At the moment I am liking the Sabra® brand with Roasted Pine Nuts, but for awhile there (last week) I was addicted to the Private Collection (high end Kroger® brand) Extra Garlic flavor.
Must have sea-salt pita chips to enjoy fully.
Is this shit good for me?
Sabra's my favorite too, especially the supremely spicy flavor, but I think it has the most fat of all the leading brands. Shit, I sound like such a frau.
I have been buying a hummus made from edamame.
OK, that was so lame.
I'm almost ashamed.
Forgive me, DL.
Is this really a thread?
Bite my crank, five.
The Israeli-made Sabra® is banned at all my local supermarkets.
I'm not a huge hummus eater, but I'll sometimes buy the three-variety container from Trader Joe's. I stopped eating hummus regularly because I found that it gave me massive digestive issues.
I make my own hummus. I grow the chick peas organically in my back garden. I am currently adding my home grown organically grown pumpkin to my home made hummus.
Hummus is surprisingly high in calories.
Do we have a Sabra troll now? Sabra is ok but not spectacular. I like Trader Joe's better. And Fresh & Easy has a great spicy hummus too!
My favourite is the hummus I make myself in about five minutes with a can of chick peas, some tahini, lemon juice, and lots of garlic. I don't blend olive oil in because it just adds extra fat without extra taste, but I do put a little bit of the good stuff on the top where it adds a nice flavour.
The hummus they make at Carmel on 108th Street in Forest Hills.
All commercial store bought hummus looks like cold cat vomit to me. The middle eastern restaurant where I live makes very good home made hummus.
I like the hummus from Sahadi's on Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn.
I never understand why people are so impressed by "home-made hummus" It takes less than 10 minutes to make.
I remember in 1991, I introduced my mother to hummus. She'd never had it before and I had only had it for the first time recently at college. No supermarkets outside my college town carried it.
Now it's everywhere.
The freshly made hummus in restaurants always tastes so garlicky. Give me the over-processed crap in a variety of flavors any time.
Is hummus a fade, or is it here to stay?
I fly to Beirut and have the sous chef at Tawlet whip me up a batch. Then we have dirty, forbidden sex, and then I fly back. Private, never commercial.
It's made in Israel, r7? Excellent. I must stock up.
I like but Chick Peas give major GAS!!
Where the fuck do you live, R7? Damascus?
Yellow Lentil Hummus

I don't think home-made hummus is impressive, but I do wonder why people buy processed crap when hummus is so easy to make at home and tastes much better than the store-bought kind.
Does hummus affect the taste of cum? Any flavors I should be on the lookout for?
Sabra or Tribe are decent. Cedar's is ok and there's a brand I get at Sprouts that is probably the best, but I can't recall the name (maybe it's a house brand). Anything is better than that Athenos crap, though.

I like Sabra or Trader Joe's hummus with olives. So good as a sandwich spread.
Who knows what "sabra" means in Hebrew?
In the early years of the Israeli state, Sabra referred to native-born Israelis, but now it means someone whose parents were both born in Israel.
[quote]The term alludes to a tenacious, thorny desert plant, known in English as Prickly Pear, with a thick skin that conceals a sweet, softer interior. The cactus is compared to Israeli Jews, who are supposedly tough on the outside but delicate and sweet on the inside.
Sabra is awful.
My favorite is Chef Earl's which is available at Whole Foods. The sundried tomato basil hummus is my absolute favorite.
I always thought it was a black thing.
Where ever did you get the idea that hummus is a black thing?
This is the hummus recipe I swear by, and others always compliment it.
I'm an Arab and have only ever had homemade hummus. Well except for when I'm in a restaurant and I have no idea if they make theirs from scratch.
I don't know how to compare it to store-bought but hummus made from scratch is delicious.
Hummus and socks. All these years, and it's come to hummus and socks.
Any commercial hummus I've tried has always been way too salty, and over-processed. I know it's not a great kitchen skill to make hummus, but homemade is best, IMO. Roasting, or sauteing, the garlic I use makes it more savory, and always fresh lemon juice, never any bottled stuff.I like it particularly lemon-y, so I include a bit of zest. Some black pepper, a pinch of cumin.This is a dish where your best olive oil can really shine, just float some on top after you put it into its dish. It keeps at least a week. If the hummus is too thick for your liking, whiz in some water, be careful not to turn it into baby food.
We've been enjoying delicious homemade humus made from food-grade diatomaceous earth.
I dust my homemade hummus with Bon Ami!
Thank you Miss Crawford at R40
Another vote for Sabra for the grocery store brands. It simply has the best flavor and consistency. Not surprised it has the most fat. Cedar's isn't as flavorful, and Trader Joe's is far too lemony-tart for my taste.
