|Gift Package from Progresso Soups|
I lived across the street from my elementary school and was allowed to go home for lunch. On most winter days my mom would have a warm mug of Progresso Soup waiting for me when I walked in the door. Sometimes it was the Lentil or the Clam Chowder, but most of the time it was Chickarina. It is my kids' favor soup. My son can live on it and both of them ask for it when they are sick.
I used to play an imaginary game with my Chickarina soup. It was set in medieval times: meatballs were kings, chicken pieces queens, celery knights... and so on. The pasta was always peasants and in each spoon full I would report on the wealth of this kingdom by the number of royalty and peasants I was able to pick up...
I told my kids about my game and they said, "Wow, that's what kids did before they had iTouch?"
Yeah, it was called, "Imagination."
So my kids didn't take up my game, but they did take up my love of Progresso soup. That is why I had no issues when MyBlogSpark asked me to review two new light Progresso soups.
First we tried Progresso Light Creamy Potato with Bacon and Cheese Soup. My whole family thought the consistency was creamy but not clumpy and heavy. We all liked the bacon bits and potato chunks... but we felt that Progresso needed to reduce the smokiness of the soup. The smell was too strong. With that little tweak we would buy this soup.
My husband and I shared the Progresso Light Chicken Pot Pie Soup for lunch this afternoon. We both expected the soup to be thicker because it was called "chicken pot pie." I didn't really taste the cream in the soup; it just tasted like a nicely seasoned chicken soup. All of the vegetables were tasty and firm and the flavor was quite good for a light soup.
