Progresso has a wonderfully delicious way to help us out with our new year's resolutions! With 40 flavors of Progresso Soup Light and each serving 100 calories or less, they are a great way to curb cravings while satisfying your palate. ;)
Progresso sent me several flavors to try out and on a cold winter night...true story by the way, since our apartment has central heating and its one of those old apartments where they barely ever turn the heat on and even when its on, its basically useless...lol, I got sidetracked. Anyways, on a cold winter night, I mentioned to my SO, "I can't believe how cold it is! Wouldn't hot soup be wonderful right now?" He goes, "We have soup??" I say, "Yep, Progresso sent us some to try." With that, we grabbed one of my favorites "New England Clam Chowder" and heated it up in a matter of minutes on the stovetop and hot, delicious, heaven, here we come! I think my favorite thing about these soups is that they are a maximum 100 calories per serving. Clam Chowder was 100 calories per serving and the can is 2 servings so a total of 200 calories but it was split between two people so not too bad, I'd say. I also liked how there was quite a bit of vegetables in the can and there were little chunks of clam. I wouldn't say its a lot but its not really a tiny amount either. By now, we've tried two other flavors and they have both been 70 calories per serving and both cans were also packed full of veggies.
Progresso has also brought back the "Souper You Debut" Contest that goes on from Jan 3-March 16.
