carb so I didn't pick any up. I really didn't like the taste and I never bought it before I low carbed, so I didn't think of it as a loss.
Well, that was before a Costco taste tester got hold of me.
They were showcasing Hannah's Roasted Peppers & Jalapeno Hommus with crackers. I ate a small piece of cracker, but it was the hommus that was fabulous! Spicy and full bodied, nothing like other hommus I had tasted. I immediately bought a 32 oz. container, and I've already been back to buy another one.
In fact, we ran out and I wanted people to try it for Thanksgiving but I couldn't get over there so I tried Trader Joe's to see if they had something similar closer to home. Trader Joe's has their own brand of Chipotle Pepper Hummus in a 8 oz. container for $1.79. Frankly, there is no comparison to the Costco version -- the Costco version is that much better. (I was very surprised!) And ounce for ounce, the Costco version is cheaper.
However, you have to eat the Costco version with the Trader Joe Soy & Flaxseed low carb chips!
