New England Country Soup Giveaway 5 pouches! Winners Choice! 2/29

New England Country Soup was founded by three “foodies” frustrated with the traditional soup products on store shelves… they were neither as delicious nor as nutritious as homemade, and neither as convenient nor as environmentally responsible as they could be (not to mention very high in sodium!).  New England Country soups are made with Great Ingredients! They have a Great Taste and  Good for you! I received three pouches of New England Country soup for this review and one Moms Own Words reader will win 5 soups of their choice! 

New England Country Soup Review

The Nana’s chicken soup contains the following ingredients: Water, Onions, Celery, Cooked White Chicken Meat, Tomatoes, Spinach, Arborio Rice, Cannellini Beans, Rice Starch, Chicken Stock, Olive Oil, Garlic, Lower Sodium Sea Salt, Black Pepper.  The rice starch must be used as a thickener – otherwise these are all ingredients that you would find in a typical homemade soup.

The soup has a nice homemade taste and true to their word the sodium content was very low! The actual amount is 350 mg per 1 cup. For a prepared soup that is unheard of! I would much rather add a little bit of my own salt and pepper (which I admit I did) than eat a salty soup with too much sodium. (To compare, I looked at a soup that I had in my cabinet. Get this. The soup’s label read 25% less sodium, and it contained a whopping 750 mg per 1 cup serving. Yikes!)

I don’t often eat soup with cannellini beans, but I thought it was a creamy, flavorful soup! It’s healthy too at only 120 calories per cup and 4 grams of fiber, 7 grams of protein, 3.5 grams of fat and only 2 grams of sugar. I was impressed with the nutritional information.

I haven’t tried the New England Clam Chowder or the Chicken Corn chowder yet, but I can tell you that these are all natural soups that are just as low in sodium.

Soup flavors includes:

  • New England Clam Chowder – full of flavorful clams in a rich cream sauce with potatoes and onions… finished with dill and a hint of nutmeg.
  • Yankee White Bean - a spicy blend of three beans (yankee, great northern and cannellini), chicken and jalapeno peppers.
  • Chicken Corn Chowder – made with coriander and a little cayenne pepper for a small “kick”.
  • Chicken Pomodoro - has a little “zest” (though not hot-spicy) and blends chicken, basil and tomatoes.
  • Nana’s Chicken Soup: a comforting blend of chicken, arborio rice, spinach, cannellini beans and a hint of garlic.
  • Caribbean Black Bean: a succulent combination of black beans, bell peppers, cumin, allspice and a touch of jalapenos for a “small kick” … truly a break from the usual!
  • Lentil: delicious Pardina lentils with loads of spinach and tomatoes.
  • Sweet Chicken Curry – filled with chicken, tomatoes, carrots, apples, raisins and basmati rice. This jam-packed, delicious soup is bursting with healthy flavor!

New England Country Soup Challenge

New England Country Soups is holding a soup challenge that anyone can enter! The entry deadline is Feb. 12th!

To put their soups to the test, Cambridge based New England Country Soup launched their second annual Soup Challenge™ on Nov. 1 2011.  The Soup Challenge™ is a cooking competition that will give New England residents the opportunity to enter their homemade soup recipes in a head-to-head taste and nutrition test against a New England Country Soup flavor of their choice.

The Soup Challenge™ was created to demonstrate to consumers that the eight New England-inspired New England Country Soup recipes are as delicious and nutritious as their own homemade recipes and great alternatives when consumers simply don’t have the time to prepare soup from scratch.  From November 1 through February 12, 2012, New England residents can enter the Soup Challenge™ at

Five finalist’s homemade recipes will be chosen, three by peer vote and two by recipe creativity, to prepare their recipes for a panel of local, accomplished “foodies”.  The judges will score each recipe on taste, and each recipe will receive a nutritional analysis from an independent group of food scientists. Taste and nutrition scores will be combined and each recipe will receive an overall score comparing its taste and nutritional profile to that of its New England Country Soup competitor.  One winner will be selected and win a “food oriented splurge getaway.” The event will be held on March 11 at Le Cordon Bleu, also located in Cambridge.
