Makenzie Marzluff brings Delighted by Dessert Hummus, her chickpea based dessert hummus, in Shark Tank episode 901. With flavors like brownie batter, snickerdoodle, and vanilla bean, this isn't your grandfather's hummus. Makenzie has a background in culinary arts. In 2015, she was doing some soul searching, trying to find a way to “spread her glitter.” She was experimenting with dessert hummus and decided that was her life's work.
A few short weeks after that epiphany, she had product in her first farmer's market and she vowed Delighted by Dessert Hummus would be the first dessert hummus on national store shelves. She markets the gluten-free product as an alternative to sweet desserts like cookie dough and ice cream. You can dip pretzels, graham crackers or anything else you like in the dessert hummus, or just eat it with a spoon.
Her message is resonating with national retailers. Delighted by Dessert Hummus is in many Whole Foods, Walmart, Wegman's and it's rolling out in Publix and many other stores. The product will be in the hummus section of the store. Her dream of being the first national dessert hummus is quickly becoming a reality. She likely needs a Shark's know-how and cash to help her manage growth.
Will a Shark want to dine on this hummus?
