**The product featured was provided to me free of charge in order to give an honest review.  No other compensation was received.  My thoughts are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.**


 THE ART OF JAPANESE COOKING IN AN INSTANT. Eight generations after San-J’s founding fathers began making miso, instant Japanese soups are now available in America and are as easy as boiling water. San-J soups are packed full of flavor, all-natural, low in fat and calories and provide the perfect first course or a satisfying lunch-on-the-go.

GLUTEN-FREE INSTANT SOUPS Authentic, restaurant quality Japanese soup is available in single serving packets. These delicious instant soups are now certified gluten free and have an exciting new design with the GF logo prominently placed on the package. Quick and convenient, they fit easily in your briefcase, purse or backpack.

MISO SOUP CUPS San-J Miso Soups offer traditional quality with modern convenience. With authentic Japanes miso paste and vegetables, these soups have a creamy, robust flavor that is hard to beat. 


The soup mix featured above is the White Miso Soup with tofu & Scallions.

White Miso Soup- With over 1,000 years of tradition, miso has become a highly evolved Japanese staple, eaten with any meal throughout the day or evening.  San-J's all natural, gluten-free White Miso soup balances white and red miso with savory tofu and scallions.  Rich in tradition and taste, it's low in fat and calories.



Below is the Wakame Soup with Seaweed & Shiitake Mushrooms. 


Wakame Soup- Combining delicate tastes form thte sea and earth, our gluten-free and vegan wakame soup blends succulent ocean seaweed with savory shiitake mushrooms, sesame seeds, and black pepper.  In Japan, wakame is celebrated for its excellend nutritional value and healthy effects.


Each envelope contains everything you need to add to 8 oz. of boiling water.  Just stir well and enjoy refined, authentic taste worthy of the finest Japanese restaurant.  Both White Miso and Wakame soups are now made from new, reformulated recipes with no wheat content.  And now, both are certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization.

The Tradition Contines
In 1804, San Jirushi, the founding company of San-J international, was established as a Tamari soy sauce and miso company.  For more than 200 years, their brewing master has been passed down through the generations.  In 1987, the first Tamari brewery outside of Japan was built in Henrico, Virginia- and San-J International was born.  Today, San-J continues the tradition of quality with a variety of premium soy sauces, Asian cooking sauces, salad dressings, soups and rice crackers, available throughout the United States and Canada.

I recently had an opportunity to try these two great soup flavors from San-J.  San-J makes really great products.  I really loved how easy this soup was to prepare.  It only took me about 5 minutes to prepare this soup.  This soup would make a great lunch to take to work or almost anywhere.  It fits very easily into your purse or a lunch sack to take on the go.  My favorite of the two soups was definitely the White Miso soup.  Both of these soups have a very different flavor.  Depending on your taste buds, that would determine which of the soups you would like better yourself.  The flavor of the Miso soup was a little more subtle to me than that of the Wakame variety.  These soups also were packed with flavor.  I am a person that loves flavorful food!!  I don't really like my food to be bland.  These soups were nothing close to bland.  I highly recommend you try San-J's White Miso soup.


If you are looking for another Gluten-Free product to try I recommend you try San-J soups!  You can find them here.

Fresh Express Salads Review

*I received the product featured free of charge in order to give an honest review.  No other compensation was received.  My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.** 

 
 Have you heard of a newer brand of bagged salad called FRESH EXPRESS?? 

 The Fresh Express Story

A Glorious History of Freshness
The Fresh Express story begins way back in the Roaring Twenties. It was at that time that our founder, a California produce visionary named Bruce Church, returned to his Salinas, California roots and began working in the Salinas Valley produce industry. By the 1930s, he and three partners formed an ice company that supported a growing wave of packing and shipping fresh heads of lettuce across the country in ice-packed rail cars.
All the way to Maine, as the train pulled into each stop, folks would call out excitedly, "The icebergs are coming! The icebergs are coming!" The name would stick, as would America's blossoming love affair with fresh salads.
To meet this growing hunger for fresh, healthy salads, Fresh Express created the very first ready-to-eat packaged Garden Salad available in grocery stores nationwide in 1989. It was this same pioneering spirit and dedication to freshness that has "greened up" family menus with winning new combinations of fresh salads ever since. Today, Fresh Express is the market leader in delivering great-tasting, nutritious, fresh products to health-conscious people like you. 


I recently had the wonderful opportunity to taste Fresh Express salads with my mommy group.  I love salad so I think all of these were winners in my eyes. :)

We tried 3 different kinds of salads from Fresh Express:


50/50 Mix (above)


 Green & Crisp (above)


And the Caesar Kit (above)

The majority of the favorite was the Caesar Kit.  I especially liked the 50/50 myself because I love spinach.  All these salads by Fresh Express were delicious!!  Everyone in my group had the chance to try at least one or all three of the salads.  I am pretty sure most of us tried all 3 since this was a tasting.  Fresh Express salads bring healthier food into your home and are very easy to eat.   I really enjoy the size of leafs that these salads are cut into.  Some other bagged salad varieties have leafs that are cut much larger and are sometimes harder to get into your mouth especially if you are a small child.   These bagged salads were amazingly comparable in pricing.  They were not too different than other brands of the same size.  The only downfall to this product is that it is not sold in all stores.  Target does sell this salad and there is one near my home.  You can check online here to find other locations near your home that sell Fresh Express bagged salads.

Try Fresh Express Salads today with your family!!
