Found this at Kroger this weekend.  I think they just started carrying it.
 
It has less carbs and calories then the normal brand I get, plus it comes in interesting flavors.

Discovered hummus for the first time on our cruise in Feb. We had it with pita chips. Where in Kroger did you find this? Diary or deli? Would be interested in different ways to serve it...

I'm not a chickpea fan, so typically not a Hummus fan.

hummus's main ingredient is chickpeas.

If it is made with something else, than it is not hummus. 
It might be like hummus, but it's not actually hummus.
Be like saying a veg. protein hot dog is a hot dog.
Not really since it isn't made of meat, it just looks like a hot dog.

Or you could say my wife's twin sister looks like her, so it could be said she is my wife and therefore I can sleep with her. Now that would go over good huh? (OK my wife doesn't have a sister let alone a twin).

But if it is made from soy, I might like it then.

So on the possibility this might be good I was searching on "alternate" forms of "hummus".
Ran into this blog, it's worth a smile if nothing else.

 I thought I was so breathtakingly brilliant in figuring out that if hummus were merely a puree of legumes, then peanut butter is really a peanut hummus because peanuts are legumes, and refried beans are a pinto bean hummus because beans are legumes, too! And though edamameyoung soybeans, are not beans as many of us would mistakenly believe since it has the word “bean” in the name, but oilseeds, they are still legumes, which made them candidates for said “puree of legumes.” I was so smug in my clever sleuthing and deductive prowess. Smug smug smug.

*shakes head* How wrong I was. How wrong we all were. Utterly utterly wrong. It is all…a myth.

Well, good thing I am here to dispel that myth! “Hummus” does not, in fact, mean “puree of,” which is what we uneducated folk might have thought it was. The word “hummus” is Arabic for “chickpea” (or garbanzo bean or ceci bean or chana), so technically, hummus is always made from chickpeas. That certainly deserves to be repeated.

Hummus is always made from chickpeas!

I got introduced to hummus a couple of years ago and love it.  Since the chickpeas are complex carbs, they are not too bad.  The olive oil (or whatever oil is used) that bumps the calories up. 

I like edamame, so I plan to try the edamame "puree".

I am still lol.

When I looked at this thread, I would have sworn it said for those who like humans.   Even after reading the first comment I couldn't figure out what Kroger had to do with liking humans.
