Good soup, bad instructions These are the instructions on the cup: "Remove fresh flavor packet. Add water to fill line. Stir. Microwave 1 min 40 seconds. Stir. Cover. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir & Enjoy." Until I saw this site, I had no idea when to dump the flavor packet in. I ended up sticking it in at the end. I don't cook often. I think the instructions should be clearer about when the packet gets dumped in, just in case it effects stir-ability or taste. Unless it doesn't matter, and then they should at least say that. It did not seem to make a difference in flavor, but it was clumpy and hard to stir when I put it in at that point. It did taste good, though. ...more info
McDougall's Pea Soup I didn't know I liked pea soup. I thought I hated it, but after reading all the positive reviews I decided to try it. The reviewers here are right! It's really tasty, with a smoky flavor- and it satisfies my lunchtime hunger....more info
good soup this soup is delicious, but i have a couple complaints with the packaging:
1. the soup is not a 'one-step' preparation thing as most instant soups are. when you peel back the lid, there's a packet of spices inside that you must remove and open, and pour into the cup, before you add hot water. i always seem to spill this powder onto my countertops, as the 'tear line' isnt clean either. i don't understand why this additional spice packet is not just in the cup of soup to begin with, as it is dry powder just like the soup mix. weird.
2. there are two servings per container! this makes no sense to me, as i can't possibly imagine someone eating half the soup cup and saving the rest for later. it looks to me like a marketing gimmick to make the soup appear to have fewer calories, sodium and carbohydrates than it actually does. (one soup package gives you 240 cal, 600mg sodium and 42g carbohydrates)
For Dried cup-o-soup: FIVE STARS We all know no packaged soup--canned or cuppa--is gonna be as delicious as the fresh, home-made stuff. Still, convenience is worth a bit of sacrifice, for those rushed or lazy days. I ordered this because 1. I like split pea, it's like a filling, comfort soup and 2 I wanted to try a vegan soup (no ham or the other stuff that they usually put in pea soup).
I didn't expect much. I expected ADEQUATE, no more.
Well, surprise me. This was TASTY. I am very pleased with this dried/cup soup. If you follow instructions precisely, it should come out with a terrific texture (not too runny, not too thick) and a nice pea flavor. My only quibble is that it's on the salty side (though not eye-crossingly so).
I would definitely get more of this. I'm gonna go through this case pretty fast, I can tell you.
I'm ready to try more of McDougall's vegan soups. If others are as good or better than the Vegan Split Pea with Barley, then I'm in for some nice convenience lunches.
Each container has 240 calories (that's considered two servings, but please, who eats just half?), 10 grams of fiber, 16 grams of protein, 1 gram of fat (no trans fats), and 42 carbs. The sodium count is 600mg. 24% of Vitamin A requirement.
Awesome soup! This is really great soup, healthy, not full of any junk, all around a winner! My 15 year old daughter loves it too!...more info
most excellent i really like this a lot. it is ready without much trouble and it makes a great, filling soup....more info
RICH, DELICIOUS, SATISFYING This is one of my favorite Dr. McDougall's soups. Fantastic flavor that tastes homemade, thick and creamy, larger size cup. Contains healthy "real" ingredients -- no fakes or chemicals. It always tastes fresh -- never tastes like the carton as some other dry soup cups do. I sometimes add a little frozen or canned corn, which also helps to cool it down faster. NOTE: Contains 300mg of sodium PER SERVING, and the label says this cup contains 2 servings. So you're really getting 600mg of sodium if you eat the whole cup -- and who doesn't? But that's still a lot less sodium than even the "healthy" canned soups contain....more info
Yum! This soup is so good and low in fat. Remember that the cup is two servings but it's big so it fills you up with only a couple hundred calories. I've tried many McDougall's soups and this one, taking calories into consideration is pretty darn good. Once it's ready just crack some pepper in there and you're ready to go!...more info
Very tasty in a meal-size portion This is a very tasty soup for a dehydrated-then-reconstituted product--better than other similar brands I've tried, and all natural too. Plus I like the larger size (it IS available in a smaller size as well) for making a meal out of the soup. This along with some crackers and fruit makes a convenient lunch for those dining-at-the-desk days....more info
pea soup I love this stuff, but, it does not love me. Tends to give gas. Does anyone know of a vegetarian split pea that doesn't?...more info
