I quite enjoy a yummy hot, wholesome soup sometimes especially over the cool Winter months, however I much prefer to purchase ready-made packaged soups at the supermarkets rather than make my own, as much as I enjoy a cup or bowl of soup it isn't something I want to end up with in bulk which would be the case if I was to make my own from scratch. I often buy Hellers products such as sausages and bacon so I was delighted when I saw that they had added fresh soup to their already amazing range of products.

I opted to review the roast chicken and bacon soup as chicken and bacon are always a favourite combination of mine and one that can never really go wrong. This particular soup comes in a clear plastic pouch which is able to stand upright perfectly in your fridge for ease of storage, I love how you can see through the plastic as this shows exactly what the product is like, I was happy to see right through the get-go chunks of chicken, bacon, and vegetables as this made it like a hearty and good quality soup as all too often soups can be very watery and not have a lot to them.

The first time I used this soup, funnily enough, was not as you would expect, as my partner works shift work a mixture of days and nights I often find myself rummaging around in the mornings before I head off to work trying to work out what to send him for dinner. This morning I found myself doing just that, I had left a handful of uncooked chicken tenderloins in the fridge to prepare him something this morning and on thinking of what to do I decided on a pie knowing that I had a sheet of flaky pastry also in the fridge waiting to be used up. My usual pie sauce ingredients weren't on hand so I decided to make up something a bit different, I chopped and fried up the chicken and then made up a sauce which consisted of about half a pouch of roast chicken and bacon soup, some thickened cream, salt and Raptor Rubs Vegetable and Lamb Sprinkle, once all cooked, thickened and heated through I popped this into the pastry to cook in my pie maker. I have just got off the phone to my partner who raved about his pies and said that the filling was very nice and full of flavour and that it tasted just like roast chicken and gravy and as though it had stuffing through it... I told him I'd used soup and he suggested I better buy the soup again. I have to agree with him the soup completed the pie, I also had one at work for lunch, adding in such a lovely flavour to it, I loved the taste of the thyme and was happy to see vegetables throughout it.

For dinner tonight I enjoyed the leftover soup with some buttered toast and found it to be delicious and creamy perfect for a quick meal there was plenty of chunks of bacon, chicken and vegetables throughout and the combination was great, however I did come across a few hard pieces which I believed were chicken bones so this was a slight concern as it is something I'd usually get Miss 5 to share with me. Other than this small issue the sauce was easy to heat taking just 3 minutes in the microwave.

A yummy soup great for an easy meal and one that I look forward to getting again, as well as others in the range. Well done Hellers on another great product.
