As a person with celiac disease, I’ve resigned myself to having very limited choices of convenience/snack food that I don’t make and pack myself. I wistfully look at the choices on the shelves and in the refrigerator section of my family’s favorite stop-n-go filling station. Sometimes I end up with tortilla chips or some other packaged gluten-free salty snack because there’s really no other safe choice. And let’s face it, I don’t really need to stare down the bottom of another chip bag.
Imagine my delight to find Boar’s Head pairing their traditional and roasted red pepper hummuses (or is that hummi?) with gluten-free pretzels! They didn’t have to do that, but they did! And I daresay, the gluten-eaters among us will not be able to quibble. The pretzels were delightful and crunchy despite being chilled. The hummus is smooth and creamy (and appropriately chilled). I prefer the Traditional Hummus, but the Roasted Red Pepper was good too (just a little messier.) I eat a lot of hummus, and this is just the kind of snack I want on hand. The pretzel feels appropriately snack-y enough and the hummus pulls me back to the land of the healthy. Also, if you prefer non-GMO verified foods, you’ll be happy to know that the Boar’s Head hummus fits the bill.
You don’t have to stick to the grab-and-go packages only. Boar’s Head also sells the hummus by itself without the pretzels. Just open, dip in your favorite hummus companion and enjoy! The gluten-free hummus comes in 5 varieties:
