Review: These Hanover soup bases are a welcome addition to the freezer at our house. Using them is like making real, homemade soup in a fraction of the time. I tried the Chicken Noodle and Maryland Crab flavors for testing purposes. Both were so good that I stocked up on those two as well as the Chicken and Rice and the Bean Soup mix. All featured fresh-tasting vegetables and just the right amount of seasonings. You can add meat and other vegetables or serve as is. I may never open a can of soup again.
