REVIEW: Smart Soup – Delicious Gluten Free Soups in Delectable Varieties
Savvy Saving Couple

Lately, I have been realizing that living a gluten free lifestyle can be challenging at times. I think the biggest hurdle for our family is when it comes to quick convenience foods. Currently, there are pretty much no fast food joints, and only a handful of restaurants that cater to the gluten free lifestyle.
Thankfully, there are plenty of products that my family and I can enjoy at home. From certified gluten free meals, to soups; there are an abundance of delicious foods people living a gluten free lifestyle can purchase. Sure, they may take a little longer to prepare, but they are generally healthier choice.
We recently had the opportunity to review some healthy, gluten free soups. To be honest, I am not a soup person at all because I have a weird crunch factor thing. I have to have crunchy foods in my meals so soups generally do not work. However, after visually checking out all the amazing soups that Smart Soup sent us, I was willing to give them a taste-what did I have to lose?
A Little about Smart Soup:
Before getting the fantastic chance to test all of the current 7 flavors of Smart Soup, I had never heard of this gem of a company. Their mission is one that is close to my heart. They wanted to break the mold of conventional soup brands, and create a product that had only natural ingredients. So ultimately, when you read their soup labels you can actually pronounce everything pretty cool huh?
All of their products are:
- Vegan and vegetarian
- American Heart Association Certified,
which means they low are in sodium, fat and cholesterol
- Gluten free
- All natural
- No preservatives
- Good source of fiber
French Lentil Soup-delicious!
Ok, so I bet you would love to know why Smart Soup is so good..dare I say that? Ok, so I admit, I ate, and enjoyed soup..the very thing I thought I despised. I guess a key winning factor (besides my whole crunch issue) was that they were actually so tasty! The exotic flavors are some that I would otherwise NEVER have thought to even put in soup.
Check out why I was transported around the world with each bowl of soup I ate:
- French Lentil
- Greek Minestrone
- Indian Bean Masala
- Moroccan Chick Pea
- Santa Fe Corn Chowder
- Thai Coconut Curry
- Vietnamese Carrot Lemongass
Never in a million years would I think that I would try such gourmet, and ethnic soup varieties, and actually fall in love with them. I cannot get enough of the Moroccan Chick Pea, and Santa Fe Corn Chowder Smart Soup! I love the bold flavors, and the fresh taste each soup possesses. It is also great to know that these soups are a “smart” choice because they are healthy, and gluten free.
The neatest thing is, Smart Soup comes with TWO 10 oz bags of soup. They are made to be stored in the freezer, and are very easy to defrost, and prepare. You simply pop them into the microwave, and can enjoy them at work, or home. They are great options for those days when you want a hearty, healthy meal!
Overall, I give Smart Soup 5 stars for some tasty, satisfying, and healthy soups. I also love that they are gluten free because that means my entire family can enjoy them.
