I've been wanting to try hummus. Is there a brand or flavor that tastes better than others? or are they all pretty much the same?

Theres Trader Joe's close to where I live, so I got to try all their different hummus and I like them all, but I think the one with roasted red peppers is my fav.

Roasted garlic favorite is my favorite. I have tried different brands and they are all pretty much the same.

I get a huge tub of the roasted red pepper one at costco for pretty cheap. I love it. It works great for my veggies and my boyfriend uses it in sandwiches instead of mayo.

The "roasted red pepper" flavor tastes the best to me. The garlic ones always seem too strong.

I LOVE Athenos Spicy 3 Pepper Hummus.
Then I gave up High Fructose Corn Syrup and sadly it was one of the ingredients in the Athenos Hummus Sad This made me very sad. I suppose I'll work on making some myself.

I think it is Sabra. That's pretty much the only brand I get, and I've had that flavor. Good stuff.

I've noticed that between brands the calorie count varies a lot for a serving (usually 2 Tbsps) from ~35 to 90. I know I always eat WAY more than one serving (more like 5 servings) so the calorie difference can start to add up. Just something to consider…

I really like Azars Hummus, although I actually just looked it up and apparently it is a Virginia based company so it may not be available nation wide. I had no idea! But, if your store has it, it’s delicious and only 37 calories per serving.

I used to make my own till I found Sabra. It is very smooth and they have lots of good flavors. The jalapeno one is addictive! Insofar as eating more than a serving: I always take out my tablespoon and measure it out into a bowl (and put the hummus back in the fridge) before I start eating. And no corn syrup in Sabra. Just straight up real food ingredients.
Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.

Went to target today and couldn't find sabra hummus, so I ended up getting Archer Farms Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. I must say, it is pretty tasty...70 calories for two tablespoons...not too bad. I plan on eating it as a snack with some raw veggies.

I love Sabra Pine Nuts hummus....it's seriously addictive though....once you start you can't stop. Also, Hummus isn't the best thing for diets, its kinda high in calories for the amounts you're allowed to have. My husband and I have made our own hummus and it's a little better for you cause you can control howmuch Tahini oil you put into it. i think that's what makes it higher in calories cause chick peas are 0 points i'm pretty sure... don't quote me on that.

low number of serving recipes
Could we have a set of recipes for only one or two servings? Maximum 4 servings. So many great recipes are for 6-12 servings and with only me on the diet, some can't be frozen either.
