I really appreciate Fig Foods' whole and healthy approach to their soups. What more could you want from a soup? :)

i 100% agree. what you get in your cooking is only as good as what you put into it. and although that's great for our tastebuds...it's the most important for our bodies!

I really enjoy soups especially in the fall and winter. I appreciate Henry's approach to make soup with all the ingredients that look good and are local (organic). I will definitely try Fig Food Co. soups.

I like that soups are made just like if you made them at home.

I've never tasted Fig Co soups but from what I've seen I know I would like them. I am always looking for low sodium and organic products. Would love to win this so I can explore your foods. Do you make any products with figs in them? I recently tasted a fresh fig from Whole Foods and loved it!

It's nice to eat soup that tastes like what you see (veggie chunks) as opposed to what you don't (salt).

I'm very happy to learn about these soups; sounds exactly like what I've been looking for: organic, vegan, plenty of protein and vitamin A, BPA-free packaging, and no saturated or trans fat. Glad to hear that they taste good as well!

What a wonderful philosophy - " to make the world a better place." If we all felt that way, the world would be a better place.

When I think of comfort food, soup is at the top of my list now that I've taken on the challenge of healthy eating. Salt is my favorite thing and having only a minimum amount of it in these products got my attention as salt/sodium is the main reason I don't buy prepared soups. The product looks great and knowing the story behind it makes it all the more attractive.

As someone who makes her own soup in the winter, I do think a lot about what goes into my soups, but also when I am enjoying someone else's soup as well. When someone has put that much love into their soup, you can taste it. It has the right amount of flavoring and I always find myself trying to guess what exactly have they put in it for spices. And what better way to get more organic ingredients into people's diets than soup? I agree with Joel Henry's philosophy. That is some serious love he puts into the creation of his soups. I have not tried Fig Food Co. soups as of yet, however I plan on heading out this weekend to get some as I love a good bowl of soup for these sort of cool Fall days we are having where I live.

I and my fiancee are vegan, 75% raw vegan. Even though I know that the digestive enzymes and nutrients remain in plant-based foods not cooked over 118 degrees Fahrenheit, there's nothing like a good cup of soup on a chilly day to make you feel nourished and cozy. I am startled that I have now found a co. that is not only totally plant-based, but also organic. Eating organic is so important for the body. All the chemicals placed on our foods are slowly, and in some cases "quickly" causing cancer. People will soon have a one in two chance of being diagnosed with cancer, and much of this is due to the food eaten. Joel Henry's soups take that stat into account and only select plant-based foods, which are natural, and toxin free. I am impressed and blessed to know there is such a line of soup on the market as "Fig Food Co." Thank you, Joel Henry and family. You have touched many people's lives, saved their health, saved the environment, and I wish you to expand your product line even further...perhaps some raw soups (: Thank you!

Powerful punch of veggies—sounds flavorful and healthy. Maybe there's even a fig in the soup from time to time?

What can I say. I love figs!! The nutritional value alone is worth exploring all the delicious things you can make with figs. They can be cooked or eaten raw, used in recipies to enhance nutrition and give them a new twist. It wasnt until I was older that I realized why my mom always had figs as a staple in the house. She knew the healthy benefits figs have for children. I went on to give them to my own children and now my grandchildren enjoy them as well. Try them, your like them!
