I love soup. It's delicious, it's filling, it's nutritious, it's easy to make -- what's not to love? I could eat it every day! My de facto lunch is a can of ready-to-eat soup, which I love because I can have it ready in less than 5 minutes and I can have a different variety of soup every day. I was recently invited by My Blog Spark to review Progresso® soups, here's what I think of them:
Here's some information about Progresso® soups:
Progresso® New World Recipes™ – Inspired by Mexican recipes, explore one of the fastest growing ethnic cuisines by giving the Progresso New World Recipes line a try. Made with authentic Mexican ingredients and seasonings, four new Progresso soups will be hitting grocery shelves near you - Chicken Tortilla, Meatball & Rice, Black Bean Jalapeno and Chicken & Vegetable.
Progresso Light - America’s number one Light soup just got better, as all 13 existing Progresso Light varieties are now packed with bigger pieces of white meat chicken, more tender pieces of beef or added vegetables. Need even more to talk about? Progresso Light New England Clam Chowder is the first creamy Light ready-to-serve soup that holds true to the Progresso Light name with just 1 Weight Watchers® POINTS® value per serving!
Progresso Reduced Sodium – With 49 percent of shoppers concerned about high cholesterol1, Progresso understands the importance of soluble fiber and reduced sodium diets. New Reduced Sodium Tomato Parmesan soup is one more tasty option that has a delicious blend of flavors and carries the “May Help Lower Cholesterol”2 benefit. In addition, five additional Reduced Sodium soups also carry the “May Help Lower Cholesterol”2 benefit.
Progresso High Fiber – With 9 out of 10 Americans not getting the recommended Daily Value of fiber, Progresso High Fiber line of soups are packed with 7 grams per serving. Giving you one more thing to talk about, Progresso brand’s first Chili Soup just joined the High Fiber family!
Progresso® is one of my favorite soup brands because they make soups that I would make from scratch but just don't have the time to make it, or I only want a single serving. Besides, I like variety and I want a different soup each time. Their soups taste great -- my favorites are the Progresso Light Beef and Barley soup (just 1 Weight Watchers point!) and their Chicken Tortilla soup -- so being asked to review Progresso was a no-brainer for me. In fact, the soups they sent me -- Chicken Tortilla soup and Clam Chowder -- are actually 2 staples in our pantry already!
Not much to complain about -- I even love that they have easy-open cans!
The Bottom Line
I highly recommend Progresso® soups!
