Saturday Suggestion: Creamy Tomato and Bunny Pasta Soup

This post is about a product I received complimentary for testing purposes, but my review is an honest appraisal of my opinion of this product.

I hope all of my American readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving! You might be starting to get tired of turkey leftovers, so today I'm suggesting a product I recently tried and would definitely buy again.


Quite a while ago, I received a "Comfort Voxbox" from Influenster, with a variety of products to review.  At least, I should have received it quite a while ago.  Actually, I was never notified that it was available for pickup, so it was undelivered for considerably longer than it should have been. In any event, I finally received it!

The timing turned out to be quite perfect! My son had his wisdom teeth extracted just over a week ago.  All four were impacted and it was a complicated case. He has done extremely well post-surgically, but the first few days it was challenging to think of foods that he could eat. Ice cream, pudding, and macaroni-and-cheese were all good choices and things I had on hand. When he tired of these, however, I offered him one of the things I received in the VoxBox: Annie's Creamy Tomato and Bunny Pasta Soup.

I was a little worried that my 18-year old son might balk a little at the bunny-shaped pasta noodles, but quite the opposite! He said the soup was really very good, and the noodles were soft enough to offer no discomfort for his sore mouth. He commented that since all you have to do to prepare it is heat the contents of the cardboard container, it would be a good meal to take backpacking.

I have never been very fond of tomato soup, but I felt like I should have a taste of this complimentary product, and I was very pleasantly surprised! Its creamy texture had just the amount of tomato flavor, and I thought it was very good. In addition to being delicious, I was impressed to learn from the package that this soup:
  •  is certified as organic
  •  contains no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives
  •  contains no high fructose corn syrup.
  • contains 1/2 cup of vegetables per serving.

I can recommend this soup as a good thing to eat after dental work, to take on a camping trip, or just for an everyday lunch! In fact, it would be perfect served with grilled cheese sandwiches and some crackers.

    1. They have several different flavors of soup, Carlee. I had not tried them either, but we really liked this one. Thanks for commenting!

  2. Tomato soup was always served to us when we felt poorly. Which means I cannot eat it any other time.

    1. I have foods like that as well, although I have finally begun to enjoy them at any time. Gingerale and soda crackers were our recovery comfort foods!

  3. It certainly looks good. I don't usually like tomato soup on its own, so most of the time I add pasta and vegetables, but every now and again I'll have tomato soup with a toasted cheese sandwich on the side.
    We always got chicken noodle soup when we were recovering from anything, so hardly ever as we didn't get sick much. The only thing I remember is chicken pox.

  5. Susan the bunny shaped pasta reminds me of my childhood. Oh the memories you have bought back. Do you remember Chef boyardee? My mom hated canned food, but she had no choice because she worked so sometimes I would get to eat that instead of her home cooking. I loved it!! And there was also another one with the alphabet. Hahahaha...

    1. I do remember Chef Boyardee - but have to admit I never liked it! Isn't it funny how mom's can work hard to prepare something from scratch - and kids sometimes prefer the version out of the can!
