Wild Garden Hummus Dip

by Anne Paddock

This post should be dedicated to United Airlines who is responsible for me learning about Wild Garden Hummus Dip. On a recent flight, I ordered the “Tapas” snack box which had a variety of snacks but most importantly Wild Garden Hummus Dip. Before opening the single serve packet of hummus, I read the ingredient list and was impressed because the dip contains chick peas, sesame paste (tahini), water, sea salt, natural spices, and citric acid. And, then I tasted the hummus dip and found it delicious – no overwhelming garlic flavor (because there is no garlic) and not too salty – with a smooth creamy texture that was easily spread on chips or crackers.

dsc_0014-e1359311148324Wild Garden Hummus Dip Single Serve Packs come in 1.76 ounce (50 gram) triangular-shaped containers in two flavors:  traditional and sun-dried tomato. Sold in boxes of 5, the single packs do not have to be refrigerated (unless opened) and can be easily packed for a snack or lunch without worrying about leakage because the packaging is strong. To open, tear the designated tip corner and spread on crackers, chips, pita bread, or the vegetable of your choice. Each single serve pack contains 63 calories with 3 grams of fat and 6 grams of protein. With less than 2 grams of sugar and 120 mg of sodium, Wild Garden Hummus Dip is a wholesome snack that can be enjoyed virtually anywhere.
