Best we've ever had. Who would have thought we'd find it at Costco. Go figure

  1. I love the Sabra babaganoush, alas no longer available at Costco. By the way, Sabra has recently raised their prices at least 30%.

      Sabra babaganoush is just about the only one I can find without tahini. It is amazing and close to 95% as good as Sacha Finklestajn's in Paris. Also, if you can still find the Spanish style sliced epggplant, get it.

    2. I particularly like Sabra "Supremely Spicy" hummus. Anybody else have a favorite?

      1. finally some good hummus. my boyfriend keeps buying the trader joe's brand from of course...trader joes. I keep telling him that it tastes like crap but he just won't listen to me.

        so how much does it cost?

        1. Sabra's is alright... the drawback for me is that I'm not so much a fan of the extra heavy but smooth tahini tacky-ness. I like a lighter, more moist hummus with less tahini. My favorite hummus is from Trader Joe's but it MUST be the ROASTED GARLIC kind. MUST MUST MUST.

          Btw, I found Sabra's at my local Pavillions as well as at Costco.

            I agree, I don't love the thickness or the heavy tahini taste either. I'll probably get dissed here, but I like Tribe of Two Sheiks - especially Cracked Chili Pepper and Nicoise Olive.

          2. The Luscious Lemon is my fav Sabra flavor. Love the extra zestiness. The Green Olive is also pretty good. I prefer the flavor and texture of the Hummus With Pine Nuts from Meza more than the Sabra version though.

            Anyone tried the Chunky Hummus?

              I absolutely love Sabra's Hummus. I never really cared for hummus before I found their Go Mediterranean. I love mixing the Luscious Lemon with a can of drained tuna instead of mayo. I also serve it on an endive leaf as an appetizer or snack. Love it spread on pita. Yes, I am an addict. I buy pretty much all the flavors. I don't find them to be thick with a tahini taste at all. I don't care for that.

            2. Love em all, the ver. with pine nuts is good
              Buying a tub of hummus is a bit overkill for me, not to mention the calories..but for a party its great. Costco and several fresh markets carry the line.

              1. I think it might be called "hannah's" in some areas. I recently posted on the same thing.

                1. I consider Sabra the bottom of the barrel. I'm also not one for over-tahini-d hummus(unless a certain friend of mine makes it and somehow that genre of hummus, in her hands, rises above). But, the worst offender is the Sabra baba ghanoush---I once took a bite of some and...bleccch! it was so sweet and tasted of mayonaise of all things(why would anyone put mayo in baba ghanoush?)...anyway...so, so bad.
