I recently had the opportunity to sample Gluten Free Cafe’s New Chicken Noodle Soup, courtesy of Mambo Sprouts. I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am about this! There is nothing worse than having to make chicken noodle soup by scratch when you are sick! 😉
This is the first product by Gluten-Free Cafe that I have tried and if the other products are this good, I will be stocking up! This soup is better than ANY canned chicken noodle soup that I can remember from my former gluten-days. The flavor is rich and soothing at the same time. I made it for lunch yesterday when my guys were gone, and I had a difficult time stopping myself from eating it all, so they could try it too. When I warmed the soup up this morning, so they could to take a quick sample bite before heading out, Sam was reluctant to try it at first (apparently chicken noodle soup is not his idea of breakfast food!). It took some coercing, but he finally agreed to try it. After one bite, he took the entire bowl (I even caught him licking the bottom of it when the soup was gone, LOL!).
Ingredient and nutritional information for the Gluten Free Cafe Chicken Noodle Soup:

As you can see, this is a gluten-free product that has been fortified with vitamins, minerals and fiber to address the specific needs of those following a gluten-free diet! That is super cool in my book. Click the following link to read more about Gluten Free Cafe’s Product Fortification.
All of Gluten Free Cafe’s products are GFCO Certified, which is becoming more important to me by the hour, especially after Tricia Thompson, MS, RD recently published an article on the Contamination of Naturally Gluten Free Grains. For more reading on this disturbing matter, Tiffany Janes just published an article on Celiac-Disease.com about it. The Celiac Sprue Association also has a Seal of Recognition program that is helpful when shopping for GF products.
So, where can one buy this great GF Chicken Noodle Soup? It is temporarily unavailable on the Gluten Free Cafe website, as they like to supply stores with the product first. The soup is not listed as an option in the store locator section of the website either, so I called Gluten Free Cafe to see where we could find this soup. This is a brand new product, so it is just now rolling out to natural grocery stores (including Whole Foods) and some of the bigger national chain grocery stores; so be sure to keep an eye out for them. I did find the soup on Amazon, but it is also currently unavailable. However, you can sign up on Amazon to be notified when it is available for purchase. I will definitely be ordering some for the next flu season!
If you have any questions, you can contact Gluten Free Cafe by email (through their website); or for immediate assistance, you can call their Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-434-4246 (Monday – Friday, 7:00am-12:00 & 12:30-5:00pm MT).
I want to take a second and tell you a little about Mambo Sprouts:
Mambo Sprouts Marketing, headquartered in Collingswood, NJ, develops and executes direct mail, retail, web and market research programs targeted at health, natural and organic products consumers. In existence since 1996, the company was created when its founders recognized the lack of educational materials and discounts available to health and natural products consumers. In response to this need, Mambo Sprouts, the industry’s first and only quarterly direct mail coupon and offer program, was created.
I highly encourage you to visit the Mambo Sprouts website and sign up for their free coupon mailer. You can receive coupons via email, the postal service or both. They also do contests and giveaways and have a fun kids section with recipes and free coloring activities!
