Hummus On The Shelf

I spotted this product at the store and wasn't quite sure if I wanted to try it or not. Shelf stable hummus that you mix up yourself-"fresh hummus on demand"as the package states?
 It finally got the best of me and my curiosity won out.  I purchased the hummus but it sat on my shelf for awhile.  I was waiting for a 'hummus emergency'. I usually buy fresh hummus or make my own but if I ran out, I'd have my back up.  The emergency came and I opened the package. It comes with pureed chickpeas, tahini, spices and a little wooden stirrer.  You mix it all up in the container that it comes in.
 I bought the traditional style but it come in a few other flavors as well.  It does need to be refrigerated after you mix it up and lasts about a week in the fridge.
The verdict, it's good in an emergency but I don't think I'd buy it on a regular basis.  The taste was fine but not as good as fresh or homemade hummus and the price was a little higher for the convenience.    Have you tried it?

I've never seen this. Looks good if you're in a tight spot but I'm with you, I don't think it would replace homemade! I love it too much!

That's good to know. While I do love hummus I don't know I've ever had an emergency, so I'll leave this product alone. Besides I tend to eat more than my fare share of it and it does, ummm, bad things to me. I also want you to know I read every single food and beverage post this morning, but didn't comment on each of them. We had coffee together and I might have to have a second cup to finish reading.
