Much has happened since Penn alum entertainment journalist Emily Frances froze her eggs on national TV a few years ago.
After the jump, learn about Emily’s tasty new endeavor and her Superbowl themed commercial airing which just recently started airing!
You squeeze ketchup and mustard out of a bottle, why not hummus?
Over the past year, Emily has joined forces with her husband Ami Blashkovsky, the creator and self-proclaimed “Hummus King” of Squeeze Z Hummus, the next great condiment. It’s all about “NO MORE DOUBLE DIPPING!” Their line also includes Babaganoosh, Tzatziki, Tahini etc. They are also expanding to ketchup-like packs and yogurt-style tubes for lunches.
Emily is the head of Media for Squeeze Z Hummus:
“I left WPIX and am reinventing myself as an entrepreneur, putting together my own business while also working full tlme on Squeeze Z. We are creating a marketplace for using hummus as a condiment on a hotdog, sandwiches, burgers vegetables, even used at BBQ parties. Potato chips which wont chip with Squeeze Z Hummus. This is the golden opportunity for Squeeze Z to be branded. There is a golden opportunity to show that we are a multi-cultural society, where Ethnic food can be recognized as part of Americana.”
