Campbell's Select Gold Label Butternut Squash Soup Review

Campbell's Select Gold Label Butternut Squash SoupAs an avid fan of veggies, I am well versed in many of the different types of squash out there, and I like them all: acorn, summer, butternut, spaghetti squash ... yum! However, I've never had them as soups. Recently, at a company event, I was able to sample butternut squash soup and it was good - really good. The naturally sweet flavor of the squash permeated in every bite. Excited at my new find, I rushed out to the store to see if I could find this bit of heaven commercially. My first try was with Campbell's Select Butternut Squash Soup.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup
Calories: 90
Total Fat: 1.5 grams, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 810 mg, 34%
Carbohydrates: 18 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 12%
Sugars: 8 grams
Protein: 2 grams

It turned out to be not at all what I had expected. This soup had a slightly salty, hearty taste reminiscent of a baked potato, but with none of the sweet goodness I have come to associate with winter squash. Although it was thick and rich, it lacked the unique taste of home made butternut squash, and was honestly a big disappointment for me.

Each 1 cup serving of Campbell's Select Gold Label Butternut Squash Soup provides 90 calories, 2% of the daily value for total fat, 34% of the DV for sodium plus 3 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of protein.

I know the amount of sodium in canned soups is usually high - but wowza - especially considering each box has 2 servings. I purchased this soup for $1.49 at my local grocery store, the final price after a $1.00 coupon I had clipped from the Sunday paper.

Unfortunately, this just was not the soup for me. It wasn't BAD soup, just a bit too much cream of potato style for me. Not a bad price ... just not worth buying again. Unfortunately, Amy's Organic Butternut Squash Light in Sodium Soup didn't get any better reviews, so I'll keep searching for a good butternut soup.
