Progresso Light Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese & Chicken Pot Pie Soup Review

 I'm a big fan of soup.  After all I live in an area where it's cold,rainy and gray a good 70% of the time and well, comfort foods are a must. And ? Comfort foods that won't expand my waistline well those are even better.  Thus I really wanted to like Progresso Light Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese Soup and Chicken Pot Pie style because it's soup and hello?  Bacon! Cheese ! and Chicken Pot Pie!  Unfortunately, that wasn't to be. In general the cream base in the Creamy Potato with Bacon and Cheese lacked in flavor.  I didn't notice any cheese and what flavor I did notice was more "smoke" flavor than it was bacon.
On another more positive note their new Light Chicken Pot Pie Style soup scored with the larger vegetable and chicken pieces but again I felt something was lacking in the the cream base. With that said, I'd rate this one a bit higher than the Creamy Potato with Bacon and Cheese.

I'm admittedly disappointed in these soups but not Progresso as they have other great varieties in their light lines (try the Beef Pot Roast).

So my final verdict, I'll pass but... go check them out for yourselves. You may find that your own opinion differs from mine.
