Sabra Hummus and Stacy's Pita Chips (Party Host)

I’m excited to say that I was chosen to host another House Party this month! When I heard that the party was sponsored by Sabra I was ecstatic! I love their hummus. We buy at least one container of it per week. In our house we eat it with pita chips, raw veggies, on our sandwiches, and as a dip with pretzels. While there are many brands to choose from, one of our favorites is Sabra.

For hosting this party I received 4 free containers of Sabra hummus and a bag of Stacy’s pita chips. We really enjoy Stacy’s Pita Chips as well. They are made with all natural pitas and contain no artificial flavorings.

Also included in my party pack were a Sabra wooden spoon, Sabra trivet, and a CD with music from around the world! This was the perfect party for me to host because my learning team at school is working on food and nutrition. We had a joint after school meeting to discuss how to teach nutrition and exercise to our students and Sabra healthy snack party!

We had a great time. We ate, shared recipes, talked about healthy living, and relaxed to the music. There were even two people who had never had hummus before! I could hardly believe it. Every single person that came to the party loved the hummus and the pita chips. The overall favorite flavor was the roasted red pepper hummus, which just happens to be my favorite as well. I tried the spinach and artichoke hummus for the first time and thought it was a great alternative to fatty spinach artichoke dip.

In addition to using hummus as a dip I also ended up making hummus chicken salad which was a great variation on the original. There are several yummy entree recipes using hummus as well on the Sabra website. There's also a section on easy ideas for using hummus that has some unique ideas.

Sabra has 15 different varieties of hummus. At just 2 Weight Watchers points per serving it’s the perfect snack for people who are watching their weight but want something satisfying as well. I’m glad that I got the chance to share Sabra hummus with my friends and try a new flavor for myself.
