Tesco Cream of Tomato Soup
I'll just start by saying the soup I'm going to review is indeed Tesco Cream of Tomato Soup but it is not from the value range as the picture above shows.
I mainly buy soup for my son, but he will only eat Tomato Soup. He always has Heinz; he loves the stuff along with half a loaf of bread. Now the only reason I bought this Tesco Tomato Soup was the simple fact that this one particular time I went to get my usual four pack of Heinz Tomato, they didn't have any, in fact they didn't have a single tin of Heinz Tomato Soup, so I decided just this once I'd get Tesco's own, just a couple of tins, it can't taste that different I thought.
This soup, if you can indeed call it soup, couldn't be further from the great taste of Heinz. Okay to be fair I paid a fraction of the price per tin and you know what they say "You get what you pay for." I really didn't expect it to be quite as bad as it was. In appearance the tin of soup looks quite nice the picture on the front of the tin displays a nice looking bowl of creamy thick tomato soup. The tin has a ring pull for making opening easier.
However once the tin of soup was open, the soup appeared very thin and runny, not thick and creamy at all. I didn't let this put me off though, heated for a couple of minutes in the microwave, stirred then popped it back in for around 30 seconds that heated the soup just right. I stirred the soup once it was hot enough and put it on a tray with bread for my son. I hadn't told him it was Tesco's own I wanted to see if he would notice the difference.
After one spoonful he asked me what soup it was, I had to come clean and tell him but argued the fact that tomato soup was tomato soup whoever happened to make it. I got myself a spoon and took a spoonful for myself to taste. It really was awful; the consistency was like water, the taste was like a chalky tomato sort of flavour, it tasted really powdery to me. I could never have eaten it all and so did not expect my son to eat it either.
So for those who may be interested in trying this soup for your selves?
The soup comes in a 400g tin, it is suitable for vegetarians. The tin does state ingredients and allergy advice which I won't list here but you can find this information on the Tesco website should you wish to know.
The can is metal and can be recycled.
The price for a single 400g tin of this Tesco Cream of Tomato Soup is 45p it has just been reduced from 59p and can be found on the shelves of most Tesco stores among the tin isles.
Thank you for reading my review which may appear on other sites.
Summary: You get what you pay for, this is a nasty tasting soup.
