Tribe Hummus is yummus! :-) Product Review

Hummus is one of the most popular food products to emerge from the Mediterranean region. Hummus is an exotic blend of pureed chickpeas, lemon, sesame tahini, oil, and spices with added flavors such as roasted garlic, roasted red peppers, scallion and dill.Hummus (pronounced Hum-es) is traditionally used as a dip with pita bread, crackers or fresh cut veggies. Many people use hummus as a spread on sandwiches (instead of high cholesterol mayonnaise), as a topping on broiled fish or chicken, on baked potatoes instead of sour cream, or as the main ingredient in a vegetarian sandwich.Hummus contains no saturated fat or cholesterol and is high in protein and fiber. Unlike many foods that are good for you, hummus also tastes great. It is a perfect food for anyone who is concerned about eating well or who is on a low cholesterol diet and doesn't want to sacrifice flavor. At Tribe Hummus, we were the first to add a variety of exciting ingredients such as Roasted Garlic, Roasted Red Peppers, and Cracked Chili that helped to take the product from an ethnic item to a mainstream offering.
So, Pam from Tribe Hummus was kind enough to send me some free coupons to try out Tribe Hummus- so yesterday while I was at Publix, I ventured over to the cheese and dips section, just to see if we possibly had any- I couldn't believe my eyes, there right before me was Organic garlic hummus, Organic original hummus and Organic roasted red pepper hummus. I got the roasted red pepper hummus- as soon as I got home and put up the groceries, I tried it out and couldn't stop eating it- it was soooo good! And so much healthier than chips and dip! I am going to try it with some veggies maybe for lunch. I love the fact that it is organic- I don't have to worry about pesticides in my food. My hubby liked it too- I will definitely be buying the garlic hummus on my next trip to Publix- can't wait to try it!

I like your blog! I was wondering how did you start doing reviews for products. I would love to do the same thing on my blog but don't know how you go about it. Do you just contact the company? Thanks!
