I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Skinnygirl. I received a product sample and a promotional item to facilitate my review.
Ever since going to college in Boulder, I have been a hummus fan. Back then, only “crunchy” and hyper fit/natural people ate hummus. You know the type — basically modern day hippies. But a friend introduced me to hummus sandwiches and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Nowadays, hummus has really gone mainstream. Thank goodness! But while I love the healthy deliciousness of hummus, I don’t love all of the calories. When Skinnygirl asked if I’d like to try out their new hummus, I was thrilled. Could it actually taste good and have less calories? The simple answer is YES!
If you haven’t heard about Skinnygirl yet, they’re best known for delicious low-calorie cocktails. But the company has recently expanded its portfolio to include non-alcoholic beverages, snacks and microwave popcorn. I was sent the Skinnygirl Roasted Red Hummus, but it also comes in Classic, Cilantra Jalapeno and Roasted Garlic.
My Husband Ate the Skinnygirl Hummus
When the hummus arrived, I didn’t think twice about putting it into the fridge. However, I should have marked it mine because the very next day I discovered my hubby sitting at the kitchen table chowing down on my Skinnygirl Hummus with the Pita Chips I have specifically bought to complete the experience. With a chock-full chip halfway to his mouth, I asked if he was aware that he was eating my reduced calorie hummus. Initially I got a blank stare. Then he hesitantly asked me, “Do you wanna try?”
Sighing, I figured I would never be able to beat him so I may as well join him. I sat down and taste tested this new hummus. I wasn’t sure what to expect considering Skinnygirl Hummus is made with non-fat Greek yogurt, is reduced calorie, all-natural, gluten-free and kosher. That’s a mouthful in more ways than one! But honestly neither my husband nor I missed the calories. The roasted red hummus had some serious zing to it. And coupled with the pita chips made a terrific afternoon snack.
All Is Forgiven + Skinnygirl Coupon
The fact that my husband didn’t even notice he was eating something reduced calorie speaks volumes. I wouldn’t hesitate to serve this to the whole family as a wonderful way to appease those munchies or even serve it up at the next football party. Next time, however, I’ll be sure to mark at least one package mine!
And because I love being able to share such goodness, grab this $0.75 Walmart coupon off of Skinnygirl Hummus and try it out for yourself! To learn more about Skinnygirl, visit their website at http://skinnygirlfresh.com/
