Rated 4 out of 5 by BornInSF from Flavorful Soups These are rather expensive for the quantity (more than $20/quart), but they are very good. I agree with other reviewers that the chicken in the Elephant's Cure soup was rather dry & overcooked; however, the flavor of the soup itself was very good. My only real complaint is that one cannot order multiples of the particular soup I prefer, but rather I have to order in the threesome specified. Since these are specially made for each order, I do not understand why the individual soups cannot be ordered in multiples of three. I an ordering one more time, but probably won't spend the money again until/unless I can order three of one type.Date published: 2017-01-17Rated 5 out of 5 by lonbon from Best soups ever! I am a cook and fussy and I have to say that these are some of the best soups I've ever had. They were a Christmas gift from a friend and I plan to give them this year. My husband and I both thought all of the soups were terrific. Great meal with some crusty bread and a small salad. I did not find the chicken to be overcooked as one reviewer said. Chicken in soups often gets a bit more done because of reheating but these were exceptionally tasty soups. Great job!!!Date published: 2016-06-28Rated 5 out of 5 by evie78 from delicious ready to eat meal Our sons moved out of state recently and they haven't settled in to cooking for themselves yet. I saw these online and decided to send to them. They said all the soups were delicious and I could send them more anytime :)Date published: 2016-01-15Rated 4 out of 5 by luv2cook4all from Loved two of the soups I would have given 5 stars for the Mushroom and Mama Leone soups. The third one was good but the chicken was over cooked. It may just have only been this batch as the Mama Leone and Elephants Cure both have poached chicken but the Mama Leone had tender juicy chicken and a superior broth. Like another reviewer I could not discern the flavor profile but I didn't care. The mushroom soup was also very good. I will buy again.Date published: 2015-11-14Rated 5 out of 5 by sudeme from Pure Pleasure in Taste Very hearty and hits the spot as far as keeping you full and just right when you don't want a huge meal. Heart warming nice for the dinner meal. Will purchase again, soon.Date published: 2015-10-29Rated 5 out of 5 by alyp from Tasty Soup Loved all three soups. Will definitely order again.Date published: 2015-07-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Pbiss from Delicious soups. I normally don't like soups made by other people (even most restaurants), but decided to give these a shot. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised and so glad I tried them. They were delicious and tasted homemade. I would definitely reorder and would recommend them to anyone. They had quality ingredients, just enough seasoning and were simple enough that anyone could like them.Date published: 2014-12-25Rated 4 out of 5 by allisa4757 from Good Quality and Fresh These arrived yesterday, fully frozen. I was concerned they may have thawed but they did not. They are well packaged. I had the Italian chicken soup last night and found it to be full bodied and really very flavorful with a taste I can not identify in the both. It may be turmeric. I ordered these for my 90 yo mother this morning. I can not comment on the other two soups, but will update later.Date published: 2014-11-15
