Progresso Soup Review & Giveaway....CLOSED





Progresso Soup is not only the first soup that you think of when you want to eat soup, it is also a staple in the pantry of every home.

The History of Progresso
Over 100 years ago, the business now known as Progresso Foods started. A young Sicilian, Vincent Taormina, first imported foods from Italy to meet the need for high-quality ingredients familiar to Italian-Americans.

As more family members became involved and importing grew both in volume and locations, the business merged in 1927 to become the Progresso Italian Food Corporation and the Progresso label was born.


Our story is about quality:
We craft all our soups, broths and foods from authentic recipes using only the highest quality ingredients. We are dedicated to make better soup better for you. We believe that food should be delicious and there is no reason that delicious food can't fit within your diet. At Progresso, we love great food. It's been our passion for more thatn 50 years.

In addition to the 75 great flavors of  Progresso soup, there are now 4 great tasting Progresso soups that have 28% less of your daily fiber intake per serving (7 grams) and have no added MSG or artificial flavors.
The new varieties include:
Chicken Tuscany
Creamy Tomato Basil
Hearty Vegetable & Noodles
Homestyle Minestrone

I received the Homestyle Minestrone soup, soup spoons, and really cute soup bowls with the Progresso name on both the soup spoons and bowls.

I am really picky about my soups, and I loved the Progresso Homestyle Minestrone soup was delicious, it was hearty, full of vegetables, penne noodles, and the spices were perfect. I cooked it on the stovetop. I would buy this soup and recommend to my friends.

Pros:
-The soup was nice and hearty, it didn't taste as though I was eating fiber. It had plenty of vegetables, and noodles in it yet wasn't over done with too many veggies.
I liked the taste of it.
- The first ingredients listed on the can are: water, tomato paste, carrots, celery, kidney beans, potatoes, green beans, soluble corn, fiber, peas, and enriched penne pasta.


Cons:
There wasn't enough. Which isn't really true, it was filling, yet it was good enough that I wanted another bowl;}


Giveaway:
One Ma21cuteboy reader will win a can of Progresso Homestyle Minestrone soup, two soup spoons, and two generous soup bowls with the Progresso name on both the spoons and soup bowls.

I'd like to try the Creamy Tomato Basil, sounds yummy! I would whip up some homemade grilled cheese's to use as dunkers.

I like to sit and eat my soup when it's cold out....with crackers or bread or even grilled cheese. It makes you feel so warm when it's so cold outside.

Great giveaway!

I like to eat my soup with alot of crackers or cornbread, and usually with a sprinkle of grated cheese.

I love the Chicken Tuscany, but really need to get some veggies in and the Minestrone would do the trick.

Thanks!

I love Progresso soups and grilled cheese sandwiches - especially since the weather has cooled down. I love a simple tomato soup, but I can't wait to try the new tomato basil.

Chicken noodle is my favorite. I just heat it and eat it by itself. Maybe some crackers, but cooking something to eat with it ruins the simplicity the ready to eat soup :)

I favor the Homestyle Minestrone soup.
I like it in a big soup with a grilled cheese sandwich.
Oh yes and some crackers!

I like to eat the Progresso clam chowder coup with sourdough bread. I like to dip ripped off chunks of the bread into the soup..yum!!

My favorite is Chicken & Herb Dumpling, and it's so completely good, I just like a big glass of cold milk with it.

I love their Chicken Rotini Soup. It's one of my favorite lunches to eat at my desk with crackers. Nothing fancy, just good.
