Care for a soup in a box?

I remember when I was a kid I used to drink milk in tetra paks. When I'm thirsty my mom would get me an orange juice in tetra pak and I also used to bring it at school. Tetra pak is what they call "it". All the juices in boxes and even foil but not canned ones is "tetra pak". It has become a proper noun than common. I didn't know Tetra Pak was a brand until I turned 30. Seriously, kind of stupid but that's the reality.  
 
I am used to seeing some processed fruit and vegetable food in all sorts of packaging. But this one is new to me, my favorite Chicken Noodle Soup by Chicken Soup for the Soul in Tetra Pak! I was really excited when I saw this product online. I wondered how it really looks and taste. I am also excited to see how the box was made. LOL. Fortunately, just a few weeks ago, I got a chance to try the product myself! Well, maybe not only me but my 2-year old and husband too.

 
I'll discuss the taste first before the packaging. First the soup base, it's a bit creamier than maybe the ones you do at home and compared to most soups you order from restaurants. The noodles are thicker therefore the texture is not as smooth. But it still does taste good. What surpised me are the carrots and chicken. The carrots because it's not at all soggy as I thought it would be. And the chicken, my, it tastes and looks fresh. The chunks are big you'll know it's real chicken! Also in the picture above, you'll see how much the content is. It's good for one person or maybe two. Almost fits one regular bowl. And I also don't think they have a bigger size than that, but I have to check.
 
Remember I said I was excited to see how the box looks like, I am talking about the inside. It's somehow wrapped with foil which protects the carton from sogging. It makes it easy to clean for recycling too. If you want to know more about their packaging you may visit their site, just because I may not be able to clearly explain how they do it in layman's term.
I also took a photo of the Nutrition Facts if any have any health or diet concerns.

  3. I've always been wondering why soups never come in tetra paks as those, now they're here! That's really more environmentally-friendly but I'll miss Warhol's Campbell design on cans if they change it too. Thanks for the input!

  10. That looks very good though I don't usually buy pre-cooked meals or soups, I prefer to make one at home as I know that it doesn't have any preservatives and chemicals I can't read at all. Anyway, this is perfect though for emergencies, just in case.