Love some Sabra roasted red pepper hummus on a whole wheat wrap with diced tomatoes and sea salt. Delish. Hummus is very good for you, high in iron and minerals, chick peas are a great source of protein and fiber. Add some garlic and/or lemon for further benefits.
I've tried all the brands---Athenos is awful; Sabra has declined in quality and some of the flavors have a LOT of calories--and for me, Fountain of Health has the best texture and taste. I'm eating some now!
I make my own. Hummus is ridiculously over priced. I have also developed a liking for baba ganoush, made with roasted eggplant. Mmmm.
I like the smoothness of store bought hummus.
When I make my own, the food processor cannot duplicate the smooth consistency of store bought.
Sabra and Trader Joe are my favorite.
I invented hummus.
I LOVE Fresh and Easy's hummus. Especially the lemon Cilantro. Yum.
Mediterranean Hummus from Trader Joe's is almost as good as homemade. I grew up on homemade and my dad also loves this brand.
[quote]Private Collection (high end Kroger® brand)
Really? No one?
If I can't do homemade hommous, Cedar's is the next best.
I've tried all the commercial brands of Hummus and with everyone my tongue gets very sore. It gets these painful welts on it and I have to suck on ice for a while to get them to go down. What common ingredient is probably in all the brands that I must be allergic to in some way? Anyone know?
Oh yeah, one time I had it in a falafel place with those little falafel balls and the same thing happened. I don't know if they made it themselves or used some commercial one. It wasn't a fancy place, just one of those kosher pizza places that also sells falafel. After a couple of bites I had to leave it as my tongue was getting swollen from the welts developing.
I hear it's very healthy so I've tried but I guess it's not for me. Now I can eat canned chick peas with no problem so it's not the chick peas.
You may have an allergy to sesame. Hummus has Tahini, which is a sesame paste.
If you make your own, you can omit Tanini. Trade Joe makes one that is Tanini free.
Try it and see if it makes a difference.
R42, you have a nut allergy and are thus hated by DL! (Seeds, nuts, same thing.)
R45, I've had good luck achieving a super smooth-textured hummus by first grinding the chick peas up a bit on their own in the food processor; then adding lemon juice, water and any spices (typically salt, garlic, cumin, cayenne) and mixing it all a bit longer; and then finally mixing the tahini with some olive oil and slowly drizzling this into the food processor while it's running... this helps to give the hummus a smooth, creamy texture. It's awesome!
My city has banned all sale of products coming from Israel.
r u serious? it's not a black thing???
I love hummus too much. Damn, it's so delicious.
It's a whole lot better for you than cake, donuts, chips, fries, but it is high calorie.
I like to shoot a load in my hummus if I have to make it for a work function.....yummmm
I usually make my own, but of all the commercially available brands, I love Trader Joe's Mediterranean hummus. It's a lighter fluffier hummus, and the balance of lemon and garlic to tahini is perfect.
One thing I hate is any flavored hummus, like chipotle or roasted red pepper. Also dislike tomatoes served with it, like on a sandwich
Lesbians love making hummus. I'm surprised there isn't a lesbian-helmed hummus brand.
Sabra's not my favorite, but Costco carries boxes of a dozen individually sized hummus cups, for something like $6.99.
They're the perfect size.
Reason for boycott ....
Sabra is co-owned by the Strauss Group. The Strauss group provides financial support and supplies to the Golani and Givati brigades of the Israeli military, which have been found by the United Nations to be violators of human rights.
That is a new level of stupidly, R62.
Just say you don’t want to buy products made by Jews instead of coming up with this crap.
I never eat Hummus much, but now I might try this Sabra brand.
Hummus looks like baby poop. Smells about the same, too.
You trolled it twice and still - nobody asked, R62. There was a clue in there for you.
I like Sabra pine nut hummus. My town isn't dumb and precious enough to ban Israeli products.
Thanks R52. Maybe it is that. It never occurred to me. Truthfully I didn't know what was in Tahini. I'll give the non Tahini one a try.
Very easy and cheap to make your own, with or without tahini.
Whirl a can or 2 of chic peas in a blender. Add seasonings of choice, lemon, maybe cumin, olive oil, whirl to blend. Add tahini if desired.
Other beans make a great dip as well. Try white kidney beans Cannelloni (spelling) beans are delicious for this.
You can substitute peanut butter for tahini unless, of course, you're allergic to that.
I like Joseph's Artichoke & Olive hommus and Tribe Forty Spices.
R65 has baby taste so of course she would think that.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
