Anyone looking for Bobbi's Hummus?

Well, after a long wait...Bobbi's is BACK! Bobbi apparently sold the business to her son, and fortunately we are able to enjoy that garlic breath we have all missed...
We picked some up at the Whole Foods in Princeton this weekend - they also were having a tasting, so I think we are OK for the time being. There is a black bean hummus that's new. YUM!

    Metropolitan Bakery has it too.

      I'm doing a story for the Weaver's Way (www.weaversway.org newsletter on Bobbi's Your Favorite Hummus product. If anyone would like to give me a quote for the article, I would be happy to have it. I am an addict of this product. I can't believe they don't have a web site.

        Looking forward to your article... I get my Bobbi's fix at WW, too ;)

        If only they carried the Jalepeno... you don't even know.... SO great...

        I bought some of their red pepper hummus from Double Shots yesterday. It's good stuff--nice and garlicky, and almost fluffy texture. Pretty color, too. :)

          Also available at Whole Foods Markets... in a word, this hummus is addicitive, bordering on seductive... just be careful of the garlic hummus... it stays with for days!

          In addition to Whole Foods, both the Ardmore and RTM locations of Downtown Cheese have it.

            I'm sorry to say, but, what is all the fuss about this hummus? You might as well eat raw cloves of garlic! I do like garlic, but this stuff is an absolute assault to the tastebuds.

              I found this wonderful treat at McMillan's Bakery in Westmont, NJ. I tried both the garlic and the jalapeno and they are both superb, but I do prefer the extra kick that the jalapeno provides.Who carries it in the West Chester, Pa, area? Whole Foods at Brinton Lake is closed. Any other places??

                Pardon my ignorance. I love garlic & I love hummus, but I'm not familiar with Bobbi's hummus. Is this something that I might be able to get at a Whole Foods or Fresh Market in Knoxville?

                  It's been available at McCaffrey's in Yardley for the past 6-8 months (at least 5 or 6 different flavors).

                    You can also get it at the Headhouse Square Farmer's Market every Sunday.

                    Sue's (at 18th and Sansom) is now carrying it too.

                      For those of us in the Montgomery burbs, Henning's in Harleysville carries it.

                      Just moved to NYC from Philly - is it possible to find Bobbi's in Manhattan or is it Philadelphia only?

                        Well, Bobbi's is good.......but waaaay overpriced for what it is and the amount you get... which is not why I'll be switching to another brand...I'm a loyal customer...I'll simply make it myself. I just feel that unless I'm buying some terriffic imported truffle oil, or exotic cheese, I don't want to be burdened with paying that much money for something that comes packaged in a plastic tub that's the size of two dixie cups.

                        Bobbi's is back in NYC! I always, always look -- in Fairway, in Whole Foods, in my corner bodega -- hoping in vain to find my favorite hummus. Yesterday, quite by accident, I sropped into West Side Market, two blocks north of Fairway, where I never shop, and there it was! I grabbed 2 Jalapeno and 1 Black Bean, checked out an ran like hell. Yum.

                          Tantejoan, Whole Foods has it now, too, which is where I get it. But now that I know that Westside Market has it, I'll probably buy it there instead because I like to support "the little guy" whenever possible Westside is a treasure!

                          I don't know you from Adam (or Eve), but if I'm ever in there and see a woman with her arms loaded with hummus, fumbling toward the checkout, I'll know it's you. Let's just hope we're never in there at the same time, when there's only one container left. ;-)

                          I used to enjoy Bobbi's Garlic Hummus. Lately, I'm quite happy with the more reasonably-priced alternative at Aldi's.

                            i just learned this stuff is made in that scary little inwards-facing shopping center at 5th + spring garden.

                            almanac at 4th + poplar carried it last time i checked.

                              Sams Club near Reading PA was sampling Bobbi's Hummus a few weeks back. We bought two, loved it, and would like to get more. Unfortunately, there are no Whole Foods Markets around here.

                              BTW, they are on Facebook.

                                Whole Foods in Union NJ was sampling it yesterday (12/03/11), although I have to agree with the poster who said it's basically like eating raw garlic. Delicious though! I wonder what the secret recipe is, other than garlic cloves, mashed garlic, raw garlic, sauteed garlic, and a couple of black beans.
