Pacific Natural Foods Homestyle Creamy Southwestern Corn Soup

As I was looking at various soups in the supermarket to review, Pacific Natural Foods Homestyle Creamy Southwestern Corn Soup caught my eye, as it's Vegan, Kosher, gluten free and low fat. The only thing it didn't say was delicious - but I sure was hoping it would be.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 8 ounces
Calories: 90

Now this soup has a lot to live up to because V8 SouthWestern Corn Soup is the BUSINESS! Unfortunately for Pacific Foods, I had already experienced what a delicious "Southwestern" corn soup tastes like, and I wasn't impressed with their rendition.

First off, it could really be described as just creamy corn soup, because that it was ... creamy and slightly sweet. What it didn't have was any kind of Southwestern flavor AT ALL. I didn't get a hint of spicy - even the Muir Glen Organic Chicken Tortilla Soup Review has more of a spicy kick than this. Still, this soup isn't really bad, in fact, the more I ate, the better I thought it tasted and it didn't seem as sweet as at first.

Each cup of Pacific Natural Foods Homestyle Creamy Southwestern Corn Soup provides 90 calories from 1 gram of total fat, no saturated fat, 450 mg of sodium (19% of the daily value), 2 grams of fiber, sugars & protein. The ingredients are, filtered water, sweet corn, rice flour, onion, evaporated cane juice, seasoning (spices, salt, garlic, onion, evaporated cane juice, cilantro, sunflower oil), sea salt, guar gum.

I purchased a 32 ounce box for $2.50 which is very economical, but this is not my favorite variety. I prefer Pacific Natural Foods Organic Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup and Creamy Roasted Carrot Soup.
