Uncompensated Product Review: Sabra Hummus

I love Mediterranean food--such things as tabouleh, falafel, baba ganoush, and shish kabobs. A real favorite of mine is hummus. Restaurant hummus at most Mediterranean places is usually fantastic no matter how lowly the restaurant. Unfortunately, when I've tried to make my own hummus (grinding chick peas is how you start) it usually tastes like ground cardboard.

Now along comes Sabra hummus. I saw their commercial for this favorite Mediterranean treat of mine on television recently. I had never seen a commercial hummus advertised on television before so I decided I'd better try it. Sabra makes their hummus (it's sort of like a dip or a spread) in various flavors. I opted for the lovely spinach and artichoke version.

Here's what I think. Sabra Hummus is definitely better than any hummus I can make. It is not as good as hummus I've had in most middle eastern restaurants. I'm guessing that's because restaurant hummus is free of preservatives and is made fresh daily, whereas Sabra's version is not. Either way, it's hummus! So, if you crave that special delicacy you could do worse than sampling Sabra's.

If you try it, let me know what you think. And just to let you know, this review of Sabra Hummus is my own personal opinion for which I received absolutely no compensation (although, Sabra, I'd love to be your spokesperson, if you're listening.) One more thing--I noticed that Sabra's website is conducting a contest for a trip to Turkey--if you're interested.
