You Can Now Buy Chocolate Hummus At Trader Joe’s


There’s another sugar-craving buster on the market, and we are here for it: Trader Joe’s just put chocolate hummus on its shelves.

The dessert hummus only has 50 calories per serving. It’s a healthier choice to complete any meal, for sure.

The Trader Joe’s Chocolate Hummus is made from a standard base of cooked chickpeas, tahini, expeller pressed canola oil and sea salt. It has a typical creamy hummus texture and is made by a Trader Joe’s vendor that makes some of its other hummus varieties.

“We’ve swapped the savory for the sweet — instead of garlic, roasted red peppers, eggplant, or any of the other typical hummus mix-ins, we’ve added in cane, sugar, cocoa, and natural flavor in their place,” Trader Joe’s says on their website. They call it a “sweet-but-not-too-sweet” chocolaty spread with a “subtle sesame undertone.”

Trader Joe’s recommends eating the dessert hummus with fruits such as sliced apples, strawberries, bananas or snacks such as pretzels and graham crackers. Or, just eat it by the spoonful.

TJ’s made the announcement about their chocolate hummus on Instagram, and commenters flooded the post with likes:
