Dessert Hummus
by Keleigh May on September 29th, 2016

When I walked past the delighted by booth at Expo East last week, I was utterly shocked. Dessert?? HUMMUS?? HUH? My first thought was "Ok, locate the trash can so if I need to spit this out I can do so and quickly." I should also mention that I am not a fan of traditional hummus, so count me as doubly suspicious. I took a bite and braced for the worse- but what I tasted was velvety, rich, chocolate goodness. WHAT?! This decadent dessert is made from chick peas?! Mind Blown. I then proceeded to try each and every flavor (Brownie Batter, Snickerdoodle, Orange-Dreamsicle and Vanilla Bean), all of which were all equally delicious as the first.   

So what's in Dessert Hummus?

First, I'll start with what's not in it-delighted by dessert hummus is free of gluten, wheat, soy, dairy, eggs and nuts. Only ingredients like, ​garbanzo beans, organic turbinado sugar, pure vanilla extract, coconut milk, sesame tahini and coconut sugar make it to this delightful treat. How did delighted by dessert hummus come to be? Well, it all stared when founder Makenzie Marzluff started bringing her sweet concoction to parties back in 2014. Makenzie then decided it was time to  "share her glitter with the world" so she quit her job and delighted by was born. 

A marriage made in snack heaven. 

Though I seriously considered eating this entire container by myself, I decided I would be a really, really kind person and share. But what to serve my delicious dip with? Certainly fresh fruit, pound cake or just a spoon would all be good choices, but mysupercookies seemed to be the superior choice for me (for more on mysupercookies check out my post from yesterday here). Man, oh man, was it amazing.
Random Thought:
Any kid of the 90's will remember Dunkaroo's- well serving these 2 together in the same container would be a much healthier, superior tasting and overall better combo. So please, dessertby and mysupercookies can we make that happen? Our children's lunchboxes (and my stomach) would be eternally grateful. Thank you ever so much. 

​Think dessert hummus sounds to bizarre to actually be edible? Well check out the video below to find out what my friends and family thought of not only the Brownie Batter Hummus, but the mysupercookies too. 

Random fact: I made one my bestest buddies Owen (he's 9- what's 22 years between friends?!) try chips made with cricket flour earlier this week- and he's still a little suspicious of anything I want him to try.
Pardon some of my mumblings in the video- here are the exact ingredients of the dessert hummus. delighted by is expected to be in retailers in the southeast very, very soon- in the mean time, check out more about them here. 
Why were we talking about Baobab? It's in mysupercookies!
Random note: The Baobab tree is what Rafiki lives in in the Lion King.
mysupercookies are located at retailers all around the country, to find out more, click here
Think that a vegan, low sugar, super food, delicious dessert is as realistic as a flying mystical unicorn? Well thanks to delighted by and mysupercookies,
where there's a meal, there's a way!
