For the love of chickpeas

There’s nothing we like more here at SMARTY than something that’s simple and honest. An item that’s modest and does what it says – no fuss or flim-flam.

I’ll give you an example. If SMARTY had to choose the weather tomorrow it would be clear and sunny. A piece of clothing would have to be a white tee. You get the picture, straight, smart and confident. So, if we had to choose a dip, there’s only one place we’re headed – and that’s hummus.

It’s the world’s go-to – where would a carrot stick or pitta be without it? As simple as blitzing some chickpeas and tahini (a squeeze of lemon ups the game) it’s got to be the SMARTY dip of choice.

And we’re not the only ones – it seems a lot of other folks feel the same way. So much so that this year will mark the 7th official International Hummus Day.

Monday 13 May is the special day, but we reckon it’s so good every day should be hummus day. Whether you meet up with friends for a mezze platter, get the blender out at home, or go on a pilgrimage to wherever you believe this amazing dip originates – it’s impossible to say where by the way – some say Greece, others Turkey, The Lebanon, Syria or even Egypt. – What we do know is you should keep SMARTY in your pocket. You’ll need to find a recipe, restaurant or maybe even some flights if you’re taking your love of hummus super-seriously. And you can do it all with us.

There are events all over the world – it doesn’t matter where you are – London, Melbourne, New York, Dubai, France, Lithuania to name but a few. Take a look at the official hummus event list and get ready to celebrate.

If you’re staying in the EU you can use your SMARTY plan as normal. It works just like it does at home with no hidden charges or extra costs. You'll just need to make a one-off change to your phone settings, so your SIM works abroad. It's easy and only takes a couple of minutes. And if you’ve ventured further afield for the love of chickpeas then top up your cash balance and pay as you go. You only pay for what you use, not a penny more. If you don’t use all your cash balance, you can choose to put that money towards your next month.

So, hummus then – the SMARTY of dips.
