    personally Tamgredan this is one of my favourites. It's slightly tomatoey/chilli with a hint of herbs. It has dried chilli flakes in it and some dried red pepper I think, I add extra chilli flakes and some chopped fresh coriander. Yum yum. I put fresh herbs in all my soups (I have a savoury tooth rather than a sweet one). My mouth is watering now lol xx

    This is my favourite soup! I've ordered 3 for the week.

    Adding coriander to it is a great idea furrysmudge, I always forget to add herbs.
    My flatmate has gone all green thumb and now we have coriander, thyme, rosemary, sage, parsley and basil growing on our balcony. I should really put some effort into gourmet-ifying my shakes/soups

    Oriental Chilli is my favourite too - I love it and look forward to it :) I think the thing to do is give them all a try then you know which you like and don't like.

    Oriental Chilli is quite similar to Vegetable actually - they both have that spicy taste (and are my faves, along with Cheese & Broccoli!).

    To all my soups, I add (dried) herbs, cayenne & black pepper and curry powder - in differing amounts according to the soup. I always add more water than it says, too, so I get a bigger meal! I'm OK with them all, but my least fave is Spicy Tomato because it's weirdly sweet. (And 'normal' Tomato is my fave, so that's a pity!)

    I love oriental chilli! To me it tastes like a Thai soup made with coconut milk, really nice.

    Its was OK, it didnt smell very nice, but i quite liked the 'bits' in it, they were nice to chew on. I think i will have 1 per week and the rest as vegetable. Ive only got a chick & mush left for tomorrow and already im dreading it! never mind.....i know by now that "nothing tastes as good a slim feels"

    Was the ONLY soup I could have at one point before my taste buds adjusted. I still love it today, I think it's the most 'real' tasting of the soups.

    Chicken and mushroom is my absolute favourite! I don't usually like that kind of thing but it is the best one in my opinion, tastes really nice...even better than Oriental Chilli!
