I want to thank you so much for all you do. I get your products at the local food pantry. If it was not for you and your generous donation, my family and I would have many nights without dinner. What you have is so good and thank you so much for all you do. It’s so very much appreciated in more ways than one.
Susan, Illinois – July / 2014
I bought a package of your Mushroom Stroganoff. I added some low fat sour cream, can of mushrooms and a can of cream of mushroom soup. I used the juice from the mushrooms toward the 1 cup of water needed. It was spectacularly delicious and vegetarian. I’m not real big on meat. I will absolutely be looking for more of your products in the grocery store!
Julie, Michigan – July / 2014
Fantastic Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup!! Don’t change a thing!!!
George, New York – July / 2014
The Cheesy Enchilada Pasta Side is a very good product. Just thought you needed to know. Thumbs up!
Carol, Tennessee – July / 2014
I really enjoyed your Chicken Enchilada Soup and looking forward to enjoying you’re Chicken Noodle Knockout next.
Marsha, Minnesota – July / 2014
Your soups are the best I have had in a long time. I have tried your Chicken Noodle Knockout, Creamy Cheddar Broccoli and Chili Fixin’s.
Paul, Pennsylvania – June / 2014
I just want to let you know that your soups are the greatest soups I have ever tasted. I work at Walmart Supercenter in New Jersey. We just started carrying your soup products several months ago. I have told everyone how excellent your product is. As a matter of fact I am making onion soup now – even though it’s 80 degrees outside. I wish we would carry the rest of your products. Thank you again.
Kim, New Jersey – June / 2014
I’m really, really impressed with your product. I don’t like something that’s not homemade. So I was laughing when my friend told me about your product. The Chili Fixin’s Mix is so good- I am impressed.
Bonnie, Pennsylvania – May / 2014
Cugino’s pasta sides were on sale at Woodman’s. We bought three varieties: Enchilada Mac, Creamy Red Pepper and Mushroom Stroganoff.
I just made the Mushroom Stroganoff for my lunches this week. It tastes incredible. That is better than anything I’ve had out of a package, let alone a restaurant. It tastes high end (I did add a can of mushrooms for extra volume). My family is so impressed and looking forward to trying out the other flavors we purchased and other products from your line. AMAZING.
Kandyce, Wisconsin – April / 2014
I just tried your French Onion Soup. My father prided himself on his French Onion Soup and this mix, rivals his!
Pamela, Illinois – April / 2014
Please meet with Kroger and convince them to carry your garlic spread. Walmart has soup but no spread. Formerly from Crystal Lake, IL and used to buy your product at Kalck’s -sure miss the world’s best mushrooms-now Buckeye AZ
Linda, Arizona – April / 2014
The Chicken Noodle Soup is marvelous. I am a cook from scratch type of person. I am not feeling well and your package caught my eye in the store so I thought I would try it. The texture of the noodles and the broth are perfect. It also smells absolutely delicious. I am looking forward to trying the other flavors you offer.
Maryann, New Jersey – March / 2014
Just wanted to let you know my husband and I have tried the French Onion Burgundy Soup and absolutely love it. We purchased it in Boardman, Ohio and can’t get enough of it.
Linda, Ohio – March / 2014
I love making your soups. I share them with my friends, family and even my church. I like the Baked Burgundy French Onion (I add a pile of onions to it) and the Chili Fixin’s. I also love the characters on the packaging.
Tom, Wisconsin – March / 2014
I am 85 years old and have made soup all my life. My daughter-in-law made yours and brought it for me to try. It’s better than any soup I have ever made. I love the potato and the onion.
Mary, Michigan – March / 2014
Hello! Just wanted to tell you that your soup line is amazing! I am already creating new recipes with several of them and look forward to trying the rest of your line! Love the note on your packaging to community. When a company delivers quality, commitment to its community and a great product they need to be told! Thank you for great taste and attention to detail in health and suggestions on your packaging. I found your soups in Walmart, Reno, NV. My family is now a fan!!
Sheila, Nevada – February / 2014
Your Onion Wonion Dip is top notch (and does not have added MSG like competitors). I have also used your Mama’s Minestrone, Chili Fixin’s and Chicken Noodle- flavor very good, easy to prep and price is right at Menards. My suggestion would be to add a vegetable beef soup where we would add the beef.
Chuck, Minnesota – February / 2014
HOW DO I THANK THE OWNER/MAKER OF THIS WONDERFUL SOUP?! I had a wisdom tooth pulled Monday and my husband went to get me some soup. I told him not to get me any in a can. He came back with a packet of Chicken Enchilada Soup-Ease and I thought to myself, “This looks interesting.” I couldn’t eat any solid food so soup was my only choice. I popped it in the microwave as it suggests and MAN OH MAN WHAT A WONDERFUL SOUP!!!!! Just wanted to let y’all know that… all the way from Texas!! It’s the best Chicken Enchilada soup I’ve ever had… I’m having creamy potato today…AND I LOVE IT, TOO!!! THANKS FOR SUCH A GREAT SOUP AND AN EASY TO MAKE ONE WITH LOW FAT AND CALORIES!! WOOHOO!!!
Pilar, Texas – February / 2014
Just tried your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup mix and it was wonderful! So great to have “homemade” soup so fast! It’s really delicious and not overly salty. Can’t wait to try the other varieties! Thank you for a great product.
Carrie, New York – February / 2014
I had a Chili Party and made six packages at one time. Your product is so good everyone loved it!
Kim, Ohio – February / 2014
I just want to tell you, your soup is great. I tried them all except the Chicken Noodle because I make my own Chicken Noodle. Thank you for putting these out on the market.
Susie, Illinois – February / 2014
Just wanted to let you know my husband and I have tried the French Onion Burgundy Soup and absolutely love it. We purchased it in Boardman, Ohio and can’t get enough of it.
Linda, Ohio – February / 2014
We just recently discovered Cugino’s soup mixes at our local Walmart. We love, love, love them. The onion soup is as good as or even better than some we’ve had in fine restaurants. Thank you for sharing your talent with us, the consumer.
Bobbie, Wisconsin – February / 2014
I tried your product, Mama’s Minestrone Soup last night. Checking out the package I saw that the soup is ridiculously delicious. I would say the soup is very delicious but not ridiculously delicious. Lol.
We will be buying the product many more times and we will be trying your other products. Thanks for producing a tasty product not infused with salt and crazy chemicals.
Paul, North Carolina – February / 2014
First time I have tried one of your products, which is Creamy Cheddar Broccoli soup…. it was delicious! Too often complaint comments are written … well this one is “thank you” for a great tasting product!! I will be buying more items in the very near future. Have a great year!
Sue, Pennsylvania – February / 2014
By chance I saw your soup in Bed, Bath and Beyond in Annapolis, MD. I bought the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup. I love onion soup and this is one of the best anywhere I have ever had. It was so good I went back and got 6 packages to use for a party and to have on hand. Everyone here loves it. I will be trying more of your products. You have a fan here.
Mary Anne, Maryland – January / 2014
I just served my husband Mama’s Minestrone- outstanding! It was flavorful, hearty and so easy to prepare. We are now fans. Onward to the Vegetable!
Judith, South Carolina – January / 2014
I recently bought (at Walmart) some of your Chicken Enchilada Soup and Chicken Noodle Knockout Soup. Gave the Enchilada soup to a friend and she raved about it. I made the Knockout soup and took to work. Co-workers raved about my “homemade” soup. I haven’t told them about Cugino’s yet. Guess I will spread the word.
Dave, Indiana – January / 2014
Tonight was the first time I have tried your products and they were really good. I had the Red Pepper Pasta and it had such a great flavor. This is something I will be buying again.
Carla, Pennsylvania – January / 2014
I went to Menards and bought the Lemon Chicken and Rice. They had to get it down from the top shelf. They said the Lemon Chicken was a good seller. It was really good.
Mary Lou, Illinois – January / 2014
Best Chicken Noodle Soup ever. I used to buy (competitor’s soup). I found yours at Walmart.
Trevor, Illinois – January / 2014
Hi, I just wanted to thank you for all your awesome products. They make my family’s day so much better. Your products are so good we hate to ever buy anything but it. As a father of 6 I want to also thank you for keeping your prices low in times like these. With it being so close to Christmas it means so much for families just like mine that are struggling just to get by.
Author, Ohio – December / 2013
Your soup is awesome-It’s better than (competitor), less sodium and more flavors. It’s better for you, and you put your toll free number on the packaging. I found it at Menards but will check my Walmart too. My mother and I love the pictures on the pouch. I like the giving back you do, too.
Lori, Indiana – December / 2013
I am so impressed with the French Onion Soup. It is simple, quick and so delicious. Tastes homemade- it’s the best soup I ever had. I am going tell all my friends, in fact I am going to make baskets for Christmas. I really enjoyed my dinner. I also bought Chicken Enchilada.
Shannon, South Carolina – December / 2013
I have just returned to Hyderabad India, I am SO unhappy that I only brought 1 Mac & Cheesy Enchilada with me. THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE TASTED IN YEARS!!! OMG it was perfect! I can still smell it… Since I am in India I am sure there is no way I can get some here so I am your newest fan and I will be home soon! Thank You for selling this in Texas! May your profit line be as GREAT as your food!
