“What went wrong?”

Written on: 25/03/2017 by 77Fox (1 review written)

Opened the new pack of Chicken Cup A Soup, noticed there were 5 instead of 4 in the box, OK so far. However, it wouldn't stir properly and was a sickly shade of yellow. Didn't taste much like chicken or even soup really, in fact I never saw any chicken at all. Made me feel a bit sick because I was convinced it must have gone off or something. Not buying anymore until old recipe is restored. Can't imagine how anyone thought this was an improvement over the original, it now looks and tastes… Read Full Review

“Batchelors Chicken C A Soup new recipe? ”

Written on: 19/03/2017 by RedcarBear (1 review written)

The first new 5 sachet pack I bought seems to have a new recipe, it is an unappetising yellow colour, is almost un-mixable and a too thick glue like consistency. I wont be buying any more of the Batchelors Chicken Cup A Soup until there is a change in the recipe… Read Full Review

“Cup of Yukky Blob.”

Written on: 01/03/2017

I too believed it to be a faulty batch but alas it is not. I find it amazing someone out there believed this new revolting concoction tastes anything akin to chicken soup at all? Are you for real Bachelors? Absolutely vile tasting and who on earth is going to buy another box after tasting that disgusting attempt at chicken soup. Incredible own goal Bachelors!… Read Full Review

“Chicken Flavour Has Become Vile”

Written on: 25/02/2017 by AbramMason364 (1 review written)

So bad I actually thought it was a bad batch until I googled. Its gone from a lovely chicken flavour with a clean, thin but very tasty substance, to a dreadful cosmetic gloopy, lumpy YUK in a cup! I am astonished and it goes without saying that I wont buy it again, after probably 10+ years of enjoying it. Others in the office have done the same. Obviously the concept of "if its not broke, dont mend it" has not filtered through to Premier Foods… Read Full Review

The new recipe chicken cup a soup is disgusting. Its like tasteless wallpaper paste (with lumps). They changed the recipe apparently because someone said the old recipe was a bit too herby. I will not be buying any Batchelor's product ever again… Read Full Review

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

Cooker8's Comment

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.

Petesellit's Comment

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. :-(
