Aldi Shoppers Are Raving About These Dessert Hummus Holiday Flavors

Aldi has a bunch of hummus options available for those who like a variety of dips. And what better time to serve dip than a holiday party? But Aldi being Aldi, this is not your run of the mill, savory roasted red pepper or garlic hummus. No, this is a unique twist on the scoop-able snack: Dessert Hummus — a blend of sweet and savory flavors that can be slathered on everything from graham crackers to pretzels.

Redditors have offered mixed reviews on Aldi's chocolate flavored Dessert Hummus in the past. One wrote that they enjoyed the product because it tasted like "cold brownie batter," while another commenter had the decidedly opposite reaction, calling it "foul" and "sickly sweet." 

According to the Instagram account, Aldi Favorite Finds, Dessert Hummus by Aldi's Park Street Deli brand is back at everyone's favorite discount grocer, boasting some festive flavor options including chocolate mint and sugar cookie — and this time around, the reviews are mostly glowing. 

Fans are hooked on the dessert hummus at Aldi

The latest update from Aldi Favorite Finds has prompted many commenters to talk about their experiences with the Park Street Deli seasonal Dessert Hummus, which is both gluten-free and vegan, according to the official Aldi website. One satisfied customer wrote, "Yes!! I was hoping to see these flavors soon!! I love their dessert hummus." A couple of curious Instagram users wondered how to eat the sweet hummus products: some of the suggestions included vanilla wafers, pretzels, and graham crackers. Others inquired about the ingredients, particularly whether the base ingredient for dessert hummus is the same as most other hummus: chickpeas. The answer is yes. 

A fan had a handy suggestion for those who are curious to try the sugar cookie variant, writing that "any fruit dipped in [it] is incredible." There was, however, at least one detractor who remained unimpressed: "As a middle eastern I condemn this mockery of hummus," the critic wrote, adding several crying emojis to their comment. Others remained excited, though, particularly for the sugar cookie version, which got way more excited shout-outs than the chocolate mint.