Robert, Texas – December / 2013
Thank you for your delicious soups! So far I have tried the Perfect Potato Soup and the Chicken Enchilada Soup. I appreciate how simple they are to make and how much they taste like soup made from scratch. I have tried a lot of soup mixes over the years and nothing has ever even come close to the quality and taste of your soups. I was first made aware of your soup mixes as a result of working at Menards. Menards is a home improvement store based out of Eau Claire, WI. Menards has a grocery department in their stores. As I was shopping one day for groceries at Menards, I noticed your soup mixes and decided to give them a try. WOW! What a delightful surprise! I am a huge fan of your soup mixes and plan to try your other products as well. Keep up the good work. Thank you so much for creating such great products.
Mary, Kansas – December / 2013
The Cheesy Enchilada Pasta Side was just delicious. I used diced tomatoes and green chilies. I added it right in. I live alone.
Joe, Texas – December / 2013
I bought and made the French Onion soup for my dad, who will be 89 years old on Jan. 1, and he loved it! I have never made homemade French Onion soup before and I found this to be easy and very tasty! I served it with crusty French bread and shredded provolone… it doesn’t get any better than that!!! Thanks so much for making my life easier… I can use all the help I can get! Happy Holidays to you!
Marcy, Ohio – December / 2013
I tried your chicken knockout soup. Where can I purchase more? This was a gift. My family loved it. Thank you.
Sue, Oregon – December / 2013
I like your chicken enchilada instant soup very much. I think if you were to include stove top directions on all your products and advertise in hunting/fishing demographic you could possibly have a dramatic increase in sales. Great Job!!
Al, Arkansas – December / 2013
My family eats your soups every Sunday for the entire 16 weeks of football. I have two teenage boys, and their friends who all eat a lot and often. I would like to try all your soups throughout the season, but they also like the ones we have tried so far. Thank you very much for making wonderful, healthy soups that are easy and quick!
Kristi, Illinois – November / 2013
I saw your TV ads and bought your Chicken Noodle Soup. I am critical of Chicken Noodle Soup. Good job. I am going to try all your other soups. It was a big test for me. I added carrots, celery, and onions. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you- it makes my life easier.
Pat, Illinois – November / 2013
I purchased Cheddar Broccoli Soup at Walmart- it is absolutely delicious.
Vicky, Pennsylvania – November / 2013
I purchased two each of your three Soup-Ease flavors from one of your vendors and just wanted to give you some feedback. I am a BIG soup eater and purchased these with the intension of adding them to my “Git Bag”-this kit allows you to grab it and “git” outta town and live out of it for a minimum of 48hrs.
After trying all three I have to say I am impressed. Having eaten “instant soups” all over the world I have developed a few standard procedures, the most important in my opinion is to use warm water and after mixing, let the mixture sit covered for at least 30 minutes to re-hydrate before heating. All three of your soups are very tasty with the chicken enchilada being my favorite. If you cut the package fully across at the pre-nicked point, the empty packet holds almost exactly one cup.
I just placed an order from your store for a variety pack of the Soup-Ease and a Premium Pasta SIDES Variety Pack to try.
I frequent a number of camping/backpacking and also a number of survival and former military oriented forums. I plan on posting reviews of your Soup-Ease products on them. Soup of this quality and in small light weight packs is a real treat. No more (competitor’s instant soup) for me. Roughing it never tasted so good!!!! Now if you could add Chili and split pea soup I will be a happy camper.
Jim, Georgia – November / 2013
We just tried your French Onion Soup- bought it at Mariano’s. It was delicious- almost as good as homemade. We want to try some of the other favors. Thanks.
Gerry, Illinois – November / 2013
The Chicken Noodle is absolutely a knockout. I added 7 cups chicken broth, onion, celery and carrots. It was to die for. I am 73 and tired of starting from scratch. This is fantastic.
Patti, Texas – November / 2013
I have had the Chicken Enchilada, Chicken Noodle and Lemon Chicken& Rice (which is like going to a Greek restaurant).I always bought (competitor’s) soup. Then they started watering it down. I then bought (another competitor) and have been making that. I was at Walmart in Livonia, Michigan and was able to sample your soup. I was so impressed- I bought a package. Then I figured if it was that good, your other soups must also be good so I tried the others. I have been telling all my friends. There are 3 steps and easy to make. I went back three days later and there were only a couple left. It sold like hot cakes. Your soup is 30 cents cheaper than (competitor) and tastes 100% better. This is homemade tasting, thank you for coming up with these soups. They really are good.
Kathy, Michigan – October / 2013
The soups you make are very refreshing. Today I am having the Chicken Noodle Soup-Ease. I also have the Chicken Enchilada and Creamy Potato Soup-Ease. My daughter went to the store for me and picked this up. I appreciate you making a 1 cup soup. I live by myself and this way I don’t have a lot of left overs.
Agnes, Texas – October / 2013
Absolutely love your products. I love the packaging, I love the content- we go crazy over them.
Cathleen, Texas – October / 2013
The Chicken Noodle Knockout was given to me. I do daycare and made it for the kids. They love it. I added chicken, corn and green beans.
Lorraine, Washington – October / 2013
I tried the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup and it was delicious. I bought it at Le Gourmet Chef and it really is great.
Estella, Connecticut – October / 2013
I have to thank you for the fantastic soup mixes- especially Chicken Enchilada and Baked Burgundy French Onion. I am not normally a “soup mix” buyer. I was blown away with yours. Thank you, thank you.
PS. I have told so many of my friends about these products.
Liv, Florida – October / 2013
I just wanted to tell you I have been eating the instant dried soups for a while now, but I literally just finished eating a bowl of the individual sized chicken enchilada soup for the first time and for lack of better words, all I can say is HOLY SNAP!!! It was amazing!!! It literally was better than any other I’ve ever had, even better than restaurants with classically trained chefs. So as I’m sitting here with my mouth hung open, agog, laughing at how amazing this instant, microwave soup is, I decided I had to email y’all and let y’all know that you’ve seriously hit this one out of the park (not that the others are bad or anything), but this one is incredible! Keep up the good work and for the love of God please don’t stop making it! Thanks and have a great day!
Jenny, Virginia – October / 2013
My daughter just had her wisdom teeth taken out (3 of them, ouch). We were looking for something for her to eat other than just mashed potatoes. We have wanted to try your Creamy Cheddar Broccoli Soup, so we decided now would be a good time. We are HOOKED! She is on her second bowl and just told me that I need to pick up more when I go out tomorrow. Thank you so much for offering such a great product!
Shannon, Georgia – October / 2013
Your Chili Fixin’s mix is SO DELICIOUS. I am a diabetic vegan, and I love spicy foods. Your chili really hits the spot for me. YUM! And thank you!
Jolene, Washington – October / 2013
We love your soups. Please continue to make more vegetarian options
Hilary, Michigan – October / 2013
We tried the Cheddar Broccoli Soup. We love it- I love it, my wife loves it. I put it over vegetables- it’s great.
Barry, Indiana – October / 2013
The Alfredo Florentine is really good. We really enjoy it and cannot find it again. Please get them in all the stores I want to buy more.
Eileen, South Carolina – October / 2013
I have just discovered your Soup-Ease soup mix. It is so popular that our local Walmart cannot keep it on the shelf; therefore, I am shopping online. Delicious! Will you be adding anymore flavors to this line? I would love to have more variety. Thank you.
Joelyn, Georgia – September / 2013
I just thought I would give you some feedback about the soups I have bought. The dry soups I purchase are pretty much the most delicious soups I have ever had in my life. They taste homemade, and just simply amazing. In the fall and winter time, when the weather is cold and wet, my husband and I have your soups at least 2 times a week, and it is the most comforting food. Thank you for making such great products!
Sanela, Oregon – September / 2013
Hi There. I just wanted to give you guys some positive feedback. I just purchased my first soup-the Greek lemon and rice mix. I am thrilled with it. I added cooked chicken and sprinkled some feta on there-delicious! As I was stirring the soup, I noticed your business is in Crystal Lake. I grew up in Crystal Lake! I lived in various suburbs before moving to North Carolina and now beautiful Colorado. I’ve lived in CO for 6 years now. It’s crazy that I discovered your soup only now that I’m in Colorado and not when I lived in Crystal Lake. Anyway, I was tickled when I saw your business is in CL. I read your story and values- I love it all! Hats off to all of you. I will spread the word to others about your quality product, especially to my family who still live in CL. Thanks again for an awesome product. Sincerely, CL Native Nicole.
Nicole, Colorado – September / 2013
Love the Mandarin Teriyaki Marinade. It was absolutely fabulous and I love the label, too.
Catherine, Illinois – September / 2013
This is just like homemade. I have been buying these products for 3 or 4 years. The Baked Burgundy is a killer soup. I can make this soup and everyone that tries this says it’s so good. It is ridiculously delicious. At Christmas time I gave your soups to my daughter. I get a kick out of the packaging. Don’t stop making this stuff. Your product speaks for itself.
