I totally agree! Bought several 5 pack boxes as I've loved this product for years. Lumpy, thick and tastes more of chemicals than chicken!
PLEASE change it back....................,

Totally Agree, Disgusting, I too thought I got a bad batch, but bought another but no, same as the first, the colour is different, the smell is different (pretty gross) lumpy and nasty, and this is the improved one, hey chichen soup people go back to what we like, because I for sure will never buy the wall paste you advertise for chicken soup anymore, maybe you need to employ better soup tasters in your testing centres , cos that is rank

I fully agree, The New recipe sucks. I thought it was a bad batch but after opening 20 packs they were all the same. I normally use 2 sachets to one big cup and it was nice. Now its lumpy and yellow and stinks

“Horrid inedible revolting ”

Written on: 04/02/2017 by Clairecolwell (1 review written)

I have been buying this product for many years and when I bought a new pack and tasted it, I thought there must have been an issue with that particular box. There was no mention of any changes. Unfortunately the next box I bought was equally disappointing, that went in the bin! The taste is different, as is the colour, texture and smell. The new stock is absolutely disgusting...who does your quality control or looks at your customer satisfaction. When it comes to feedback, I rarely give… Read Full Review

“New Recipe is awful”

Written on: 03/02/2017 by jainsl999 (1 review written)

I was a big fan of their chicken and veg cup a soup. The new recipe yellow version is truly awful. Batchelors - please, please, please revert it back. I am now wary of buying any of the new recipe versions of this product. I will be looking to find some of the older ones before they disappear completely or seek another brand. I would have given it 0 stars if possible… Read Full Review

Absolutely agree. At first I thought maybe i had a sachet that had gone off. So tried another. Was it that the water wasn't boiling long enough. No as the third attempt it was still lumpy, still tasteless. Get it sorted out Bachelors!

“ Bachelor's asparagus cup a soup with croutons 2016 ”

Written on: 05/01/2017

We have enjoyed bachelor's cream of asparagus cup a soups with croutons every day for years. The only fault was , not enough thickness to fill half a cup . Compared to other flavours e.g..cream of veg. But then at the end of 2016 . Every packet was awfully. NO Taste. Thicker but no asparagus at all? So I complained . Was told by bachelor's they had "Improved recipe" ' And they will note feedback? I have purchAsed 3 more boxes . And they are all DISCUSTING. I tried A cup today for… Read Full Review

“Chicken Cup a Soup New recipe ”

Written on: 02/11/2016 by McGinnis232 (1 review written)

I have liked Batchelors Chicken Cup a Soup for many years. I have recently bought the new 5 sachet pack ( 25% Extra Free ) and am really disappointed. It says on the box in very small letters "New Best Ever Recipe" and it is definitely new - and horrible! First thing you notice is the colour which is now quite yellow rather than the previous shade of cream, then the consistency which is now thicker, lastly the taste - what have they done? It is completely different and has a slightly sour taste… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/11/2016

I totally agree with the review above, my wife and I usually have a chicken cup a soup every afternoon and have done so for quite some time now. Recently we stocked up with a dozen or so box's of chicken cup-a-soup and could not believe
how horrible the taste was, we thought we had bought a inferior brand by mistake
then we noticed in small letters"New Best Ever Recipe" well if Batchelors dont revert back to the old recipe we will not be buying any more, and the box's of the new stock we are left with will go into the bin.

Written on: 28/11/2016

When I first tasted this "New Best Ever Recipe" My best hope that It must be a bad batch missed by Quality Control & thing would only get better so I gave it another try New box. But no A tast that's hard to describe but vile! consistency of wall paper paste, it won't even fully dissolve in boiling water leaving big lumps in cup (Ugu)
After years of buying at least one box of this a Week I'll have to find a replacement. :-(

“Chicken Noodle cup a soup”

Written on: 21/08/2012

The soup itself isn't to bad although that's not saying much. It was the noodles itself that were the problem. They were tastless mush and made it sickening to taste. Sorry not tried the other flavours and going by this one wouldn't want to. G… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/07/2010 by AndrE77 (1 review written)

I used to buy Batchelors tomato soup and that was good, but today I bought the Oxtail soup and that was disgusting, though Oxtail soup is my favourite. It did not taste at all like oxtail soup, had a bad smell and looked like some milk with cocoa with a sticky taste. This was a pure waste of money. Moreover, I had a very bad taste in my mouth after couple of spoons - actually tasted 100% E-s'. Very artificial… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2017

Totally agree, their chicken version went from 2.7% chicken stock right down to 1%.

Now tastes like hot water with a hint of nothing special (aka. dishwater). This product should have never got into production. Thats our family and friends moving onto other brands now...

Written on: 12/01/2010

I bought a selection of Batchelors newly launched Cup-a-soups recently. In the past I had always found that they were very good so I was happy to try their new range.
I bought cream of vegetable, chicken noodle, chicken and sweetcorn and golden vegetable - quite a selection. In the event I found them all to be totally without flavour (dare I say dishwater) with bits of dried vegetables floating on top. Regardless of the packet description they were all equally tasteless and the remaining ones… Read Full Review

Totally agree, all their new cupa soups all taste like dishwater.

For the company management to allow this rubbish must mean their business is in trouble!
