Amy's Organic Fat Free Alphabet Soup Review

Amy's Organic Fat Free Alphabet SoupI remember coming home from school when I was a kid and being greeted by my mom with a warm bowl of Spaghetti-O's or Alphabet Soup, on a cold rainy afternoon. I thought it was really interesting that Amy's is attempting to bring out the kid in us with a slightly higher quality, Amy's Organic Fat Free Alphabet Soup. This just started me reminiscing, and before I knew it, a can was going home with me.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup
Calories: 80
Total Fat: 0 grams, 1%

Sugars: 4 grams
Protein: 3 grams

This soup (which is vegan and Kosher) was more tasty than most other canned vegetable soups I've had (and not just because I could spell things out with the noodles). The broth is prominently tomato based with a touch of spices and all of the components of the soup are al dente (not mushy) - about the size of a piece of corn. Therefore, you get more vegetables (corn, carrots, potatoes, green beans and onions) and noodles in each spoonful, making for a more flavorful and textural mouthful.

Each cup of Amy's Organic Fat Free Alphabet Soup provides a mere 80 calories, no fat, 680 mg of sodium (28% of the daily value), 2 grams of fiber (8% of the DV), 4 grams of sugars and 3 grams of protein. The sodium content is most definitely something to keep an eye on, but otherwise, it's pretty impressive.

The organic ingredient list is short, and starts with filtered water, organic tomato puree, organic corn, carrots, potatoes ... and just more goodness. I would most definitely dish out $2 - $3 for a 14.1 ounce can of Amy's Organic Fat Free Alphabet Soup. Not only is it a delicious accompaniment to a crunchy grilled cheese or crisp salad, but it makes for a warming snack on these upcoming cold winter days.
