During my younger days a variety of soups made up quite a large part of my diet. I can still remember those Campbell Soup Tins and the Knorr Soup Packets. Several flavours caught by fancy then and still do now. Suprisingly most of the flavours that I prefer are the vegetable varieties rather than the meat ones. Mushroom Soup, Vegetable Noodle Soup and off course Tomato Soup make up my favourites and I continued to enjoy these flavours until today.
However it was just recently that I had the opportunity to try the Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup and boy was I impressed. Its almost like a meal in itself, especially if had with a couple of slices of buttered bread.
One thing that immediately strikes you from the moment you open the tin is its extra creamy texture. This fabulous appearance is continued until it hits your soup plate and then the bottom of your tummy. Absolutely yummy. (Heah I becoming a poet that last sentence rhymed)
It has a wonderful aroma and I make sure I have a couple of whiffs before digging my spoon in for the real thing. (By the way “The Real Thing” was my title for one of my other ops on a, yes you guessed it, “Heinz” product and coincedently another tomato product in tomato ketchup)
Its tin is the standard Heinz metal tins and the labels highlight the contents of the soup in sharp and distinctive pictures of the respective vegetable, in this case the tomato.
Not only does this thoroughly satisfy your appetite it is also extremely healthy in that it contains no artificial ingredients or colourings. So that strikingly red concoction you see is completely natural. Well what colour did you expect from a tomato anyway.
Its suitable for vegetarians and contains an average count of 128 calories for a 200gm serving. Not absolutely acceptable to those on a weight loss regimin but passable I would think.
At just 45p a can this makes economical sense and for the quality and health aspects of this product, its an absolute bargain and great value for money.
So what else would you like me to say. Should I tell you how to cook it?. I think you can figure that out yourself.
One thing is for sure and that is I am very impressed with this and will most certainly be sampling some of the other flavours in the Heinz range in the not to distant future.
By the way I wont go so far as classifying it as creamier than the contents of a scrotum, as so eloquently put by Deano, but it goes close. LOL. Yuch I’ll have to clear my thoughts before my next meal.
