When we first heard about the hummus-flavored Tic Tac candies promised for Yom Ha’atzmaut, we were a bit suspicious. It sounded too bizarre to be true. We wanted to wait to publish until we found corroborating evidence.

It turns out we were right to be suspicious. The announcement came on March 31, which was April Fools Day on the Israeli clock.

So, no hummus Tic Tacs. At least not this year.

We’re able to report, however, the latest incarnation of America’s growing infatuation with hummus: Snyder’s of Hanover is now offering “Classic Hummus Filled Pretzel Sandwiches” in our local New Jersey grocery aisles.

It’s like Yom Ha’atzmaut every day, in a bag.
