    Love hummus but is it really just catching on? I ate it years and years ago in the States.

    I really discovered hummus about 10 years ago when I got braces as an adult and at times, couldn't eat anything solid. I am a purist - I like the basic, plain kind and storebought is a poor second to a Turkish take-out place near me that makes it fresh every day. Although I got my braces off many years ago - I still eat hummus about 3-4 times a week. It's one of my top 5 favorite foods.

    hummus has been around forever. i make my own - chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, lemon, salt, pepper, tahina (sesame paste) and a dash of cinnamon. delicious. and so easy.

    I thought this too. Maybe it's just now trendy?

    The city I'm from has several Lebanese restaurants that have been around forever, therefore so has hummus. My very tradition Southern cooking grandmother even made it. (Except she called it "Lebanese bean dip".) I like to make it with extra garlic and a little smokey paprika sprinkled on the top, sometimes some sliced green onions on top, too, to make it pretty.

    There is a Lebanese family here in town that owns a deli, and they make the best hummus I have ever tasted. Plain old hummus. There is no way I'd eat flavored stuff.

    I used to only buy the red pepper flavor one but then I tried the plain and found it tasted so much better. Also, the flavor varies by brand so it's worth trying out different ones. The Trader Joe's plain is my favorite now.

    I mostly buy plain, and have loved it since I was a kid. The only variation that I will occasionally buy is the roasted garlic flavor by a brand called Sabra. It comes with the garlic nestled ontop in some oil and you can mix it in when you open the package.

    I really prefer making my own though. I usually throw a couple dashes of hot sauce in my homemade stuff, not enough to make it spicy, just enough to give a little bit of a different flavor.

    This is part of an Ad agency pr blitz. Getting sick of the line between conventional media and social media being so slim.

    Geez- we had hummus as part of the jello salad offerings in the 70's
