Cedar’s Hommus should be called Cedar’s Yummus!

One of my favorite things to have for an afternoon snack is hummus. And guess what? Big news!  I heard that Cedar’s Hommus was making new flavors.  I couldn’t wait to try them.  My family has been eating this brand of hummus for almost our whole lives. Or at least my whole life because my parents are a lot older.  When I heard they were making new flavors I was so happy.

What I have been having in the past is Cedar’s Classic Original.  It tastes original, of course, and I usually have it with sandwiches, crackers, vegetables and one time even as a quesadilla!  That last idea was my dad’s idea which was a new twist on eating hummus.

But now they have so many new flavors!  Check it out!  Adobo, Balsalmic Caramelized Onion, Everything, Pineapple Jalapeno and Sriracha!  We may need to come up with some new recipes for all these flavors.

Of course I had to taste test all of these.

After a tough decision my favorite flavors of the new ones turned out to be Adobo which has black beans in it, and Everything.  But my dad’s favorite was the Pineapple Jalapeno which had a sweet and a spicy taste to it and my mom really liked the Balsalmic Caramelized Onion.  The Sriracha was the one we didn’t know what to expect because we didn’t even know what Sriracha was.  But after some quick research we learned that it was a hot sauce.  When you first taste it you dont notice the spice but the longer it stays in your mouth the spicier it gets.  That is where the hot sauce comes in.  My brother really liked this one and in fact he said his favorite was Srichacha but then he said actually “all of them” were his favorites.  I ate 16 crackers with Cedar’s Hommus after taste testing and picking my favorites.  YUM!

I was noticing that we spell hummus differently than Cedar’s does.  You may have seen this too.  So we looked it up.  I didn’t know there was so many ways to spell the word hummus.  There are more than seven different ways.   There are many different spellings of the word from many different countries and cultures around the world.  Different ways are homus, humos, hommus, hummos, hommos and hummus.  I think it’s crazy that people spell the word hummus so many different ways but I can also understand it.  But really I guess it doesn’t matter as long as your tummy is happy.

Anyway, check out my video below so you can really understand how much I liked these different flavors and maybe get some ideas for yourself. And if you have new ideas on how to eat hummus that you think I might like, let me know!

    Hey Max!
    I loved tasting all the new flavors of Cedar’s Hommus too. It would be awesome if they could develop a “Tahini free” version for kids that go to schools where there are strict nut and seed free policies to protect kids with those allergies too. Then you could take Cedar’s to school events too!
