  • Heinz BIG SOUP: Fiery chicken and chorizo – reviewed

    Let’s be honest. Tinned soups don’t compare to fresh ones, so my scoring system here is somewhat separate from the ones I judge the shop-bought fresh soups by. I am somewhat disorganised at home, so rather than ensure I have an interesting fresh soup ‘in date’ and ready to go if I happen to be working […]

Health: 200 calories for a 400g pot, which is good, but not particularly high on protein or fibre, so… meh. Taste: Meh. Vegetables suspended […]
