Healthy Choice makes an excellent soup and this chicken with rice soup in a microwavable bowl is no exception. The soup is delicious and overall fairly healthy for you.
I like that the soup provides a good deal of chicken, vegetables and even the rice tastes fresh! The broth is also very tasty. Healthy Choice makes a high quality chicken noodle soup than most other brands because they include chicken and rice while keeping limits on fats, sugars and cholesterol.
One look at the ingredients shows us more positives: There are no trans fats and the soup has almost zero saturated fat. It is also extremely low in cholesterol. However, it does contain sodium (480 mg per serving) so if you need to watch your sodium intake please consider this before buying this product.
Unfortunately, sometimes the top lid is difficult to remove and then you have to handle the bowl very carefully to avoid spilling the soup. The soup is filled up almost to the brim of the bowl; and so it’s easy to spill a little! The top lid is somewhat cumbersome and doesn’t really help enough when it’s on top of the bowl inside the microwave oven, either. The cover didn’t completely cover the soup bowl in the microwave and some soup spilled inside the microwave. And yes, you DO need a solid surface on which you can open this container otherwise you are almost certain to have a spill because the soup bowl is filled completely.
Overall, the soup itself is excellent. The packaging, on the other hand, is nothing special. The cover lid is cumbersome to remove and inside the microwave soup can spill out through the cover. I think that the packaging drives the cost of this soup higher than it otherwise might be. The packaging needs to be changed; perhaps Healthy Choice could make a slightly higher bowl so that the soup won’t easily spill out when you remove the plastic lid.
I highly recommend this for people who love chicken soup with vegetables and rice if they don’t need to worry about sodium in their diets. If you are bothered by the packaging, however, then try another brand. Five stars for the actual soup combined with three stars for the packaging makes this a four star review.

While the product may be tasty and fine, the nutritional information displayed here (100 calories for the entire bowl) is incorrect. I visited the Healthy Choice website to verify my information — the soup is 100 calories per cup. Nearly 200 calories for the entire bowl.
This is really good soup, all thats missing is a good piece of bread and some butter…but I guess then it wont be healthy anymore
