Trader Joe's Kalamata Olive Hummus Review

Trader Joe's Kalamata Olive HummusSince reviewing Tribe 40 Spices Hummus, one of my lunchtime staples, I have branched out into the world of hummus, trying different flavors and even attempting my own (which sadly, I am not talented at). I continue to be amazed at the diversity of hummus: it can be used as a dip for both crackers and veggies, and even incorporated into wraps and sandwiches nicely. Recently, I spotted Trader Joe's Kalamata Olive Hummus, a flavor I had yet to try. Intrigued, I snapped it up for a taste test.

I decided the best way to judge this snack would be alongside my old standby of baby carrots. Wow Trader Joe's Kalamata Olive Hummus! There are no other words. This hummus easily took the place of my old favorite. It's rich flavor, complete with little chunks of kalamata olives, paired easily with veggies and cracker alike. I even admit to dipping straight into the tub to get some of the savory yumminess, a feat I have not yet been tempted to do with any other hummus! The only minor complaint I have is that I wish this product came in a larger size.

Each 2-tablespoon serving of Trader Joe's Kalamata Olive Hummus provides 50 calories, 3 grams of total fat, 0.5 grams of which is saturated (5% and 2% of the daily value), 4% of the DV for sodium (85 grams), 1 gram of protein and 5 grams of carbohydrates, which includes 1 gram of fiber and 1 gram of sugar. This seemed about standard for hummus nutritionals.

I paid $2.29 for this 8 ounce container (8 servings of hummus), which is about $1.00 cheaper than the Tribe Hummus I normally buy. This brand easily wins, hands down. One word of caution: if you are not a fan of Kalamata Olives straight up, this hummus is not for you. Otherwise, dig right in!
