    Hi there, I love soups this time of year and do make my own, but sometimes I want something quick and easy, maybe to take to work! I do have the SW directory but just wondered if anyone can recommend some yummy branded FREE soups that they've tried:confused:, or any that are really low in syns! Thanks!X

    As far as I know there aren't any packaged/tinned soups that are free.
    There are a few that can be used as a HEB and they'll be listed in your ook.
    I make my own usually now to be sure they're free. I made carrot and coriander today and it was really filling and warming. I had it with a chicken and ham sandwich for my lunch xx

    I made my own Chilli Bean Soup today and it was YUM! I doubled up the receipe so LOADS to keep me going! I think some of the Weight Watchers soups are low in syns if you need to syn them.

    Just be aware that this thread is over a year old and this list is likely not very up-to-date

    Besides, home made is best - a lot of those have cream, salt and even added fat/oil;)

    If in doubt make a few gallon and get freezing :p

    The Waitrose Tomato and Basil one was in the SW mag as HExB. I had it today and it was delicious, but not as satisfying as the ones I make myself. At the moment the kitchen is out of action so I'm buying soup to take to school with me, so if anyone can recommend any of the others on the list that ARE still HExB's I'd be extremely grateful. (Really I'm looking forward to making soup on the shiny new cooker that appeared in the kitchen today though).

    Don't worry, I make a lot of my own soups and always keep an eye on the SW website for HEX ones, but quite frankly resent spending 11-12 syns on a tin of soup nevermind using a HEX for half of one!! I posted that 14 months ago not long after starting SW!! Can't believe where the time has gone and really proud I'm still here and hard at it!! X

    This is my exact attitude Funcurls. I can't work out though whether I am just being bloody-minded, frugal or what!

    I prefer to spend my precious syns on things I cannot easily make myself

    Exactly!! It's not being bloody minded or frugal it's just that you get so much more for your syns (or lack of) when making your own and you know exactly what's going into it!! No salt, oil or preservatives and probably far nicer in flavour!! Well done on your loss so far hun, I see we have a similar amount to go!! Gutted that before Christmas I had 10.5lb to go, but heyho, I'm still here and hard at it and WILL get to target albeit the scenic way!! X

    if it is not on the healthy extra list then no it wont be I am afraid.

    branded/ready made soups are always going to be high in syns as they don't qualify for any free food allowance whatsoever. So unless using one of the qualifying healthy extra ones, stick to making your own I say :)

    2 of Morrisons Souper Soups are FREEEEE on green and EE. They are the Chunky vegetable one and the Spicy Lentil one. There is also a tomato and Basil one available which I have out the syn calculator and it comes out as 4 sysn, however I got the figures for the calories etc online so not sure how reliable they are.

    You will find them with the tinned soups, they are in a white microwaveable bowl shaped pot with a silver lid. 97p each. )In my store they were with the microwaveable Heinz Big soups)

    Did you read that somewhere SW-based or did you run it through the syns calculator?

    Shop soups dont count for free food so are 1 syn per 20 calories, so unless these are special for some reason and SW has officially announced it they are not free...

    And this thread is quite old, so some of the syns may well be out of date now. (Can't believe it was only a year ago that the landlord put the new kitchen in - seems much longer - must be all that cooking I do!!)

    Hi, does anyone have any idea how many syns are in the new Heinz cup a soup range?
    They're in a red packet and I can't seem to find the syn value anywhere!

    Thanks x
