Lipton: Hearty Chicken Noodle Cup-A-Soup

Alright, so here’s the deal.  With all of the changes afoot around here it seems like now’s as good a time as any to introduce a new reviewer, right?  You all remember Derek, don’t you?  Well when he packed his bags and headed home to Indiana we had a void to fill.  Well, a couple of voids really.  There was the void in our office, but also the void on the site.  See, Derek said he’d continue to send in reviews but I don’t see anything yet.  I’m still waiting on a Church’s Chicken Tasty Lie.  JUST DO IT, DEREK.

When they filled his place in the office I think we were all pleasantly surprised with the person they chose.  The thing is, you’re always afraid a dick will show up to take an open spot in an office and screw up the flow.  That  didn’t happen.  Instead we ended up with this pretty cool chick named Nikki.

As has become standard, she was forced to do a Tasty Lie review.  It’s a rite of passage in this office.  You’ve got to be part of Tasty Lies, because it’s awesome.  Now my coworkers just need to make sure she keeps submitting things.

And hopefully they don’t hire a dick when I’m gone.

So today Nikki is reviewing a Lipton Cup-A-Soup.  I think it’s definitely a step up from Cup O Noodles.  This one’s got actual meat in it.  I know the quality of the meat is questionable, but it’s better than no meat.  Check it out!


Soup in a coffee cup!  This soup actually looks like pretty decent chicken noodle soup.  I’m not sure what it is about chicken noodle soup that always looks good.  It’s my go to whenever I’m feeling a bit under the weather.  The broth in this is nice and bright, there’s a bunch of noodles and even quite a few chunks of chicken.  Let’s check out the real deal!


It’s quite a bit more frothy than it was above.  The box shows a clear broth.  Perhaps it would settle down to that though if left standing.  It makes it a bit hard to see chicken but I see plenty of noodles and the broth color is right.  Let’s see what Nikki thinks…

Hello Tasty Lies and tasty lies followers.  My name is Nikki and I’m making my debut review on this blustery winter morn.  Today I will be reviewing Lipton cup-o-soup.  Upon rekindling my love/hate relationship with red wine last night, I found myself needing some comfort and warmth.  Enter hearty chicken noodle (with white meat) cup-o-soup!  One of my co-workers asked if I’d be making it in a cup to which I replied “of course, idiot!  It’s CUP-o-soup.  I can’t very well make it in a bowl!”  It’s probably the simplest soup to make—even easier than my beloved ramen.  All you have to do is heat up a regular sized coffee cup’s worth of water(6 oz or so)  in the microwave or use the hot water-spout from your office coffee machine, which is what I did because I’m very lazy.  Then you open the pouch and dump in the chicken flavored powder and parts and voila!  Soup!  For the “work” required to make the soup, I’d say it’s a pretty great value.  It tastes like chicken, which is all you can ask for from soup out of a paper pouch, it was warm and believe it or  not, I do feel a bit better.  They could stand to throw in a few more noodle thingies for texture, but overall it’s definitely worth the $0.15 per packet it roughly costs.  Whether it’s a rainy fall evening or a hungover winter morning, Lipton cup-o-soup satisfies.  Boom!  Tasty lied!
