Review of Amy’s Kitchen Organic Soup
After visiting the Natural and Organics show held at Olympia in London last month I had the pleasure of being introduced to Amy’s Kitchen. When I learned it was a family business using all natural and organic ingredients I instantly wanted to learn more about them and offered to write up a review on their products. So for the last week I have mostly been eating Amy’s Kitchen tinned soups.
I will talk a little more about the three different soups I tried in a moment, but first I would like to give you a little bit of information about their back story. Amy’s parents started the company back in 1987 when Amy was born naming the company after her. Amy’s mum grew up in a family growing organic vegetables long before it was trendy, while her dad was involved in a herbal tea company. It is clear from their grass roots that health and well being were priorities in the their lives and so of course the trend would continue. Even Amy’s grandparents have made huge contributions to the growth of the company. With all of the family pulling together covering different aspects of the business this lovely little company that started out in the USA has become an international success now with products available in the UK from stores such as Holland and Barrett, Tesco and Amazon.
Amy’s Kitchen provide a wide range of high quality products all organic and free from GMO’s along side a gluten free range for those with food sensitivities. I had the pleasure of trying their Split Pea, Chunky Tomato and French Country Vegetable soups which are all wheat and gluten free and approved by the vegetarian society.
The French Country Vegetable was the first one I tried which was very wholesome with butter beans which I just adore and barley. I also very much enjoyed the Split Pea soup, a flavour I love to make myself at home. It packed loads of flavour even being completely meat free, most recipes I have seen for pea soups include ham or at least some meat based stock. My favourite one of three though was the chunky tomato variety, it was simply BURSTING with delicious tomatoey flavour and I loved that there were chunks of tomato and that it was not all blitzed. In fact all three of the soups I tried had recognisable chunks of vegetables in them. Another bonus with these soups is that they are all low in fat too so great if you are counting calories or just looking to reduce your fat intake.
I have to say I was thoroughly impressed and happy to declare them as the very best commercial soups I have ever tasted. I simply wouldn’t bother with any other brand now. They definitely are in my opinion the next best thing to making my own at home. I will certainly be looking out for more Amy’s Kitchen products and I hope you will too. I’m certain you won’t be disappointed!
