    I was really looking forward to trying this bisque. TJ employees raved about it. However, stay away, do not buy. It had a terrible plastic chemical smell when warming up on stove and the taste was even worse. It was within date so I know it hadn’t gone bad. But the smell and taste were so chemical that I think a recall is in order. Sorry TJs, but this is a big miss!

    Absolutely delicious! I look forward to this every year. The soup is creamy, and does not have any gluten or corn! A great fall soup, taste great if you add pumpkin seeds! This is way better than a the box soup!

    I would suggest to anyone who gets a really bad hit on a product, like the ‘chemical smell/taste’ above — take it back, say you’d like to trade for another, in case that one (or that batch?) may have been bad for some reason.

    My experience – tasted pretty good. No chemical smell/taste! But actually I used it to tone down the Thai -style carrot-sweet potato soup which was too spicy for me. Worked just right.

    I love TJs refrigerator soups. This was terrible. Worst I’ve ever had. Tempted to return it. That bad. Very bland, and a weird taste.

    I guess I should have realized when the first ingredient was water that this wasn’t going to be as “bisque” as I had hoped. Tried reducing it down on the stove top and that just intensified the sweetness which was already a bit too sweet. Tried adding butter to make it richer and that helped a little but what helped the most was adding bread to the bottom, drizzling balsamic on top, and some pepitas. Won’t be getting this again unless I want to drink something sweet.

    Don’t bother! I usually love the TJ’s soups and buy them frequently. This was a BIG disappointment! Not much flavor and what there was, wasn’t pleasant. It wasn’t sweet and it wasn’t savory. I really can’t tell you what it tasted like except to say, it was bad enough I dumped the whole container down the drain after a few bites. It wasn’t rancid, just a peculiar flavor. Next time I go there, I will tell them and I know they will replace with another soup. I do appreciate that about Trader Joe’s.

    I was surprised to see so many bad reviews – I really enjoy this soup. It’s yummy, it’s seasonal, and it’s very healthy. The whole container is only 200 calories! I think that “bisque” is certainly a misnomer – it isn’t creamy enough to merit that title, but that doesn’t mean it’s not good. I’ve also bought this item on multiple occasions and never had a problem with any mysterious smells or tastes, so don’t let that put you off. (Plus TJ’s employees are very obliging, so I’m sure if you encounter a bad batch you would be able to exchange it quite easily.)
