First into the tank is Makenzie Marzluff of Delighted by Hummus, seeking $600,000 for 12 percent equity.

Delighted by Hummus offers delicious, chickpea-based dessert spreads. According to their website, the usual garlic and lemon of hummus are replaced with cinnamon and vanilla beans. Their mission “is to inspire people to spread their glitter” and “be the light they are out in the world.” Flavors include vanilla bean, snickerdoodle, choc-o-mint and brownie batter, which are all vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and all natural. The hummus is not currently available to purchase online, however, the dessert spreads are available in stores nationwide.

The sharks all agree that it’s delicious but Mark Cuban thinks it’s challenging that it doesn’t exactly compete with hummus. In the 13 months since they hit store shelves, they have done $1 million in gross sales. Guest shark Alex Rodriguez finds the valuation too high and goes out.
