“Sour bitter soup plus non existent customer service ”

Written on: 04/02/2022 by Daughertyho180 (1 review written)

Purchased my favourite flavour soup, Leek and Potato from Sainsburys on 18 Dec 21. Best before was 5th Jan 22. We had it on 4th Jan 22. There must have been a rotten leek in the mix as tasted foul! Threw it away and phoned customer service line on 5th to make them aware. Got a recording saying they would get in touch in 24 hours, nothing. Phoned again on the 10 Jan. Same message, still no response. Phoned again on 25th. Same message, still no response. They obviously don't care about customers… Read Full Review

“Too watery, just too much water and too little vegetable”

Written on: 28/04/2020 by HarrisonMcMahon323 (1 review written)

I’ve tried a couple of these soups lately, remembering them from years ago to be good. I cannot abide any of them, they are so watery now. The chicken one is too thin. The mushroom one is like tiny grated mushroom in boiling hot water. Not good value at all… Read Full Review

“Horrible Covent Garden Mushroom Soup”

Written on: 12/01/2020 by Emilio1982 (1 review written)

I used to buy this years ago, in the '90s, and it was good. It looked good and tasted wholesome and rich. I bought some today because it was on special offer at Waitrose. First thought - it doesn't look as it used to. The texture isn't nearly as appealing and there's something rather artificial about it. Then, upon serving, my husband and son both asked how much water I'd added. Answer - none. It's so so bland and unsatisfying. Really horrible and not a patch on its former self. I'll never buy… Read Full Review

“unwanted protein”

Written on: 15/04/2018 by RhysAnderson258 (1 review written)

I purchased a carton of Covent Garden tomato soup from Asda store in Cardiff sometime in February of this year. When tiding up the fridge today (13th April) I noticed that the use by date on the carton was the 8th March so proceeded to dispose of the contents to enable me to recycle the cardboard container. On emptying the soup in the sink I noticed a black stringy object that I initially thought was part of a plant but on closer examination found it to be a spider of quite some size. I realise… Read Full Review

“Not good”

Written on: 05/02/2016

Bought root vegetable variety, unpleasant look and flavour, could only manage one spoonful and that was enough. Shame as packaging and marketing and price I was expecting something delicious… Read Full Review

“1.2 inch bone and a ridiculous £10 voucher to...”

Written on: 14/05/2015 by 1956Williams (1 review written)

Purchased the chicken and black pepper 700 ml carton from Tesco. Upon eating suddenly felt immense pain on the side of my mouth and on my back tooth, reached in before the offending item could be swallowed and found a 1.2 inch bone in my mouth, sharp and jagged and it had scratch my inside cheek. Let the company know via Twitter, got a response of "crikey...sorry to hear that" then sent a £10 voucher as compensation and a tough luck but we don't care letter. Awaiting a response from them now… Read Full Review

“Not what they used to be”

Written on: 22/01/2015

New Covent Garden Soups were consistently good for many years - it seems that is not the case anymore: One a few occasions now, I have bought Minestrone and Tomato Soup respectively - each time I was very disappointed by both. Since when does Minestrone include smoked bacon bits? - it is meant to be a vegetable soup with pasta! Both lacked seasoning and flavour, were poorly prepared and unpleasant to look at and of a disagreeable texture - other reviewers seem to have had similar experiences… Read Full Review

Poor excuse for vegetable soup from the Covent Garden Soup company. Looked like chunky vomit when poured out of the packet & didn't taste much better than it looked… Read Full Review

“Yuck they are nasty”

Written on: 09/02/2014 by Malcolm1965 (1 review written)

I purchase three different soups to try from The Covent Garden Soup Company this weekend 07/01/2014. I really enjoy soup and expected them to taste like the very best of home made but better. How wrong was I!? Potato and Leak Soup. It was course, looked like it had been roughly blended and resembled vomit when served in a bowl. My wife makes much better soup than this and she has no training! Lentil and Bacon Soup, couldn't even face trying this despite the fact that this is my number 1… Read Full Review

“Minestrone Soup”

Sorry to say that this one does not tick many boxes with me. The product was so heavily herbed that it might be re named Miniherbs. Not up to their usual standard at all !… Read Full Review

“All Covent Garden Soups taste very natural and fresh....”

Written on: 16/11/2010

All Covent Garden Soups taste very natural and fresh. They seem to use the best freshest ingredients and make lovely tasting soup. They have 23 soup flavours in there 600g cartons and also do Big and Bold soups and smaller 300g cartons of soups. They are sold in all supermarkets with Sainsbury taking all of them and Asda taking very few. The carton can be tricky to open, it being a milk carton, but i have the knack now. I have been eating these for 10 years and they are consistently good and… Read Full Review
