After the courgette crisis, a new threat looms, prompting “social media hysteria”: a national hummus shortage. Oh no, whatever are we going to do?!
A survey in 2013 marked Britain as the hummus capital of Europe, with 41% of people having pots in the fridge, almost twice as many as any other country.
Without underestimating the rise of the chattering classes, this looks like a dodgy statistic to me.
Anyway, the Middle East would seem to have more pressing problems right now, even if we don’t. Anyway, now we’ve moved on to tofu, apparently.
