Birds Like Hummus Too?

We received this very cute, lovely, email from a customer today, I would say someone's cherished pet was just a tiny bit spoiled! - 
Dear Lilly's, My wife loves your hummus, and every time she gets it out our bird goes nuts and starts to shriek because she wants some too!
This evening she noticed "beak marks" in the hummus and wondered what was going on? So we watched, and figured it out. The bird decided to skip the cracker and go straight to the good stuff. :-)
All the best from Alaska, Bob and Cindy

In an Access Hollywood blog post titled - "Healthy Hollywood: Wellness Wednesday – Future Of Healthy Foods!"

She includes us in her list of new and worthy foods to try, and says the following:

“Lilly’s Hummus.” Unique flavors like “Smoked Tomato and Basil”, “Cracked Pepper,” “Roasted Jalapeno” – there are 8 robust flavors in all and ingredients are simple - organic garbanzos, gluten and trans fat free, low sodium, no preservatives and about 70 cal/serving (2 tbsp).

Astoria (Oregon) Cooperative Grocery

Spotlight on retailers!



We recently visited the Astoria Cooperative Grocery, which is a small town located in the north coast of Oregon. It was an unusually beautiful, sunny (hot, even!) day. Temperatures were recorded at 85 degrees, which is quite unusual for early May in Oregon, especially at the coast, where it is normally cooler than it is inland.

We really enjoyed our visit to Astoria, which is filled with beautiful architecture of an earlier era, many houses and buildings still stand from when the town was first settled.

Here is a site with an interesting history of Astoria, Oregon.
