Our opinions: Compared to most of the soups we tried, this bone broth had a deeper flavor. It also had the best chicken from a consistency factor. There was an abundance of noodles, chicken, and carrots and celery. Although the herb content is a little on the bland side, the natural ingredients make this a good option for when you’re feeling under the weather or just want something warm to eat in a bowl.

Our opinions: Don’t let the box deter you from trying chicken soup; it’s worth a shot. Only this one included peas in the mixture of vegetables. The onions were also a plus; they had a nice zip and were mild and sweet. The spiral noodles were hearty and had a nice consistency. However, chicken should not be skimped on in chicken noodle soup—where is the chicken?

In our opinion, if you enjoy cream-based soups, this is a nice choice. The broth featured a mild chicken flavor and a pleasing creamy consistency. There’s even a note of bacon in the broth. There were plenty of carrots in this one.

Granted, a can of soup is absolutely handy when youre feeling sick or ill and have no energy to whip something up from scratch in your kitchen. But although a chicken soup does have immune-boosting ingredients like carrots, celery, onion, and garlic, according to Cedars Sinai, a canned soup, on the other hand, is typically high in sodium.

When we’re feeling under the weather and want to feel better quickly, it might come naturally to reach for a warm bowl of chicken noodle soup. However, you might want to refrain from heating up your favorite canned soup the next time you feel like you have a cold. It turns out that if the food you usually eat on sick days comes in a can, it might be more harmful than beneficial. It appears that canned soup, especially Campbell’s brand, isn’t the healthiest choice for a sick day. This is one that we guarantee you should totally abandon when you’re sick and instead choose a homemade option, even though the glass ceiling has broken and you now reconsider your entire sick day routine.

If you’re unsure about whether to eat other soups, remember that the key is to keep things light and healthful. Steer clear of creamy or cheesy soups because they contain a lot of fat and can make it difficult for your stomach to digest mucus. So throw away the can, pick up a pot, and relax knowing that a satisfying homemade soup will help you get back on your feet quickly and won’t break the bank!

Why the big fuss over sodium? According to HealthCentral, when youre sick it is not uncommon to see a spike in your blood pressure as a stressor like a cold or the flu can elevate your blood pressure temporarily, which is why avoiding high levels of sodium is recommended to avoid further health issues (via Harvard). Overall, its best to stick to a homemade option where sodium levels will be significantly lower when compared to a canned option like Campbells Chicken Soup which has 890 mg of sodium! Thats 39 percent of your recommended daily allowance. Yikes!
