Aldi Soupreme Chunky Chilli Beef Soup
After trying some of the others in the Aldi Soupreme range, some good, some not so, I grabbed a tin of this to try. I have also tried the Tesco and Asda equivalents of this soup I was expecting good things... and was not disappointed.
Firstly, the nutritional bits... ½ can contains 95 calories which is 5% of an adults Guideline Daily Amounts (GDA) and 3g of fat which is 4% of an adults GDA. This pulls me in immediately because I know that I can have a tasty, warm and filling lunch or snack for less than 200 calories for the whole can. Sadly it is not suitable for nut allergy sufferers.
The 400g tin cost 59p which seems to be about average for supermarket own brand soups in my experience. Both the can and the paper label are widely recycled so I just wash the can out, peel the label off and put them both in my recycling bin.
Opening this can with the ring pull (wahey - these are a bonus) I can see that the soup is mostly chunks of potato, kidney beans and beef in a thick deep red, almost kidney bean coloured, soup.
This soup is full of flavour with just the right amount of kidney beans and potato. Just a few more bits of beef would make this soup absolutely perfect. The chilli flavouring is just right to give a real bite. I like everything about this soup, the price, the taste, quality... something that I am learning is hit and miss at Aldi, but this is definitely on my shopping list when I am next in there.
