Progresso High Fiber Soup Review & Giveaway

I was offer to try the Progresso High Fiber Homestyle Minestrone Soup through MyBlogSpark. On Saturday, I received the package containing the soup and the following day I gave it a try.

I’ve never tried the Progresso Minestrone or any other type of Minestrone soup. So, I wonder how would it taste without no meat. I’ve always ate my soups with meat like chicken or beef, but never with just vegetables.

In the back of my mind I knew I was not going to like it at all, but when I started to cook it on the stove top the aroma of the vegetables and spices were delightful. If it smells this good maybe it’s not so bad. I tried it out I can only say it wasn’t bad at all I wouldn’t mind eating it again.

The Progresso High Fiber Home Style Minestrone soup is an excellent source of fiber, it has full serving of vegetables, it has 110 calories per serving, no msg added, and no artificial flavors. Besides the Minestrones, Progresso has the following varieties Chicken Tuscany, Creamy Tomato Basil, Hearty Vegetable and Noodles in High Fiber.

I forgot to mention when I received the package along with the soup there were two soups mugs and two spoons. Thanks to MyBlogSpark I can host a giveaway.

For a chance to win a prize pack answer the following question. How do you try to incorporate more fiber into your diet? Add your answer in the comment section, if you leave an answer that is not relevant to the question you are disqualify. This is the main entry.
