Soup is one of those meals that is perfect for the cold winter weather and this is exactly how I found myself purchasing a packet of Heller's new soup range, specifically the Pumpkin & Smokey Bacon flavour. I chose the Pumpkin & Smokey Bacon flavour because Pumpkin is one of my favourite soup flavours and reminds me of something warm, like freshly roasted pumpkins straight out of the oven and what doesn't bacon go with, this had to be good. I'm a big fan of all of Heller's other products and I love to try new things so when I saw these in the chilled food section with all the other fresh soups at the supermarket, I thought "What the heck" and grabbed a packet for dinner.
Usually I avoid most chunky soups because you can never really tell what the chunky things are supposed to be but with this Pumpkin & Smokey Bacon soup you can very easily tell what each mouthful contains based on the look, texture and the flavour. This is seriously unheard of with every other chunky soup I've ever tried and was a huge plus for my husband and me. My husband even commented saying that this was probably the best soup he'd ever tried.
We decided to serve our soup with some cheese on toast this time but usually we use toasted garlic pita with cheese melted inside. We also added a big dollop of creme fraiche, which also tastes amazing. While the soup was absolutely delicious on it's own, these two additions made it to die for. Since it was so good, my husband and I have made it a regular meal in our home and have it at least once a fortnight. We haven't tried it on the kids yet mainly because we want to be selfish and have it all for ourselves but also because I suspect they wont enjoy it as much as we have with the chunky food, even though they can see what it is. One day I'll work up the courage to let them try some and I'll be prepared to finish any of their leftovers too!
Now that I know I like the Pumpkin & Smokey Bacon flavour, I think we'll be trialling the other flavours over the next few weeks to see if they are just as good. I'm especially interested in the Roast Chicken & Bacon flavour. Yum!
