I love both tomatoes and tomato soup. Recently, I came across a can of Progresso Reduced Sodium Tomato Parmesan Soup in the canned soups section of my favorite local grocery store. I decided to purchase it, try it out and write a food product review about the experience. Here is what I discovered!
Progresso Reduced Sodium Tomato Parmesan Soup is affordable. One can costs around two dollars and thirty cents. Each can has two servings in it. This soup is heart healthy and I liked that fact very much. It is low cal, low in fat, low in cholesterol, fiber rich and also low in sodium. What drew me to this soup was the combination of tomatoes and cheese. That sounded great to me. I could not wait to taste this soup!
With ingredients like tomatoes, onions, Parmesan cheese, Romano cheese and lots of spices and herbs, this soup seemed fabulous. It is perfect for microwave cooking and that is how I chose to prepare it. This can has an easy open flip top lid on it, so no can opener is needed. You do not need to add any water to this soup. I poured it into a large microwave safe bowl, covered, heated on high for a few minutes, uncovered, stirred well and served. This soup looked fantastic!
Progresso Reduced Sodium Tomato Parmesan Soup has a rich and flavorful broth that I love. I was delighted to see lots of tomatoes in this soup. Unfortunately, some of the tomatoes were a bit tough and some even had the skin on them. I was shocked and disappointed. This soup could be a winner if not for that fact. It is a major problem that is hard to overlook. The blend of tomato broth and cheese is very good. My only complaint is the tough tomatoes. That problem ruined it for me. I will not be buying this soup again. I rate it two stars out of five stars. I expected much better from the Progresso brand.
