I like hummus but I’m too lazy to make it. One day, one day, I’m going to make my own but for the time being I’m going to have to settle for the store bought stuff. Having said that, I like to keep my options open and try different brands. Lo and behold, a brand I’ve never heard of: Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach.

A friend recommended the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail line after she found it at a local health food store. So, I went and got one to try too. There were a number of different flavours and I chose the Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach. Why? Can you see me making artichoke at home?

Exactly.


Product Review: What ingredients are in the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach?

Take a good look at the ingredients in the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach: chickpeas, water, tahini (sesame butter), canola oil, artichokes, spinach, lemon juice concentrate, sea salt, vinegar, olive oil, caper puree (capers, salt, vinegar), garlic juice (garlic juice, salt), garlic, onion, spices

I like the ingredient list. Although there are a number of ingredients that went into the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach, I recognize all of them. Perhaps the only thing that doesn’t sit as well is the use of both canola oil and olive oil. I’m not a big fan of canola oil so I would have preferred to see only olive oil on that label.

Oh well, can’t win them all.


Product Review: How does the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach taste?

Given that I’m the only one that likes hummus, I was the only one in the family that tested the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach.

Open the container and it looks good. I’m not too sure about the red stuff that’s on top of the dip. I took another look at the ingredient list and can’t seem to figure out what could be red so I guess it falls under the ‘spices’ category. Paprika, maybe? I have no clue.

Now, for taste. Over the past few days, I put the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach on to toast and pita bread and the results were pretty good.

The Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach has a smooth taste. It’s easy, it tastes like hummus and there’s a bit of a tart kick to it which might be from the artichokes or the caper puree. I can’t quite taste the spinach though so not sure if there’s any purpose in having it in there. Overall, I’d say the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach is pretty tasty.


Verdict:

The one thing I really like about the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach is the price. Compared to the regular price of some of other brands of hummus that I’ve seen in the stores, the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach is much more reasonably priced. I like the taste despite the use of canola oil.

Would I buy the Fontaine Sante Hummus Cocktail Humm! with roasted artichoke and spinach again? Yeah, I think so. I like the taste and that it’s not made with a bunch of odd preservatives. Sure, I’m not a big fan of canola oil but overall, the ingredients are decent. I’m curious to taste some of their other flavours and see how they compare.

I’ll need to grab my pal and go for another walk!
