As we approach the lunch hour, I can’t help but think of soup on this chilly winter day. With the temperatures dropping, there’s nothing like a bowl of soup to bring comfort and warmth. From chicken noodle to tomato, if my bowl is full of vegetables and warm broth, you can guarantee that I will enjoy spoonful after spoonful. So, when DOLE sent me packages of their Garden Soup product, I couldn’t help but enthusiastically open the packages and taste test.
As you know, I’m all about making time spent in the kitchen simple and enjoyable. Let’s face it, food doesn’t have to be complicated to taste good. Usually, I opt to make homemade soup by combining broth, vegetables, meat, and noodles. Even though it seems so easy, I know that some people are weary of trying to make their own soup. Why buy tons of products and spend additional time in the kitchen when opening a package is so much easier?
Don’t worry. I get it. I’ve got your back. I also have a great product that you are going to love. Imagine a soup product that is non-GMO, has no preservatives and MSG, is vegetarian, gluten-free, cholesterol free, low fat, and good source of fiber, and has BPA-free packaging. Sound too good to be true? Feast your eyes on DOLE Garden Soup, a new premium line of ready-to-serve soups inspired by garden-fresh flavors that starts with nature’s best ingredients like sun-ripened tomatoes, sweet corn, and roasted poblano pepper.
I told you I had your back.
