    Hiya

    Has anyone tried the minestrone soup?

    Is it a clear soup or cloudy like the others?? If you know what I mean.....

    Thanks x x

    I've got one for my lunch today so can let you know by about 1 o clock! I'm quite excited about it :) I imagine it to be more clear but maybe that's just wishful thinking ;)

    It's not a clear one, it's cloudy. It has quite a lot of noodles in it too. Didn't really like it too much but everyones tastes are different. xx

    MMM MMM is all I have to say! Just finished (literally, I still am chewing on noodles) and it was so yummy and so filling. It is a thick tomatoey soup with quite a lot of thick noodles in and carrots. Delish!

    I didn't think so. I don't like the veg soup as it's too powdery but like the chicken and mushroom with the savoury broth added. I added some broth to it, loads of pepper and Tabasco and it was fine. I'm not very fussy though ;)

    Yup, just tried it myself and can confirm it's.... Noooooodley!! :D

    They had sunk to the bottom on the cup so were a total treat when I got them all in my last few mouthful's!! Lol... Mmmm... Pasta! Teeny amount in reality, but still so nice for a change! :)

    Yes, do try it LadyT, was tasty and not powdery at all I don't think...

    Yup, as Magda-liscious said, it's textured hun... so, erm, if you don't like the chilli you may be disappointed! It's like a non-spicy, creamier version of the chilli basically... nice for a change, but didn't blow me away personally!

    You're right to try it though, you never know, you might love it! :)

    Cheers sweetie x

    I didn't go last week so haven't been weighed for 2 weeks. I was really hoping for a good loss but had a sneaky peek on the scales earlier and I don't think I've lost anything....PAH!
