I like Aldi's Tomato and Basil, but just tried their Cream of Chicken and Mushroom, and it was pretty grim - lots of fatty bits of ?chicken - yuck.

Looking for other Aldi soups that are okay, or can anyone recommend something from the Tesco basics type range?

It's not Tesco, but I quite like the Asda smart price Tomato soup.

OH says lidl's tomato is nearly Heinz.

Asda's mushroom soup.

hmm - food for thought. I like Heinz tomato but generally only get it for like 4 tins on offer.

And of course if Covent Garden is on offer, get that.

@twirlbaby thanks for the tip - will try that one.

Tesco lentil and bacon is lovely.

We think Aldi’s Cream of tomato is almost identical to Heinz- if not a bit nicer!

Ace - on tomorrow's shopping list - I've only seen the tomato and basil one, but will look out for cream of tomato

Asda red lentil and chicken noodle soups are lovely and 45p I think

Agree with pp, Aldi's cream of tomato is very good!
Coop do a good bean soup it's under 60p.

Aldi’s carrot & coriander is really nice

Do you have Jack fultons? This week ours has knorr packet soups 20p or 6 £1 if any use.

Lidl chunky chicken and veg, or beef and veg. Delicious. They do cheese topped rolls on the bakery section as well wink yum!

Pretty sure the marks and Spencer's chicken soup is 50p a tin and my kids love it.

Have just tried the Asda cream of mushroom. For 39 pence that was pretty good.

We have a co-op in the village - next time I'll have a look for their 3 bean and tomato one. Looks promising.

Thanks everyone

Sainsbury's Tomato & Three Bean Soup, from the Be Good To Yourself range is now one of my lunchtime staples. £0.45. It tastes good, it's cheap, not very calorific and really does fill you up. (Sorry I know you asked for Aldi and Tesco!)

makae your own - easy and way cheaper. soups are so easy to do. made a lentil bacon and tomato tonight that will keep me going for ages.

freeze some. use when needed - much nicer than shop bought and couldnt be easier or cheaper to cook.

i also have a £4.99 hand blender from tesco which i use to whizz my soups to preferred consistency.

cooking your own takes 30 mins. stock and whatever you want in it really. but google recipes. honestly doing your own is a revelation!! ill never buy a tin again!

I buy fresh soup in Tesco for £ and add a third more water to make it go further

Lwmommy Sat 09-Feb-19 23:22:58

This site is really good for finding discounts on brands so i can tell you covent garden soup is currently £1.17 in Tesco half price

misstakenone Sat 09-Feb-19 23:26:25

oh no I was going to recommend the aldi chicken aldi mushroom!! I love it!!

elephantoverthehill Sat 09-Feb-19 23:32:11

My Dcs love Aldi Chicken soup, it has carrots and pasta in it. It's in a big can and less than a quid I think.

Aldi garden pea and mint, also their chunky beef and veg or chunky chicken and veg, think they are 55p each, very similar to the same but by Asda that is 65p or Heinz big soups, very nice

Lidl carrot and coriander soup is great.
Asda lentil soup is lovely
