The idea of hummus in a tube sounds like something you'd find at 7-11 but no, I found this hummus to-go made by Wild Garden at Whole Foods. I had to laugh a bit because anything in a tube, at least to me, just strikes up thoughts of chemistry experiment or cheesiness.
I mean really, would you ever imagine hummus in a tube? It's kind of like cheese in a can, or pancake batter from a whip cream type bottle. Something is just slightly off, but I digress. What really is important is...
"Does it taste good?"
The answer for this Wild Garden hummus Traditional flavor in a tube is yes, it tastes good. I'd say it's a bit on the lemony side for me but for hummus in a tube it was alright, and it has simple ingredients: water, chick peas, sesame paste, sea salt, spices, and citric acid. There are 7 flavors: Traditional, Sundried Tomato with Olive Oil, Roasted Garlic, Black Olive, Red Hot Chili Pepper, Fire Roasted Red Pepper, and Jalapeno.
The tube itself holds about 2 tbsps of hummus at 70 calories total which is a nice size for an afternoon snack at work, for the kids at day care, or for easy road trip snacks. Next time I'm going on a plane, I'm so bringing some of this stuff. The Wild Garden hummus to-go is 2.4 oz so that falls under the 3oz airport liquid rule.
In the picture, I slathered the hummus on a Lundberg Wild Rice Organic Rice Cake, and topped it with some fresh cut up cherries. I know, hummus and cherries sounds odd, but I was feeling experimental, and the combo was not bad. Would have been better if the cherries were a little sweeter, but I enjoyed the unusual snack.
