Cuisine Adventures French Onion Soup Review

Cuisine Adventures French Onion Soup

Every once in a while, we’ll spot something in the Trader Joe’s freezer aisle that seems kind of random. We might see some Amy’s brand veggie burgers, or faux bacon made by Morningstar Farms. However, we recently spotted a brand we’d never heard before: Cuisine Adventures. We grabbed a box of Cuisine Adventures French Onion Soup so that we could see what it’s all about.

When we took this soup out of the box, we were immediately struck by how adorable it was. It almost looks like some kind of frozen flan!

Because we were eager to try this soup, we opted for the fastest cooking method: the microwave. We cut away the plastic, set the timer, and eagerly waited for the soup to thaw.

Sadly, all of that cuteness disappears once the soup is heated. The melted soup is a chunky mess of sludge that looks more like sewage than a caramel dessert. The soup doesn’t smell great either; the onion scent is overwhelming, and it isn’t very pleasant.

This soup might look repellent, but it actually tastes… okay? There’s nothing impressive about this, really; it’s just a mediocre French onion soup with a few small chunks of melted Swiss cheese. However, when we compare the flavor of the soup to its appearance, it’s hard not to be impressed. We guess you can’t judge a soup by its lumpy brown cover!

According to the nutrition label, each frozen hunk of soup counts as a serving — there are two of these per box. However, as you can see our image above, that hunk only gives you one small bowl of soup. That’s about 420 calories of soup, and it isn’t all that filling.

Even if you’re feeling adventurous, we’d suggest that you stay away from Cuisine Adventures French Onion Soup. It’s not terrible — we definitely appreciate the packaging — but it looks hideous, and it’s kind of high in calories for what it delivers. If you’re desperate for frozen soup, and you’re in the Minnesota area, we’d recommend trying some of Lunds and Byerly’s soups instead.

This soup (bought regularly at Trader Joe’s) is delicious oven cooked and helped me lose 30 lbs.
