Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic Hummus Review

Tub Size: 7 oz
Price: $1.99
Dippers: Kirkland Tortilla Strips, Pita Bite Crackers, Carrots

I have to say I have a soft spot for Trader Joe's hummus. The majority of hummi that I've consumed from TJ's are delicious. Shout out to Trader Joe's for sticking with me through the good and the hummiserable.

The Roasted Garlic variety was no exception. Most traditional garlic hummi tend to be very garlicky. To the point that it overpowers the flavor of the chickpeas and tahini. This hummus has a very good garlic to garbanzo (G/G) ratio.

It is surprisingly thick though. A few of my tortilla chips fell victim to the hummus's grip and broke whilst scooping. I had to get my hands dirty and dig in deep on multiple occasions. It was the most masculine I have felt in weeks, having to work for every tidbit of hummus remnants in that feisty 7 ounce tub.

The appearance of the hummus leaves much to be desired. There were cliffs and valleys forming throughout consumption that made me question it's hummakeup.
It looks like quicksand, and from everything I've
hummus plateaus and glaciers
heard about quicksand, seems to have about the same viscosity.

But whatever the hummus lacks in appearance, it makes up for in taste. If there happened to be a marsh filled with Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic Hummus instead of quicksand, I would delight in jumping in. While thick and flavorful, the hummus somehow keeps me coming back for more. Traditionally, its hard to consume a lot of a thick hummus because of its density and richness. I ate this tub in two sittings. (Granted one of those I was severely intoxicated. But still... two sittings) The flavors meld in your mouth and dissolve on the tongue beautifully.

Trader Joe's has done it again. I only buy 2 things from the store. Hummus and dippers... Yet I make the drive out just for that. That's a testament to my dedication to the hummus game and this wonderful store. Overall, I give this hummus a 4 out of 5 chickpeas. Although thick, it tastes great (whether drunk or not).