Ron, Wisconsin – August / 2013
Just tried your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup – Excellent!
John, Canada – August / 2013
Your Lemon Chicken & Rice is to die for- my granddaughter loves it!
Rosemary, Michigan – August / 2013
The Lemon Chicken & Rice Soup is the closest thing to homemade. I also added lemon juice.
Maureen, Kentucky – August / 2013
We tried your Burgundy French Onion Soup last night and absolutely loved it! It is so easy to make and tasted better than a restaurant. Thank you for making such a great product!
Jackie, Texas – July / 2013
Love your soup! Purchased Soup-Ease at Walmart and recently at Big Lots where they were half off. Directions were easy to follow, cooks fast and very tasty. I would like more single packets in all flavors.
Bonnie, Oregon – July / 2013
Our Walmart recently began stocking some of your soup mixes, and I bought the Lemon Chicken and Rice. The flavor is absolutely amazing, and I am so impressed with it! I plan to try the other selections soon! Congratulations on creating such a tasty product!
Mike, Tennessee – July / 2013
You make the best stuff! I am an old family mom that makes stuff from scratch. I don’t know why but I tried your Perfect Potato Soup and it was really, really good.
Jackie, Minnesota – July / 2013
I purchased your Lemon Chicken & Rice at the local Acme, haven’t seen it again so I will have to order on line. FELL IN LOVE WITH IT, but I will look at Walmart, too. Thank You!
Patricia, New Jersey – June / 2013
Hi! I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoy your products. Your prices can’t be beat. Your products are our favorite. I always recommend them to my friends and family. You are The Best out there. Thanks for keeping us happy.
Levi, Ohio – June / 2013
The Chicken Enchilada single serving is outstanding. I didn’t think that they could make such good tasting soup in one cup. I just had to tell you it was outstanding.
Rosemarie, Indiana – June / 2013
The Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup is out of this world. Normally I don’t even like French Onion Soup but this was so good. I have to track it down.
Pam, Wisconsin – May / 2013
Hello, I recently purchased your Lemon Chicken & Rice Soup at the Walmart Supercenter in Lebanon, Oregon. What a great product at a really good price! It was the main component of our soup and salad night! I must say that I was skeptical about flavor and taste… but it lived up to your “Ridiculously Delicious” claim. Keep up the good work!
Matt, Oregon – May / 2013
We love your Mama’s Minestrone Soup. I received it from a mobile unit when we were living in a hotel after our home was affected by the storm. When I made it we really liked everything about it. I could not find it in any of our local stores so I tried a different brand. We did not like the other brand at all so I told my husband to try and look Cugino’s up on his iPhone. I am so glad I can get my Mama’s Minestrone now.
Alisse, New Jersey – May/ 2013
I just wanted to take a second to let you know how much my husband and I love your Chicken Enchilada Soup. My husband is in the army, so he is always coming and going at different times. It’s so great to have your products in the pantry so I can make us a fast meal that’s delicious. Thank you for all the hard work you put into your products. We greatly appreciate it.
Thanks and have a great day!
your loyal customers
Stephanie, North Carolina – May / 2013
Just found your single serving instant soups at Big Lots. I’m THRILLED to take them on my backpacking trips this summer. With a 3 oz. can of chicken or shelf stable bacon/bacon bits for extra calories/protein, will be just like home! Thanks for packaging the single servings!
Connie, Ohio – May / 2013
I make your Chicken Enchilada Soup and it’s really good. I add a carton of Big Cup Noodles – Spicy Chicken Flavor and 2 cans of 4 oz. chuck chicken. I cook it according to your directions. It is so good I could eat it every day.
James, Illinois – May / 2013
I tried your soup mix for the first time and it was absolutely delicious. It was fabulous, quick and easy. I really like that you give to non-for-profit organizations, too.
Constance, New Hampshire – April /2013
You said that you welcome comments on your products; well I really like the Chicken Noodle Soup. I am on a diet and it has nutritional value along with protein. I bought it at Walmart and only got 1 package. I will be returning in the next day or two to buy more.
Marion, West Virginia – April / 2013
The Chicken Noodle Soup is awesome. I was looking for an easier to make, really good soup. This recipe is right on.
Ryan, Florida – April / 2013
I tried the Perfect Potato Soup- it was excellent. I got three flavors and can’t wait to try them all. The potato was great.
Gary, Pennsylvania – April / 2013
Your products are absolutely THE BEST!!!!! Soups are better than moms… please don’t tell her. Thanks for your great products.
Dan, Illinois – March / 2013
I thought I would give the Chicken Enchilada a try. I added corn and beans; it was as good as a restaurant.
Dottie, Florida – March / 2013
In my house we love to eat your SOUP-ease, my boyfriend’s favorite one is the Chicken Enchilada and mine is the Chicken Noodle one. They taste so great! Keep up the good work at making great food- can’t wait to try out some new ones hopefully.
Kristen, Florida – March / 2013
Oh my!! Just did some home French fries. I tossed some of the DIPZ mix on them, and they are Delicious!! Great product!! I used Garlic Schmarlic. I just sprinkled it on my freshly deep fried French fries, and tossed them.
A great taste sensation!!
Sally, Kansas – March / 2013
Just wanted to let you know how much I love the Chicken Noodle Soup. Just the right spices and the noodles are soooo good. It makes a great meal on a cold night. Will pass the word on about how good it is.
Donna, Kentucky – March / 2013
Just tried your broccoli cheese soup and it is very good, much better than your gourmet dry soup competition.
Clay, Indiana – March / 2013
I am a new consumer. Your Onion Dip is the best. You have knocked it out of the park.
Bill, Florida – March / 2013
I had the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup. I didn’t make soup; I put it on my roast. It’s to die for. It is really, really good.
Steven, Texas – March / 2013
We have tried most all of your products, and I must say it all ROCKS…You guys don’t make one bad thing. My family and I love all of your stuff and we eat it pretty much daily. Thanks for making such good stuff!!
Richard, Illinois – February / 2013
Just tried your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup mix- OMG the Best Ever! Purchased the soup at Walmart in Orlando, Florida.
Steve, Florida – February / 2013
I just wanted to tell you that I tried your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup last night and I loved it. I wasn’t expecting much with a dry seasoning packet, but it was great! I just wanted to let you know.
Terry, IL – February/ 2013
The Chicken Noodle Knockout is the most outstanding soup I ever ate. I received it in a gift basket and I would like to find more. It is really a knockout.
William, Kansas – February / 2013
I just wanted to let you know how much my husband and I enjoyed your Lemon Chicken Rice Soup. I only found it per chance at a Walmart store, had not seen it anywhere else. I thought it sounded intriguing and was not disappointed. I will definitely recommend it to my friends. I will also try some of your other soups since this one was such a hit. Thank you,
Heidi, Texas – February / 2013
I bought a pkg. of this soup at Big Lots and it set in my cabinet for almost 3 yrs. I was cleaning out the kitchen and I ran across the box and tossed it in the trash, then that little voice that you must always listen to said “open the box” so I retrieved it from the top of the pile and opened the box where I found this space age looking silver, vacuumed sealed envelope in perfect condition, I was surprised. It looked like a backpack meal, freeze-dried pouch and I thought well maybe I should open it and see if it was still good. I made the soup just like directed on the box. I was totally shocked to discover not only was it still good but it was great! My husband claims it’s the best French Onion Soup he has ever tasted. We always order French Onion soup when it’s on the menu, some is good, and some lacks luster. I make it at home sometimes and it’s good but honestly, not as good as yours. I went back to Big Lots, no soup. I regret that I threw away the box without retaining any info (no name or contact #). So… I have been searching the shelves of every grocer and market for 6 mos. when to my delight I recognized the distinctive art work on a pkg. of Chicken Noodle Soup on the shelf of the Pennsylvania Macaroni Co. in Pittsburgh, PA while on a Christmas shopping trip. I got my pen out of my purse and jotted down the name, web info and phone #. I am so glad to have found you and your user friendly web site. We live in WV and the list shows no stores in our state. Thank you for offering your wonderful products for sale online, I want to try a few more items and definitely more French Onion Soup. I’ll be placing my order today, And again thank you so much, you have succeeded in providing the public with a delicious product, I want to see Cugino’s on the shelves of my local Kroger’s and I would be glad to do anything to assist in that endeavor.
West Virginia – February / 2013
I had the Creamy Cheddar Broccoli. It was wonderful and fabulous. I would think you could add asparagus as well. This soup was really outstanding.
Marjorie, Wisconsin – February / 2013
I don’t ever contact a company about a product, never. The Creamy Cheddar Broccoli is amazingly delicious. I added broccoli and cheddar cheese. It was absolutely delicious. I am so impressed. I am going to try the French Onion next.
Sharon, Nevada – February / 2013
I picked up a Chicken Noodle Soup Mix. It was absolutely delicious. I am going to try all your soups. I have tried another companies and I had to throw it away. Pleasantly surprised, I tried this out and it is so good. I just wanted to thank you.
