  • Very Good
    1/2'd the cheeses to cut the sodium. Good! - 1/25/20

  • O.K.
    We found it very salty - even with a 50% less salt broth. Not our favourite - 1/4/13

  • Incredible!
    Delicious. I deviated a bit because I didn't have xanthan gum and I had 32oz of broth instead of 28oz. Also added a little more onion, celery, and butter. It's a bit watery (I'm guessing that's from the lack of xanthan gum) but still very tasty! - 12/16/12

    Sorry for the late reply: Xanthan gum... found at a health foods store. But you may possibly(?) be able to find it at wal-mart in the vitamin area. Hope this helps... Shell~B
