Update: We no longer carry Chalet Suzanne and they are closing Aug 4th, 2014
Canned soup: we’ve all had it by now. So why now with all the hubbub? Because there are other things out there. Looking through your cupboard and see the same flavors repeated indefinitely though your life – chicken, broth, veggies, chicken, broth, rice, repeat. It’s time to wake up and roll over those taste buds. With classic style and taste but a departure for the ordinary – Chalet Suzanne brings us their Romaine soup.
Sounds familiar, why do I know the name?
Chalet Suzanne has an infinitely rich history: 1931 the restaurant was established and has lasted through a fire, changing of generations, poor economies and strong ones. Nestled in the lake speckled lands of central Florida, the restaurant and country inn has been feasted at and stayed in by an innumerable amount of dignitaries, hollywood faces, and families. From the air strip to the ‘down-home’ feeling of the restaurant and kitchen, there is a sense of family. The open arms and feeling you get when at the Chalet Suzanne carries over to their soups.
Hows about the soup?
Well, as far as the Romaine, it’s a thick mix of mushroom and other goodies like garlic, salt, pepper. It’s so good, it’ll take you to the moon – which this soup already has done. Yes, thats right it was on Apollo 15 & 16. A soup so awesome that it was packaged up and sent into orbit – you’ll not want to miss this ‘out of this world’ soup. If you like chunkier soups – add mushrooms, onions and even sliced tomatoes to the soup to make it a thick delicious brew of chunky tastiness.
Where can I get it?
Right here on our shelves, we carry a couple other flavors of theirs like the mushroom and french onion – both just as great as the Moon Soup (the other name of the Romaine soup). We try and keep Chalet Suzanne soup in, but if you are looking for another flavor, we are low, or missing one, let us know and we can order some for you. Don’t miss this soup, it’ll make your taste buds blast off.
Looking for Vichysoise and Gazpacho Soup
Just a suggestion. A friend gave me a couple cases of the Clam Chowder. I cooked up a can using the directions. Two spoons was enough. 58% of daily recommended sodium! Then read the ingredients. Ugh! Monosodium Glutemate. If I had eaten the whole bowl, I’d be sick. One third the salt and without the MSG and it might be good. Sorry, not a fan of the clam chowder and had to pitch the remainder.
Thanks for the info Jim. We’ll keep an eye on that for any new orders.
How can I get this soup romaine?
We don’t carry Chalet Suzanne anymore, you’re best bet would be to reach out to them directly for info on distributors.
This is a question about your vichyssoise. I have had a can of vichyssoise in the refrigerator for at least a year maybe a little longer. There is no date on the can. Is it still good to eat? and where can I find it in Miami, Fl. thank you Marie
If the can isn’t open it should be just fine. Canned goods stay good for quite some time. We aren’t sure where you can get in Miami, sadly. We no longer carry Chalet Suzanne on our shelves. Best of luck and enjoy! Thanks for commenting.
Chalet Suzanne is closing effective August 4th so you would want to contact them asap!
Ah, that is too bad. We wish them well. We’ll update the post here – thanks Charlie.