Donna, Virginia – February / 2013
Hi, I just wanted to thank you for all your awesome products. My kids just love your products so much they want it every night. My husband and I love all your products that get our kids to gather around the kitchen table for a meal. They are all delicious. As a Mother of 6 I want to also thank you for keeping your prices low in times like these. It means so much for families just like mine that are struggling just to get by. We want the best for our family and kids. We appreciate it deeply
Sue Ann, Ohio – January / 2013
Just wanted to let you know that our household has a new favorite! Your Creamy Cheddar Broccoli Soup is delicious! Thank You!
Tracy, Oklahoma – January / 2013
Hello, I just had to tell you all how much we love your products. They are really wonderful and so filling that we just can’t buy enough of them. Your products have a taste like no others my family wants them all the time. We are a very satisfied customer and we highly recommend them to everyone we know.
Marie, Ohio – January / 2013
I had my doubts until I made the Creamy Potato. I saw Ridiculously Delicious on the box and thought I had to try it and I did it was delicious.
Peggy, Pennsylvania – January / 2013
Wow! I love your soups. I made the Onion twice and Cheese and Broccoli once. They are the best. I also have the Minestrone to try next. Hope I can get them at our summer home near Delaware at the Walmart there.
Judi, Florida – January / 2013
I have tried your Chili Mix and loved it. I was kind of wary of the soup mixes thinking I would not like them. Well at my local Walmart they now have the single serving pkgs. of the soups so I decided to try it (your creamy potato) and needless to say I love it! I can honestly say it’s the best tasting soup I’ve had in a long time. Hopefully we’ll get more of a selection of your products here soon! I would love to try them all. Keep up the great work.
Tracy, Arizona – January / 2013
Your Garlic Spread is outstanding. In the 16 years that we have lived in California we have not been able to find anything else this good.
Brad, California – January / 2013
I bought 10 boxes of the Chili Fixins’ Mix. Everyone thinks I’m a great cook. This makes the best Chili ever.
Ann Marie, Indiana – January / 2013
The Creamy Cheddar Broccoli is Ridiculously Awesome! The best I ever had. I added some broccoli and Velveeta cheese. I found it at Walmart and at Copps. I have been telling all my friends and I kept a package so I can show them what it looks like. My mother is 85 and she said it is the best too. The seasonings are perfect. I also bought your Baked Burgundy French Onion.
Victoryia, Wisconsin – January / 2013
I made around 50 mushrooms with the garlic spread for a get together. There were only 3 of us 60 year olds and the other 8 were in their 20′s and 30′s and they LOVED the mushrooms. Good product!!!! It’s something I can make without actually having to cook.
Carol, Illinois – January / 2013
The Garlic Spread makes the best scrambled eggs ever! I love this stuff.
Diane, Colorado – January / 2013
We loved the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup. It was so good. We got it at Bed Bath & Beyond. We topped it with Gruyere cheese.
Jeannie, New Jersey – January / 2013
Absolutely love the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup. Always my go to meal. Thank you for doing a great job.
Marge, California – January / 2013
Wow! I love your soups. I made the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup twice and Creamy Cheddar Broccoli once. They are the best. I also have the Minestrone to try next. Hope I can get them at our summer home near Delaware at the Walmart there.
Judi, Florida – December/ 2012
My mom has cooked some soup and used a packet of your soup mix. I have to say it was the best soup that I have ever tasted. For a large family that is on a low income we have been able to stretch it without going broke. I just want to say thank you and we absolutely enjoyed it. I look forward to trying more of your items!!
Chelsea, Virginia – December / 2012
My family loved the Cugino’s Chili Fixin’s. My husband is going to take the other Chili Mix that we have gotten for years and that my mom has used for years back to the store. This is the biggest compliment. I had a coupon and we tried it on a cold night and I’m telling you I could tell by their faces. They normally only eat one bowl they had seconds. I made corn bread with it. It was perfect. I honestly believe if someone would sample your product they would buy it. People tend to buy the same thing over and over, but if they tried this they would buy it instead of their usual. I would like Sam’s to carry this. If Sam’s carried this it would be great in bulk. Very delicious, very good product & right on!
Wanda, Georgia – December / 2012
I’m happy to inform you that I have been buying your soups for the past couple of months now and haven’t been disappointed in the least bit. I really enjoy your soups because they are not the typical canned soup and they have a homemade flavor to them. My favorite is the Lemon Chicken & Rice.
Dave, Illinois – December / 2012
I am a huge fan of your Chicken Enchilada Soup. I brag to everyone I meet about it and whenever I make it share it with them too. Thank you and keep up the good work.
Carolee, Ohio – December / 2012
Mama’s Minestrone Soup, we just had it day after Christmas. I added turkey to the soup, we had no leftovers. Can’t wait to try the Rub I got.
Ernie, Illinois – December / 2012
I bought the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup at Menards. My wife put 4 onions in it and croutons and mozzarella. It was delicious even better than the cruise ships.
John, Minnesota – December / 2012
The Cheddar Broccoli Soup is excellent. That’s all I want to eat. I take care of my older mother and she loves it too. I put cool whip on it and it is so good. I hardly ever comment on a product but I had to let you know.
Cheryl, Montana – December / 2012
We are crazy for your Lemon & Chicken Rice Soup. Not even my homemade soup is as good. I added artichokes. My husband keeps asking “Can’t you make that soup again?”
Carol, New Jersey – December / 2012
I love your Garlic Cheese Spread. I put it on my spaghetti and my husband loves it. It’s the bomb.
Kelly, Illinois – December / 2012
I just want you to know how grateful I am that you have made the Greek egg and lemon soup mix!!! When I saw it in my local grocery store I actually and literally leaped in the grocery aisle!!! A Chicago-born transplant now living on the coast in North Carolina, not much Greek food to find in the south, so when I found you made it possible for me to have a taste of “home” here where I am now, I had to say, “THANK YOU!!!!” Please keep making this soup mix and I only pray they don’t stop carrying it at my local store! God Bless!
Mrs. White, North Carolina – November / 2012
I just wanted to give you a HUGE thank you! My husband recently lost his job, so I’m trying to feed a family of 5 on next to nothing. Your soups have made that VERY easy! My mother told me about them about a month ago, and since then, we’ve tried 5 different kinds, all of which have been a huge hit! So thank you for easing this mom’s conscience a little when it comes to feeding her family something that tastes good, but that is also within my very meager budget! Your soups will be a staple in my pantry from now on!
Holly, Ohio – November / 2012
We’d never heard of your company and saw your inviting package of lemon chicken & rice soup at Walmart.
I’m writing to say how incredibly authentic this soup is. My grandmother being Armenian/Greek, from the old country, she could cook! I’m afraid your soup would give hers a run for the money, and I’m very particular when comparing. With a little chicken, lemon, and salt, your soup was surprisingly creamy and absolutely authentic (think about adding authentic to your package).
Will definitely try your other foods – keep up the great work!
Gary, Georgia – November / 2012
I have eaten at Premier Steak Houses before and their steaks weren’t as good. The Garlic Butter Rub is outrageously delicious. My neighbor told me to try this product and it’s great!
Matt, New Jersey – November / 2012
In recent months I have purchased Mama’s Minestrone and the Lemon Chicken and Rice Soup, both of which I’ve made within the past two weeks. I was especially pleased with the Lemon Chicken and Rice. The Greeks have a lemon soup called Avgolemono and your mix is as good as what I have had in Greek restaurants. I added chicken and a little more lemon because we like the tartness. I made the minestrone yesterday and I was equally satisfied with that. I’ll be heading back to Bed, Bath & Beyond to stock up on more! Thank you.
Jennie, Ohio – November / 2012
I bought a package of the garlic dip this past summer. Made it when I got together with my cousins…WE ALL WERE CRAZY ABOUT IT! I drove 50 miles to the town I bought it in yesterday. Thanks for a great product….great Christmas gifts! Happy Thanksgiving!
Rebecca, Minnesota – November / 2012
Hey, there! Just tried your Baked Burgundy French Onion soup today for the first time. From a family of French Onion aficionados, a big thumbs up! What a pleasant surprise, you’ve got a new repeat customer. Keep up the good work!
Craig, Delaware – November / 2012
I bought the Chicken Enchilada Soup at Walmart. It was wonderful. I added green chilies and beans. I bought 6 more packages.
Cindy, Alabama – November / 2012
Your Chili is the best. Better than any can and any other on the shelf. I have tried other brands and they were not good. I also compared nutritional facts and yours is better in respect to those.
Robert, New York – November / 2012
I wanted good soup that didn’t take a lot to make. I had the Mama’s Minestrone and Chicken Noodle Knockout. I hope Walmart keeps this on the shelf. Cool packaging.
Mary, Pennsylvania – November / 2012
Your soup is a good value and it makes a good amount. I am going to keep buying these products providing that Walmart doesn’t stop carrying it. I have a son in college and I am going to send him some as well.
Vicki, Florida – November / 2012
Chicken Enchilada is my family’s favorite. I actually give this out as Christmas presents. I put a can of tomatoes and a can of chicken with it and it’s all good.
