I can’t perfectly relate the sound my husband Brian made when he first tasted the Spicy Red Pepper Hummus that Tribe sent to us, but it was a good sound. It was similar to “mmmmm good” but the “mmmmm” was a little different — a good different. Good enough that dinner never got made last night because he ate almost the entire container of hummus and 3/4 of a bag of pita chips.
Tribe Origins is a new, all-natural line of hummus offered by Tribe, a company that was already making natural and organic hummus products. The Origins line contains four varieties: Original, Spicy Red Pepper, Zesty Garlic & Herb and Tomato and Veggie. We were sent a sample of each variety, and they are all delicious.
On Friday night, I pulled out the Original and the Zesty Garlic for our friends. Their 2-year-old daughter ended up making a meal out of carrots dipped in the Tribe Origins Original Hummus. My friend and I enjoyed the Zesty Garlic.
Yesterday, I opened the other two varieties and decided to take the Spicy Red Pepper into the living room while we were watching a movie. That’s when Brian got a hold of it, and the dinner I had planned flew out the window.
I usually buy my hummus from the hummus bar at the local grocery store, and I had never tried any of Tribe’s hummus varieties before. I really enjoyed everything we were sent. I also like that the packaging for the Tribe Origins is easily recycled. The containers are a #1 plastic, PETE, a type of plastic that is commonly accepted in community and curbside recycling programs.
Here are a few details from about Tribe Origins that they’d like you to know.
- Free of any artificial preservatives, artificial flavors, hydrogenated oils, stabilizers, thickeners
