Have you ever tried New England Country Soup? It goes perfectly with my gluten-free bread recipe. 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, nor as convenient nor as environmentally responsible as they could be (not to mention very high in sodium!).

New England Country Soups come in eight different all-natural flavors including Chicken Corn Chowder, Yankee White Bean, Nana’s Chicken Soup, New England Clam Chowder, Chicken Pomodoro, Caribbean Black Bean, Lentil and Sweet Chicken Curry. Each variety is in a handy microwaveable pouch.
They really stand behind their claim that the ingredients are all-natural. You can use their ingredient tracker to find out just where each of the ingredients in their soups comes from. This way you can see the farm, field, or ocean from which each ingredient in each pouch of our great soup is sourced.
I checked the ingredients and was extremely pleased to see that the ingredients really are natural. There wasn’t anything I couldn’t easily identify and nothing at all that’s artificial. That’s not the case with many soups. We don’t use a microwave so I was pleased to see that each soup could be heated on the stovetop as well. Many canned soups are very high in sodium but I was happy to see that the soups by New England Country Soup use lower sodium sea salt instead of traditional salt.
I’ve never made a Caribbean Black Bean soup or a Chicken Pomodoro soup so I couldn’t compare those to homemade taste. I can tell you that their Chicken Corn Chowder is just as tasty as my homemade version and I’ve been told that I’m a very good cook so that tells you something right there. It has real chunks of easily identifiable foods in it and was nice and thick and creamy. All the varieties I tasted were easily better than the competition’s versions in my opinion. I love that they’re lower in sodium!
The soup comes totally ready in the package. Each package serves 2 people which is comparable to one of the big cans of soup. In my area, I can find New England Country Soup at Hannaford and soon at Shaw’s. Use their store locator to find a store in your area.
