Trader Joe’s Is Now Selling Chocolate Dessert Hummus

This is proof that chocolate and chickpeas pair well together.

You love a scoop of hummus on pita chips or with fresh vegetables. But hummus…for dessert? It might not seem like the most natural treat, but once you get a mouthful of Trader Joe’s chocolate hummus, you’ll be convinced.

What’s in the Chocolate Hummus?

Like regular Trader Joe’s hummus, it’s made from a smooth base of chickpeas, tahini, canola oil and sea salt. But instead of roasted red peppers or garlic, this treat is finished with cane sugar and cocoa.

FYI: This isn’t the only dessert hummus on the shelf. You can find pumpkin pie dessert hummus at Aldi, and Costco reportedly has flavors like Edible Brownie Batter, Snickerdoodle Cookie and Creamy Vanilla Bean.

…But Is This Stuff Healthy?

Kind of! Trader Joe’s chocolate hummus has only 5 grams of sugar and 50 calories per serving. How sweet is that?

No one’s going to stop you from using pita to scoop up the chocolate hummus, though we’d recommend using salty pretzels instead. You could even stick with a healthy theme and use sliced fresh fruit or strawberries for dipping. Those who want more crunch could try a handful of banana chips.

Where Do I Find It?

Look for the hummus in Trader Joe’s refrigerated case. Priced at just $1.99, you can take home one for now and another for later. We already expect this dessert hummus to receive one of Trader Joe’s Customer Choice Awards for 2019. The winners will likely be announced next month. In the meantime, happy snacking!
