I’ve purchased a few different varieties of this Healthy Choice line of soups. This one just isn’t that good. It’s very bland. This particular box came with several of the plastic lids missing as well. My favorite so far is the chicken with rice. I’ll probably eat a few and donate the rest.
We busted out our pantry one cold day and settled on what we thought was going to be a good choice for lunch; Healthy Choice Traditional Lentil soup. We regretted every bite.
Well, the claims that this microwaveable bowl (14 oz) has 1/2 cup of vegetables with only 150 calories and 440mg. of sodium per serving was misleading. In reality, this soup was for 2 servings which doubles those claims. Who is sharing this? The green package makes us feel like it is a single serving size that would be healthy for us to eat.
Well, what about the taste?
First you eat with your eyes. This soup was ugly. It was brown with wimpy, soggy, ex-green items swimming in it. What were those green things? We literally had to look at the ingredient list to figure it out. They claimed it was spinach. Seriously? We choose to differ.
The flavors were off. Salt and burnt carrot maybe. It was gross. It smelled gross.

Traditional lentil is a perfect choice for anyone wanting a healthy quick meal. It has everything I need, like protein and vegetables, and nothing I don’t, like excessive amounts of sodium (found in most soups), fat, and sugar. For those complaining about the taste, I disagree and hope nothing changes about this soup. This product knows what it is, it’s lentil soup, and thankfully the manufacturers didn’t mess too much with the natural flavoring of lentils, which taste great to me. For a vegetarian, this is a great source of protein coming in at 14 grams of protein per a bowl (7g per serving).
I would put this in the category of barely edible. The soup was bland and what flavor there was was not a good one. The texture was rather bad itself and I would prefer any other lentil soup to this one here.

I work nights and there often is not anything to eat. I keep one of these in my locker, you don’t need a bowl or plate…you don’t need a can opener. Easy open lid and a microwave cover so you don’t have to clean your microwave if it bubbles! Tastes great.
Just tried this soup for the first time. It is watery, bland-to-flavorless. My soup did not have as many letils as the spoon on the container picture in the entire cup.
There is simply no way there is 1/2 cup of vegetables in this 1 cup serving. Save your money, a cup of tap water is more flavorful.
