In fact, according to Mintel’s 2022 Dips and Savory Spreads report, 31% of Americans purchased hummus in the past six months, and consumers are most likely to perceive hummus as healthy, over any other type of dip. Fresh Cravings’ unique variations in flavor provide the opportunity for creative and health-conscious snacking along with recipe building. This year for National Hummus Day, Registered Dietitian Mia Syn created recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner using a variety of Fresh Cravings’ Hummus flavors. For example, her breakfast sweet potato toast is topped with Fresh Cravings Honey Jalapeño Hummus, chickpeas, radishes and sliced jalapeño, or it can be made with Fresh Cravings Spicy Red Pepper Hummus, cucumber, tomato, feta, and olive.

Fresh Cravings Hummus is made with Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil, an ingredient that is unique to the brand and delivers a smooth flavor and texture, which has led to the brand’s double-blind taste test panel wins against the national category leader. This announcement comes off the heels of Fresh Cravings’ recent debut of new packaging and hummus flavors in March, which added Fresh Cravings Everything Bagel, Honey Jalapeño, and Spicy Red Pepper Hummus to the brand’s three beloved flavors: Roasted Red Pepper, Classic, and Roasted Garlic.
