Progresso High Fiber Creamy Tomato Basil Soup Review

Progresso High Fiber Creamy Tomato Basil SoupLet me just come right out and say this ... Progresso High Fiber Creamy Tomato Basil Soup tastes like a simple spaghetti sauce mixed with a handful of basil to give it a somewhat pleasant herb flavor. However, there is just something about this soup's textural nature that makes it taste less like tomato soup and more like spaghetti sauce. Is it good? Yes. Would I buy it again? I don't know; perhaps, if I needed something to toss my ravioli in.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup
Calories: 130
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 6%
Sodium: 690 mg, 29%
Carbohydrates: 26 grams
Fiber: 7 grams, 28%
Sugars:13 grams
Protein: 3 grams

However, let's look at the ingredient list: Tomato Puree (water, tomato paste), Water, Sugar, Soluble Corn Fiber, Soybean Oil, Cream, Basil and a few other minuscule items. Each 1 cup serving of Progresso High Fiber Creamy Tomato Basil Soup (2 servings per can) provides 130 calories, 4 grams of total fat which includes 1 gram of saturated fat, 29% of the daily value for sodium, 7 grams of fiber (28% of the DV), 13 grams of sugars and 3 grams of protein.

I love the high fiber; that's something Pacific Natural Foods Organic Creamy Tomato Light Sodium Soup and Pacific Natural Foods Organic Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup don't have. But what they do have is a superbly seasoned tomato soup - and that's something Progresso High Fiber Creamy Tomato Basil Soup hasn't quite got down yet.

Progresso Soups were 3 for $5 when I decided to give their High Fiber Creamy Tomato Basil Soup a try. If you are truly in the mood for this particular soup, you can buy a jar of spaghetti sauce that is about twice the size for the same price and eating experience. My suggestion: get your fiber elsewhere and for a truly fantastic tomato soup experience, go with either of the 2 Pacific Natural soups previously mentioned.
