Someone made it for me once and I was nearly sick, had to throw it down the sink while they weren't looking.

It does exist. You can get packet mixes, as far as I was aware it is called French Onion Soup.

You can get onion gravy mixes and granules (like Bisto), might be worth trying one of those made up thinly instead?

It's called French onion soup so it sounds like they don't have the version you need.

Sorry! Someone will help soon..... grin

Is it not just french onion soup?!
Tesco online can be funny in their search results though. Try just searching onion and see if anything comes up in the soup aisle (speaks from bitter experience trying to find the bloody coffee ice cream)

its called french onion soup!

yes, french onion soup!

I sometimes find that not every product I want is on the online shoppy thing <can't imagine onions and apricots though!>

how about by brand, like heinz onion soup, or campbells?

foxinsocks Sat 06-Jun-09 18:18:14

can you get the tinned stuff instead? or will it not work?

how odd that they have stopped it in packets.

Unless they've come over all poncey and are calling it Soupe à l'oignon, I suppose...

Ooh I love it. Have never had it out a packet, though.

TheProvincialLady Sat 06-Jun-09 18:21:12

Please, please just buy some chicken sauce.

It really bothers me that someone out there is mixing packet soup and apricot juice and eating it <boak>

PortAndLemon Sat 06-Jun-09 18:34:10

It's Knorr Packet French Onion Simmer on (the packet clearly says soup, though)

P&L is right
Tins, Packets & Jars > Soup > Packet Soup > Knorr French Onion Simmer

Tesco online shopping will only show you what's stocked in the shop that they get it from (not necessarily your absolute closest Tesco, but the closest big one usually).
