Literally tastes like HOME MADE! When i am sick, all i want is soup from scratch-i do not buy canned soup, and obviously, if i am sick, i do not have the strength to make soup myself, so this is what i eat! i believe that for colds and flu, people should not take all kinds of pills, it should be soup and tea, and so whenever i shop here, i get many jars of my favorite soups so that when i DO get sick, i don't have to worry, and this soup will surely make you feel healthy again, because it is delicious, healthy, and all natural, without all kinds of preservatives and chemicals-it is what it is supposed to be! thanks Russian Shop for making people happy and promoting good health, and healthy eating habits! i would highly recommend this soup!
