Progresso "Get More Fiber This Season Giveaway"

“Over 100 years ago, the business now known as Progresso Foods started. A young Sicilian, Vincent Taormina, first imported foods from Italy to meet the need for high-quality ingredients familiar to Italian-Americans. As more family members became involved and importing grew both in volume and locations, the business merged in 1927 to become the Progresso Italian Food Corporation and the Progresso label was born. It is now part of General Mills and continues to adhere to the original premise of providing high quality food ingredients at a reasonable price for the discerning home cook.”

Growing up in an Italian-American household, Progresso was a household name. You could have called literally called us the "Progresso's."

Progresso has changed a lot in the past 100 years and I am sure this will not be their last product. Sign of the times perhaps but Progresso soup is no making a high fiber soup. I was excited with their low sodium soups and now knowing that a cup or bowl of soup will increase my fiber intake by 7 grams (a full 28% of your daily fiber intake) is another reason I will always stick with Progresso.

This review couldn't come at a better time either. This past week while I was sick with an upper respiratory infection and a sinus infection I received my box from Progresso and My Blog Spark. 

The box contained two oversized soup mugs, 2 Progresso spoons and a can of Chicken Tuscany

Soup is just what the doctor ordered and the Chicken Tuscany was awesome. Over the past week I have eaten about 4 meals this being one of them. It was hearty, taste amazing and my 4 year old ate 50% of the can. The next one I want to try is Creamy Tomato Basil. Love tomato soup!!!

Progresso also has Hearty Vegetable and Noodle

and Homestyle Minestrone

Added fiber and everything you already love about Progresso is what you will find in their High Fiber soups.

Progresso and My Blog Spark wants a lucky winner to try the soup for themselves.
