I love soup. I eat soup in the summer, fall, winter, day and night. I love it in a cup in a bowl with cracker and without. I’m trying to cut back on calories and keep my weight down especially with the holidays and winter coming it’s an easy add on of 10 lbs before New Years if I don’t.
Progresso® Light soups are serving up rich and creamy flavors, and for those of us who don’t want to splurge on calories the new creamy flavors, are only 100 calories per serving, now you can indulge in warm, creamy soups like Light Creamy Potato with Bacon and Cheese* and Light Chicken Pot Pie Style* without feeling guilty.

I was given the opportunity to try out the creamy potato with bacon and cheese. While I’m use to a thick flavorful soup and love adding my own bacon bits and shredded cheese to the top we all know that if we are watching calories that certainly won’t help.
I loved the chunky potatoes and the flavor of the soup was pretty good but for me I thought the soup was a bit thin. I added salt to flavor as I usually do with soup but of course this changes the flavor a bit too. All in all I think the soup was okay but honestly it wasn’t for me.
Hubby tried the Light Chicken Pot Pie and said that with salt and pepper it wasn’t half bad. He said it was full of hearty vegetables as well as chicken and was perfect for a light lunch although he did add crackers.
We don’t normally eat low cal soups so this was a change for both of us so please keep that in mind.
