Annie Chun's All Natural Vietnamese Pho Soup Bowl Review

Annie Chun's All Natural Vietnamese Pho Soup BowlPho is the national soup of Vietnam and usually takes at least half a day to cook, so I was intrigued when I saw a packaged Pho soup. Still, with an all natural ingredients list, I figured it wouldn't be a waste of money to try Annie Chun's All Natural Vietnamese Pho Soup Bowl. Annie Chun's says, "our translation of this classic dish combines a savory, organic beef broth with the flavors of cinnamon, star anise, and peppercorns along with premium, fresh cooked Chinese-style Hokkien noodles topped off with scallions and bok choy."

NUTRITION FACTS

Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 970 mg, 40%
Carbohydrates: 45 grams
Fiber: 2 grams, 8%
Sugars: 3 grams
Protein: 6 grams

The taste was surprisingly slightly sweet, and spicy! Loved the broth. The noodles were standard, thick noodles, and I don't particularly care for eating big chunks of green onion, but still, I found this quite delish. I ended up drinking all the broth and leaving about half of the noodles - quite the reverse from when I eat canned soups.

The Annie Chun's All Natural Vietnamese Pho Soup Bowl contains 2 servings. Each serving provides 220 calories, 2% of the daily value for total fat, 40% of the DV for sodium, 2 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugars and 6 grams of protein. This soup must hold the record for highest amount of sodium in a packaged soup!

The ingredients list but the quality is evident - 100% all natural, no preservatives, no MSG.

At the end of the day though, I have to admit that Annie Chun's All Natural Vietnamese Pho Soup Bowl is basically a glorified Ramen noodle bowl (albeit natural). Plus, though shalt not get 80% of the daily value of sodium from just one meal (2 servings - which is probably close to 100% of the recommended daily amount).
