GravyDog Jan 1, 2007 11:35 PM

She is located in Philedelphia - my calls have gone unanswered. Apparently distrubuted through United Foods but they havent answered my calls either. No retailers in NYC carry her fabulous, Tahini free, white container of goodness like you would not believe.
this hummus saved my life, i must find! please help if you have any information. thanks!

    I understand completely. It's the BEST. You can get it in Mount Airy at Weaver's Way (Carpenter and Greene Streets) for sure. I've also gotten it at Reading Terminal before, but that was more of a fluke kinda thing.

      the name is "Bobbi's Your Favourite Hummus" I screwed up, sorry! she makes original, garlic and jalepeno(sp!) i got a call back this morning from United foods (800 451 4520) spoke to a nice lady in sales department who gave me names and phone numbers of small specialty food stores in area that carry United Food products. After several calls, one place agreed to order Bobbi's Hummus for me. I ordered three cases, let me know if anybody wants some...YIPPPEEE.

        Some of the best hummus I've had in Philly is the Byblos house brand available for sale next door in Sue's produce on 18th. No preservatives of any sort. According to the guy at Sue's it flies off the shelves.

          I love Bobbi's jalepeno hummus, I usually pick it up at Metropolitan bakeries, including the one in the Reading Terminal Market.

            In case anyone else, like me, is now curious about Bobbi's hummus, I noticed it today at the Whole Foods in Wynnewood.

              Looked for Bobbi's hummus at the Wynnewood Whole Foods, but did not find it. Do you remember where it was? I saw (and bought) Helen's hummus, which is nothing special.

                It was in the same case as the other hummus, but maybe on a different shelf. I think that they only had the garlic hummus, or at least that's what I bought. It's a white 12-oz. container, with dark blue writing on the side.

              We've been on the search for Bobbi's as well!! We can no longer get it at the Whole Foods in Princeton...which it never seemed to sit on their shelves. Also, the McCaffery's in Yardley no longer carries it. If anyone one in the Bucks County area knows of a store that carries Bobbi's we'd be very greatful to know!! NOTHING compares!

                McCaffrey's in Yardley had it this week. If you can't locate it, ask the guy behind the specialty cheese counter.

                Since there is no tahini in this hummus, what are the ingredients? Is it lower calorie than some others typically are?

                  Also spotted it in the South Street Whole Foods tonight (garlic, red pepper, and jalepeno), in a separate refrigerated case, next to aisle 4. New packaging, at least from the last time I bought it. I believe it was $5.99 for a 12oz container, but I could be recalling the price incorrectly.

                  Seems odd that the Princeton Whole Foods in all its gigantic-ness, doesn't carry it, JVU, you should ask for it at the customer service counter.

                    The Princeton store is getting the product in next week or so...waiting for a larger size to arrive. Didn't know they made a red pepper flavor - hopefully, we'll see it.

                      She makes a jalapeno(sp), Garlic and black bean as well as regular flavor bobbi's. For those posts in New Jersey - Mrs. Greens carries as well as Whole Foods, NJ but not Whole Foods in NY. If you call United Natural Foods and speak to anyone in the sales department they will give you a bunch of stores in your area that carry their products (800 451 4520) - Once I got some numbers from United Natural, I just called Mrs. Greens and asked them to order me a case - name is "Bobbi's Your Favourite Hummus" - beware, $7 dollars a container in NY (well worth it). I found out the reason a lot of places dont carry it is because people dont want to pay that much for hummus and it is so fresh that it discolors quickly - They ARe ALL MAD!!

                        Finally found Bobbi's Your Favourite Hummus at the Wynnewood Whole Foods today. It's really quite excellent, so I thank Gravy Dog for the original heads up.
