Heinz Cream of Chicken Pot Soup

Published on May 8th, 2020

£1.40 from Tesco at time of writing. A tin (as opposed to plastic pot) of exactly the same stuff would be less than a pound. It’s certainly easier/tidier than a tin – 1m45s in the microwave, stirring halfway, and no pan to wash up. All of the packaging parts are recyclable too. But the soup… [Read More]

Grace Cock Flavour Noodle Soup Mix

Published on May 25th, 2019

Chuckle chuckle, guffaw guffaw, tee hee. We’ve all seen it on the shelf of our local corner market, and we’ve all thought about buying it just to be able to take it home to say “who wants to try some cock”? So, in a review that may finally see Student Munch blacklisted from the web,… [Read More]

New Covent Garden Soup Co Leek & Potato

Published on July 16th, 2013 New Covent Garden Soup Co

Very tasty soup; creamy and rich whilst still being moreish and not sickly. You could be served this as a starter in a restaurant along with fresh bread and butter and you’d most likely be perfectly satisfied. The markup on this is huge- it probably cost Covent Garden pennies to make. I got it reduced… [Read More]

Baxters Luxury Lobster Bisque with Brandy and Fresh Double Cream

Published on April 4th, 2013 Baxters

A rich lobster flavour really comes through the mixture. The smoothness of the texture resembles the smoothness of real lobster. Gorgeous flavour. If you find it for £2 or more, knock a star off.

Tesco Finest British Roast Chicken Soup

Published on March 30th, 2013

Reasonably tasty. Actual pieces of chicken, some of them almost an inch long! Nice, easy microwave instructions. Nice idea. More chicken then expected, and more than it first appears. Not bad!

Sainsbury’s Chicken noodle soup

Published on March 28th, 2013

The noodles have no texture, flavour or vigour. Nicely surprised by real pieces of chicken, albeit tiny. Authentic Chinese flavour, but no SUBSTANCE. Feels a bit like eating the sauce from a chinese dish, but without the dish. Tasty enough, would have again. Serving suggestion: add your own pieces of chicken/mushrooms. Though, admittedly, this kind… [Read More]

Heinz Farmers’ Market Broccoli + Stilton Soup

Published on November 7th, 2012

The cheese and the broccoli come through very strongly. Finally, a soup that doesn’t taste like every other cup-a-soup! Not overly blended- nice little bits of potato and onion here and there. Tasty, nutricious. Beware this is stilton cheese, and tastes like it. Don’t expect cheddar! Lovely, powerful, mature cheese, which isn’t too strong for… [Read More]

Sainsbury’s Chicken Laksa Soup

Published on September 2nd, 2012

Really gorgeous thai curry smell. Don’t let the word “soup” fool you- I tried eating this with a spoon and struggled! This is principally a noodle dish and you’ll need chopsticks or a fork. Lovely, clearly fresh ingredients, healthy stuff, one of your five a day. The sauce is just creamy enough, and has a… [Read More]

Sainsbury’s Oxtail Soup

Published on May 27th, 2012

Pleasant, dark taste, akin to a gravy. Basically a mincemeat gravy, only a bit mean on the mincemeat. The soup is a little bland, could do with seasoning. Meat pieces are about the size of the bits of meat that get stuck in your teeth after a hearty meal. In other words, titchy. Certainly edible,… [Read More]
