My new fave: Trader Joes ready-made soup!

How much do I love Trader Joes? Let me count the ways: (1) they offer products that are usually JUST what I'm looking for (latest ingredients, or combos of my fave things), (2) are reasonably priced, (3) are healthier than regular grocery store products since they typically have less fillers and preservatives, and (4) I usually have pretty good luck finding ready-made items that are FAQ-friendly!

Today's discovery: Creamy corn and roasted pepper soup. Chicken broth-free, carrot- and celery-free, kosher and dairy-free! Nice balanced flavor with no need to add anything else, smooth and quick to heat for a cold day! I am accustomed to buying these soups for others when I'm making dinner -- they're creamy, tasty and ready to use. Also, they're mild enough to garnish with other flavors if you wanted to get sorta fancy for a dinner party.

The color was a little green, but hey it was tasty and ready-made so I gratefully gulped it down. Ah. (Note although it is gluten-, dairy-, fish-, soy- and nut-free, it is processed in a facility that processes those as well if you're super sensitive). If not, look for it at your local Trader Joes!

Their butternut squash soup is good too. I think it's gluten-free, hubby didn't react to it, but best to check the label.

Thanks Maggie, I'll look into that as well. Since it's soup season, I'm sure they'll be expanding.

Maggie, BUMMER, the butternut squash has soy milk in it. So I'm outta luck, thanks. :(
