You know, I almost can’t resist the urge to try a dip even if it comes from a company that I’ve already tested before and have mixed feelings about. It’s like I have this hope that the next one will be different or that maybe I’ll discover a completely new gastronomical experience.

What can I say? This is why I run a product review site, after all. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to post daily on ThingsThatWeDo.com!

Well, let’s have another go at another Sabra hummus dip, shall we? I’ve reviewed a few of their other products before with mixed results. This time, I decided on the Sabra Roasted Pine Nut Hummus. I usually like roasted pine nuts so let’s hope they don’t disappoint.


Product Review: What ingredients are in the Sabra Roasted Pine Nut Hummus?

Here are the ingredients that went into making the Sabra Roasted Pine Nut hummus: Cooked chickpeas (chickpeas [garbanzos], water), tahini (ground sesame), soybean oil, garlic, salt, citric acid, red bell pepper, pine nuts, potassium sorbate added to maintain freshness, spices.

My thoughts? It’s a decent list, nothing overly atrocious minus the soybean oil and use of potassium sorbate. There are plenty of other dips out there that have a much crazier list of ingredients so the Sabra Roasted Pine Nut hummus fares quite well, all things considered.


Product Review: How does the Sabra Roasted Pine Nut hummus taste?

Open the container of Sabra Roasted Pine Nut hummus and it looks really promising. Whole pine nuts just sitting there waiting for me to devour. I spread it on to toast and take a bite.

Well, it definitely tastes like hummus with some pine nuts. Can I taste the pine nuts? I’m not sure. The use of pine nuts adds some texture to the hummus but I can’t decide if it’s a plus or minus. The Sabra Roasted Pine Nut hummus kind of just tastes like your average run of the mill dip. I’m not doing twirly swirly flips and I don’t see any happy rainbows. It’s a bit salty for my taste buds and I think it could have used a bit more tartness.

Huh.


Verdict:

Okay, I think I need to learn my lesson and give the Sabra dips a rest. They’re just not working out for me. I’ve like a few in the past but most seem to be duds. Why go back when I’ve got so many other options out there? The world of dips is ENDLESS! I like dips but some dips just aren’t worth trying anymore.

Gosh, that sounds harsh but sadly, it’s true.
