Chickpea & Lentil

Food Should Taste Good Hummus

We’re all in favor of making hummus from scratch, but when time is at a premium, we have no qualms about picking up a container of Food Should Taste Good-brand hummus. This spring, the company launched a line of six hummus flavors featuring various beans and legumes. Our favorite, the classic chickpea, is our latest go-to snack that tastes great scooped up with pita, chips or carrot sticks. $4.49. All metro-Atlanta area Kroger locations.
