Bekah wasn't happy that our chicken corn chowder had bacon in it. She, very loudly, proclaimed that it should've warned her about the bacon in a larger font on the can. I, her roommate Josie, had no idea that she hated bacon. Apparently, it never came up.
Upon pouring the chowder into the pot, the first thing Bekah noticed was the severe lack of corn. Wasn't that supposed to be one of the main ingredients? I thought it looked fine, but Bekah likes her food a certain way and I just try to stay out of it.
Bekah and I purchased this chicken corn chowder at Stater Bros. on one of our dangerously-not-so-often grocery trips. The soups were on sale for $2 per large can. We assumed they were big enough to feed both of us, so we bought four. Bekah picked three and I picked one. I don't remember which one I picked because I honestly don't care as much as she does.
"I made homemade soup for you Josie. I am such a good roommate," said Bekah. For the love of everything, I hope she's being sarcastic.
Initial observation when pouring into our bowls: it's definitely meant to be a cup of soup, not a full bowl. That's what the can advertises, so I guess we couldn't be all that critical.
We sat next to each other at our kitchen table because it's pushed up against our wall, making it impossible to sit across from each other. I'm typing up this review and Bekah is scrolling through Instagram singing "Car Wash." Bekah really wanted more corn in her soup. An outsider would think that this dinner was awkward, but they obviously don't know us very well. We could be far worse.
Upon tasting, I could immediately taste the "Light" part of the soup. The most flavorful part of the taste palette were the potatoes and... they were bland. Would I eat this again? If it were offered to me or was on sale again, probably. Bekah is sticking to the fact that it needed more corn.
"Don't tell me it's corn chowder if you're only going to put 5 pieced of corn into it."
She says it would be good if you added a can of corn to it. Despite the fact that she doesn't like bacon, she didn't feel overwhelmed with the taste. However, she was pleasantly surprised about the amount of chicken in her soup. According to her professional opinion, it was an average and boring soup.
On a scale of one to five, one being a cheeseburger off the McDonalds dollar menu and five being a gourmet meal, Bekah gives it a 1.89 and I give it a 1.1 for being slightly healthier than the cheeseburger.
