The MIT Hummus Experience

The MIT Hummus Experience began in 2008. It's a celebration of creativity and all things hummus. Teams create their own flavors and are judged by the entire MIT community. In conjunction with the taste-off, there are free give-aways from hummus companies, local restaurants, and co-sponsors. The event is co-sponsored by Friends of Israel and takes place in conjunction with the Israeli Independence Day Carnival, MIT's Yom Haatzmaut celebration.

The MIT Hummus Experience is currently on hiatus.
