I was told to stay away from canned soups mostly because of all the sodium....I have CAD and highblood pressure. But everynow and then I buy the new Progresso 100 cal soups which have lower sodium. I am caregiver for my disabled husband and my Dad and Mom and when I am on the run, I would rather eat a bowl of the Progresso soups than not eat anything or eat the first thing that I can get my hands on. I really like the Chicken and Dumpling soup. Try it and see what you think..just don't eat a lot of them.

I like Progresso soups. I stock up when they are on special, and keep them at the office for a quick lunch when I didn't have time to put anything together to bring with me. Lentil is my favorite.

as far as sodium - I don't eat very much processed foods, so if I eat canned soup for lunch, I just make sure that's the only prepared food I eat that day.

I tried the high fiber minestrone. It was okay. Not sure if it was low cal.

Progresso Light Chicken Noodle and Beef Pot Pie. I really like the Chicken Noodle, the Beef, not so much but I've gotten so far off red meat over the last few years it just tastes odd to me now. I like throwing any leftover veggies in the soup.

I like to buy soups (low sodium and low calorie ones). I then add frozen vegetables to add substance and make them more filling. YUMMY !!

No. We haven't bought soups in years. We make our own.

I like their soups when I don't have time for home made soup.

i like their soups, all of the many flavors. even the more caloric soups are like 200 a serving, so go for the flavor you like and watch your side dishes.

No, not many canned soups I really like. When I have time and I'm interested in soup, I find a good and healthy recipe and make it from scratch. But I understand we don't always have time, so I hope if and when you try it you like it. I would purchase only one can to start just encase you don't like it though. Keep up the good work :o) emoticon

Has anyone tried the new low cal Progresso Soups? If so, which ones and what did you think? I am eyeing the Chicken Pot Pie and wondered about it! Looks good for a winter lunch!
