7. Basil Pesto
Speaking of pesto, this basil pesto number was a major dark horse in these rankings. I had never had it, and I wasn't expecting much. It really delivers that unmistakable basil-y, pesto-y flavor that really doesn't have another name. And it has a really light, citrusy aftertaste that clears your palate. The only downside is that this one looks kinda gross, like somebody plopped a handful of soil into the middle of the hummus. But hey, just close your eyes and open your mouth. That's generally good life advice, right?
The best flavors of hummus are the ones that stick a spicy core in the middle of that smooth, classic garbanzo flavor profile. The Jalapeño flavor definitely delivers a kick to your taste balls -- or taste buds, as they are more commonly called -- but here's where it falters: the jalapeños come in big chunks. So if you're one of those people who DOES NOT like to keep your additives and your hummus separated like kids on a middle-school dance floor, you're going to have a tough time blending this ish together. You get big bursts of spicy. Then you get big globs of hummus. But it's hard to get the two to coalesce.
