Trader Joe's Sriracha Hummus


Well well well, doesn't this look familiar?




A relatively new, SPICY hummus! For the record, TJ's does have another spicy hummus dip (which is pretty tasty but forgettable. Also, the container has a bump in the middle, which means they used less product but it makes me think there's less product), but when you bring in that dragon and that swirly exotic font? Didn't even need to think about it before tossing it into my basket. 


And it still costs $1.99 like most of the TJ's hummus dips. Yes. 


It's a bit more orange in person, but not as orange as it is in the last picture. 


They did use actual "sriracha sauce" in here, but there's no way to tell whether or not they used the gold standard. I'm suspecting it wasn't the gold standard. I actually quite like this hummus. It still has the creamy texture and a nice tahini flavor that shines through despite the kick. Unlike other srirarcha hummus dips I've tried, this one has the sriracha-ish flavor evenly distributed through the whole product. And yes, this is ACTUALLY spicy. Not nearly as spicy as the sriracha ranch but spicy enough where I thought they had used cayenne instead of actual sriracha. I actually had to slow down at one point because it was getting too spicy.  I'm seriously wondering if I would get the same results if I took my own sriracha and mixed it into a tub of hummus. Not much acidic/sour notes. I do wish there was some lemon or something else to give this hummus a certain brightness but that hasn't stopped me from using this as my go-to. 


I spread this on just about anything I could get my hands on. Toast. Crackers. Carrots. All things that A doesn't really care to eat. More for me. 

TL;DR: Trader Joe's Sriracha Hummus. New favorite TJs hummus, hello! Spicy the way I like it! 8 out of 10.

Trader Joe's Matcha Green Tea

Dear reader, you may notice in the coming days that there are changes coming to this blog. Not nearly as dramatic, controversial, or dlfjepotigfjad;lkgjadsf (for my readers not as fluent in internet speak, that was a keyboard pound of frustration) as say, the government, but changes nonetheless. Mostly because there is coming a day where I will not live within a stone's throw of a Trader Joe's store. A sad sad day. But probably a good day for my wallet. :P 

Trader Joe's Sliced French Brioche

"THIS IS LIKE CRACK." No it's not (but it certainly could be), but A says that's how I tend to overhype stuff. The funny thing is that I know I overhype a lot of things, so I actually try not to overhype it. Because I don't want to proclaim, "THIS IS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER TASTED" about everything I try. But sometimes I can't help it, and the overhype spills out. Anyway, this is my meager attempt at NOT overhyping this bread (because it is pretty good actually and you should give it a try but I'm trying to restrain myself). 

Trader Joe's Umami and Ginger Paste

I'm a big fan of the condiment section at TJ's, not because everything is ridiculously good but you can really find some hidden gems and get a good bang for your buck. ;D 
I cannot vouch for all of the spices and condiments - like salt, soy sauce, sriracha (no I haven't tried TJ's brand sriracha) I would buy elsewhere. However, because most of the spices have the same $1.99 flat price, you can get decent deals on things like curry powder, turmeric, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon sticks, and ground ginger.
