Id like to clarify to the disgruntled consumer who purchased Riviera soup. The minestrone is the best I have ever had. Actually I make all my soup from scratch and I purchased a couple cans of the minestrone and chicken noodle from Kmart to have on hand. I wasn't feeling well and decided to open the chicken noodle. To my surprise the soup was rich in texture, low in calorie and packed full of flavor. I checked the label twice to make certain I didn't need to add water. Most canned soup taste like the can.
Riviera soup is authentic italian style soup and there is nothing wrong with the minestrone. When you open it, it will appear dark and very thick. You can add water or heat it up as it is.
This soup is in the top category for quality versus Campbells and Progressive. The leading brands are watered down and have very little flavor.
I suggest keeping in mind you are opening a can of excellent homestyle italian soup and please try it again.
I am not an employee or affiliated with Riviera soup in any manner. Im just a happy customer.
Take care and have a good day.