Betty, Idaho – November / 2012
The Silly Dilly was marvelous and I want more. I bought it when I was traveling. It was so good. Thank you for being in business.
Joan, Maryland – November / 2012
Hi, just wanted to say we absolutely love your chili mix- tried it today instead of my own recipe. Yummm! My husband can’t stop raving about it. We will definitely be buying more.
Jeannie, Illinois – November / 2012
I have only enjoyed your French Onion soup so far but I must tell you I think it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. Have your Lemon Chicken & Rice to make tomorrow and am looking forward to that. I have given the onion soup away in gift boxes and baskets at our church benefits. It is so good. I also love the character on the package with the signs to eat garlic, limes, etc. Great product!
Mariane, Wisconsin – October / 2012
Ok. I just came across your products last week, and am in love with what I have tried already. (Chili Fixin’s and French Onion Soup.) Have 3 other soups in pantry.
Timothy, Texas – October / 2012
Your soup is the best! It is restaurant quality. I made Baked Burgundy French Onion and Mama’s Minestrone. I was standing in the aisle at Walmart and as people were coming down the aisle I told them about your soup. I just had to tell what perfect quality it is.
Maggie, New York – October / 2012
We love your stuff. Born and raised in New Orleans. We evacuated around Katrina. We stayed in a hotel around Chicago with a small kitchen and found your Chili. My sister and I get it. I’ve made Chili from scratch, but now I’ve been getting this. Also, my dietician said this is perfect.
Lindsay, Louisiana – October / 2012
The Chili Fixin’s is the best mix I have ever had. Oh my gosh, it is so good. I found it at Walmart. I had to give you credit. I added other things as well. It’s very, very good. Don’t change a thing. Thank you for making this.
Robert, Ohio – October / 2012
I just made your Chicken Enchilada Soup. I served it with cilantro, cheese and tortilla chips. My family and I all really enjoyed it. It tasted like homemade soup. I will definitely be serving it again. Thanks for making something so good.
Judy, Texas – October / 2012
I was just looking at your list of stores, in NY State my husband and I purchased your soup in Walmart/Cortland. So far we’ve had the chicken noodle-made it with turkey…. its great!
Janine, New York - October / 2012
Hi, I tried your soup, Chicken Enchilada, and all I can say is YUMMY! I also purchased the Potato and Minestrone, if they are as good as the Chicken Enchilada you have a new customer on your hands. Thanks for another option in soup starters!
Betty, West Virginia – October / 2012
The best soup I ever tasted. Especially in the microwave, the SOUP-EASE Chicken Enchilada is absolutely wonderful. I lived in Texas for 25 years and never tasted Chicken Enchilada soup this good. I’m going to pass this on to all my friends. I added grated cheese and tortilla chips.
Doris, Indiana – September / 2012
I saw your Minestrone soup at Bed, Bath & Beyond and picked it up because the lady that worked there said it was good… delicious! After I had it I went and dug the package out of the garbage just to find the website and phone number to call you and tell you how delicious it was. I used to own a restaurant and I usually make my own soups from scratch, but took a chance on your soup and it was absolutely delicious! There’s nothing I would change. I’m going to have to try more of your soups because that was wonderful, and I’ll have to tell my daughters and my neighbors… You can put me down as a happy customer!
Thelma, Illinois – September / 2012
I really enjoyed your Chicken Enchilada Soup. I got it at Walmart and saw how low the sodium was and I thought I would try it. I really, really enjoyed it and will definitely have it again.
Kathy, Louisiana – September / 2012
AWESOME! I found your soups at Walmart and I am HOOKED! I’m so glad to see that if they run out I can still get them online! Minestrone so far is the family favorite but I adore the French Onion! I ate the whole thing myself! No sharing! Can’t wait to try the others!
Julie, Florida – September / 2012
We (my family and I) just tried your “Chicken Noodle Knockout” tonight for Supper. Wow I went in with an “it’s quick” attitude and boy was I taken by surprise. All 8 of my children devoured it and asked for more. Next time I’ll make 2 packages. I love how hearty it was and the broth didn’t taste like we were eating a salt block. I will be buying a lot more to keep on hand for busy, cold nights.
Bethany, Wisconsin – September / 2012
I am a professional chef and I want you to know I think you have done a great job with your soups. They are very good. Just one thing, please come out with more varieties and don’t change anything else.
Chef Norman, Michigan – September / 2012
I am almost 80 and we do like your French Onion Soup. You made it so much easier for me to make.
Claire, Kentucky – September / 2012
The Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup is fantastic & elegant. I put bread with melted cheese on it and it was really good!
Marcy, California – September / 2012
We had your Mar-Garlica Lime Rubz and loved it. The meat was delicious the best I ever had. You have a great product.
Patti, Pennsylvania – September / 2012
Your Lemon Chicken & Rice was very good. I added chicken breast to the soup and next time I will put 2 cups of chicken broth instead of some of the cups of water. I am not going to make homemade soup anymore.
Ellyn, Florida – September / 2012
Thank you for making the best products. The Mama’s Minestrone is delicious and colorful and the Chili is over the top with flavor. I made Chili Mac and Chili Cheese Fries. I will tell all my friends about your products.
Susan, California – September / 2012
I love your products, especially the single serve soups! I am sending them with my college freshman for comfort and a little snack when she might need it. Thanks again for such a great product!
Marcia, Michigan – August / 2012
The best darn soup I ever had! Today I’m making “Creamy Cheddar Broccoli” -simply delicious! I’ve made this for a potluck for work, and co-workers thought I purchased it from Panera Bread. The only regret is that I can only find it at Menards. That’s ok, buying the soup mix is worth it. I’ve also tried the potato soup, once again excellent. Enjoy your day.
Gail, Wisconsin – August 2012
My wife and I just wanted to say thanks for a great product! So far we’ve tried the French Onion and the Minestrone, both were great. The French Onion caught my eye at Walmart. I hadn’t heard of your products, but always like to try new things. Your soup rivaled any I’ve had anywhere! We tried the Minestrone next and it was equally as good. It crushes (chain restaurant)’s soups! We wish you the greatest success and look forward to new products being introduced into our local Walmarts as only one carries it right now.
All the best,
Frank and Stacy, Georgia – August / 2012
Love the Chili Fixin’s Mix!! It was super easy to make and delicious. My family inhaled the first bowl full and begged for seconds!!
Lorraine, Michigan – August / 2012
The Chicken Noodle Knockout is ridiculously delicious. Finally, a store bought soup that tastes homemade. I got this from Walmart and I’m never going to have to make homemade soup again.
Maria, Missouri – August / 2012
I am eating your Chicken Enchilada SOUP-EASE and wanted to let you know, it’s great. It’s like homemade.
Jeff, South Carolina – August / 2012
I really like your Chicken Noodle SOUP-EASE. I live alone and there are a lot of us out here, you go to the store and it’s enough to feed 5 people. This is great for just serving 1. I just want to say thank you.
Jean, Wisconsin – August / 2012
I am calling about your SOUP-EASE. Do you carry any other flavors besides Creamy Potato and Chicken Noodle? I purchased the two flavors at Walmart in New Mexico and tried them. I thought they were absolutely delicious. I would like a flavor for every day of the week for lunch and then I wouldn’t have to cook. My vote is for you to make new flavors NOW, right NOW! That’s my vote.
Jodi, New Mexico – July / 2012
I have a child and a husband and they are both picky eaters. We tried your Chicken Enchilada Soup and they really, really liked it. Normally we have (other brand) and their soup is very salty. We bought yours at Walmart and we will definitely be buying more.
Mary, Wisconsin – July / 2012
We are 70 plus and we had your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup and we just loved it. I put my own large onion in, croutons and shredded cheese on top. The seasonings are perfect. I like to go to a restaurant and treat myself to a bowl of the French Onion Soup. Now I have this.
Joyce, Minnesota – July/ 2012
I was married to an excellent cook until her passing. Since then, I’ve been on my own. I tried Cugino’s Chili Fixin’s Mix last night and thought the chili was almost as good as my wife’s. Thank you for making a product for guys like me.
Roland, New York – July / 2012
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup! I’ve always been leery about buying packaged soups but I’m glad I let my curiosity get the better of me! Very satisfying.
North Virginia -July / 2012
We like your French Onion Soup. It will always be on our list to buy at Walmart. We really love it.
Jan, Kentucky – July/ 2012
My family really liked your Chili Fixin’s. It was fantastic. I added tomato soup instead of tomato sauce. It worked great!
Laura, Wisconsin – June / 2012
I received a coupon in the mail and thought I would try your soups. They are really good. I tried the Creamy Cheddar Broccoli and the Chicken Noodle Knockout. My son was going backpacking in Colorado and I told him to take some of your soup with him. I am going to try some of the other flavors as well.
Leslie, Kansas – June / 2012
Your soup is quality soup. My granddaughter brought me your soup and told me to try something new. Keep making it and thank you. I tried the Chicken Noodle Knockout and I also have the Chili and Mama’s Minestrone to try.
