I thought the _Cream of Broccoliﾔ soup was very tasty. It has a nice creamy chicken broth base with tiny bits of broccoli (wish it had more). Measuring and cooking recommendations: The package suggests 6 to 8 ounces of water. I recommend 8 ounces. I also recommend boiling the water, adding to the mix, and stirring for a minute or so to get as many of the lumps out (push down with a spoon). Microwave for 30 seconds, remove, and stir again. Microwave for 20 to 30 more seconds, stir, and eat. Yum!

I drink 3-4 soups a day to increase my protein intake and I believe the beef is the best. I often add some mushroom bouillon and cheese for a treat and added protein.
by Patt on 5/6/2011
I would definitely recommend the soups to anyone. I've tried the Chicken w/Pasta, Chicken Bouillon, Tomato and Cream of Asparagus so far. I have not been disappointed. They are a wonderful addition to my diet needs. I will continue ordering them. In fact, I have another order in to try some other flavors. Try them, and you'll not only LOVE them but also be very glad you did!
REALLY GREAT SOUPS!
by on 6/29/2011
I buy the chicken pasta, chicken boullion, and tomato soups all the time, they are the lowest in sodium and really are delicious! I found that they mix well if you heat them up for 90 seconds.
Convenient, satisfying and tasty!
by SKindel on 7/8/2011
The tomato soup is verrrry satisfying and love the basil flavor as well. When I go to lunch with friends I just order a bowl or cup of hot water and add the tomato bouillon. Sometimes at home I add tofu.
BariWise Chicken Soup
by BariBariHappy on 9/5/2011
Just had WLS and this product is great. Easy to get down. Plus I'm getting my protein in. Diet Direct ROCKS!
Great Protein Soup - Highly Recommend
by LauraB on 10/21/2011
Just had WLS and need to be on liquid diet pre and post surgery for 2 weeks. This is a great low-sodium bullion. Boil your water and really stir to get mix to break down. This is a quality product with very good taste. Tried with microwave and didn't mix as well. Best to have super hot water and continue to stir for about 1 minute. Enjoy!
by Lindsay J on 4/2/2012
Chicken with pasta. Pretty good, not too salty, but just the right amount of salt. I mix with 4 oz of water instead of the reccomended 8, since I am a bariatric patient. I also like the fact that the portable packages dont say diet, or bariatric, etc.. Easy, I just use the hot water dipenser on the coffee machine and it mixes easily, no clumps, smells, or weird tastes. I ordered one box and used it up within one week, so I ordered 3 more boxes and Im not even remotely tired of it.
I like it!
by SweetSue on 4/29/2012
I tried the cream of mushroom and liked it very much. I'm glad I didn't take the advice of the low ratings. It's nice to be able to have a variety of items and not stuck with the same thing over and over again. I made sure the water was hot enough and had no problems with gritty taste. I will try the other flavors. Great soup for a rainy day.
by Babs on 5/28/2012
I tried the cream of mushroom and it was very good!! I like the flavor and it was a very nice change from just having shakes for all my meals. I will definitely buy again and will try other flavors and products as well.
Chicken & Pasta Soup
by Harriet on 8/8/2012
Who doesn't like fried chicken and you thought you couldn't have it and diet too! Well think again...I take chicken breast tenders and roll them in the chicken & pasta soup and fry in a "little" canola oil - the chicken is moist, crunchy and delicious! I have this at least three times a week. :~)
by kwladywolf on 5/20/2009
It is really good. I like adding about oz of cheese and it makes it pretty good. Better than buying Healthy Choice meals that cost more. I recommend to use a big bowl. The water tends to boil over.
by omcv04 on 8/10/2009
I love the tomato soup! Just the right amount of spices!
by NeeNee on 5/22/2011
I received my free sample packets in the US Mail today. I opened my chicken bouillon and ate for dinner. Delicious and not loaded with sodium! I was also sent the following packets: hot chocolate, nutritional supplement in chocolate, caramel pudding, and chocolate cream pudding & shake. So far, so good!!! Will send another comment once I open and taste the others. Yummy!!!!!!
