Low Fat Cup Soups - Tried and Tasted

With Fireworks Night upon us the T 'n' T team are looking for some dynamite cups of soup to keep them warm.

Ranking 1 2 3
Summary The best in the display; tasty and creamy. Bursting with flavour and reassuring to see more leek bits in a world of flavourings. A shining example. A very close second and lower in fat than the BGTY. Lots of leek bits and and a slightly sweet, almost minty, taste that really sparkles. Not a bad flavour but then there's not enough of it to really tell. Some tasters detected a slight buttery taste but none were really buttered up the right way. Average.

Summary The tasters were keeping a safe distance from this good looking soup, thanks to an unusual smell. When it was tasting time they were hit with a very salty taste. Low in calories but the high sodium figure is more evident. Failing to light the taste team's touch paper, Weight Watchers' soup seemed creamy but was ultimately tasteless and disappointing. Not as flashy as the pack suggests. Carries the highest fat content. An enticing smell but a flavour that seems to fizzle out without a trace is a real let down.

Batchelors and Weight Watchers failed to shine here and dropped well below the supermarket own brands. Meanwhile, Tesco and Sainsburys blew away the competition with some dazzling efforts.
