V8 Soup Review

Hi everyone, sorry I havent been blogging too much lately. You all know how it is when you have little ones and Halloween and birthdays and all the other goings on from the day to day. So I am trying to get back on track to my blog.
This morning my husband and I had a few errands to run and we had to run to the store to pick up a few things. I noticed a display of the V8 soups put out by campbell's soup. I picked up the golden squash and the garden vegetable. For breakfast I tried out the squash one, its very good. However do not expect a squash flavor to it otherwise you will be disappointed. I really liked it because even though I like squash it has too sweet of a flavor to it. The texture is very much like squash and so is the color. The soup is very vegetably tasting and very thick. Overall I really liked it but I can understand why some wouldn't like it. It needs a little spice like salt and pepper or garlic powder, something like that. Overall I give it probably 4 out of 5 stars simply because I liked the simplicity of it and how you can actually taste the vegetables instead of getting a pile of salty flavor in your mouth.
The box itself is difficult to open and very messy, you have to unfold the sides then cut a werid triangle on the arrows they give you to cut on and pinch the sides and watch out you better have a bowl or a pot ready because the stuff goes all over the place. It would be nice if it was packaged a little differently.
The store I bought this from had it on sale 2 for 5 dollars so its not terrible in price either. So my advice to you if you are someone who is not a fan of high salt soups, and not a fan of vegetable flavored soups you may not like this soup. The whole box is 140 calories and something like 430 mgs in sodium and its advertised as having 4 servings of veggies in it.
So give it a try and let me know what you think and leave a comment below. Take care everyone and until next time I hope you live, laugh and love.
