The creator of a line of dessert hummus products will appear on the reality TV show “Shark Tank.”
Makenzie Marzluff and her company, Delighted by Hummus, will be featured in the Oct. 15 episode of “Shark Tank,” an ABC show in which entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to investment experts in the hopes of getting money to expand their businesses.
Marzluff, a certified nutritionist, began making her dessert hummuses in her home kitchen and selling them at farmers markets. As with regular hummus, chick peas are the main ingredient in Delighted by Hummus products. Coconut oil is used instead of olive oil, and low-glycemic coconut sugar provides the sweetness.
Delighted By Hummus products, which are sold in grocery stores nationwide, come in four flavors: Brownie Batter, Choc-O-Mint, Vanilla Bean and Snickerdoodle.
