Progresso Swag! (giveaway post)

Okay, people.  I have a crazy awesome bunch of news to share with you and a giveaway! 

Progresso got in touch with me and sent me a killer pack of awesomeness in celebration of their Souper You debut!  I received fifteen cans of their light and 100 calorie soups, a calorie counting jump rope and a mug.

Dan and I tried out two soups last night: 

Light Chicken & Dumpling and Light Italian Style Meatball.  Both are 1 point (for you weight watchers,) per serving.  That's 80 calories per cup, two servings per can.  We both ate the whole can.  The chicken and dumpling was pretty good - I only had two bites.  The Italian Style Meatball rocked.  Little bits of pasta and I'm telling you, the meatballs were really delicious.  I wasn't sure how I'd like them, but they were great.

Dan and I have been huge fans of Progresso soup for a long time, so this was really awesome.  The variety in the soups they sent just blew my mind.  I have three varieties of Chicken Noodle soup (my favorite) and they even sent some Onion soup!  Who knew?  So I'll be doing a few reviews as I come across soups I really like or ones that aren't so great tasting.  I do know that low cal soup is one of my favorite options when I'm watching calories, and especially when it's cold outside.

So.  I want to tell you guys about the contest they're doing!

That gift pack you got from Progresso is awesome! I absolutely love their soups, definitely great when you're doing the whole Weight Watchers thing! The Italian Meatball is good but my favorite is totally the Chicken & Dumplings (I just had it last night as a matter of fact, haha).
