The big name around here is Sabra. I've had theirs, and I've had the varieties ALDI sells, maker unknown, and I've had others, and there was no detectable difference in taste or consistency with ANY of them. So I will buy whatever is the cheapest when I'm in the mood. There's no need to pay a premium for a known name.

what is the BEST store bought HUMMUS ?
my store only carries ONE BRAND
possibly because its not a BIG SELLER
a combination of ground cooked chickpeas sesame seeds olive oil and lemon
a person could make such a simple concoction in the blender at home and it would be "FRESH " ... FRESH would be BEST ... and probably CHEAPER can of chickpeas $ 1.19 sesame seeds $ 5 for 4 oz jar few tablespoon of olive oil a squeeze of lemon
SABRA has 60 % of the market of hummus sales in the USA
a USA based company which made 1 BILLION dollars in SALES in 2017

Sabara is the most popular and much better than other semi-popular brands. The trick I find is to open it with some olive oil and lemon juice. To ship and be shelf stable, they make it more concentrated than you would enjoy at an authentic restaurant.

Why bother? It's sort of like buying canned tea. Other than having tea when you're not at home and can't make it fresh, I think it's a waste of money and an additional source of pollution to buy the canned stuff. Humus is ridiculously simple to make and you can easily make large batches of different varieties that are better, much cheaper, and more healthful than what you buy.You can find lots of recipes on line and, no kidding, if you have a blender or food processor it takes about ten minutes.
