V8 SouthWestern Corn Soup Review

V8 SouthWestern Corn SoupCampbells says that for their V8 SouthWestern Corn Soup, they "take the mild sweetness of yellow corn and balance it with roasted peppers for a friendly little kick in the taste buds. No artificial flavors. No preservatives. Just the delicious, vibrant taste of a full serving of vegetables."

I don't think I could adequately describe how GOOD this soup is. V8 SouthWestern Corn Soup is full bodied, creamy, with a little spicy kick at the end of a mouthful. I was very skeptical about drinking "corn" soup - I don't like creamed corn - but this blew all doubts out of the water. I must confess though that I added a pinch of salt. This filled me up for lunch - I had the entire box which is 2 servings, and a few crackers. Forget all those Progresso & Campbell's condensed soups. After having this you will literally throw them out.

Each 18.3 ounce box of V8 SouthWestern Corn Soup has 2 servings. Each serving (1 cup) provides 150 calories, 3 grams of total fat including 0.5 grams of saturated fat (5% and 3% of the RDA), 26% of the daily value for sodium (620 mg), 3 grams of protein and 26 grams of total carbohydrates which includes 7 grams of sugars and 2 grams of fiber (9% of the RDA).

I'm really disappointed about the amount of sodium and I wish they would work on reducing this. The ingredients were totally in evidence - lots of corn, and a few roasted red peppers. First V8 wowed me by expanding their line to include V8V- Fusion and now they are wowing me again with this soup. V8 soups retail for about $2.99 and it's totally worth every penny.
