Tasty, thoughtful, and wholesome. What a great model for a family experience that can be sustainable and socially responsible.

We're big fans of Fig Food soups. It's nice when the stuff that's good for you actually tastes good, too. And Joel's relationship to farmers is really exemplary. We always try to make sure we have some of the Yucatan Black Bean on hand, for when our schedules get out of hand and we need to heat up a quick meal. (They're good to take to work, too.)

Sounds good! I'll have to look for it next time I'm at Whole Foods. Just in time for Fall!

I love soup, any soup, and I can eat everyday. Organic soup is the way to go! I like Henry’s soup philosophy "connecting to other people" through soup. Nice!

I always look at the ingredients in the food that I buy because I really care what I choose to put directly into my system. I have so much appreciation for those who work so hard to put the highest quality ingredients together for a tasty yet natural source of food. Much support to Henry's philosophy because the more natural the food, the better it tastes :]

I chose to weatch this video because I love the product. Now after watching the video my appreciation of their products have broadened even further. A customer was buying one of their soups after I watched the video and I couldn't help but explain all the things I'd learned. She was thrilled to hear just how connected the company is to the local farmers who grow their ingrediants.

These soups sound really great and healthy. As just learning that my 7yr old son has multiple kinds of allergies and intolerances our whole household eating lifestyle will be changing. With just starting to research about different food options for our new family adventure it's been very nice to find out about companies like this one who work very hard at bringing us so many different options that will work with the food options that we do still have. And even though our family will be eating differently due to our one little member it's going to be healthier for all of us but most importantly it will make him healthier and feeling better. Thank you Fig for giving us the different options we need to have our lifestyle change!

I wonder if Fig does meat-based soups? I'd love it if they had some with grass-fed beef or pastured chicken, or maybe some seafood type soup.

My favorite is changing daily as I try each new soup, but right now, my fave is Yucatan Black Bean, and yes, I do add a dash of my own light salt!

I love this! I make soup all the time in this same way...whatever I have on hand plus some fresh herbs or veggies from the garden or farmers market. Its great to see a company doing the same thing. I love the origination of their name too. Since I am an avid soup maker myself, I don't often have to think about what goes into the soups I buy, because I look for soups that are made as I would make them.

Finally a producer who gets it with soup and the sodium. If you we're making it at home, would you just take the lid off the shaker and dump all of the contents in the pot, then turn around and happily ladle the soup in the bowl for your family? Thank you for getting it, Fig. Taste the soup, not the salt.

I have been looking forward to purchase Fig Food Co. Pumpkin Puree again this year at my local Whole Foods Market but it doesn't seem to carry it anymore. Can I still have any hopes?

@D - I double checked on their website and wasn't able to find a pumpkin puree listed on their site. It's possible that they did not make this product this year. I would encourage you to reach out to them directly at http://www.figfood.com/contact.html as I'm sure they'd be happy to help!

I'm delighted that Whole Foods carrries Fig Food Company soups. My favorite soup is Nonna's Minestrone soup - delicious!! Only problem - my local Whole Foods store has been out of Nonna's Minestrone soup for several months now. What's the problem??

@DEBRA - Since our buying is done at the store/regional level, your local store will be the best to answer where the product as gone. Check with the grocery team and they'll be happy to help!

@ELAINE - Our soups differ between locations so we don't have an exact list of options. I would suggest calling a store in Chicago to see if this is normally something they carry and if so, if they have a recipe to share!
