When Roots told me they would be sending me a sample of their hummus in exchange for a review, I expected a small sampling of a couple of their hummus, in no way did I expect this swag bag…
Which, in addition to the t-shirt, tank top, hat, cooler, several coupons, stickers and magnets, also contained 9 – yes, I said 9 – of some of the most flavorful and freshest hummus I have had (and nope – Roots did not pay me to say that)!
Being the food lover and equality-in-tasting advocate I am, I had to taste them ALL and they blew me away, specially the Hot Chipotle Hummus and the Thai Coconut Curry Hummus. Roots says they use over 70% organic ingredients and it shows – this hummus was fresher than homemade!
Since my daughter had been asking me for some savory scones for breakfast, I figured I would incorporate some of Roots Roasted Garlic Hummus into a scone.
When I went into a bakery this weekend, I was delighted and shocked; delighted to find nutritional info on all the bakery items (I don’t eat out much so this was my first time running into this), and shocked to see that scones fared pretty badly on the nutritional scale.
These scones, however, are not the scones at the bakery – I left out the butter, and substituted white flour with whole grain brown rice flour and added a hefty helping of Roots hummus to churn out these delectable and healthy, “yes-you-may-have-another-and-another”, pillows of bliss!
I have 5 coupons for a FREE Roots Hummus container and I feel every one (or at least 5 of yall) should let your taste buds be carried away (Roots is to taste buds what Calgon is to baths) – so, I will mail 5 of yall a coupon for a container of Roots hummus, if you would be so kind as to leave me a comment as to what non traditional way you plan on eating-or have eaten hummus. The quirkiest five will be the recipients of said coupons. This isn’t a sponsored giveaway – just a self hosted “spread the taste” giveaway. Roots can be found at Whole Foods, Ingles, Earth Fare and other specialty stores.
