Friend made a tongue in cheek comment about a few of my friends babies eating houmous from weaning age.

I love houmous, therefore get to eat my babies scraps smile and have a stinky little friend along the way wink

Seriously - is it still considered as a 'posh' food?

No it's not posh, they even sell it in Asda shock

It's horrible though grin

Posh - no
Revolting - yes

Since when has it been posh?

usualsuspect3 Fri 19-Oct-12 16:39:44

It looks like it was scraped out of a babies nappy.

I can't imagine that anyone has ever thought of houmous as being posh grin.

It's just food. It isn't at all posh imho,just food,that tastes and looks like cat sick. I don't think of any food as being 'posh',unless one is sitting down to a plate of platinum encrusted zebra eggs perhaps.

I have only just discovered it. And discovered how easy it is to make! My DD loves it, but thinks it's called "Thomas" not "hummous"

It's not posh, it only costs about a quid a tub, how can it be? It's the same price as sour cream and chive dip, that's not posh! ;)

I must admit, I'm not keen on feeding it to the baby if I have to spend much time with them afterwards. Gralic breath right in your face is grim.

I read that as "To think houmous isn't nail polish"


newmummytobe79 Fri 19-Oct-12 16:42:46

smile I thought not! (said in my most posh voice I'll av you know!)

Seabright - I love your post - I think I'll rename it Thomas in our house too! smile

Definitely not posh.

Hummous is delicious. I love middle-Eastern food.

It's not even remotely posh. I've seen working class people wearing Super Dry jackets and Crocs buying it in Morrisons. Plus my sister tells a story of a man she knows who lives in a council house and apparently he loves carrot sticks dipped in humous.

It's not posh, but people who maybe don't eat a wide variety of food, (older people? people who like fairly plain food?) would maybe eat it? When we were weaning DD she loved home made guacamole, and a few people (parents and older friends) were a bit 'ooh, get you giving your 6 month old guacamole...' confused

Like someone up-thread said, it ain't quails eggs and caviar....

Not posh, and my kids love it. Ultimate convenience food.

EthelredOnAGoodDay Fri 19-Oct-12 16:47:05

Maybe not eat it...

Seabright Fri 19-Oct-12 16:47:19

Newmummy - Excellent. Thankfully, she doesn't have a little friend of the same name, which might be awkward.

Any suggestions on Tzatziki (my total fave dip)?

newmummytobe79 Fri 19-Oct-12 16:47:28

Therefore I am not being unreasonable smile

One does love being right, one does wink

It's scruffy hippy food, no? (Speaking as a scruffy ecofreak myself)

dashoflime Fri 19-Oct-12 16:48:59

Lots of things are not expensive or nice but are nevertheless cultural markers of middle classness. Hummous is one of them. YABU

I don't think its posh. DD hates it though :O(

Hoummous isn't posh. It's Turkish food that lots of people eat.

Oh. Sorry i don't mean that Turkish people aren't posh (although my Turkish neighbours are definitely un-posh.)