Beef n Pasta GREAT
by Sunshine on 10/20/2012
I love this soup. Very tasty and enjoyable! If you need more fillers I add spaghetti squash 1/4 c and few peas. Love it!!
by Beverly on 11/2/2012
This is so delicious! This has become my favorite choice for a cold weather evening drink. Ordering my 7th box today. I really have to struggle once cold weather gets here to control my nightime snacking and this is a welcome solution!!! This plus my cappuccino will be so helpful.
by Terri on 10/27/2013
This tomato soup saved me from starvation two weeks after gastric bypass. I was sick of protein shakes and scrambled eggs. I have a mug of this soup every afternoon for my mid day snack. Thank you BariWise!
Use it like Pasta Sauce!
by Lisa on 2/8/2018
I'm not a huge fan of eating this just as soup with nothing in it, but with a bit of extras it's pretty awesome.
I see there are some negative reviews, and I would suggest if you don't like it, try these ideas:
1) Put it dry on shirataki noodles then add just a tiny bit of water. Add some red pepper flakes, garlic and basil and parmesan cheese if your diet allows it. Low carb and portion controlled pasta with sauce!
2) cook with it! I like to cook ground beef and cabbage together and use this as the seasoning.
So happy to have a these as soup bases for other preparations!!
by Jash on 3/13/2010
I purchased the Chicken and Beef Broths.
I must say they are quiet tasty alone. Not too salty or bland. The whey protein isolate did settle out of the hot broth to the bottom of my glass mug BUT a quick swirl before my next sip nicely fixed that little deviation!
The true beauty of this product is it's use as a base for other soups and chowders.
I made Italian minestrone, french onion, chicken vegetable and so many other hi pro, low fat and carb homemade soups that I've got a little recipe file going.
Yep! I'm a happy diet camper this winter!
Chicken with Pasta
by JBreaux on 10/10/2010
The Chicken with Pasta soup is great. If you feel it's a little salty, just add an oz more of water.
Okay, but Tomato is best
by TrixieinDixie on 12/4/2010
I have tried the chicken and beef bouillons and the tomato, which is actually a bouillon as well. The chicken and beef are odd - the flavor isn't bad, but the texture is oddly gritty and never quite mixed for me. The tomato is my favorite and I have reordered it. It's very much a bouillon, and the flavor is a strong tomato without any weird protein taste.
Beef (Bad) | Chicken (Good)
by Tricia on 8/30/2012
I love the chicken bouillon however. It is fantastic on a cold day - I just drink it out of a mug!
I didn't care for the BEEF bouillon flavor - it was extremely salty.
Beef Boullion is great!
by Frank on 2/28/2008
The Beef Boullion is great! Very good taste and easy to make I add a few frozen vegetables to the cup such as spinach or brussels sprouts, sometimes fresh vegetables as well. The Chicken I find has a grainy texture from the soy, while okay for taste, visually a bit distracting.
great mushroom soup
by Renee on 12/28/2009
I have tried the chicken with pasta, beef with pasta and cream of mushroom. I did not care for the chicken or beef, but the cream of mushroom was excellent! Sometimes I add extra mushrooms (canned or fresh that have been cooked) or even a few frozen peas! I always add black pepper too. I prefer Bariwise mushroom to Protidiet's mushroom because it is not as thick and gooey and has the same amount of protein but fewer calories and the overall taste is much better!
by David on 6/19/2011
I love this stuff. I like the chicken noodle, Tomato..and I hope to try more. Truly filling cup of soup. Only takes 90 seconds in the microwave. I just put it in a cut and drink it from the cup. Easy...fast. Love it.
by CCod4600 on 9/27/2011
This soup is pretty good, a little artificial tasting, but not bad. It is not as filling as I would have liked, but still good.
by William on 1/27/2012
I enjoy the chicken with noodles and the bouillon. I did not enjoy the 'cream of' soups. They were not as tasty or satisfying. The BariWise soups are perfect for a quick lunch or dinner and are filling and satisfying. I have recommended these soups to friends.
