WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Have lunch or dinner plans for May 15th? Cancel them. Sabra Dipping Company, LLC (www.sabra.com) plans to thrill hummus lovers and newbies alike with plenty of reasons to eat the delicious dip and spread. Sabra will help fans celebrate National Hummus Day, which takes place on the third Thursday in May, with the launch of Hummus for Dummies, a print- and e-book designed to help food lovers discover the rich culinary history of hummus and dip into the global favorite. Free product giveaways, sampling trucks and social media promotions will help make it a #HummusDay to remember. For the more than one-quarter of Americans who have become hummus fans in the past decade, the day is full of plenty of reasons to eat more of it.
"We celebrate hummus every day here at Sabra, but National Hummus Day represents the perfect opportunity to bring people together as only great food can," said Greg Greene, Director of Marketing at Sabra. "One of our favorite ways to enjoy hummus is to share it with someone new – or to talk with current users about delicious ways to dip and spread. Hummus for Dummies was created to do just that. We believe that there is nothing better than enjoying great food with friends and family, and Hummus Day is a great excuse to do just that."
