I'm eating a late lunch of a can of soup today because I may be going out to a bar later. Anyway minestrone is usually my favourite, but OMG this brand of soup tastes so gross. All the veggies and pasta are so soft, you don't even need teeth to chew them! There also appears to be oil floating on the top of it (in small circles). To add insult to injury, I just read the label and yes, there are preservatives in them too. What a rip off!!! I'm sticking to my campbell's healthy request from now on!

:lol: This struck me as funny. Sorry your soup sucked. You should tell us the brand so we can all avoid it! Hope you have fun at the bar tonight :D

I make a huge pot of soup every week and keep it in my fridge. I alternate between tomato, cabbage, bean and beef and Chicken and mushroom with vegetables.

I make it myself so the sodium is low and it is low calorie. I eat a bowl almost every day sometimes two.

I am so glad you guys reminded me about soup. There are some really good soups to make that are very non fatting.

stupid soup. i like progresso's southwest veggie (spicy mexican flavor) and italian veggie (duh, italian) they are both pretty good in my opinion. i never get the ones with chicken because i add my own or eat it without. i try to skip the ones with pasta too just cuz i don't need the cals. the mexican one has black beans and it's gooood.

I love canned soup, never tried that brand you had trouble with though. My favorite soup is tomato... It's one of those foods that reminds me of being a kid!

I prefer this option. Homemade soup is cheap, easy and lasts forever with the right freeze-able storage containers. And my soup beats Progresso.... although when I'm so sick I can't move the chicken noodle will do the trick.

Homemade soup is my favorite! When we moved to our new place, we bought a freezer just so I could freeze leftover soups and meals so the nights when I don't feel like cooking, or when I don't feel well, I can just defrost and re-heat. It is sooo much yummier than canned or pre-packed frozen stuff. And SO much healthier!

I too make a big pot of a soup every week. It's great to have on hand. I also have a rotation of different varieties that I alternate with from week to week.

LOVE soup. HOMEMADE soup, that is. :)

I am partial to canned tomato soup. You can throw in rice and make it more hearty and add a little bit of basil.

My favorite homemade soup is turkey noodle, New England clam chowder or beef vegetable. I think I am going to make some tomorrow.
