I have only recently begun eating hummus, but I do like it. My favorite so far is the roasted garlic flavor, but I just bought some of the sun dried tomato and plan to try it later this evening.

I have yet to try Hummus but I'm excited to this week when I get grocery shopping!

Sabra is the spinach artichoke one that I just bought. I think that's the first time I tried that brand. My grocery store generally carries Tribe and Athenos. There are some interesting ideas on here of what else to do with it besides crackers & pita chips...thanks!

I've been getting Athenos hummus - either the greek style or spicy three pepper. Its 50 calories for 2 tablespoons. I put 2 tablespoons on a wrap and some chicken and its delicious! I usually throw in some veggies too!

I've never met a hummus I didn't like, but have to say roasted red pepper is a favorite.

I really love Sabra's Pine nut flavor, the spinach artichoke one is good too.
I do like making my own, but I can never get it as creamy as store bought. I am not a fan of dipping my veggies into it, but I do like it in wraps or with pita chips.

Mmmm.... I just love houmous. I have some most days and it brings my lunchtime salad to life. Plenty of reduced calorie varieties to choose from at about 70kcal per tablespoon. I keep meaning to try making my own. Anyone have any success with that?

I love the roasted garlic we buy at walmart. We use it on sandwiches in place of other condiments and it is wonderful. My only issue is that the containers are so big I can't get it all eaten and I don't know how long it keeps after opening. I haven't eaten it long enough to really tell if it is starting to go bad. I don't eat raw veggies so it doesn't work for me that way.

I don't often buy it but hummus and warm pitta bread is amazing. Its also a good dip for veggies too. I need the protein and healthy fats so its a good choice for me. I should eat more of it!

Red pepper hummus is delicious! I also like original hummus, but it is not for everybody.

I like red pepper as well, a store I use has morrocan spiced flavour which has a few bits of apricots and raisins in it too.

I make my own hummus to eliminate most of the fat. I make a mean roasted red pepper with cumin hummus that I love to dip all my veggies in. I also use it as a spread on my flat bread wraps for lunch. I keeps for a while in the refrigerator too.

N and my fav is Roasted Garlic from Summer Fresh we've yet to find a no-name brand that we actually do like (store brand) though we also enjoy making our own from scratch and adding our own flavoring to it.

I like plain hummus or the organic from Summer Fresh as well, never tried the sun dried tomato one but then again not a fan of sun dried tomatoes to start with.

I like it as a spread on a bagel or as a dip for veggies, i'll even grab a spoonful for no other reason then to have it when I'm peckish.

When I was younger, one of my favorite back to school lunches was hummus and pita bread (the other was a fluffernutter). I love taking hummus and filling halved hardboiled egg whites (instead of egg yolks and mayo in deviled eggs).

Personally, though, I've become more of a snob. I find that I like the homemade/more natural stuff a LOT more than what I get in the grocery store.

Spinach artichoke is one of my favorites, too. I also love Savory Dill, Baba Ganoush (eggplant), Sundried Tomato, and the olive one--all from Tribes, which tends to be lower in calories than the Cedars brand, which adds more oil to their hummus. It's surprisingly easy to make your own, too.

I don't care for the plain hummus or the roasted red pepper one but I love love the roasted garlic one. It's great for dipping raw veggies into.

A couple years back someone at a WW meeting mentioned how they liked hummus. I looked at it several times in the grocery store and couldn't get myself to buy it. Eventually I asked if I were to try one for the first time, what flavor did they recommend and they said roasted red pepper. So I tried it and I liked it. I've had it a few times over the years. Last night in Walmart, I thought I'd go out on a limb and try a new flavor and I found spinach and artichoke...I think I have a new favorite! Coupled with some whole wheat pita chips, it was an awesome snack.
