The dessert hummus trend is alive and well — and it appears Aldi is all about it. Last month, the retailer released hummus in Mixed Berry Cobbler and Peach Cobbler flavors, which created quite the stir on social media. And now, Aldi has followed up with two more dessert hummus flavors: Cookie Butter and Snickerdoodle.

Both products are by Park Street Deli, which also created the cobbler-inspired hummus flavors. According to the packaging, the Cookie Butter hummus is a "sweetly spiced dessert hummus, reminiscent of classic speculoos cookies." The Snickerdoodle hummus is described as "indulgent cinnamon-spiced dessert hummus."

As predicted, shoppers have mixed feelings about these hummus flavors. Some users loved the concept, while others couldn't get past the idea of cookies with hummus.
