    Sabra hummus is pretty decent, and is distributed all over the U.S.

    Not all of the Trader Joe's hummuses are any good, but I like their
    plain organic hummus.

    My impression of the other widely distributed brands (Oasis, Rachel's,
    Wildwood) is that they are only okay.

    I make my own with canned Garbanzos and, if I may say so, it's not bad
    at all, especially a Mexican variety using lime instead of lemon juice.

    TJ's has one they called Middle Eastern, and the seasonings in it aren't
    bad at all - it's my current store-bought favorite.

    Think making some without a blender would work? Just mashed. I wonder if a
    manual hand blender would work?
    What do you put in yours? I'm interested in making mine low fat and low
    calorie but high in taste.

    Just was at Kroger and the only hommos on sale was Athenos. I've decided
    not to buy theirs anymore, even if it is on sale and half the price.

    Its so easy to make that I never buy it pre-made. My current favorite is
    adding roasted red peppers.

    Hummus has been around for a few centuries. The electric blender,
    not. Duh.

    There were ways to power-grind stuff, before electricity. Waterwheels,
    camel-driven mills, etc.

    I don't know what a hand blender is, but potato ricer might work

    Imagine wanting to make hummus and having to wait until that second
    rock was formed? Those old timers had real patience.

    It's scary but it never crossed my mind to consider what ancient people did
    before blenders, food processors, etc. And then a few of them answered
    here!

    Thanks. I will go find some rocks in the park. Some free-range ones that
    are organic.

    All of European cooking began before electricity. Every prep task in
    the kitchen had to be done by hand. Mixing big batches of bread dough
    (without packaged yeast), grinding meat for sausage, whipping egg
    whites for pastry ... I would never have succeeded.
