We’ve really been trying to avoid GMOs in my family. That tends to mean very few prepackaged foods unless they are organic. Organic condensed soup runs $2-3 a pop, which is LUDICROUS to me! So I came here (of course) and found Specialty Soup Substitutes - Cream. These are my easier, lower fat versions.
