  1. Not sure who the hummus stuff is for. Those of us who make our own know how easy it is to toss some tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin and salt in with the beans in the food processor. The buy it off the shelf already made crowd probably isn’t going to be interested in the extra step of blending it.

    1. It’s probably just a single use pack of seasoned tahini. Which is actually a brilliant idea since some people only eat hummus on occasion and a whole jar of tahini tends to get funny if it sits too long.

  2. Where did you find the Nekot Lemon Creme? A little trivia. Did you know that Nekot got it’s name from spelling it’s major competitor, Token, backwards. That was back in the 1950’s.

  3. The Ragu sauce is very good. Hoping I can find the other 2 varieties soon, Italian Sausage with Cheese and Sautéed Onions and Beef
