Here will compare the extremely popular Sabra hummus brand to the relatively new Good & Gather brand found at Target stores. There was one clear winner in our taste test, but you will pay a premium for this hummus in comparison to the other brand.
Sabra vs Good & Gather Hummus
Sabra was the clear winner in our taste test. It was pleasantly thicker and smoother than the grainier Good & Gather hummus. Sabra tasted much more like homemade hummus compared to the store-bought flavor of Good & Gather. Good & Gather had a strong lemon taste that was a bit overpowering for us with a slightly artificial taste. It was almost like the lemon flavor was included to potentially mask the taste of other unfavorable ingredients.
Overall, Sabra is the superior hummus with a nice balance of chickpeas and tahini that goes down smooth. Generally, you will pay over $1.25 more for Sabra vs. Good & Gather (see the price section below). We don’t always say this when comparing a store brand to a name brand but Sabra is worth the extra cost.
Sabara (pictured left) features a slightly darker tan color compared to Good & Gather (pictured right). The texture of the Sabara hummus was slightly thicker compared to the Good & Gather. You can somewhat tell by the photos that Good & Gather has a grainier texture.
We purchased both of these products at Target. The Sabra hummus cost us $3.99 for a 10-ounce container. We paid $2.99 for the Good & Gather hummus of the same size. Since Good & Gather is a store brand (see the ownership section below), it can only be purchased at Target. However, Sabra is available at a variety of grocery stores.
Here are some examples of prices we found for Sabra Classic Hummus outside of Target. The lowest price we found out of the stores listed was $2.99 with the highest price being $5.49. Generally, you will pay a premium for Sabra compared to Good & Gather.
