Product Name: Amy's Kitchen Chunky Vegetable Soup
Product Description: A 14.3 ounce can of organic vegetable soup.
Brand: Amy's Kitchen
Offer price: 2.49
Amount of Vegetables
Amy’s chunky vegetable soup is a nice quick meal that fills you up but doesn’t bring many calories to the party.
Overall the soup tastes fine but is way too high in sodium.
Lots of Veggies.
High Sodium Content.
Amy’s Organic has a Chunky Vegetable Soup that I wanted to try. The soup is low in fat and calories and loaded with veggies. This is the exact combination that my belly is in need of these days!
I saw that the soup had nice online reviews so I bought a can and ate the soup for lunch.
Chunky Vegetable Soup Nutrition, Ingredients and Labelling
Let’s take a closer look at what comes in this 14 ounce can.
A serving of this soup is the full can.
The nutrition facts for the can of soup are:
- Calories: 130
- Fat: 2.5g (3% DV)
- Cholesterol: 0mg (0% DV)
- Sodium: 1200mg (52% DV)
- Carbohydrates: 22g (8% DV)
- Protein: 4g
While I love that this soup only has 130 calories and 2.5 grams of fat, I am bummed out that it is LOADED with salt.
The soup has the following ingredients:
- Diced tomato
- Green beans
- Black pepper
All of the ingredients are labeled as Organic.
Additionally, the company website lists the soup as:
- Gluten free
- Dairy free
- Lactose free
- Tree nut free
- Plant based
I was a little disappointed that the soup does not contain any potatoes. I always thought that potatoes were a standard ingredient in vegetable soup but I guess you can make it any way you want.
How Does Amy’s Kitchen Chunky Vegetable Soup Taste?
I heated this soup up in the microwave (3 minutes on High) and had it for lunch.
The overall flavor is what you would expect for a vegetable soup but I had two points of concern:
- I could really taste all of the salt.
- The vegetables are not chunky.
The vegetable pieces were really small which seemed absurd in a soup that is labelled as “chunky”. I had a similar experience with Amy’s product description not matching the product content with Amy’s Organic Spicy Vegetarian Chili where there wasn’t any chili in the soup.
Overall I liked the soup but will not be buying it again simply based on the sodium content. Amy’s Kitchen does have a low sodium version of this soup that I might try one day.
Other Reviews from Target Customers
Let’s take a look at what other customers think about this condiment.
When I checked out the reviews for this soup on Target’s website I saw that there were just a few number of reviews (33 as of October, 2021) and 94% of them were either 5 or 4 Stars.
There were also a few reviewers, 6%, who really disliked this soup and left it a 1 or 2 Star review.
Some of the positive comments reviewers left include:
- Delicious!! I was very impressed that this is just a canned soup!
- I’m absolutely hooked on the soup it’s very low in calories and gives you a nice shot of vegetables and fiber.
- Good value for a hearty and tasty low calorie organic soup.
The only negative comment reviewers left was:
- Very tomato taste. Which makes sense because it’s a tomato soup. Just could not enjoy it. But if you like tomato, you’ll like this.
In general it looks like most people enjoy this soup and do not share my concerns about the salt content or size of the vegetable pieces.
