Having already been super impressed with the other Bear Creek soup mixes I tried, I was very excited to see that this line carried a Chicken Noodle Soup flavored mix. A big favorite among all the members of the family, and very convenient to have on hand now that cold and flu season is almost upon us, I was quite anxious to give this product a try. Read on to see if Bear Creek Chicken Noodle Soup mix is another winner, or turned out to be a dud.
Bear Creek Chicken Noodle Soup Mix is packaged in a nine point three ounce bag that promises to make a half gallon of soup. The front of the package pictures a very enticing bowl of chicken noodle soup, with large noodles, a very appetizing looking broth and tons of carrots and peas. I paid only two dollars for this bag of soup mix, since my local grocery store had further reduced the price of the Bear Creek soup mixes due to an overstock. This was certainly a bargain, although the normal price of $3.99 for the same size package is still a very good price.
Preparation of Bear Creek Chicken Noodle Soup Mix is just as simple as the other soups in the line. After bringing eight cups of plain tap water to a boil in a large saucepan, the entire package of soup mix gets whisked in. After reducing the temperature under the pot to a medium level, the soup gets simmered uncovered for approximated ten minutes. The soup should be stirred at intervals to prevent sticking and to ensure that all the flavors and elements of the soup mix get properly combined.

While the soup simmered away on the stove, I was fairly certain that my family would love this meal. The chicken noodle soup filled my kitchen with a delicious aroma that made the chilly Fall evening just a little bit warmer and cozier. Once the soup was doled out into bowls, I found that my prediction was correct. My husband and daughters both loved the homemade taste of this chicken noodle soup mix. The broth was very flavorful and contained lots of egg noodles, carrots, corn and peas. The soup was very filling and went wonderfully with the salad and loaf of bread I served that night. Overall, I was just as pleased with the chicken noodle soup mix as I was with all the other varieties in the Bear Creek Soup Mix line. I give this product an enthusiastic five out five soup stars.
