Happy New Year, everyone!
It’s been an exciting few weeks for us! The weather has cooled down, and soup season is finally upon us. We’re excited to share with you the arrival of not one, but FOUR new soups!!
They’ll be available at a bunch of locations around the state: Middlebury Natural Foods Coop, Hunger Mountain Coop, Upper Valley Coop, on UVM campus, and at Healthy Living in Burlington. Stay tuned for more locations soon!
You’re probably wondering what the four new soups are. The first one to hit the shelves was our second Chicken soup—Chicken & Stars. A delicious twist on a classic chicken noodle soup, the Chicken & Stars is the perfect way to warm up on a freezing winter day.

We came out with a new vegan soup, as well: Four Bean. The Four Bean soup contains lentils, chickpeas, pinto beans, and kidney beans. It’s hearty and delicious—full of roast tomatoes and fresh herbs. This soup is nice and filling—you don’t need to pair it with anything to fill yourself up. However, if you’re ravenous—or just trying to have a smaller bowl of soup—it’s delicious with a grilled cheese, or served over a bed of rice.

The last two new soups we’ve released are a Portuguese Style Stew, made with VT Chorizo sausage and fresh clams, and a Loaded Baked Potato soup. Both are spins on classic soups—the Portuguese Style Stew is a rich and healthy stew, with a touch of Saffron. And the Loaded Baked Potato has all of the best parts of a baked potato: the toppings! It’s full of VT Cheddar cheese, VT sour cream, fresh scallions, and (of course) VT nitrate-free bacon. This soup is made almost entirely from ingredients produced in the state, which is something we strive for.

We’re excited to be releasing these new flavors of soup, and we hope you are too! As always, we love to hear feedback on our products—let us know if you’ve tried our new soups, and tell us what you think!
Have a wonderful day!
