I am not one to wantonly endorse products. Therefore, if I am telling you to go spend your hard-earned dinero on anything other than what's on sale, there must be a reason. I know you're also thinking, "V8? As a soup?" Be not afraid - this soup rocks. It's pricey, but I had a coupon, so I went for it, and it is totally worth every scrumptious penny. It has actual squash in it! And herbs! And flavor! And it's not stocked full of nasty artificial substances. Amazing! I also recommend it because it's a full serving of vegetables, and the one carton is perfect serving-size-wise for two people.
Pumpkin soup entered my life the year I lived in France, and hasn't ever left. It's on my top ten best things about fall for sure, and it allowed me to branch out into other squashes. I don't go near yellow squash, and ratatouille makes me sick to my stomach, but squashy soups are wonderful. It's a weird paradox, I'll grant you.
Try. It. You. Will. Like. It. See? I'm hypnotizing you!!!
