Trader Joe's has done it again! One of our favorite food retailers launched a chocolate hummus to help us beat those pesky sugar cravings. And based on the feedback it's getting on Instagram, we're betting it's flying off the shelves.

This dessert hummus has only 50 calories per serving, 1.5 g fat, 9g carbs, 2g protein, 1g sugar and 2g fiber. The ingredient list is pretty short, listing cooked chickpeas, cane sugar, water, cocoa, canola oil, sea salt, tahini, natural flavor and nisin (which is a mold inhibitor). We aren't a huge fan of the undisclosed "natural flavor," but we'll let it slide since it's a much healthier choice than other desserts out there.

The company advises pairing their new sweet hummus with sliced apples, freeze-dried strawberries, banana chips, pretzel sticks or graham crackers—all of which sound delicious. We are thinking of forgoing our next cheese board in favor of this sweet dessert hummus board idea!

If your local TJ's has already ran out and has yet to restock, try out this amazing Dark Chocolate Hummus in the meantime—it's rich in flavor, but not in saturated fat or sugar, thanks to creamy chickpeas and naturally sweet dark chocolate. Best part? It's ready in 10 minutes or less. Happy snacking!
