Have you noticed it's almost Winter yet? I don't know about where you are, but here in Tennessee it didn't start really feeling like late Fall, almost Winter until earlier this week.
But it is now, and there's nothing better that I love during these cold months than soup.
One of favorite brands of soups if Progresso. With so many choices, it's hard not to love them.
Recently Progresso and My Blog Spark offered to me free samples of two flavors to which I had not yet been introduced: New England Clam Chowder Light and Chicken Tortilla.
While both were delicious, I've got to say my family has now fallen in love with the New England Clam Chowder. Although lighter on calories - only 1 Weight Watchers Point - Progresso has not sacrificed the rich, creamy seasoning and hearty chunks of meat that makes their soups so tasty!
Giving you a taste worth talking about with new varieties, Progresso continues to provide convenient options made to taste great and encourage good food choices, too. It’s important to make food choices for yourself and for your family that are both satisfying to your taste buds and nutritious.
