MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 2, 2014

I predict this powdered soup starter will become a staple in my pantry. I hate using "canned" soups in recipes because of sodium, fat, etc. (not to mention preservative) contents. This is a much healthier version and I don't have to worry about using it for meals I prepare for my gluten-free friends!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 1, 2014

What a great idea, especially because my favorite cream soup is now up to $1.65 per can. This sounds like a good alternative. Just had to say thanks to DeAnn from Worthington OH - I grew up there. :-)

Good. Can tweak seasonings and salt as desired. Thickens very well. I quit buying the canned stuff.

MY REVIEW

Very nice. It thickened well and tasted good. Next time I will use reduced sodium boullion.

I love to keep this on hand. I have opening a can of soup just to use half; this makes life much easier.
