Bite Battles: Cream-O-Potato Soup

Bite Battles: Cream-O-Potato Soup by Custom Taste

During chilly times such as these, who would not enjoy a warm bowl of soup while relaxing in their favourite chair. However most of us would not want to leave the warmth of our homes to go and get a can of soup from the store and then come home and make it. By the time it was ready we would not really be to keen on eating it now. Therefore, we came up with this Cream-O-Potato soup that can easily be made with ingredients that cane be fond in many homes so you will never have to leave the house! Not to mention no added sodium, fake foods and ingredients that we can't even begin to pronounce, so it is a great comfort food that will also be kind to your body.
