Has anyone tried this? I just found it on another website. I was browing the products there and saw it. But I will not order from that site. It's a food allergy site. I placed an order of about $200 worth of stuff last year. Never got the order. Long story short, the business was shut down. The owner was in contact with me but she said there was nothing she could do to get my money back. Now she has re-opened but I don't trust to order from her again! So I searched and found it on another site and ordered a case of it.

They do make some other flavors of soups, but they were of no interest to me for various reasons. They also make frozen meals. I have seen the frozen meals at local stores and now wonder if perhaps those stores also sell the canned soup. Perhaps I just missed it? Their website said it is available at many grocery stores.

This is one thing we've been missing. Chicken and noodle is my daughter's favorite soup. I do make it for her sometimes, but mostly when she wants it is when she is sick. And when she is sick, I am often sick. So I don't feel like making soup. I always keep cooked rice in the house so making chicken and rice soup is much easier for me. That's what I usually make.

I just hope this is good! I bought the Kettle Cuisine after seeing it get high ratings, but we didn't really like it.

I don't know about that product but I would advise you to contact that site and try again to get your money back. Hopefully you kept any email or snail mail communication. If the communication was by email the easy way to retrive it from some email sites, like yahoo, is to do a search using the companies name. Filing a claim with the Better Business folks might help also.

One tip for ordering anything that has any risk, use your credit card. That way the credit card company can do a chargeback if something like that happens again.

I can't remember the particulars now. I think they filed bankruptcy or something. The owner said she could not give me any money back because there was none and she also had no product she could send. I had said I would accept any product she had that we weren't allergic to.

I don't like to use my credit card because currently the balance is too high due to emergency type things. Both of our vehicles needed expensive repairs and then we needed a new hot water heater at the same time.

I don't know if I used Paypal or debit card. It has been so long I can't remember. I use Paypal when I can. They are really of no help though if there is a problem. I have had two problems on Ebay. Both times I didn't get my merchandise. They didn't do a thing.

Since the business is back up I would contact her and refresh her memory about the unfulfilled order. If you imply that you will do business with her after you recieve your original order perhaps you might get that 'backorder'.

Paypal can't do anything after this length of time about that order but they have changed regs there. Supposedly the process to get you money back if you don't recieve something has gotten easier. Don't know alot about it as I rarely buy from auctions and have never had an issue but the paypal site should have info on the changes.

She has no record of my order, nor do I. When I placed the order it was just bad timing I think. Supposedly they seized her computer and everything just after my order was placed. I thought it was odd because I never got a confirmation or anything. I can't remember now if I paid via Paypal or debit card. It was at least a year ago. I just won't do business with her again. If she could be shut down that quickly, it certainly could happen again. Odd thing is she has her own line of mixes and things and she is back selling them. Makes me wonder how.

This came today. Daughter was beside herself with joy! Wanted to come back home before dance class to eat some. Time was limited but we raced home and I heated up a can. I ate a small amount and gave her the rest. Although it said there were 2 servings, she easily ate most of the can and probably could have had another. She loved it!

My opinion? It was okay. I thought the chicken was chewy. But there wasn't a lot of chicken in it. The rest was fine. Not something I would go out of my way for. I do like soup. Just not a big fan of canned soup. I prefer home made.

This will be great for those times when she is sick though. She hates my home made soup. I put too many vegetables in it for her. But she ate the carrots in this! And she hates cooked carrots!

I've just started using the Progresso line of gluten free soups and have been very pleased so far.

    • Similarly, I've been vegetarian for 25+ years.  A 2015 Nature study connecting emulsifiers with microbiome changes has me wondering about the processed foods that I ate in the past, and I wonder about the wisdom of eating as much seitan as I did.  I mostly prefer my post-diagnosis diet since it forces me to consider every ingredient and to cook from scratch more.
    • LOL, that might put it into perspective if I explain it that way. 
    • I am very interested in this too. My daughter tested negative for celiac, but has terrible primarily neurological symptoms. Because she tested positive for SIBO at the time and was having some GI symptoms, I was told it was just a Fodmap issue.  I knew better and we have been gluten free for 2 years.  Fast forward to this February. She had a SIBO recurrence that I treated at home with diet and herbal antibiotics because I couldn't get the insurance referral. She was doing great. Then stupid me brought in gluten containing chick feed for the new baby chicks we got.   Feed dust everywhere. Total mess.  Really, no GI symptoms (she was SIBO free by then)...but the neurological symptoms! my daughter couldn't walk for three days. Burning down one leg, nerve pain in the foot. Also heaviness of limbs, headache and fatigue. Better after three days. But unfortunately she had a TINY gluten exposure at that three day mark and had another severe reaction: loss of balance, loss of feeling in her back and arms, couldn't see for a few seconds, and three days of hand numbness, fatigue, concentration problems.  Well, I actually contacted Dr. Hadjivassilou by email and he confirmed that the symptoms are consistent with gluten ataxia but any testing would require a gluten challenge. Even with these exposures, antibodies would not be high enough.  His suggestion was maintain vigilance gluten free.  I just saw my daughter's GI at U of C and she really only recognizes celiac disease and neurological complications of that. But my impression is that gluten ataxia is another branch in the autoimmune side of things (with celiac and DH being the other two).   At this point, I know a diagnosis is important. But I don't know how to get there. We homeschool right now so I can give her time to heal when she is accidentally glutened, I can keep my home safe for her (ugh, that I didn't think of the chicken feed!)  But at some point, she is going to be in college, needing to take exams, and totally incapacitated because of an exposure.  And doctors state side that are worth seeing?  Who is looking at gluten ataxia in the US?
    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?
