I’m not going to lie to you. I just ate almost half the container of this Roasted Garlic and Dill Hanes Hummus (click here for the website) with potato chips. It was amazing! And I didn’t even feel like I was eating a healthy form of junk food, it was just so very good!
I stopped into Choices grocery store to buy my favourite frozen desert, the Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss dark chocolate frozen bars (see my previous review here). I walked in through the doors and standing right there was a gentleman who asked if I wanted to try his hummus. It really was his, he was Yohannes Petros, the person on the container. I tried all three flavours then stood there for a minute because a woman walked up with her hands full of grocery bags. She was also offered the hummus and because both of her hands were full, I watched him kindly feed her. This is a man who is very passionate about his creation and he wants to share it with everyone. I walked around the store, decided I couldn’t live without the Roasted Garlic & Dill flavoured Hanes Hummus and went back to grab one before I went through the check-out. He really should share this with everyone.
Probably because I was hungry and there was something with dill in front of me, I came up with the wonderful plan of eating the hummus with potato chips. It was amazing. An absolute joy of dancing taste buds frolicking in my mouth. I have tried several brands of hummus but I have never seen a roasted garlic and dill flavour and it was such an unexpected delight that I thoroughly enjoyed.
The Hanes Hummus has a bit more kick than any other hummus I have eaten but the Hot Date! flavour truly was spicy (I don’t eat spicy food so it was quite spicy for me). I ate the Roasted Garlic & Dill Hanes Hummus with bread as well as potato chips. It tasted good with both options but I have a feeling I could have eaten it with raw peas, which I absolutely hate, and I would have still enjoyed it. It is just that good. When I bought the hummus, it was frozen and I was told it would be good for 10 days once it thawed. I really like when I buy food that has a short life span. It makes me feel better buying food with real ingredients. I know it is healthier and it also tastes so much better.
