Hummus at Costco!

I bought a tub of hummus at Costco this weekend -Hannah's classic, $6- on the recommendation of a middle-eastern friend. Really good, really authentic tasting hummus!

  1. Huh, I try not to buy too large a tub of unfamiliar (in the sense of never tried that brand) products at COSTCO as they tend to disappoint. But I'll look into this.

      Oh the hummus is fine. We used to buy it and eat gobs of it at a time. Then I started making my own and prefer it, but the Costco plain hummus is good.

    2. The Safra brand? I love that stuff. I also hestitated to buy it at first in case we didn't like it. My 2 year old son LOVES hummus with pita and carrot sticks, so we go through a lot of it in our house. I love the smoothness of the Safra hummus and the flavor is great too! I like it spread on some pita or arabic bread with some chunks of Costco rotisserie chicken meat. Yum!

      1. It's the "Hannah" brand, I can't vouch for anything else. Also, add a dash of olive oil before you serve it (not mixed in).

        1. I like those hummus too. Our Costco carries big tubs of kim chee for $6 too (it was good!), but my husband won't let me buy it anymore.

          1. Yes. I've been buying Hannah's for years. I was buying two tubs a visit for a while. There is classic and pepper hummus, which is a bit spicy. I like the newer box containers vs. the old cylinder style. I personally prefer Hannah's to Sabra, which I find tasty in flavor but odd in texture and consistency. At the Costco in Queens, NY, they offer both brands. Hannah's also makes a tabouli which is just decent.

              we like the Hannah's hummus with jalapenos quite a lot. It has a touch of cumin in it - we got the tabouli once and it tasted good, but the texture and taste of the parsley was off - too coarse, and obviously a bit soggy and lacking in freshness.

                The texture of Sabra hummus *is* a little odd, but not in a bad way IMO. I think the flavor and consistency are terrific. Sabra's hummus with pine nuts... oh yeah!

                I don't generally go to Costco but I wonder if they have Sabra at the NJ Costcos.

                Not sure if I've ever tried Hannah's.

                  I also shop at Qns Costco, and generally avoid big tubs of prepared food that I cannot consume in couple of days (had bad precedent of food-poisoning). But last night, we needed something quick for the double-feature/picnic at the Socrates Park, so I grabbed Hannah's roasted pepper/jalapeno hummus. Mmmmmm, so good! I loved the chunkiness from the bits of peppers in it. Went well with Damascus bakery pitas (also from costco) and $3 bottle of Fuzelo from the liquorstore next door.
