Carmel chicken soup mix is so good it is a necessity. My mom always my husband and I to "shop" her pantry and this is the ONLY item she won't let me take. Why you ask? Because t is the best soup base and it is becoming harder and harder to find. Every time the soup mix becomes available, I STOCK UP. If you want a chicken soup that will leave your family and friends in awe, then this is what you need.
