Senate Bean Soup from Idahoan®

Rated as 4.65 out of 5 Stars
43

"Bean soup is on the menu in the Senate's restaurant every day. There are several stories about the origin of that mandate, but none has been corroborated. According to one story, the Senate's bean soup tradition began early in the 20th-century at the request of Senator Fred Dubois of Idaho. We like his version because it contains mashed potatoes, of course!"

After reading the reviews, I was suprised at how bad this soup actually was. The texture, thickness and especially the taste was terrible.