Henrietta, Maryland – June / 2012
I tried the Chicken Enchilada soup from Walmart. It was really good. I added a can of diced tomatoes when I was done cooking it. We have eaten a lot of food in Mexico and your soup has a very authentic taste. Also, it’s great packaging you have!
Darcy, Missouri – June / 2012
I made the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup for the first time. I found it at Walmart. I added half a small cabbage that I partially precooked (I suppose I could have just cooked it right in with it). It was out of this world.
Charlotte, North Carolina – June / 2012
My family and I first tried the Chicken Enchilada Soup that was to die for!! I even posted on facebook to all my friends a picture of the package and demanded everyone try it. It was the easiest fasted meal that was not loaded with fat! I thought if that was that good, maybe we would try another type of soup.
I wanted to try other flavors, but was fearful they would not be as good. I’ve seen the broccoli and cheese soup kind and thought I would try it to use up some broccoli I had in the fridge. Oh, it was just as tasty.
We are 100% product faithful to Cugino’s brand. Thank you for providing a wonderful product my family and I can enjoy!
Melissa, Texas – May / 2012
Love your Mama’s Minestrone! I add 1lb. of browned, well crumbled bulk sausage; hot or regular, instead of hamburger; a 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes, a can of sliced black olives and a clove of chopped garlic- makes an Italian sausage soup with a wonderful flavor. You can also add corn kernels for a slightly different taste.
PJ, Texas – May / 2012
I always have made my own soup. I will never again after having your French Onion Soup. Yours was delicious! We also like your Chicken Enchilada, too. My brother loves your Chili Fixin’s and he has discovered your Potato soup, I can’t wait to try it.
Roberta, New Mexico – May / 2012
Just want to say I just love your Mamas Minestrone Soup. Used it today with browned STRAUS frozen VEAL meatballs and it was fantastic. How about coming up with a Zuppa Toscana package?
Dawn, Wisconsin – May / 2012
My family and I love your Broccoli Soup! It’s awesome and we’ve had events where we’ve served lots of it and our friends love it as well. We only see your soup products on the store shelves at Walmarts we purchase from, but now see you sell other products online. Your soups are great so I’ll definitely tell my family and friends about your online products as well!
Mary, Louisiana – May / 2012
I have a chef living with me and he has been a chef for 30 years. We really enjoyed your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup.
Anna, Tennessee – May / 2012
We bought 4 of your soups last month (we shop 1 month at a time). I have cooked 3 soups already and just wanted to let you know that we LOVE the soup. It is affordable and so delicious. I can take the soup all week for lunch and it taste amazing every day! So glad this is at Walmart. Yum!!!!! The cashier asked, “I have been selling these like crazy. Are they good?” We told her we have never tried them, but when we go shopping again I will tell the next cashier how wonderful your soups are. Thanks for a great, inexpensive and easy to prepare soup
Ashley, Arkansas – April / 2012
The Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup is even better then a restaurant. I bought it at Walmart and made it for my family, they went crazy over it. It has the perfect flavor and is easy to make. Please keep making it!
Donna, Florida – April / 2012
The Chicken Enchilada is the best soup I have ever had. I found it at Walmart and have been back since to get more and they were all out. I realized other people in my town must have discovered it as well. I was talking to a stranger in the aisle and telling her she has to try this soup when they get more in.
Katie, Colorado – April / 2012
My daughter bought me Chicken Noodle Knockout Soup at Kroger’s. I added one and a half pounds of BBQ chicken to it and talk about good! Thank you for the soup mix. Keep up the good work.
Richard, Washington – April / 2012
I just have to email you… I am a sucker for crazy packaging and you guys really got me. I bought 2 of your soup mixes when I was in the USA last week; I made the chicken enchilada one last night to see if I liked it. WOW! So off to “Great USA” again today to buy some more and a couple others. I am going to spread the word of your product, and I see you make more than soup too! Awesome product and my hat is off to your cartoonist! Makes me giggle each time I look at the packaging! From a very Happy Customer!
Kerry, Canada – April / 2012
The Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup is the best ever. I really like it. I bought the Potato Soup for a friend and haven’t heard back from him yet, but I really like the French Onion Soup.
Donna, Ohio – April / 2012
Your Creamy broccoli soup is delicious.
Look forward to buying more of your products.
Gloria, Illinois – April / 2012
Your soups are so good. They are “Mother-in-Law Good”.
Valane, California – April / 2012
We really like the French Onion Soup. I bought it at Menards. I am a nurse and work full time, its fast and it’s wonderful. I love it and my husband loves it too. You guys do good work.
Cameron, Michigan – April / 2012
We love your Chili Fixin’s Mix. My husband likes to make Chili. This is the 5th time we have bought it. We got it from Le Gourmet Chef.
Jamie, New York – April / 2012
I have to tell you-that the onion soup mix is great. I took it to a special soup luncheon today for seniors and they all raved about it. Thank you for having it.
Jane, Colorado – April / 2012
Three weeks ago I walked into a Bed Bath & Beyond. I purchased your Chicken Enchilada Soup and loved it. I went back the next day and bought six more including a Perfect Potato and a Creamy Cheddar Broccoli. Please don’t stop sending it to Bed Bath & Beyond. I find something I like and then it seems to get discontinued.
Loretta, Texas – March / 2012
You have the best French Onion Soup I’ve ever had. We love it. We have a Bed & Breakfast and we serve it to all our friends.
Dave, Iowa – March / 2012
OMG! Just got done trying the French Onion Soup – Have had the Chicken Enchilada & Chicken Noodle – LOVE Them All! Everything about your product is wonderful – even the packaging is bright, colorful and fun to read – Thanks so much! You guys rock!
Ralph, Florida – March / 2012
Hello, I just want to say that I love your products very much!! I would rate them over 100+!! Great job guys!!
Andy, Illinois – March / 2012
I had your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup it was very very good. I think my Walmart just started carrying it a few months ago. I choose your soup because of better carbohydrate and sugar intake. My husband is a diabetic. The soup was wonderful. Then we tried your Creamy Cheddar Broccoli soup and it was very good as well.
Rosland, Arizona – March / 2012
I commend you on your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup. I have served it and everyone loves it. I have looked and looked for a good French Onion Soup. I found this at Walmart and love it. I will try the Creamy Cheddar Broccoli Soup next and I hope it is every bit as good.
Jackie, Ohio – March / 2012
We had your Chicken Noodle Knock-Out and the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soups. I don’t know how you do it. We saw them at Bed Bath & Beyond. It’s so easy to make and the taste is so important and you’ve got it just right. We are telling everyone we know and I just wanted you to know your soup is popular here.
Bridget, Missouri – February / 2012
I found your soups at a Menard’s store, of all places (bathtubs, particle board, floor tiling and soup?) I bought a few packages on a whim, took them home, doctored them up as suggested, and we *love* them! I make “Hardware Soup” (and that *is* what we call it…) a couple nights a week. It’s even better the second day (when there’s any left!) I never had much reason to go to Menards before, but now it’s not the light bulbs and plungers that draw me there–it’s your wonderful soups! And I’ve shared my secret with all my friends and family. Sincerely, Pamela
Pamela, Michigan – February / 2012
The Baked Burgundy French Onion is fantastic. I found it at the Jewel. I am telling all my friends about it. I am going to try the Chicken Noodle Knockout next.
Irene, Illinois – February / 2012
I went to Walmart yesterday and was going to buy some soup. I saw your dry packet of Chicken Noodle Knock-Out and decided to try it. It was really good.
Angela, Georgia – February / 2012
We tried the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup and it was wonderful. I have been married for 38 years and have followed many recipes to make French Onion Soup. My husband said we should stop trying to make it. I bought 4 packs of this at Wal*Mart. I added 2 onions and cheese and croutons for us the first day. The next day I added veggies to the left-over. It was delicious. I had to call to say thank you!
Cindy, Pennsylvania – February / 2012
Your soup beats canned soup any day. I bought the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup at Wal*Mart and it is delicious. It is excellent. I am not calling for coupons but just to commend you.
Evelyn, Ohio – February / 2012
I purchased your Creamy Cheddar Broccoli Soup. It was very good. We like it and we enjoy buying it.
Cindy, Louisiana – February / 2012
We bought the Chicken Noodle Knockout at Walmart. I added chicken and my homemade dumpling and it was delicious.
California – February / 2012
I tried the Baked Burgundy French Onion soup and absolutely loved it. My husband really liked it too. We bought it at Walmart and the price is good.
Elaine, Arizona – February / 2012
I tried your Creamy Cheddar Broccoli Soup. It was absolutely wonderful. I have tried other brands and this has the best taste. I found it at Piggly Wiggly and they only have 3 or 4 other varieties.
Dawn, Alabama – January / 2012
I was at Big Lots and saw your soup I thought I would try it. We used to get a soup starter that we really liked but then they went out of business. We have tried another kind but did not really care for it. I saw yours and thought you don’t know until you try it. I added onions, carrots, celery and some leftover chicken we had. We really liked it. I have posted it on my Facebook and added your link to it as well.
