Progresso Creamy Portabella Mushroom Soup

Recommended Posts

Ok folks, I am sure that many of you use this soup to make your grean bean caseroles and various other recipes that call for mushroom soup. The problem is, that I do not believe they are making it any longer!! :o I have started seeing cans going on discount then the tag is taken off the shelf and the soup is gone!! It isn't even on their website list of products anymore as far as I can see.

I have written a letter to progresso (general mills) however I am sure that one person is not going to make much difference. I think that it might help alot if you other folks who use this soup would also write into the company. So please take a couple of min. to tell them how helpful it is to have the soup in the can instead of slaving over a stove to make a cream base and then only after that is done being able to make the caseroles etc.

Maybe, just maybe if enough of us write, we can get it brought back?? Worth a shot. Thanks for the help!! :D

If you go here.....then at the bottom of the page click on contact progresso it should work and you can write your letter to them.

Here's my message! :D I used your exact words in the end...

Hello,

I'm writing to inquire as to whether Progresso Creamy Portabella Mushroom Soup has been pulled from your product line.  I am also writing in an attempt to bring back this soup if it is no longer being produced.  I don't see the soup in your product list, which is upsetting as it has been very helpful for me and my celiac friends.

Celiac disease is an intolerance to wheat, rye, and barley.  The tiniest amount of any of these ingredients causes havoc in the intestines of celiacs that takes month to repair.  Thus, many foods must be eliminated from our diets, particularly a majority of the mainstream products.  Your Creamy Portabella Mushroom soup (which has none of these forbidden ingredients) was so helpful...it's much more convenient to have the soup in the can instead of slaving over a stove to make a cream base and then only after that is done being able to make the caseroles, etc.

Thank you for taking the time to read my message.

Thank you Jessica for posting this information, I sent my comments in too, I hope if enough of us do this they will see the demand and keep making it. I was wondering why my local Kroger didn't carry it anymore.

Thanks again Jessica :D

Maybe, like the company suggested, the supermarket you go to has decided to stock other varieties/flavors of the soup. Or perhaps the Creamy Mushroom wasn't selling very well. If you ask them to, they might add it back...or just make smaller orders, knowing that you'll buy the soup.

This soup disappeared from my local Kroger so I wrote the regional Kroger dietician (I have an advantage here because she's also the wife of my daughter's former high school cross country and track coach). It took a while but she finally told me that this product is no longer available. She didn't go into detail but I can only assume Kroger decided as a chain to drop it. I expalined to her why this was bad for people with celiac or even a wheat allergy. I personally rarely use it any more because I'm also watching sodium.

As a consolation, though, Kroger sent me a case of the soup. I would complain to any store that has dropped this product in hopes of getting it back, but I'm not sure I would expect a case in consolation.

It's possible that's the case. Or it could be that your store is having trouble paying their bills and the manufacturer has shut them off until they catch up.

Since it IS soup in a can, perhaps you could cut a deal by special ordering a case of 12? Many companies don't mind special orders if you buy a whole case.

This thread is over four years old.

I believe, currently Progresso Creamy Mushroom soup is still available. Not always easily found, but still available. ;) When I find it, I buy six or more cans.
