About Eat Well Embrace Life:

“Eat Well Embrace Life Hummus was founded in 2011 with a simple mission: to create premium products that celebrate the idea that good taste and eating well go hand in hand.

The parent company, Tryst Gourmet, was founded in 2007.

Made from the finest ingredients and with the greatest attention to detail, Eat Well Embrace Life has Americanized the hummus category by creating hummus from Other Beans. What makes us different and better is our commitment to product innovation, resulting in new, exciting flavors with the Wow! taste and healthy attributes you’ve come to expect.

Thanks to the groundswell of support we get from foodies like you, we’re the nation’s fastest growing hummus company today.

Greater than 90% of our product line is non-GMO, including our beans, tahini and oil. We do not make the claim for non-GMO status because some of the spices used in our toppings have not yet been certified non-GMO. We expect our products to qualify for non-GMO status in the near term and following the formal non-GMO certification process.”

My Thoughts:

All other details aside, this hummus selection was delectable. I loved trying each new flavor each deciphering the unique flavor profiles in each of them. There are many snack options out there, and I like how hummus is a healthy, convenient option amongst them. If I had to pick one, I’d say the Wasabi Edamame hummus was my favorite of the bunch. I am a sucker for that wasabi punch–I couldn’t gobble that one up quick enough. Instead of chips, I like to eat hummus with carrots. That way, I’m truly making it a healthy, nutrient packed snack/meal.

In regards to quality, I was hoping to see a bit more of an encouraging ingredient list. As you can read above, above 90% of the ingredients are non-gmo. While that sounds good, that’s the “best” part of the ingredients. None of them are organic. Such a bummer. I know of an organic hummus brand (that’s in my local store) that I can look to thus, this brand would not be my first choice if I’m looking for a healthy, great quality hummus.

Ingredients are tops to me. Regardless of how good something tastes, I won’t go back to it if I don’t believe in the ingredients. I look forward to when Eat Well Embrace Life starts using organic ingredients. At that point, I’d be on board with them.

  1. I like your products and wouldn’t want you to change a thing esp. hummus. I will continue to buy but fyi I almost broke a tooth on I’m assuming a piece of apricot pit in your yellow lentil hummus.

  2. Best hummus I have ever bought. I especially like Sriracha carrot and Beet with pickled beets. BJ’s used to carry Carrot one but not anymore and I can not find it anywhere.
