Holy Moly launches new hummus range.
We love Holy Moly's avocado dips but now they've added hummus to the range. As always, these two new varieties (original hummus and pesto hummus) are both vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and contain no artificial preservatives. and housed in fully recyclable packaging. The original is creamy with a hint of crushed garlic, thanks to its mix of chickpeas and tahini. Whilst the pesto combines traditional hummus with vegan basil pesto, making it the perfect addition to a slice of chunky gluten-free bread. Both are utterly delicious but the pesto is our favourite.
Holy Moly Original Hummus (£2.75) and Holy Moly Pesto Humus (£2.75) are available from Waitrose and www.waitrose.com.
