Having a weak immune system I find myself getting sick a lot easier and unfortunately it causes my conditions (Diabetes, Gastroparisis & Renal Failure) to flare up, resulting to me being hospitalized. This happened to be the case for my birthday! This cold was a bad one and hit me hard, I was losing my voice and having a difficult time breathing. When I feel like that it helps eating soups and broths and one of my all time favorite soup is Cream Of Mushroom from Campbells Canada 🙂 Unfortunately upon examining the ingredients I found that it’s made with wheat flour, boo! No more of my favorite soup EVER! Just kidding 😉
Did you know that Campbells Canada has over 40 products that are Gluten Free? I know, exciting right 🙂 Some of these products include V8, Gardennay, Stock First, Ready-To-Use Broth, Prego and Pepperidge Farms. Being that I was feeling like death and disappointed from the mushroom soup discovery, the kind folks at Campbells Canada generously sent me a couple of their gluten free products to help lift my spirits and help me get better, we all know soups and broths help fight colds! A Huge Thank you for that Campbells 🙂

I’ve never tried a bean soup before and honestly thought that it would have a texture similar to pea soup, which I am NOT a fan of! I really couldn’t help but try the Red Pepper Black Bean Gardennay soup the packaging made the soup look so appetizing and reeled me in 😉 As I said, I figured the texture would be grainy as beans are, kidney beans anyways and was totally shocked by how wrong my assumption was. The soup has a nice creamy texture like tomato soup as well as having a sweetness from the red pepper, and would make a very tasty alternative to tomato sauce for a spaghetti sauce recipe. This has become 1 of my all time favorite gluten free soups 🙂
Since I’ve named a 1st, I now have to tell you about my 2nd all time favorite gluten free soup which is Campbells Chicken with White & Wild Rice (Condensed). I absolutely LOVE wild rice, I can seriously eat a medium sized pot of it to myself, lol. The fact that the broth wasn’t salty and tasted like regular broth and of course, had wild rice makes this a soup I will definitely be filling my gluten free cupboard with!
There’s 1 more product from Campbells Canada that I’d like to mention: Pepperidge Farms’ Nacho Cheese Tortilla Crackers. These delicious little snacks are made with stone ground corn masa flour, whole grain corn flour, corn flour and are lighty coated with a real cheddar cheese, tomato, onion and garlic (nacho) seasoning. These were a huge hit with myself as well as the little one and I suspect that I’ll be purchasing these as well!
I am extremely happy to know that my choices are even broader and from a company I’ve known and loved my entire life! Check your labels for the Gluten Free symbol and enjoy 🙂