Evelyn, Florida – January / 2012
OMG!! We got your “Mama’s Minestrone!” soup mix and fixed it for supper tonight and we love it. I did not ever hear of your soup mix until I was just looking for something different. So glad I did. We really do like it and I will tell all the ladies at work about this soup. Now I will try the other things you have out. Thank you for an EASY Supper.
Sherry, Louisiana – January / 2012
WOW!!!! I RARELY ever buy a product like yours but I saw it in a display at my local Acme Supermarket. I was tired, didn’t feel like cooking much and wanted something easy so I gave the chili a try. OH. MY. WORD! It was simply amazing. Even my son, who NEVER compliments a meal, mentioned that it was good! I just came back from buying another chili mix and also the Chicken Enchilada mix. Can’t wait to have more chili and I’m looking forward to trying the other as well. I HOPE and PRAY that more of your products make it to my store! Especially the garlic spread and some of the creamy soups! Thank you so much for this delicious item!!!!!

I had your Chicken Noodle Soup and it was really good. I got it at Bed Bath & Beyond. I am going to have another bowl before I go out hunting. I also got the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup but I have not tried it yet.
Dan, Illinois – January / 2012
The Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup is absolutely fantastic. We are getting ready for my mom’s 90th birthday and running around getting things ready. The soup was so quick and easy to make and it’s very good.
Charlotte, Texas – January / 2012
I really enjoy your soups. I made the Chicken Noodle Knockout and added celery, onion and green beans. I put it in the crock pot for 1 hour and it was really good.
Paula, California – January / 2012
I love Cugino’s Soup!! I found it at Woodman’s . Wow!! It’s amazing soup. I particularly like that they are not too salty. I’m glad I found your website. My daughters are wondering where they can get some. Schnook’s is great for the Bloomington girl. How about St. Louis Park, MN girl? I look forward to trying your other products!!
Terry, Illinois – January / 2012
I bought packages of soup from Bed Bath and Beyond at xmas… love, love, love them… But cannot find them again, not even on your sight! Chicken noodle soup and Chicken Enchilada (mild) soup mix! Where can I get more? I sold sooo many of these packages (told my friends and family). I love you and this is by far one of my favorites. I also have the French Onion Soup Mix although I have not tried it yet. But I am sure it will be delish also… HELP

I am in charge of making food for my church. I made the Chicken Noodle Knockout and it was absolutely delicious my friends and neighbors really liked it.
Mary Louis, Virginia – January / 2012
I just wanted to tell you that I LOVE your soups! I made the Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup tonight and my husband loved it and thought I was a great cook! I have tried 4 of your soups that I buy at Walmart. Thank you!
Jeanne, Arizona – January / 2012
I bought your soup at Walmart and I am calling because I read that you would like any recipes that we may have. I have your Chicken Enchilada Soup and instead of adding the can of chicken or plain chicken I get the Chi Chi’s Mexican Style Sauce with Seasoned Chicken (18 oz. package) and add it. It’s good!
Ann, Ohio – January / 2012
I tried your Chili Fixin’s it’s so good that I hope Walmart keeps handling it. It’s the best I have ever eaten. I hope you keep it up.

Santino Sengson was awarded “Most Brilliant Idea of the Year” from Cugino’s for suggesting that everyone in the world should eat Cugino’s Mandarin Teriyaki & Greek marinated chicken wings for the Super Bowl

I had your Mama’s Minestrone- it’s so good it is amazing. I stirred in extra things of my own and have ideas for next time. I will be a customer as long as it is on the shelf. Thank you for a great product.
Teresa, Arkansas – December / 2011
To whom it may concern: I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for making a great product. I just moved to the area and the stress of unpacking a home and getting meals prepared has been something else. I recently purchased the chicken soup for a family meal and a quick dinner. I should have purchased another soup flavor, because the kids loved it. I have two boys ages 12 and 7. The youngest is ADHD and has autism and very picky and when he asked for seconds I knew I had scored. Thank you again for making something so delicious!
Melissa, Virginia – December / 2011
We had your Creamy Cheddar Broccoli. We bought it at Bed Bath & Beyond. This is the best soup we ever had. We used to eat other brands but yours by far surpasses those. It was absolutely delicious!
Kathy, Illinois – December / 2011
I have never called a company before. I have had your Baked Burgundy French Onion and the Mama’s Minestrone soups. They are such high quality.
Irene, Florida – December / 2011
Everyone wants to know how I make the Chicken Enchilada Soup and where I got it. I have made it for company twice already and everyone loves it. I bought it at Menards. It’s not too spicy it’s perfect. I am making it now and saw your number on the packing and had to call.
Teresa – December / 2011
I love your Chili. I bought it at Bed Bath & Beyond. I bought 12 in one trip. I went back with a friend and bought more. I wish my Walmart would carry your Chili. Everyone would love, I have told everyone about it.
Anne, Michigan – December / 2011
I have never called a company before; however, we tried your Creamy Cheddar Broccoli Soup. My husband doesn’t ever like soup and he absolutely loved it. I really appreciate you guys and love your soup. I just bought an arm load.
Ray, CO – December / 2011
We tried your Chicken Enchilada Soup. It was ridiculously delicious and fantastic. I have not had that good of soup in a long time. Keep making it!
Mike and Debbie – December / 2011
I made your Creamy Cheddar Broccoli Soup and it is very good. I will tell everyone about this soup. I wish I knew about this when I had my catering business. It’s so easy to make.
Ronald, IL – December / 2011
Your Chicken Enchilada Soup is excellent. I have a degree in Culinary Arts. You should market this Chicken Enchilada soup as Vegetarian. I added 24 oz. stewed tomatoes and small cream corn and did not add the Chicken. It was excellent.
Jane, GA – December / 2011
I made your Baked Burgundy French Onion soup tonight for my family and it was AMAZING!!!! I have never had French onion soup so good before, even better than a restaurant!
Kim, Wisconsin – December / 2011
I purchased your Mama’s Minestrone at Walmart. It was the best minestrone I have ever had. Once in a while you get something special. I used sausage and it was delicious. Also, I love the little guy on the front- eat chicken.
Elizabeth, Wisconsin – December / 2011
I am a Diabetic and I purchased your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup at Walmart. The flavor was great and it’s low calorie too.
Pete, Pennsylvania – December / 2011
Needing a quick chicken noodle soup for an ailing husband, I grabbed a packet of yours from the Walmart shelf! 30 minutes later it was done and ready to serve the poor ailing fellow…. *rolling my eyes* …..*smirk*…..
Anyways it was a quick little blessing in my busy schedule. I added some carrots, onion and celery. Pretty good for a 30 minute meal! Thanks for the great little quick fix (he was 100% better after I propped him up, fluffed his pillow and fed him some good soup!) Ta-da!
Kim, Iowa – December / 2011
I tried your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup. It is restaurant quality. This is soup that we would serve to our company. I bought it at Walmart and I am going to get more. This is going to be a staple at our house.
Mark, Ohio – December / 2011
Buy your soups and chili mix at Walmart. I am from South Louisiana and I know what good tastes like and you have found the secret!!! Sure you are not from LA???
Love your products!
Have been telling everyone about your soups, etc.
P.S. Just added you to my Pinterest and Facebook!!!
Cathy, Louisiana – December / 2011
Yesterday I tried your Chili mix with Morning Star veggie burger crumbles. It was spot on!!
I made it exactly as per your directions and it was FABULOUS! I got it at Walmart. Thanks for a wonderful product.
HC, Maryland – November / 2011
I just bought your “Mama’s Minestrone” at Walmart and fixed it for dinner last night. I was amazed at how good this soup was!! I have been bragging on it all day at work. Can’t wait to try the others now!!
Susan, South Carolina – November/ 2011
Thank you for such a quality product. My family has been eating Cugino’s variety of soups for a few years now. I am surprised every time we have a different soup, and I am so used to finding bad products in a good line. You have none! The soups are all great!
Thank you, and please keep up the good work.
Here’s praying Walmart doesn’t stop selling it!
Eric and Family, Colorado – November / 2011
WOW!! That is all I have to say. I was at Walmart and saw your bagged soup and thought I would give it a try, I bought all the flavors and just finished making the Chicken Noodle Soup, it is soooo good and is so close to being homemade. I am so glad I found your product and can’t wait to try all the others. You have saved me tons of money from eating in the cafe at work LOL I’m glad I found a new friend in Cugino’s
Conrad, Florida – November / 2011
I first got your product at Target. Now I get them at Walmart. They are awesome .I have had your Mama’s Minestrone, Baked Burgundy French Onion and your Perfect Potato Soup.
Patricia, Oklahoma – November / 2011
Your Chili is really really good. It is an excellent product I got it at Walmart. A lot of the Chili packets have a lot to be desired, however, yours is really really good.
Colleen, South Carolina – November/ 2011
We purchase your Chicken Noodle Knockout Soup and we really like it. We buy it at Menards and have for a couple years. You changed the noodles to bigger ones. I liked the smaller ones it reminded me of the soup I had when I was a kid, but we still really like your soup. I add chicken from the deli. I buy the whole chicken and add pieces and sometimes add Swanson’s Chicken Broth. Keep up the good work.
