"I thought that this was a great tasting and quick soup. The ham and cheese flavor is very tasty and my kids really enjoyed it. Paired with rolls, it's a great meal. It also comes together very quickly, which I like."

"I would use hamburger in place of ham next time. Also, I wouldn't use as much garlic."
