I've always liked tomato soups - I think it stems from the fact that my mom always used to make me Campbell's Tomato Soup with Rice when I was sick. Luckily, I haven't associated it in my mind with being sick, and I still enjoy eating it - it's no coincidence that almost all of the tomato soup reviews on Iateapie.net have been positive! When I saw Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque on the supermarket shelves of my local grocery store, I had visions of delightful tomatoe-y goodness, especially since Emily's review of Amy's Organic Low Fat Cream of Tomato Soup was so positive - I figured I couldn't go wrong with another Amy's Tomato Soup!
And my intuition was spot on! This soup is just delicious. The cream adds an unbelievably creamy element to a natural tomato base, and the chunkiness of it is just perfect - actually that's one thing I missed in Campbell soups. This is amazing by itself, and wonderful with a grilled cheese sandwich as well. I LOVE this stuff and will probably have to look into buying it in bulk.
Each 1 cup serving of Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque provides 120 calories, 5% of the daily value for total fat & 10% for saturated fat, 28% of the DV for sodium, 2 grams of fiber (8% of the DV), 14 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein. There is also 40% of the DV for vitamin C and 20% for vitamin A.
The ingredients list includes, organic tomato puree, organic diced
tomatoes, organic cream, organic evaporated cane juice, organic onions, sea salt, and spices. Those are some healthy ingredients, and the nutritional facts are pretty good too - except for the sodium as is the case with most canned soups. Luckily this also comes in a "Light in Sodium" version.
I found Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque on sale at 2 for $5, which is a little more than some other soups, but the clean ingredients list and delicious taste makes this one worth spending the extra $ for.
