Hint of tomato

Went to the barbers at lunch and he told me that the soup IS NOT made from a packet, contrary to a work colleagues insurance that it is. This would explain the slight variations in taste and texture day to day. This new information makes me very happy, also, it's Friday tomorrow. :)
Today's soup is very nice, hint of tomato in there if I'm not mistaken, but that could be anything because i still have a cold and can taste strange things...

Dipping choice for today: Salt & Vinegar by Walkers (Grab bag, the classic original in my opinion, although they where better when they contained Disodium 5'-ribonucleotides as the Chilli Doritos still do)

Medicinal soup

adjective /məˈdisənl/ 
(of a substance or plant) Having healing properties
  • - medicinal herbs
  • - a large medicinal Scotch
  • -spolies chilli beef soup
Woke up this morning feelin properly in the grip of a full blown bout of the dreaded man flu, the prospect of a nice hot CB the only thing that's kept me interested enough to endure this morning. 2 sips in and I'm already starting to feel better, perhaps it's an association with soup and lunchtime? Or maybe the CB does actually contain some magical ingredient('s). The latter of these two makes me happier.

Dipping choice for today: Mexican Chilli by McCoys (also accompanied by a chilli tuna bap. So I'm having chilli soup, chilli crisps and a chilli bap, erm yeah, I need to read the rest of the menu).

It's soooo hot, Chilli soup was a bad choice.

Once in a while, I'm gonna end up giving the soup a bad review, today is one of those days...
It is a little bland, the consistency is not as good as normal and if i may go into more detail, the longevity of the taste is pretty poor, it normall stays around in your mouth for ages. I think todays soup was made in a rush... That said, the cup is now completely empty.

Dipping choice for today: Salt & Malt Vinigar, Crinkles by Walkers

Ahhhh monday

Perhaps because I've just scorched the back of my throat with soup, or that it's monday and my palett is not quite right after a weekend of madness, either way, I think that todays soup is bordering on the slightly bland side and I'm not sure how this happens, but there wasn't very much actual beef in it today.
Don't get me wrong though, it's still amazing!

Dipping choice for today: Mexican Chilli by McCoys (this is possible the best choice (so far) to have with the Chilli soup, the ridges also hold the liquid in place quite well.)

p.s. It can't be all that bad because now I've finished it, i really want another one... :)

Hungover Soup

Possibly the best time to enjoy the hot brown stuff. When my body is complaining to me about last nights efforts to make me forget my life, there is no better remedy than the soothing savoury satisfying soup sensation that is the CB. The taste today is very good, can't fault it, not that i would want to, it's tricky just trying to think of different things to write about something that rarely changes.

Dipping choice for today: Chilli Heatwave by Doritos (all the better for the inclusion of Disodium 5'-ribonucleotides, when you can't get hold of any MSG that is). However, these crisps I've found are too flavourful to go well with the beef, it's just too much, man.

Soup Relief

Having had a particularly stress-full morning for reasons I can't/won't go into on here, 11.45 couldn't come round fast enough. It would appear that the chilli beef soup also possesses some kind of medicinal elements too, as i am now experiencing a calming wave of tranquil satisfaction. Although the very slight taste of polystyrene is worrying my ever so slightly, maybe i should take my own cup there?

Dipping choice for today: Salt and malt vinigar crinkles, by Walkers. A wise choice.

Fresh Scoop

There are good and bad points to having the soup freshly scooped from the magik cauldron of joy. As 'pablo0151' commented on an earlier post, soup that's left to stand forms a skin (personally i hate the skin though) but soup thats fresh has bits of beef swimming around in the top third, which makes for a nice chewy first swig.
Todays soup, if i have any critisism at all, is ever-so slightly watery.

My dipping choice for today is Sea salt and Malt vinigar, Made by REAL.

Back on the Beef

Having strayed from my almost fanatical daily chilli beef consumption regime, normality is resumed today and I think absence makes the heart (or pallet) grow fonder. For today's soup is very good indeed, it almost tastes like gravy, well, the last bit of gray on your plate which is left over after a Sunday roast, you know, the really good bit.

p.s. Just got to the bottom and found some nice chunks (I use the word chunk is it's looses possible term) of beef and the bottom third didn't taste of Polystyrene, this time. :)

Spring Veg today

Had to make a difficult choice today as my normal sandwiches where replaced with homemade tuna pasta, which I did't think would have gone very well with Chilli Beef Soup. I wasn't that disapointed, the Spring veg soup has a slightly gloupy Chineesey soupy texture to it, and as usual, it's around 19 million degrees and maintains this temperature indefinately. It tastes nice but there is more spring than actual veg though. ;)

Too hot out side for Chilli Beef?

No chance, todays soup was good, not too peppery plenty of flavour. It had been standing for a short period of time so it wasn't insanely hot and had a nice conistency.
