I just bought the "no chicken" variety, I am going to try to make no chicken noodle souple for the first course for thanksgiving (I have to compete with Grandma's famous homemade real chicken noodle soup that she's been making for 50 years that everyone else in the family will be eating while hubby and I will be eating my version). I noticed when I got home that it has sugar and corn syrup in it. I recently just threw away an entire bottle of store-bought italian dressing (it was Wishbone I think) because it had sugar as like the 3rd ingredient and tasted way too sweet, it was just awful. Now I'm worried the same thing will happen and I'll be on the hunt again for a good broth for my soup. Is this stuff any good?

It's not bad, but if you want a good homemade noodle soup, you'd really do best making your own broth. It's not hard, and is totally worth it. Toss a couple of carrots, celery stalks, an onion, some garlic, a potato, a leek, a parsnip, some mushrooms, a few bay leaves, some peppercorns, some salt, and a handful of parsley in a large pot, cover in water and simmer for a few hours. It will taste infinitely better than reconstituted broth as soup base.

Thanks rabid_child, I think I'm doing to do that next time. I did a trial run of the soup this evening and it wasn't bad but could have been a lot better.

Nutritional yeast adds a chicken like flavor to soups, I find.
