Cocoa-flavored dessert hummus was one of several chocolate/cocoa-flavored surprises at this year’s the Summer Fancy Food Show. This discovery underscores consumers’ unflagging desire for chocolatey confections and snacks.
Delighted by Hummus founder Makenzie Marzluff created this treat several years ago as a snack for a Super Bowl party. She swapped out the traditional garlic and lemon for ingredients such as cinnamon, cocoa and vanilla. Guests found her snack so tasty that they thought it was cookie dough. Encouraged to take the product to market, Marzluff starting selling it at her local Phoenix farmers market. Again consumer acceptance of the rather unconventional product was conclusive: her supply would sell out in an hour. Her goal now is to be the first “dessert hummus” to hit national grocery shelves.
For a veteran tread spotter, it is always exhilarating when one discovers a whole new product segment; in this case, dessert hummus. And even more endearing, it was created not in a sterile big food R&D lab, but whipped together by a creative millennial as a snack offering for a friend’s Super Bowl party.
Cocoa-flavored dessert hummus, creative caramels and hippy truffles were some of the new trends in confectionery and snack products exhibited at the 2016 Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City.
