Now’s a good time for Trader Joe’s to assess what sells and what doesn’t #TraderJoes when these two stacks of chocolate hummus and Buffalo hummus are the ONLY things left in the store... 💁♂️ pic.twitter.com/27AhbKJBVo— KARL WARDEN (@KarlWarden) March 13, 2020
You guessed it: there are some hummus products that some people find too reprehensible to purchase even in crisis. Those unfortunate enough to be included on the list appear to be chocolate, buffalo, and olive tapenade-flavored dips.

“What #Dasani do to people???” joked @inkr3dibl3_k on Twitter. @YELLOWPAINT11 joined in on the ridicule, writing, “Even during an apocalypse ppl still won’t drink Aquafina” followed by four crying emojis. Our hearts go out to those water bottles affected.
