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.

Sick Christmas.......

                                                 Christmas


So it wasn't exactly what I expected. We went to my brothers' house in Salt Lake for Christmas Eve dinner, which wasn't really what I expected. I thought that we would get to hang out, visit, eat, and let the "kids" open their presents. Yeah right, I think that I said two words to my brothers wife the whole time I was there. Needless to say we sat on the couch{for 3-4 hours}, had the kids open a few of their presents and drove the two hours back home.




 Chucky wasn't really excited about his Christmas presents from Santa. I thought that he would be jumping for joy{literally} when he saw that Santa had brought him a "high quality" camera. Boy was I wrong. He acted like he didn't even get it.





Come to find out{lucky for him} that he wasn't feeling well, apparently the long drive up to Salt Lake, the long visit, the long drive home, and not to mention that Santa woke him up about 1 hour after he fell asleep could make a kid not feel so good. He was coughing, had a fever, and it was Christmas.


I hope that you all had a memorable Christmas and have a memorable New Year!

note: this is not the only present Chucky got. After he opened the "high quality" camera, I took video of the rest of the present opening. Yeah I know I am a horrible mother, I didn't get any pictures of my son opening the other presents that he got;{ He did get way to much though!
