Bought a single package of this at Jungle Jim’s International Market in Cincinnati just to see what it was like. Excellent! I used smoked turkey instead of ham or bacon.

Came back to the website today and bought a BUNCH of various soups.

Keep up the quality, great-tasting products!

It’s my son’s 10th birthday, and your Split Pea is his favorite flavor! I just put in a huge order for my mother-in-law’s birthday (she turned 80), and she was thrilled!

This soup mix came with a Nueske ham I received as a gift. I usually do not care for soup mixes – they taste somehow artificial, salty, etc. – but I just made the soup with the ham bone and it is really, really good. I’ve already had one bowl and it’s not even time for lunch!

I will look for more of your products.
