The 20 pack of single serving Kirkland Organic Hummus at Costco is a great item to buy if you have a little extra room in your refrigerator.
Let’s take a look at what you get with this box so you can decide if it needs to go into your shopping cart.
Is Costco Hummus Good?
I think these little cups of hummus are great!
The 2.5 ounce cups are the perfect size for a quick afternoon snack. I use ribs of celery to dip the hummus from the cups and I end up using three ribs per cup. The creaminess of the hummus pairs great with the crunch from the celery and they combine to make a very filling snack.
You could easily throw one of these cups into a lunch box along with some baby carrots or pita bread so you would have a fun treat to look forward to.
From a flavor standpoint this is a basic hummus recipe with chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, etc. You could dress this up with an extra squeeze of lemon juice, a dusting of smoked paprika or even a swirl of Green Dragon Hot Sauce.
Is the Hummus at Costco Healthy?
Each of the 20 cups of hummus is a single serving and has the following nutritional values:
- Calories: 170
- Fat: 13g (16% DV)
- Cholesterol: 0mg (0% DV)
- Sodium: 290mg (13% DV)
- Carbohydrates: 11g (4% DV)
- Protein: 4g
Overall this is a well balanced food that is a little high in calories.
I am watching my weight and counting calories these days so the 170 calories per serving had me concerned at first. What I finally figured out is that I get satisfied after eating about two thirds of the cup and I do not have to eat the whole thing if I don’t want to!
The hummus is Organic, Non GMO and Gluten Free.
Is the Hummus at Costco a Value?
I bought the 20 pack at Costco for $6.99 which works out to a cost of $0.35 per serving.
You can buy a six pack of single serve Sabra hummus at Target for $5.69 which works out to a cost of $0.95 per serving.
This means that you will save $0.60 per serving (63%) when you buy your hummus at Costco.
While this is a great deal it is also a LOT of hummus. It took me several weeks to work my way through this 20 pack so, unless you have a lot of mouths to feed, make sure that you have got the storage space in your refrigerator!