Mark from the Dakotas – November / 2011
I am an unpaid agent for you- I have talked about your product at Weight Watchers. I am such a fan of yours. My friend is a foodie and my other friend is a gourmet cook and I told them about you. I was shocked to find out you were in Crystal Lake until I was in Bed Bath & Beyond. Your products are excellent.
Bonnie, Illinois – November/ 2011
I just recently bought a few of your dry soup mixes and they are the best I have ever had!! My family has raved about your French Onion and just recently your Cheddar Broccoli. Thank you for such a quality product and the best soup mix I ever bought!
Heather – November / 2011
Just wanted to tell you how much I love your chili! In fact it is soooo good I recently entered it in our companies’ chili cook-off! Everyone wanted my secret recipe! So thank you and I am going to try the garlic spread and Rubz next!
Joanne, California – November / 2011
I just bought 1 jar of your Garlic Spread from the Nutcracker Market here in Houston. I just tried it for the first time and it is amazing!!! Best ever!
Can I order more through your website? Or is ordering only for retail customers?
Elizabeth, Texas – November / 2011
Just wanted to say we tried your chicken enchilada soup mix today for the first time. Excellent! I am on my way to the store to buy more. Not only is it simple but OMG it is great tasting food!
Michelle, Utah – November / 2011
I love your dried soup products! This past Sunday I made the Chicken Rice soup, tonight (Wed. 11/23/11) I made the Chicken Enchilada soup and me and my friends loved them both! GOOD STUFF!!!
Mark, Illinois – November / 2011
I purchase the Chili Fixin’s at Caputo’s on Lake Street in Bloomingdale, IL. I had another brand in my cart and then I saw a store worker setting up a display of your Chili. Having used your products before, I quickly picked it up and put the other brand back. This was the first time I used this product and it was the first time I had seen this product. The fact that it was in a cardboard floor display makes me think that Caputo’s purchased it as promotion and will not be carrying it on a regular basis, which I hope is not the case as I’ve been reformed!!!!
You have a great day too and thanks again for making such a great product!
Pat, Illinois – November / 2011
Just a quick note I recently bought your chicken enchilada soup mix for one of those quick and easy nights. Well my family absolutely loved it. Thank you for the wonderful product and affordable product from such an amazing company.
Tara, Mississippi – November / 2011
I really had my doubts about trying your Mama’s Minestrone, I am Italian, I have to tell you it was really, really good. I purchased it at Bed Bath & Beyond.
Loretta, Nebraska – November / 2011
I am very, very pleased. It’s been a long time since I have been this pleased with an item. I saw the cool packaging- I love the little guy! Then I tried the soup and this is good for you soup. My husband doesn’t like anything. He ate two bowls and loved it. It was so wonderful and I already told two people right away yesterday, one in Michigan and one in Indiana.
Barb, Pennsylvania – November / 2011
Just wanted to let you know that your soup “Creamy Cheddar Broccoli” is fantastic, I made it with fresh cauliflower and loved it.
Thank you for such a great product.
Jeanne Ann, New York – November /2011
I just have to say, I’m lovin your stuff!!! And I have a request. Actually, two requests…. 1. Get more of your product on the shelves! Found you at Walmart for the soups, but nothing else.
2. New England Clam Chowder????? One of my all time favorite soups and I’ve not been able to quite master it myself. And if you need a Guinea pig, I’m your pig!!! I LOVE soups as you can probably see from all my reviews. So far I’ve cooked your soups several times, and I’m a single woman living alone… I do believe that on tonight’s menu is the Broccoli/Cheese soup.
Keep them coming. (Competitor) ain’t got nothin’ on you. (Theirs taste too chemical or something)
And did you quit making the dressing I read about? ok, that’s 3 questions…. sorry!
Dinah, Tennessee – October / 2011
You are a lifesaver. I have Acute Bronchitis and have been in bed. I just had your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup and it’s the best soup I have ever had in my life. I was wondering if you had any coupons for me to pass out to my friends. This soup is the bomb! What else do you make?
Lisa, Georgia – October / 2011
We love your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup. I have gone to two different Walmarts and they are always out. I have told all my friends and family about your soups. Finally, I went back again and they had only 4 left on the shelf. I bought ALL of them. I am calling you so that you can make sure you send more to Walmart so that there is enough for everyone.
Pamela, Massachusetts – October / 2011
I purchased Cugino’s Chicken Enchilada Soup Mix at our local Walmart last week and prepared per package instructions last weekend. It was SOOOO GOOD. I returned this week to the same store and bought Mama’s Minestrone and the Onion Soup Mix. We ate the Minestrone last night. I only had 8oz ground meat so I added a link of Italian sausage and 6oz of beef Chile sauce from the weekend and also 2 fistfuls of Stelline pasta and an extra cup of water. My wife and I ate it in extra large soup cups garnished with freshly grated Romano cheese. It was very good but next time I will add an 8oz can of diced tomatoes. I look forward to trying your other products.
Walter, New Orleans – October / 2011
My family is crazy about your soups. First I purchased the Chicken Noodle Knockout at Walmart and then I bought the Chicken Enchilada, Cheddar Broccoli and Mama’s Minestrone. The Chicken Noodle Knockout is the favorite of the ladies in our family and the men like the Cheddar Broccoli the best. I am thankful you make such a quality product. I used to spend hours in the kitchen making my own homemade chicken noodle soup. Yours is even better.
Mrs. Banks, Texas – October / 2011
I had to write and tell you how much I enjoyed your Chili Fixin’s, Mix, OMG it was GOOD, I love it, and I will make it again. I’m glad my regular brand was sold out, or I would never had tried yours. Trust me I will never go back to the other one.
Thank you for making a great product. I bought my Chili Mix at Walmart, (In the south county area) and they also had several of the soup mix, I can’t wait to try one of them.
June, Missouri – October / 2011
Hello, just have to say. I was raised in Crystal Lake Illinois. I now live in Arizona. I bought your soup simply because it had come from Crystal Lake. But I must say it’s great. Want to try many more of your products. Especially your garlic spread. Besides it’s from my home town. Thanks for making a great product!
Sue, Arizona – October / 2011
Just a quick note to say — I like your product. My wife and I purchased a couple of your Soup Mix products at Menards this weekend. We tried the Chicken Noodle and it was really very, very good. Also, I want to let you know that I especially enjoy your packaging. It’s bright, great art layout, funny and fantastically printed. Very, very attractive. I also like the way you coordinated your entire packaging line as I viewed it all on your website. Thank you.
Cliff, Illinois – October / 2011
I just tried the Chicken Enchilada Soup mix, and had to tell you how much my family loved it! We can’t wait to try the other flavors!
Lori, Louisiana – October / 2011
I do not usually contact companies; however, I HAD to send you a note to let you know how much my family and I LOVE your soups! Of course our favorite is the Chicken Enchilada, but we also love your Chicken Noodle and French Onion. Not only are they delicious, they are quick, easy and economical!! I have bragged about your soups to everyone I know. Thank you for making such a great product that makes my life a lot easier.
Amanda, Virginia – October / 2011
My grocery store just started selling your packaged soups. So far I tried the Chicken Enchilada & Mama’s Minestrone and this morning Creamy Cheddar Broccoli. I am so impressed with the taste and how easy it is, I will no longer believe I can ‘only’ make my own soup. Next I will try the Chili. Thank you for a great product.
Betty, Washington – October / 2011
Recently purchased the creamy cheddar broccoli soup, my family loves it, you have a new customer. Thank you!
Sue, Ohio – October / 2011
Just wanted you to know that I dine in some of Palm Springs finest high end restaurants and believe it or not….your Baked Burgundy French Onion Soup Mix is far better than any of the restaurants….REALLY
WHO KNEW DRIED SOUPS COULD TASTE SO GOOD.
I usually do not buy packaged mix products…but so glad I did.
Barbara, California – October / 2011
I just discovered your Chicken Noodle Knockout soup today (I REFUSE to buy any of the major soup brands because they add MSG and I’m deathly allergic to that crap!). OMG!! This is THE BEST soup I have EVER had!!! Keep this up and you’ve got a customer for life!!!
P.S. Love the packaging too….Eat Beef. lol
Cheryl, IL – October / 2011
I’m typically NOT a fan of soups from a pouch (although, they’re rarely as bad as canned soups *shivers*)…, that is until I tried your dried soup mixes – YUM! I took a chance and bought a bag of chicken noodle a couple weeks ago and loved it. I made a special trip to buy more today, but Walmart was sold out (the nerve), so I bought Minestrone and French Onion instead. I have NEVER tried a bagged or canned French Onion soup that I like, ever – but since the chicken noodle was so good, I figured “what the heck!” I’m SO glad I did – it’s delicious! I can’t wait to try the other ones.
Thank you for making such a GREAT product for us to enjoy! However, you really should make more, since my store ran out! haha!
I plan to tell all my Facebook friends…, right AFTER I stock up!
Mikki, Minnesota – September / 2011
I purchased your Creamy Cheddar Broccoli Soup. It was amazing, so very good. The price is very reasonable and it is very, very good soup.
