A Souper You Debut Giveaway

Recently, prior to the events of the last couple of days, I was sent some Progresso Light Soup to sample from the wonderful people at Progresso through MyBlogSpark.

So far I have tried two of the soups. The first one I tried was the Light Zesty! Santa Fe Style Chicken. I was a little skeptical that a light soup would be good. Soup is already fairly light but with this soup I was proven wrong.


I loved it. It was zesty! and had more than just broth and rice in it. I was surprised. I will be adding this to the soup lunch circuit. I could spice it up a little more with a little of cheese.


The next soup that I tried was was the Light New England Clam Chowder. Being a New Englander, I have discerning tastes for chowder. This was a disappointment.


Where were the clams? I could find few clams. The broth separated a little bit when the soup started to cool down and that turned me off.


I will stick with Campbell’s version of the Light Clam Chowder.

I have the opportunity to give away a yoga prize package with two cans of Progresso soup to one reader. I will pick a winner on Tuesday evening.

All you need to do is tell me what Progresso soup flavor is your favorite? I recently tried their World Recipes Albondigas soup and I liked it!

Progresso has a contest of their own going on. All you have to do is stop by Progresso’s Facebook page to win a fabulous trip to New York City  and:

  • Go to Progresso on Facebook to learn more and enter the contest
  • Submit your essay (200 characters or less) telling Progresso why you love their soups that contain 100 calories or less, and why you deserve a chance to win a trip to NYC for a full fashion overhaul
  • In addition, please submit a photo of yourself that visually reinforces the theme of your essay

They will pick 10 finalists on March 10 and from March 30 – April 4th you will be able to vote for your favorite. Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City from May 20th-22nd. The prize includes round-trip airfare, a two-night stay in an NYC hotel, a full makeover, a guided wardrobe shopping spree with a personal consultation at a New York City department store, and $1,000 in spending money.

I was given the samples of soup and a prize pack from the generous people at Progresso through MyBlogSpark.  The opinions expressed are 100% my own.
