“Simply Souper”

published 06/07/2004

Pronice comfort food

Consnot very nutritious

You always get a HUG from a Batchelors mug ! ,Or so they say, I’ve never had one from mine, but I do love these soups, though I suspect they are not really VERY nutritional, but they are tasty, and a bit of a comfort food. Packet soups can not really rival their ‘tinned’...

ProEasy, quick, convenient

ConsSalty, erzatz in flavour, very un-Minestrone like

There's nothing quite like a good Minestrone soup, is there? So chunky, it's nearly a stew, full of succulent vegetables, lots of tomato goodness, and small soup pasta, with maybe a sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese over the top, this is a soup that is truly a warming and filling meal. Sadly...

Consnot any really....I don't think.....

At the moment, there is a bug going round our town, and luckily, as of yet I have not caught it. Having felt a little under the weather in the last couple of days, I have decided to stick to soup to try and help me feel a little better. I went down to Tesco and picked up a cup a soup broccoli and...

“Have a Cuppa Soup!”

Batchelor's Cup a Soup... I am a big fan of Cup a Soups and I do think that you can't go wrong when buying the Batchelor's ones as I have often strayed away to other cheaper alternatives but found them to be rather disappointing. Batchelor's do such a wide range of cup a soups and I will often go...

“I'm No Mug”

published 15/04/2009

ProA quick and tasty snack

ConsNone

`A hug in a mug` this is a phrase that Batchelor's have adopted to describe their cup a soups. So what have we got? A cardboard box that bears the Batchelor logo and sitting in the middle of the colourful box is a mug full of steaming hot veggie soup. Inside of the box there are five sachets, all...

“Go on - have a hug in a mug!”

published 16/10/2008

ProCheap, convenient, tasty and filling

ConsYou don't actually get a hug!

I love soup, especially now it's getting colder. There is something very satisfying about a lovely cup of soup to warm you up on a winters day. I've tried probably every brand of cup a soup going and normally they are really thin and watery and don't really taste anything like they should...

ProTasty, warming, comforting

Conserm........ some flavours are a bit tasteless

I have bought a few of these in different flavours, chicken, chicken and leek, chicken and sweetcorn and rich tomato and basil and have decided that I prefer the 'Original Chicken' flavour, whereas my other half prefers the 'Rich Tomato and basil'. These cost around 88p for a box of 4 or 5...

ProTasty chicken flavour

ConsToo thin, not filling at all

I thought i would try these batchelors cup a soup's when they were on offer in tescos 2 boxes for £1. I bought chicken and vegetable, and chicken and leek. I thought for 50p a box, and 5 sachets in each box, this works out at only 10p for each soup! From the look on the picture, these look like...

published 26/07/2002

ProSlimming, quick

ConsTaste nasty and thin.

Cup a soup is a marvellous invention. A just add water alternative to one of the most undervalued products that alleviates hunger. Unfortunately, cupasoup is not substantial enough to do this efficiently and you end up even MORE hungry! Ok, lets talk about Cupasoup. What is it? Well, with the...

I bought this today in Asda. I didn't fancy the usual cheese sandwich for my lunch and being cold and wet outside I thought this would warm me up. It's made by Batchelors (which is owned by Campbell Grocery Products Ltd) and comes in a distinctive blue box containing four sachets and cost 82...

“How To Soup Up Your Life.”

published 13/04/2002

ProVery quick and convenient.

ConsCheap and cheerful.

I honestly couldn`t have imagined myself ever admitting to consuming cup-a-soups, let alone writing an opinion on them but it`s a funny old world and there you are. For anyone who has led a very sheltered life or resides in a country that this "delicacy" has not made an inroad into, allow me to...

I love soup, preferably home made, and nice and thick and creamy, but there are days when I just can’t be bothered to actually stand there and make it myself from scratch. At these times I usually turn to the cupboard and fish out a tin or packet of something, and one of my favourite choices is...
