We hate to start the week off on a bad note, but those in the know are predicting a global hummus shortage.
Bad weather and the war in Ukraine has experts predicting a worldwide 20% drop in chickpeas, the main ingredient in the heavenly dip.
Russia and Ukraine are two of the biggest chickpea exporters in the world, so the pointless and devastating war has meant that suppliers in both countries have seen their business come to a screeching halt.
One expert told Reuters that as soon as the Russian invasion began, “the supply was destroyed, totally”.
Well, if my daily hummus snacks become no more, I’m about to be destroyed, totally (by 'snacks' I mean devouring a whole tub in one sitting).
The USA supply suffered from droughts last year and this year crops are being “bogged down”, according to the Guardian.
A director at agricultural wholesaler Ikon Commodities said that in Australia “parts of the planted area is still under water.”
Hummus heads, deep breaths. We will get through this together!
For now, enjoy as much of that God-tier grazing platter goodness as possible.
