Every Proper Good soup is also low in sodium and has no added sugars. There are tons of flavors available and also soup options to fit every diet. There are keto soups, gluten-free choices, plant-based soups, and even high protein choices. You can even sort the soup by dietary needs, making it easy to find a soup that fits your lifestyle.

Many of the Propper Good soups are made using bone broth which is known to have numerous health benefits from boosting immunity to reducing inflammation. You can even order just the bone broth- it’s almost like ordering immunity in a bag! Many of the soups are clear broths but there are plenty of creamier soups as well. The spiced pumpkin soup and broccoli cheddar soup look very dense and hearty while the chicken bone broth and meatball minestrone look a little lighter. If you love soup, you will definitely find a flavor you love here!

proper-good-how-to-soup

All of the Proper Good soups come in a sealed plastic pouch. The soup is shelf-stable and doesn’t need to be refrigerated until opened. You can open the pouch and place it directly in the microwave for 90 seconds to heat. You can also choose to pour the soup into a small saucepan and heat it on the stovetop. Both options work well!

You can purchase Proper Good soups anytime you need a good soup fix, buying individual soups, or choosing a bulk variety pack. You can also choose to sign up for a soup subscription. You can pick your soup flavors, choose when you would like your soup to arrive, and then sit back and relax, knowing you will have healthy, easy meals delivered in no time! Shop now >>

For our Proper Good soup reviews, we received one Chicken Noodle soup pouch and one Meatball Minestrone soup pouch.

Proper Good Soup Unboxing by MealFinds

Here is what we thought of these two soups.

Chicken Noodle

proper-good-chicken-noodle-soup

The chicken noodle soup is made with organic chicken bone broth making it rich in collagen. The broth is made with turmeric and ginger which gives the soup a very slight spice. It has pieces of white chicken breast, carrots, onions, and egg noodles mixed into the rich broth. The chicken noodle soup is high in protein and packed with vegetables.

We gave the chicken noodle soup a try and were pleasantly surprised. It definitely had more flavor than a regular, canned chicken soup. The broth was a beautiful orange color thanks to the turmeric. The noodles and vegetables were nice and tender. There was a perfect ratio of noodles, chicken, and veggies to broth. There was enough soup in the pouch for one person and it was a great light lunch.

  • Ingredients:  Chicken bone broth, vegetable broth, carrots, onions, chicken, celery, egg noodles, gelatin, garlic, sea salt, organic parsley, black pepper, organic ginger, organic oregano, and turmeric

Meatball Minestrone

proper-good-meatball-soup

Meatball Minestrone is made from a thick, tomato and bone broth mix. The bone broth is made from grass-fed beef bones and loaded with collagen. The soup is also full of beef and pork meatballs, farro, kidney beans, and veggies. And because it’s high in protein it will keep you full and satisfied.

We tried the meatball minestrone soup and we were very delighted with the taste. The soup had a strong tomato flavor and was also packed with barley. There were a few mini meatballs in the soup that was quite tasty. However, we would have loved a few more meatballs and a little less farro. The bowl was very full of farro which is delicious but overpowered the soup a little bit. It definitely tasted like a homemade soup that you could find in any grandma’s kitchen.

  • Ingredients: Beef bone broth, tomatoes, red kidney beans, mini meatballs, farro, carrots, onions, potato starch, sea salt, tomato paste, garlic, rosemary extract, celery, white pepper, oregano, parsley, and paprika extract.
  • Nutrition Facts: Calories 360, Total Fat 8g, Sodium 520mg, Total Carb. 53g, Fiber 16g, Total Sugars 3g, Protein 21g

In addition, Proper Good has several other soup flavors including Broccoli Cheddar, Red Pepper Meatball, Spiced Pumpkin, Butternut Squash, and Chicken Mushroom.  We didn’t get to try these this time and look forward to trying them in the future.  More on each soup is below.

Broccoli Cheddar

proper-good-brocoli-cheddar-soup

The broccoli cheddar soup is keto-friendly and also gluten-free. The chicken bone broth is completely organic and helps make a thick and creamy soup. The broccoli cheddar is made with real cheddar cheese and also has a little turmeric mixed in. This gives the soup a slight spice and a whole lot of bright yellow color! Broccoli cheddar is one of Proper Good’s top-rated soups so surely one you should try.

  • Ingredients: Chicken bone broth, broccoli, heavy cream, carrots, coconut oil, cheddar cheese, sea salt, garlic, xanthan gum, rosemary extract, turmeric, and white pepper.

Red pepper and meatball soup is a simple and delicious way to fuel and soothe your body.

Spiced pumpkin soup is a tasty and unique soup. It has a nice creamy base made from coconut milk and pumpkin but then a little bit of zing thanks to the turmeric and chili powder. The soup is made with all plant-based ingredients and is also gluten-free. It would be a wonderful addition to your holiday meal but is really great any time of year!

Proper Good Soup Reviews: Recycling Program

Proper Good is very into recycling and has worked hard to make recycling everything you receive with your purchase recyclable. The cardboard pouch topper and envelope are widely accepted at recycling centers but the plastic pouch is not. Proper Good sends a pre-paid envelope that you can mail back your washed pouch. Then, they will recycle it for you! Pretty easy, right?

Proper Good Soup Reviews: Bottom Line

proper-good-soup-and-spoon

Proper Good is a great source for healthy soups, all of which are big enough to enjoy as a full meal. The soups are all made with nutritious ingredients and, with a range of unique flavors and options to fit most dietary needs, you will never tire of soup from Proper Good.

The subscription service will ensure that you never run out of tasty soup and the recycling program will help you feel good about your purchase.

We loved the clean ingredients that were put into every pouch and appreciated the care that Proper Good took toward making a great product. The soup definitely tasted homemade and high-quality, like something your grandma would make or a soup you would find in a restaurant. We also loved the free spoon that came with our soup!

And while Proper Good soup is more expensive than grocery store soup, we would consider this product more of a filling and hearty meal.  When compared to other prepared meal options, this soup is on the lower end of the price range.  We would also love to see a variety of soup sizes so we could feed the whole family soup.

I would recommend Proper Good to anyone soup lover out there. The pouches are easy to take with you on the go and the numerous flavors all sound amazing.  Shop now >>

Enjoy!
