Muir Glen Organic Chicken Noodle Soup Review

Muir Glen Organic Chicken Noodle SoupThe organic movement has been widespread, and you can find an organic version of anything now, from vegetables and meats to shirts and cleaners. While I do purchase some organic things, there's a lot that I buy a "regular" version of due to cost. Muir Glen, however, has a place in my heart for their excellent tomato products. Spotting that they offer a line of soups, I decided to give one a try.

I opted for the Muir Glen Organic Chicken Noodle Soup - simple and hard to mess up. I opened the can and poured it into my pot. The picture on the front of the can shows the exact contents - chicken, carrots, celery, noodles. I heated it, poured it into a bowl, and loaded up a spoonful. The broth was delicious. It has a nice chicken flavor, with a depth of spices that I haven't experienced with other canned soups. Alas, the same could not be said for anything else. The carrots and noodles were rather mushy, the chicken was tough and had an odd red hue, and the celery was almost nonexistent. I noticed that this is also a lot less chunky than say, Progresso - while paying more for the organic seal, you're also paying for mostly broth.

I purchased a can of Muir Glen Organic Chicken Noodle Soup for $2.49, which is a huge splurge for a canned soup. One 19 ounce can has 2 servings, each of which provides 70 calories, 2 grams of total fat, 1 gram of which is saturated (both are 3% of the daily value), 33% of the DV for sodium (800 mg), 4 grams of protein and 10 grams of carbohydrates which includes 1 gram of fiber and 1 gram of sugars.

The sodium is enough to clog my arteries just thinking about it, though the calorie count is exceptionally low - again, due to more broth. The ingredient list contains a medley of things, but all are organic, pronounceable, and recognizable - a big plus. Still, I'll stick to my lower-sodium Progresso soup - no need to pay more for a perfectly forgettable experience.
