Does your 3 year old love soup?

This giveaway is now closed, but please enjoy reading our review!

While researching companies and products to try I was truly surprised to find two guys making soup in my backyard – not literally, but close enough!

Two Guys in Vermont is a Montpelier, VT company setting out to make the best soup possible. Gluten free, mostly organic, packaged in glass jars (bpa free!).

To say that co-owner Jeff Weinstein is enthusiastic about his soup is an understatement. Jeff is not only enthusiastic about his soup, but he is passionate about the ingredients that he is using and the farmers he is supporting.

We met Jeff and he offered us samples of the three flavors of soup they make: Veggie Basil, Chunky Garden Tomato, and Curried Apple Butternut Squash. We decided to sample soup that same day (“we” being my 3 1/2 year old son and myself). My son chose Veggie Basil. He took one bite and said “This is the best soup I have ever had”. He then asked me to please call Jeff and “tell him I love this soup”. I couldn’t make this up, he really did love the soup! I agreed that this soup was great. It has a deep rich flavor. You want to pause after each bite an think about the various ingredients and spices that make up your bowl of soup. The addition of cannellini beans(which I usually would not add to my own soup) surely does make this soup filling and hearty. My son and I both wanted a second bowl of this delicious soup!

We paired the Chunky Garden Tomato soup with grilled cheese (see photo below). This is a classic combination that warms you up and nourishes your soul. Jazz this soup up by adding pasta, crunchy croutons, or shredded cheese. Or get cozy with a big bowl of Chunky Garden Tomato on it’s own.

When you eat the Curried Apple Butternut Squash soup you can easily distinguish the two main ingredients: squash and apple. The curry is not overpowering, but is sweet and it offers a bit of a warm spice.

Two Guys’ soup tastes fresh because it is fresh! The freshest soup that you will find on a store shelf!

Jeff and his partner Chef Doug Barg will continue to research and write new recipes and make great soup. I hope that you will look for it at a store near you. Bring it home, try it, and enjoy! Keep a few jars in your pantry, your office, and share with friends.

PS: My son has a few soups he would like you to think about: Parmesan Carrot and Broccoli Celery. Maybe???

  2. I’d try Curried Apple Butternut Squash – unique! You can tell from the photos that those are some quality soups. I’ll definitely have to pick some up when I’m in Vermont… or maybe I can find them in Boston. I’ll go check it out.

    • Just went to the website & found my answer! I’m going to Natural Provisions today – I’m sure my 2 year old will thank me 🙂

  3. We eat soup like its going out of style lately! the kids would totally love the chunky garden tomato! I would personally love to try the veggie basil goodness! Theres nothung better than a yummy bowl of soup and the fact that it is made in VT makes it that much better!

  4. Oh, little H- I think your soup ideas are fantastic! Little A “makes” us apple soup but her specialty is apple soup with worms! Yours sound so much better than hers!!

  5. I would love to try the Curried Apple Butternut Squash. Any idea where we can buy their soup in Chittenden County?

    • Hi Lori, you can checkout Healthy Living, City Market, Richmond Market and Shelburne Market (in the canned soup aisle) – thanks for your interest! Jeff (Soup Guy).

  6. Actually, my husband and I just had the Veggie Basil for dinner tonight! It was delicious! We love that Two Guys in Vermont soup is in glass jars and that it has significantly less sodium than other box/can soups. I’d like to try the Curried Apple Butternut Squash next.

  7. hard to choose, I’ll go for the tomato basil! Just love soup, especially in my soup mugs I received for Christmas!

  8. I would love to try the vegetable basil one! But I believe your son may be on a roll with the carrot parmesan soup. I think that sounds really GOOD!
