I was recently sent some samples of a new type of cup a soup made by Heinz.
Called Squeeze and Stir , these new range of on the go instant soups are ideal for taking to work to keep you full and satisfied at lunch time, or at home if you need a quick warming and filling snack.
Unlike the more well known cup a soups, instead of being a powder these new ones from Heinz are a paste - like tomato puree to begin with, therefore, making them seem a nicer soup in a mug before you have even tasted them.
This is how easy they are to prepare:
Tear top of the sachet and squeeze the puree in to a mug of your choice
Add 50 ml of boiling water and stir well with a tea spoon
Top up with a further 130ml of boiling water and stir and then enjoy (although taking care as boiling water can burn your mouth!!)
These soups are available in four yummy flavours including minestrone and cream of tomato. Owing to them being made from a concentrated puree, the soups really do taste very nice and are lovely and thick and filling.another good thing about these Squeeze and Stir soups is that they count as 1 of your 5 a day, contain zero artificial flavours, colours or preservatives or MSG.
I tried the Minestrone and the Mediterranean Vegetable varieties and they really are very nice. I love soup and if I haven't made any myself, I often keep some cup a soups in my kitchen in the winter months as a lunchtime filler. These soups from Heinz are as good, if not slightly better, then the market leader in these products, and I really do recommend them if you also like cup a soups.
Available in supermarkets now these Heinz Squeeze and Stir sachets are handy to keep in your food cupboard and ideal to have for a fast and warming mug of delicious Heinz soup.
I was sent these samples to review because I like soup and the opinions and comments made in this post are my own.
