I bought the Pasta Fagioli soup mix. When I made it I had some leftover tomato sauce, which I threw in as a substitute for part of the liquid. It made the soup a little thicker. I would buy this again, and do the same. The only issue I had is that the soup was MUCH better the second day. So I would make it one day, but not eat it until the next when the flavors have a chance to blend.

I was disappointed by the potato corn chowder mix that I received as a gift. I love homemade corn chowder, usually taking the time to chop the potatoes,celery, onions, etc. myself.

This time, I used the packaged soup mix, and I found that it wasn't as thick and hearty as I had anticipated, and the potato pieces were so minute that they were difficult to find. The soup was not rich and creamy either - the directions suggested low fat milk or 1/2/ and 1/2, so I used part low fat milk and part 1/2/ and 1/2 - it may have been creamier with all 1/2 and 1/2?

Plus, I don't think it would be a stretch if the mix contained dried garlic and onion. if you have to add chopped bacon, onion, and garlic yourself, it takes away some of the convenience factors. Also, I think the directions are not sufficiently detailed.

That being said, the second day flavor and texture was much improved.

    Comments about Harry & David Pick 4 Soups:

    I got the jambalaya soup mix as a gift. I wanted to add veggies so I added celery,potatoes, and onions. Then cooked chicken and added pre-cooked sausage. I cooked the veggies a bit first to soften then added everything from the soup pkg. I brought everything to a boil then reduced and simmered....turned out amazing!!!

        Purchased the Chili and Harvest Veggie soup for my family to enjoy on football Sundays and snowy days. I nervously used more meat in the chili then what it called for and surprisingly it came out great! The flavor was spectacular and like most sauce based recipes it's flavor was better on the second day. I recommend you make it in advance to allow flavors to meld over night. We have not enjoyed the Harvest Veggie soup as of yet but I have no doubts that it will be fabulous. Thanks Harry and David for another great product.

          I purchase the potato corn and bacon chowder and absolutely loved it! The only things to add were half and half, diced onion and bacon(optional). It was so easy to prepare and made a lot of soup which I divided into tupperware dishes and froze. This soup is delicious and the perfect make ahead meal for those times you don't feel like cooking

          Service and delivery comments:

          At the time I bought this, we actually had a Harry and David store in our city. It has since closed, but I would order this online because it was so good. And I know Harry and David always stand behind their products and the customer service (on other items I have ordered online from them) has always been excellent. A+++++.

              Comments about Harry & David Pick 4 Soups:

              This was purchased several years ago at the Washington Court House outlet mall store. I was worried about the quality to my surprise and 3 others it was very delicious. I followed the recipe to the tee and used half/half. If you are expecting a thick creamy soup these are not the ones to choose. They are designed for ease/speed and convenience. If your a good soup chef then you know how to make it a thicker type of soup. Will try others flavors.

              Comments about Harry & David Pick 4 Soups:

              Not your grocery store soup mix! The soup mix was complete, quick to prepare, specific instructions, excellent flavor and quantity. Due to a nut allergy, I was disappointed that some of the soups are prepared in a facility that processes nuts. You could never anticipate that caution from the ingredients, and it isn't listed on the website or catalogue.

              Service and delivery comments:

              On time delivery, but packaged exactly as shown: four bags of soup. Not the presentation of a holiday gift, corporate gift, or thank you. No gift basket or even a ribbon or tissue paper.

                I made it for supper tonight but had to come up with a different menu. The barley, mushroom chicken soup was so salty it was inedible. We actually enjoy salt, so this was a surprise.

                  If you have the time these packs can start you on your way to a soup; however these packets have simple items you can purchase for a lot less on the supermarket shelf, and are not a complete soup mix by themselves.
