Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato Bisque Review

Amy's Organic Chunky Tomato BisqueI'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!

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup
Calories: 120
Total Fat: 3.5 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 2 grams, 10%
Sodium: 680 mg, 20%
Carbohydrates: 21 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugars: 14 grams
Protein: 3 grams

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.
