Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with Pretzel Crisps to GoUltimately, what's on the inside is what really counts, but I must admit that I'm drawn to unique packaging. I was looking for some hummus when I saw these plastic containers that reminded me of UFOs. Upon further examination, they turned out to be Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with Pretzel Crisps to Go. Since I had never tried both the hummus and the pretzel crisps, I decided to give it a go.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 container (4.3 ounces)
Calories: 320
Total Fat: 21 grams, 32%
Saturated Fat: 3 grams, 15%
Sodium: 720 mg, 30%
Protein: 6 grams
Carbohydrates: 31 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugar: 2.5 grams
Price: $1.98 (4.3 oz)

The hummus was tasty with more of a kick than I'd expected, and the pretzel crisps were salty and crisp like a normal pretzel although they seemed just a tad damp from being in the refrigerator. In one sitting, I ate all the pretzel crisps with about 1/3 of the hummus - I spreading the hummus conservatively on each crisp, but you have A LOT of hummus to work with. I ate my to-go pack at home, but if I had really been on the go, I would have been bummed to have so much hummus left over.

But alas, what really gets me is that the container is really 3.5 servings - ridiculous, especially when you add up the nutrition facts. For the entire container, there is 320 calories from 15% of the daily value for saturated fat and 30% of the DV for sodium. Unfortunately, this does not make me snack happy.

A 4.3 ounce package cost $1.98 at Walmart Supercenter, and while I loves me some Sabra Hummus, I think this "to go" container just doesn't cut it as a portion controlled snack option - way too many calories and fat. I think I would rather invest in a small(er) container, and portion out my own hummus in that - and then I can eat it with more than pretzels.
