As chilled winds swirl pools of gold and russet leaves about our bootie-clad feet, our thoughts turn to... you thought I was going to say PSL, but no. I’m here to talk about soup. Yes, my friends, soup season is upon us. With the first crisp days of the season, I want nothing more than to come home to a steaming bowl of wholesome goodness. But who is going to cook it for me?
A large food manufacturer, that’s who. We’re looking at the kind of shelf-stable, heat-and-serve meals you can stock your pantry with -- soups that will love you back (ish) when you come home after a long, hard day in the cold, harsh world. We at Thrillist have taken upon ourselves the task of finding the yummiest broths out there.
But then the topic of sodium came up. As in, Blessed Little Lord Baby Jesus and His Youthful Cardiovascular System does packaged soup have a whole lot of sodium. Some ready-to-eat versions pack in up to 800mg per one-cup serving. And are you really going to limit yourself to just one cup? We doubt it! That’s not how we do soup in this country.
