I don't know about you but snack time can get really boring around here. One of the stinky things about working from home is that when I get the munchies, all I need to do is walk to the kitchen and start snacking. The bad part is that I rarely have anything decent to eat.
A couple years ago when my Smooch came out for Christmas, she went to the grocery store to get hummus for herself. I had always kind of gagged at the idea of hummus. No, I'm not kidding, as in real life gagging. Then I saw her eating, and figured I may as well be an example to my boys, and try something I'm not a fan of.
I have to admit, I was totally shocked at how delicious it was. I've become a fan, but a couple of the issues I've run into is gorging on the stuff, and I haven't really found anything I like to eat it with. I tried carrots and they didn't go together well for me. I think another time I tried it with plain old potato chips, and again, not a fan.
This is where Wild Garden comes in! I was able to try 4 pairings of hummus and crackers or chips. I'll have to admit that I only got 3 images of me trying the snacks because I ate one, and it was so good, it was gone before I thought about taking a picture!
I started with the veggie chips and traditional hummus. I'm not sure if there's a "right way" to do it, but I just squeezed the hummus out onto the chip. It was the perfect amount for one snack sitting.
The pita chips were my favorite. It felt like there a lot in the bag. These were paired with the traditional hummus as well. And yes, I finished the entire bag. Good stuff, and very flavorful.
There didn't seem to be as many chips in this bag as the other two, but I loved the roasted garlic hummus. I could've eaten that stuff like it was going out of style. I don't think multi-seed is my thing. They tasted good, but I'd probably go for the chips first.
I know that I want my boys to try the pairing, but I'm not sure sneaking it in to their lunch boxes will do much. A mom can always try, right? I know my Smooch will love them, and since she's a starving college student, I'm sending them to her in a care package.
Have you ever tried hummus before?
