The soup was amazing, however I can no longer purchase it at Target because it has become discontinued. Will your online store start carrying the soup mix? I’ve had it once and I’ve been on the hunt for it ever since!

I purchased the soup from Target as they were closing out all of the Beekman products and it is delicious. Where can I buy it in Maryland or can I buy it online. Thank you.

BTW: the chili starter in the jar was awesome too

This soup is so delicious!! We are on our third pot since the rollout at Target. Thanks for offering such quality products that help us in our busy lives! I have my cherry pie filling in hand and I’m going to prepare something to add to our Thanksgiving table. I also have puff pastry ready and want something other than a pie. If I invent something fabulous, I will share the recipe. Have a wonderful holiday!
