    Evening all
    Does anyone know if SF are stopping their range in soups? I purchased a load for 50p each in my local boots this morning and questionned the bargain! I was informed they will no longer be stocked, I was informed this was due to the lines being withdrawn from Boots??? Any other shops doing this?
    I love the soups!!!!

    Wow that is a bargain. I'm not aware that they are stopping them but at least you have stocked up just in case they do! Can't imagine that they will though

    I've never tried the soups but seen some good comments on them so I might have a go. Boots.com are selling them with 20% off healthcare foods so maybe it's just the store you shop at that won't be selling them anymore? maybe they haven't got the business for them to justify stocking them? my 2 pennies :p

    Today the shops all had the soups no problem! I have to say my 50p chicken/mushroom soup was absolutely gorgeous - would def. recommend it.

    Blimey! I wish I'd been out shopping with you, I love the chicken but can't get it for love nor money where I am. I've tried the new vegetable though, didn't find it as good as the tomato or chicken

    Hee hee, none were left after I had finished! I have not tried the veggie soup yet so I will have a look. What I did notice, was on line boots offer bulk packs of SF products. Currently sold out, but handy to know and they work out cheaper too. Lost 8lb this week, I know it sonly week 1 and it will slow down, but SF with its shakes snacks and soups really is an easy approach.

    Some soups some soups my kingdom for some soups!

    How curious, went in to my local town where we have Boots, Sainsburys, Superdrug etc an no one stocks soups anymore. When I asked they said they have been discontinued or they are no longer stocked with the suppliers as SF are expanding the snack line???:cry: I was then shown a cranberry cereal snack bar that they now do ... I bought one to try but not impressed, no flavour!
    The website mentions nothing, and I had my suspicions when I found those cheap soups last week ...
    Hmmm

    I emailed SF directly and have confirmed they have already stopped making the soups due to low demand!

    Best all stock up if you can find any left anywhere

    Hello from Slimfast

    Dear Lisa,

    Thank you for your recent enquiry about Slim.Fast Soups.

    Although we try to sell our complete range to retailers, we have no control
    over the products that they choose to stock. The head offices of the major
    retailers decide which products and sizes they wish to sell through each of
    their stores, and so we are unable to let you know which specific stores
    stock this product.

    However, the following retailers do take supplies of this product from us
    and they should be able to let you know your nearest store:

    Boots 08456 090055
    Asda 0845 300 1111
    Spar 0208 426 3700
    Morrisons 0845 611 6111
    Tesco 0800 505555
    Waitrose 0800 188 884
    Sainsbury 0800 636262

    I hope that this information will be helpful to you. I am sorry that I am
    unable to provide you with any further specific advice.

    Kind regards,

    Hmmm that is bizarre! This is the email I got from them;

    Hello from Slimfast

    Dear Elizabeth,

    Thank you for your recent email. I'm sorry to tell you that we have stopped
    making Slim.Fast Soups due to low demand.

    As a regular buyer, this is obviously disappointing news for you. If you
    would kindly forward me your contact details, I will be happy to send you a
    voucher so that you can try another product from our range.

    I look forward to hearing from you again shortly.

    Kind regards,

    Andrea Teixeira

    Maybe they have had a bit of a breakdown in communication somewhere because I'm pretty sure Unilever would not have confirmed they have stopped them if they hadn't.
