The Original SoupMan Soups ~ Sampler Review

This is a review in partnership with The Niche Parent Network & Conference. All opinions are my own.

A cold Winter’s day like this…


…calls for a nice warm bowl of soup! And how lucky was I that right in time for all of this nasty icy, snowy weather that we rarely get here in Alabama, I received several boxes of SoupMan soups to try! Okay, well really they were supposed to be here BEFORE all of this, but BECAUSE of all of this, I received them a tad late. But that is okay because here it is snowing once again! Perfect timing if I do say so myself.

The Original Soupman’s Soups – Seven Wonders of the World

Do you remember Seinfeld and the episode about the Soup Nazi?  Well, the Soup Nazi was actually inspired by the SoupMan restaurant. Long before that episode was even written, the legendary NYC Soupman store was feeding long lines of people daily. Their soup was so good, that they figured perhaps people who didn’t live in New York City would like it as well. And the Original SoupMan‘s soups were born.

The Original SoupMan‘s Seven Wonders of the World soup flavors which includes Chicken Gumbo, Lentil, Tomato Bisque, Crab & Corn Chowder, Jambalaya, Chicken Noodle Soup, and my personal favorite – Lobster Bisque.


The first flavor I tried was the Lobster Bisque, while my husband ate the Chicken Noodle and Crab and Corn Chowder. I found the Lobster Bisque to be okay, but I definitely wish there were more pieces of lobster in it. What was there was pretty tiny. The broth part was pretty flavorful and the portion size was ideal.

The other soups were packed full of veggies and spices, although my husband wasn’t overly impressed either. To me, it’s hard to get a homemade taste out of a mass produced product. However, everyone enjoys different tastes and flavors, so I still think they are worth a try. Especially if you are looking for an alternative to a sandwich when lunchtime rolls around during the work week – or for your children’s lunch at school.

SoupMan Packaging

SoupMan soups come packaged in fresh, modern Tetra Pak containers. If you are not familiar with Tetra Pak cartons, they are the same type cartons that children’s juice boxes are made of that keep light and air and other contaminants out, so the stuff inside will stay nice and fresh. Not only do they keep the food or drink fresh for much longer than other types of packaging, but they are very environmentally friendly, too. Plus, they are completely BPA-free.


The containers are a cinch to open, just follow the instructions and they open easily, you don’t need a can opener or scissors. Plus, you can just pour out the amount of soup you want, close the carton and stick it inside the refrigerator until you are ready for the rest (within 7 days) – no messy storage container needed.

Another thing I found pretty neat about these soups is that each package comes with some great recipe ideas such as adding the Jambalaya to rice and spooning the mixture into a tortilla making a Jambarrito, or adding more lobster pieces to the Lobster Bisque – there are so many delicious ideas for which you can use these soups!

Wow. The soup is DISGUSTING! If you ever ever had the original soup made by Ali Yeganeh then its impossible to think the gunk that came out of the carton is anything like 'the original'. I found it to be nothing more than canned soup and not even a fabulous example of canned soup. It was gross.

I wholeheartedly agree. I couldn't even get more than a few spoonfuls down. Had the Lobster Bisque, and the Chicken Gumbo and will stick with Campbells. ... Terrible .. The Gumbo had what seemed like the stringy parts of asparagus in it
