The flu bug is starting to creep its way out of hiding and my grades (and well being) depend on how well I can win in this game of hide and seek. Unfortunately, I faltered a bit this past week and started feeling those body aches and itchy throat that you never want to encounter! When it came to fueling my tired, sore body through rigorous studies, I reached for the most comforting thing I could find ... SOUP! The last time I was at the store, I picked up a new flavor of Campbell's Soup at Hand (Vegetable with Mini Round Noodles) and there couldn't have been a better time to try it out.
The directions are pretty straightforward, so if you have about 2 minutes, you're good to go. Better yet, the vegetable flavor is very thorough, resounding throughout the comforting broth. The somewhat mushy vegetables are indistinguishable from the mushy round noodles; although they are the perfect size for flowing through the mouth of the container and do add a bit of textural difference to what would otherwise be a simple tomato soup drink. I enjoyed this comforting Soup at Hand as I sat at my desk, not feeling my best, with a list full of homework that needed to be done. Even if you stir it up before popping on the bright red lid, you will still experience a surplus of chewy goodies towards the end of the cup ... you'll even encounter some crunchy carrot pieces!
Each 10.5 ounce container of Campbells Soup at Hand (Vegetable with Mini Round Noodles) provides a full serving of vegetables, in addition to 100 calories, 650mg of sodium (27% of the daily value), 14 grams of sugar, 1 gram of fiber and 2 grams of protein. Furthermore, unlike the Campbell's Soup at Hand Vegetable Beef Soup, you will not find HFCS or MSG in the fairly short ingredient list, which starts with Water, Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), Crushed Tomatoes (Water, Crushed Tomato Concentrate), Carrots and Sugar.
This is the perfect midday snack or emergency fuel to consume while typing away at your computer or anytime you're on the go (especially as the weather starts getting colder and the flu bug comes out of hiding). I paid $1.29 for a container and needless to say, I will be stocking up on this (and the Campbell's Soup at Hand 25% Less Sodium Chicken with Mini Noodles Review is pretty good too).
