Food Review: Lilly's Hummus

Four flavors of Lilly's Hummus - Roasted Garlic, Roasted
Jalapeno, Smoked Tomato and Basil, Kalamata Olive with
some pita bread (devoured after this photo!)

The good folks over at the Oregon-based Lilly's Hummus contacted me about reviewing some of their hummus and I gleefully accepted (I am a hummus addict)...little did I know that these generous folks would be sending me full tubs of seven varieties of their lip-smackin' hummus!

I received the hummus about a week ago and have been snacking on all the flavors for the past week. If this proves anything, it's that I don't get sick of hummus, like, ever!! I received all their flavors (except the Cracked Black Pepper), which are:

  • Plain (Original)
  • Smoked Tomato and Basil
  • Roasted Garlic
  • Roasted Jalapeno
  • Kalamata Olive
  • Roasted Red Pepper
  • Black Bean Hummus

Lilly's Hummus uses fresh, organic, and locally-sourced ingredients to make their delectable hummus. Their hummus has a rustic, homemade quality that you just don't get with mass-produced hummus. Lilly's has more texture and natural flavor than regular store-bought hummus and the quality of ingredients really shines through!

I enjoyed all their flavors, but I did have a few favorites. I fell head-over-heels in love with their Smoked Tomato and Basil Hummus! The smoky tomato flavor combined with the crisp taste of basil had me coming back for more...and more. In fact, I'm pretty sure that I inhaled half the tub before forcing myself to stop!

I also loved the Roasted Garlic, Roasted Jalapeno and Kalamata Olive flavors. I liked that the flavors never felt overpowering or processed, instead they tasted subtle and natural. Lilly's never uses fillers, imitation flavors or hydrogenated oils, and I think that really shows in the final product!

Lilly's Hummus cares about their product and consumers - which is evident from the final, delicious product! I also like that this company uses locally-sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible, doesn't use preservatives or weird ingredients in their hummus, and is an eco-friendly company, recycling and composting at their facility whenever possible.

I would definitely buy Lilly's Hummus and wholeheartedly recommend it! Next time I am out I plan on seeing if my local health food store, Mother's Market, has any in stock.

Lilly's Hummus is sold at select natural/health food stores...for locations of those in your area and for more info on Lilly's, check their website!




  2. I absolutly HATE her hummus. I like Sabra's pine nut, avacoado and other flavors, but Lilly's Hummus is really not good whatsoever. It does not taste like the hummus one finds in the middle east at all.

  3. This hummus is so weird.. There is no tahini in it or something. Eating the Roasted Red Pepper right now and its like gross baby food.

  4. Lilly's hummus I am not a fan of your hummus. Yet I am a huge fan of hummus, generally. I make rather fantastic hummus but buy it for convenience, as well
    Your hummus tastes like it is watered down. Lacks flavor and ends up with the oddist consistency.

  5. I went online to see comments about Lilly's since I just bought some of the Roasted Red Pepper. I picked it up since it was in the vegan section, had low sodium and was not mass produced. Upon opening it and peeling back the plastic seal, I had to pour out water that had separated. The hummus was in the shape of the round container, but there was a circular gap between the hummus and the interior of the container - so I knew it wasn't going to be creamy. It was also odd that it's August 19, 2018 and the "best by" date is in January 6, 2019 - most fresh hummus have best by dates in less than a month, but I'm no expert on that. Creamy or not, it definitely lacked taste. Unfortunately, I'd opt for the mass produced brands after this.
