A mixed view on cup a soups
Member Name: BoneyTony
Advantages: Quick easy with a slice of bread quick snack
Disadvantages: the chicken soup smells so so weird and yuk. Too high a salt content
ahhh batchelors cup a soups. a whole days GDA of salt in a mug (ok slight exaggeration but not far off)...
I have mixed opinions about batchelors cup a soups. I find some can be really tasty and comforting but others quite rank and strange smelling,
My fave cup a soup by far is either the golden vegetable or the ministrone.
Basically its not hard to prepare you get out a mug boil the kettle empty the contents of the little packet into your mug pour on hot water sit back with your feet up and enjoy,
What i have realised with cup a soups is a precise amount of water is needed to create the perfect cup, a little to much water and your left with a salty cup of hot water with a few odd bits floating around, or too little water and your left with a gloopy soup that makes you gag. so depending on the size of your mug and the amount of water, will determine what sort of results you will get.
Cup a soups are now avaliable in many different flavours from chicken (that i think smells off and awful) to potato and leek and cream of asparagus (which i think is quite yummy)
These soups should be consumed in moderation as the salt content really is quite high all along this range which i think is a shame as if it wasnt for this i would consume them more often because with a slice of bread make a quick and easy snack. But i gather if they reduced the salt content then there would hardly be any taste at all,
Batchelors cup a soups also come in a range that contain crutons !
At the end of the day these are not a subsitute for a real wholesome soup. They are just quick and simple, but i would rather make my own soup OR a nice can of quality soup over these any day.
Summary: once in a while fine but you will soon crave a proper soup in time
