“Six years ago, Hinsdale, Ill., company Plocky’s introduced three varieties of flavored, gluten-free hummus chips (in best-selling Original, Roasted Garlic and Roasted Red Pepper) made from real hummus and olive oil. With interest picking up over the years, the company has recently added two new flavors: Greek Lemon & Herb and Honey Caramelized Onion.
Further benefitting this product in the health market is that each chip has only six calories. “We have one customer who comes every day for the Plocky’s Hummus chips, like clockwork,” says Diane Dean, manager at The Epicure Market in Miami. “These types of chips are making a difference with consumers because they are different and can be healthier.”
