Thanks to Blount and Tryazon for providing goodies for this post. All opinions my own.
Fall will be here soon, and the perfect fall food must be soup! Warm, cozy, and tasty.
Today I want to introduce you to a line of soups that may be new to you — at least, it was new to me: Blount Organic Soups.
Blount Organic Soup
A little about Blount: the company isn’t new; it’s been around since 1946. They’re currently producing over 900 products for restaurants and stores nation-wide.
- Blount soups are fresh or frozen — never canned
- They use the finest ingredients, locally-sourced when possible, and they make their soups in small batches
- All Blount soups are 200 calories or less per serving
- I love the soup containers — they are nice for re-using. They feature a “cool grip” near the rim which makes them easy to grab from the microwave without burning your fingers.
- The soups I tested were vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free. They were perfect for my vegetarian daughter (she especially liked the tomato soup), but the rest of the family loved them as well! Although they were not the focus of this event, chicken noodle and chicken tortilla soups are also made by Blount.
I brought some of the soups to a get-together, where they were quite well-received. Each variety was flavorful and delicious — they look and taste homemade, but you can keep it your little secret that they came from a container (and speaking of containers, those are really nice. I kept mine and am reusing them). These soups are great for a “home cooked” dinner on a day where there just wasn’t a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. I have quite a few of those types of days, and I’m betting you do as well.
One issue you may have is finding these soups. Here is a link to help you locate them in your area — in mine, I found them at Earth Fare. It was a pretty neat, organic-focused store that I had never even heard of before. They are found in the refrigerated section.
