Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup
Advantages: Tasty, creamy, cheap and easy to make!
Just what is so brilliant about Heinz tomato soup?
Well, I'm not sure exactly but at 85p it is a brilliant quick and easy meal for if you're not feeling too hungry, for if you need a little comfort food or for if you are having a light lunch. Couple with crusty bread and butter for a great and simple budget meal.
--Price and availability--
At 85p for a standard tin, this soup is available at practically every supermarket. Heinz have been a household brand for years and as a result have a large following of brand loyal customers including myself! Often on deals in large supermarkets like Tescos for four tins for £2 or in Poundland in snack size pots, you can always get a good value deal on this soup.
I have tried many different kinds of tomato soup, including those large "gourmet" plastic tubs you get in the chilled section of supermarkets and I can honestly say that I don't like any of them as much as the Heinz cream of tomato soup. Perhaps it is the creamy texture, as creamy textures often appeal to the majority of us due to the general nutritional values of products with creamy textures. In other words, its natures instinct to enjoy creamy products!
I have had this soup for many years and it is best enjoyed in colder weather as a winter warmer or as a hot lunchtime treat when I'm bored of sandwiches and crave something hot.
--How to make--
Soup from a tin is simple! Simply pour the can into a microwaveable vessel, preferably a bowl! Heat for 2 minutes (depending on the wattage of your microwave - check the instructions for more info on this) then take it out, give it a good stir then pop it back in for a minute. If you have stored your soup in the fridge for freshness, then it will need longer than this to be heated through. However, it is storable for a very long time in any cupboard at room temperature.
--How does the tomato compare to others in the range--
I have only tried the cream of mushroom soup which I liked the first time I tried it, however the most recent time I tried it, I found it bland and watery and it tasted a bit like milk! Which wasn't that nice! I can only blame this on having mushroom soup of superior quality.
Absolutely brilliant tomato soup, best tomato soup ever in my humble opinion! Prefer it to Heinz mushroom soup, they are great at tomatoey products it seems! I wouldn't choose any other brand for tomato soup unless someone can recommend me a really nice one. I doubt I could make tomato soup better myself so this wins. Easy to make and cheap, a real winner - 5 stars!
