Sitting in our common room and drinking tea (black), just had lunch sponsored by Aldi so I thought I’d review the hummus I bought there.
We all know what hummus is, well probably the three cheapest hummuses I was able to get were Lidl, Asda, and Aldi own-brand. This time I’m obviously having wonky carrots with Aldi hummus. Aldi hummus (reduced fat) is much more garlic-y than Asda, but you can also taste the chickpeas. The garlic hits you first, then the chickpeas, slightly bitter chickpea flavour, but not bitter-bitter. It’s a good hummus.
Well, at least compared with Asda (reduced fat) hummus, Aldi wins. Asda isn’t bad, but this doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste like cardboard hummus. I.e. imagine you made hummus but replaced chickpeas with cardboard, and probably did so with every other ingredient. Asda hummus is still good because (a) it’s hummus and (b) it’s cheap, but if I were to choose, I’d choose Aldi.
Lidl hummus is also an alright hummus. I haven’t had it in a while but I don’t have terrible memories about that hummus, so I’m assuming it’s not terrible. It’s also cheap because it’s from Lidl, and it’s a hummus because it’s a hummus.
In summary, all three hummuses are pretty good to have with your wonky carrots.
