Baxters Healthy Chicken and Vegetable Soup Review

Baxters Healthy Chicken and Vegetable SoupAs I was strolling down the soup aisle in search of a flavorful Amy's Soup, like Amy's Organic Black Bean Vegetable Soup, I spotted a soup on the shelves that I had never tried before, Baxters Healthy Chicken & Vegetable Soup. Since I was in an adventurous mood, I decided to let go of "sure for unsure" and picked up a can.

Oh my goodness (said in my Sheneneh voice - fellow Martin fans will get that reference)! This soup is bursting with a delightfully unique flavor - it's like chicken noodle soup taken up a notch. The beans add a nice textural difference, while the chicken looks like you just diced it up yourself.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1/2 can
Calories: 110
Total Fat: 1.5 gram, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 690 mg, 29%
Carbohydrates: 14 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugars: 3 gram
Protein: 7 grams

It's not without a few ... hiccups ... though, as the carrots are a bit mushy, and if you get too big of a chunk of chicken, it's tough and make for a very unappealing bite. I am never 100% satisfied with the chicken in chicken noodle soups anyway (take Muir Glen Organic Chicken Noodle Soup for example). This particular chicken has a very appealing appearance, but the texture is sub-par.

Each 1/2 can serving of Baxters Healthy Chicken and Vegetable Soup provides 110 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat, no saturated fat, 690mg of sodium (29% of the daily value), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 3 grams of sugars and 7 grams of protein (if you can eat all of the not-so-tender chicken).

The ingredient list includes Water, Carrots, Onions, Peas, Haricot Beans, Potatoes, Cauliflower, Green Beans, Parsnips, Swede, Cornflour, Sweetcorn, Chicken Stock, Celery, Chicken (1%), Sea Salt, Chicken Flavouring, Chicken Fat, Dried Onions, Parsley, White Pepper. Vegetables 38%.

I paid only $2.29 for a 19 ounce can of Baxters Healthy Chicken and Vegetable Soup. I would love to see Baxter's ditch the tough chicken and bulk it up with some more beans and veggies because this robust broth is worth the extra effort. I plan on giving Baxters another try as they have MANY soup varieties, but perhaps next time I will choose a meat free version.
