gluten free soup Progresso Soup figured it out

It isn't suprising that one of the things I missed when going gluten free, was the ease of going to the grocery store, picking up some hearty heart warming soup and then stocking the pantry for the hard days that needed soup to finish them off.
Soup... it is for the soup, the brain to melt from the cold, and the heart to warm from whatever roughness the person had to take from the day.

So progresso does a great job of making a great soup. But they just weren't gluten free, so I passed them in the aisle and never looked back for fear of turning into a pillar of salt, or some such thing.

Last week, my boyfriend so kindly brought to me Cream of Mushroom, New England Clam chowder, corn chowder, and a lovely cheesy broccoli and potato soup. When he pulled the cans out of the bag, I sighed in envy knowing he was stocking my pantry, and these were probably for him. Much to my surprise, these were all purchased for me to taste test, and grade on if we would be return customers.
Well doggone if these weren't the real deal, as I remember them growing up. Delicious, nutritious and again soup is easy to have a serving size, or "cook with a can of cream of mushroom soup".

What a gift.
