"This has to be hands down, the best tomato soup I have ever had. My husband, who usually cannot eat canned tomato soup loves it, and it doesn't give him heartburn like canned soup. Even my very picky father swears by this soup. Never buying canned again!"

"Beautiful balance of flavors in this soup. And the croutons are so delicious, I make extras and eat them without the soup."
