Yep near the Deli. I work in Stop & Shop and ours is in the Food Bazaar section near the deli.

I agree with XENA, make your own, it is better! Add some roasted red peppers when you are feeling creative. emoticon

There is hummus in the kosher section too. It's insanely easy to make though. allrecipes.com/Recipe/Easy-Hummus/Detail.a

Gotcha! I am in a very rural Montana town, we have an Albertsons and a small local market. I've never seen Trader Joe in the larger towns, either

I was afraid this might happen. I guess Trader Joe's is not every place. But it is a magnificent store, reasonable prices, interesting healthy foods. It started in California, I think, but now there are stores in many places.

It is so majorly cool that Spark People has a team devoted to LOVING Trader Joe's.

Where do you live?

LOGCABINCOOK - I'm with you. In fact, almost everything is better tasting and better for you if you make it yourself.

Don't buy it! Make it! Chickpeas, lemon, tahini (look with peanut and almond butters), olive oil, garlic (or roasted garlic) a bit of parsley. One you buy the tahini you can make a whole pound of hummus for about $1.25. Make it organic for about 25-50 cents more.

A very tasty alternative is to add roasted eggplant and make a hummus/babaganoosh blend. TO DIE FOR.

I have found very few hummuses that I like over homemade.

It's so easy to make.

But if you really want to buy it, look in the prepared food case with fresh salsa, chip dips, etc.

TerrySue - that's just how I do it - but instead of pitas, today I used the whole grain tortillas and cooked them in my quesadilla cooker that I bought at a yard sale today - brand new! - for a buck!

I'd get a good recipe and just make it.

I do 2 tins of chick peas (making it for 6 of us), with fresh garlic, a touch of lemon juice, and enough oil to make it the right texture.

Easy, easy and eat it with pita breads cut in triangles and baked - then cooled. Whole wheat pita breads are yummy!

Usually make my own, but skip the tahini anyway. The premade stuff is in the deli section in the refrigerated case with the fancy cheese, premade sandwiches, etc.

Most stores have some kind of olive bar in the deli. I usually find it there.

You can get tahini in a Greek or Middle Eastern supermarket. Or you could just whir some sesame seeds in your magic bullet or spice grinder.

Mashed chick peas
olive oil
lemon juice
salt
garlic
crushed sesame seeds.

I have actually removed olive oil and tahini sometimes to save calories.

In our grocery store, it is with the other dips and specialty salsas and stuff like that, kinda near the fancy cheese section :)

I read today about an edamame hummus that I NEED to find and try! I love edamame so a chickpea/edamame combination hummus sounds delicious! My favorite hummus right now would have to be the one that has roasted garlic and cumin on top....mmmmmm.

Tahini is in the isle with the peanut butter, if it's not labeled tahini it is ground seasame seeds.

At my grocery store they have it in the deli section and they also have a little bit in a cool case in the produce section near the value added stuff like the already cut up stir fry veggies, etc.

with the cheeses, or try making it. It is so easy to make. A can of chickpeas, or try black beans( my
daughters favorite) some tahini, garlic, and then you can add anything,roasted peppers, cilantro,etc. You just buzz everything up in the food processor.

In our grocery store its with the cheese too. Try the roasted red pepper, it's pretty nummy.

I shop at a store called Ingles and it is near the deli area. Same as Aron60 - near the better, country specific cheeses.

In my grocery store it's with the better cheeses--(feta, romano, herbed cheese, etc.) It comes in small tubs. Just ask the store clerks.
