There are quite a few different soup options at Costco, but these Allen Family Foods Soups are unique in that they’re designed to be easy to eat on the go. The containers are microwavable and easy to open. I know what you’re thinking. That’s great, but will I enjoy eating the soup? Read on to find out!
Other soups from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Chicken Noodle Soup, Kirkland Signature Organic Bone Broth, Rao’s Vegetable Minestrone Soup, Kirkland Signature Chicken Tortilla Soup, Kirkland Signature Broccoli Cheddar Soup, Sprague Organic Lentil Soup, Cuisine Adventures French Onion Soup, Johnny’s Potato Cheddar Soup Mix and the Authentic Asia Hand Wrapped Shrimp Wonton Soup.

This soup isn’t good and is not something I’d purchase again. I find it has a really odd, sweet flavor. I notice a herb or spice that tastes like black licorice which I don’t think pairs well with the other ingredients and I don’t love.
This soup isn’t very salty and I’m disappointed by the sweetness, I prefer a more savory soup. If you like a hearty soup I will say that this one is really full of beans and feels more like eating a can of beans than a soup in my opinion. The texture of the broth is quite thick too.
I only found a few small pieces of kale in an entire container. I wish there was more since it is a white bean & kale soup. Not just a white bean soup.
The soup costs $14.99 Canadian and there are six 400-milliliter containers in the box, this is a pretty typical price for a soup like this.
The best-before date on the soup is 14 months from when I purchased it. The soup comes packaged in a plastic microwaveable container so you can easily bring one to work or school. I love that the packaging is BPA free.
Because the soup is so hearty it’s a meal in itself and you don’t really need anything else like a sandwich with it.
There are 160 calories, two and a half grams of fat, 27 grams of carbohydrates, eight grams of fibre, five grams of sugar, eight grams of protein and 510 milligrams of sodium in one cup of soup.
There’s lots of fiber in the soup but also a lot of sodium! The nutrition facts aren’t for an entire container of soup, only a cup.
I love that the ingredients are organic and the soup has olive oil in it instead of palm or canola oil. I have zero complaints about the ingredients and honestly wish I liked the soup more because I’m a fan of simple, healthy ingredients like this.
They could leave out the agave syrup because I think that’s what’s causing the sweet flavor I don’t enjoy.
Walk on by!
This is definitely a nourishing, filling soup and I appreciate the ingredients list but I just don’t love the flavor.
