Usually good broccoli and cheese soup uses mostly the top part of the broccoli, the teeny little green buds. These guys used the whole thing. Somehow, the stems were incredibly numerous, and either very stringy, and very woody. It totally ruined the experience, and made the soup very unpleasant to eat.
I figured it was a fluke, and brought the Mulligatawny with me today for lunch. When I tried it in sample form, it was excellent and the spices weren't overbearing at all. This soup, unfortunately, was even worse than the Broccoli Cheese, which really stumped me because the sample had been to die for! I did nothing to the soup apart from heat it up.
The soup was practically flavourless, with nothing apart from an unpleasant burning aftertaste from whatever curry or spice they used. The texture was the worst part, the "broth" was so think I would nearly border on saying it was thick like paste, but I didn't want to add water to it for fear it would drown out whatever tiny bits of flavour were there. The chicken and vegetables were soft and mushy. I eventually have up, and after a few bites, disposed of the 90% of the soup that was left.
I will update this review when I try the other two soups, but of right now, these soups get two big thumbs down. I enjoy canned soup more than this, and for half the price, so will my wallet!
P.S. Blogger is being a pain, and I cannot upload photos at the moment. Will do so as soon as I am able.
