Kettle Cuisine Thai Curry Chicken Soup

Kettle Cuisine Thai Curry Chicken Soup is described as having, "All natural chicken, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, bell peppers and brown rice are combined with aromatic green curry, lemongrass and coconut milk in our made-from-scratch chicken stock to create a perfect balance of authentic Southeast Asian flavors." Well, that sounds fantastic to me, so this was what I pulled out for lunch a few days ago.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 10 ounces (1 container)
Calories: 330
Total Fat: 11 grams, 17%
Saturated Fat: 8 grams, 40%
Sodium: 560 mg, 23%
Carbohydrates: 44 grams
Fiber: 4 grams, 16%
Sugar: 2 grams
Protein: 13 grams

This soup comes frozen, and the directions say to run it under water for 30 seconds to loosen it from the bowl, then add it to a pot and heat, stirring frequently, which is what I did. Or you could zap it in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. This gluten- and dairy- free soup certainly delivers on the Thai curry flavor - which to me is very distinctly different from an Indian curry (which is what I grew up on). Thai curry is more aromatic, sweet and slightly creamy in texture and taste. It took me a while to get used to Thai curry actually, but I do like it. And this soup - well, it's very full bodied with the rice, chicken, bamboo shoot and all the other ingredients. Totally delicious.

I loved the taste, but was not crazy about the amount of saturated fat - 8 grams or 40% of the daily value per 10 ounce serving (1 container). Each serving of Kettle Cuisine Thai Curry Chicken Soup also provides 330 calories, 11 grams of total fat (17% of the DV), 560 mg of sodium (23% of the DV), 4 grams of fiber (16% of the DV), 2 grams of sugars and 13 grams of protein. The ingredients are all natural.

I received samples of this soup to review, and I do love this take on chicken soup as it's hearty and zesty, but, with all the fat, and a retail price of $4.59, I wouldn't buy this just to eat as lunch. As a basis for a bigger pot of Thai curry soup - yes - but solo, I would probably spring for V8 SouthWestern Corn Soup or Pacific Natural Foods Organic Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup, both of which cost less, but also have stellar ingredients.
