There is never a drop of this soup left! I think it's the absolute best of it's kind. It's almost a meal in and of itself!

I thought it was lovely...not sure why the lower raters expected a "creamy" soup...this is NOT cream of broccoli soup, it does NOT deserve low ratings! This recipe is easy and tasty, a pleasure to both make & eat!

I really love this soup. I thought I would be disappointed since it was not as creamy as I wanted, but the nutmeg flavor was awesome, and the addition of slightly moire velveeta helped make it thincker. I will certainly make this again.

Was hoping for a creamier soup. Taste was slightly above average, but given the huge calorie & fat content - I probably won't make it again.