Hot soup was very filling
by glo on 9/13/2012
I enjoyed the chicken with pasta, beef with pasta and the cream of chicken. I will definitely order all of them again and again!
Tomato Soup Review
by Rita on 2/16/2019
This soup and the chicken flavor are my favorites. The tomato has a nice flavor and has the texture more like broth but with enough protein to make a meal.
by Sandee on 4/4/2019
I love this soup. So easy to prepare I use different broths or broth and water 1:1
Not too bad
by NancyAnne on 6/19/2008
The tomato soup could be worse. It tastes a bit burnt, but is edible and good for a change from the shakes.
BariWise Tomato Soup
by Evelyn on 2/23/2008
The BariWise Tomato Soup was actually very easy to get down. A decent flavour. I ordered more so enough said.
by sduncan on 6/10/2011
It's ok but nothing to write home about. It tastes like any other chicken soup, just with a bit of the protein aftertaste. Not bad, but not great either. Doable.
Pretty good mushroom soup!
by Trishie on 10/16/2012
I bought the Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Chicken, and Cream of Broccoli.
The Cream of Broccoli I could not get through. The more water I added, the more it soaked it up. It was slimy and tasteless and as other people have pointed out, grainy.
The Cream of Chicken is better but needs a little bouillon to boost the flavor.
Out of the three, the Cream of Mushroom is the best tasting for a diet soup. Cream of Mushroom is my favorite soup and I am very picky about it so that is saying something. Very satisfying, although I would make it a little creamier by adding a touch more cream (if that is allowed on your diet) and a little more seasoning.
Cream of Broccoli
by rmock on 1/3/2010
The cream of Broccolli Soup would be good but getting all of it to mix up is a challenge ate what I could just did not mix well.
by MPO on 3/22/2012
BARIWISE Broccoli soup is very gritty - broccoli specs that is in the soup are fine - but why is the soup so gritty? Like sand.
Filling but unappealing
by VT on 5/26/2012
I really should have read the reviews for the cream of broccoli because they were right! Its very gritty no matter if you mix before or after. Its very filling but the look and texture needs revamping.
Not what I expected
by Krissy on 5/1/2012
These soups had me excited when I had first ordered them, but once I tried them, I was very disappointed. The broccoli cheese soup taste was very wrong, didnt even taste like broccoli. The chicken soup was okay, but no flavor. I wish they would have had more flavor.
by videohoppy on 4/27/2010
The protein doesn't mix & it has the consistency of powder floating in liquid. You cannot get it to dissolve. This is the first soup I really do not like. i will never order this brand again.
by Denise on 1/26/2011
I LOVE Diet Direct and all of their products, but was most disappointed in the Cream of Broccoli soup. It is more foamy than creamy and leaves an oil slick type sensation in your mouth. The actual flavor is very bland. BUT - if you are dying for some cream of broccoli, this would be a better choice over none. Just not my fave.
Cream of Broccolli Soup is Gross
by Pud on 2/1/2011
Unfortunately, I thought this soup would be like the Wonderslim brands of soup, but it wasn't. I gagged on this. Threw the two boxes of this that I bought in the trash. Gross.
by on 3/20/2011
Protein would not mix - very gritty. I'll never order this one again.
Cream of Broccoli
by Barry A. on 5/14/2011
Not my first choice and definitely not the best. The ingredients do not completely mix well. I even tried adding more water and that still did not do the trick. The taste is very bland but not unbearable. If your truly in the mood for a Cream of Broccoli soup this is an ok choice. I would go with another option if you have it on hand though.
by Aundrea on 4/9/2012
This is NOT soup! It was cornstarch with dehydrated broccoli leaves.
It was lumpy even when I whisked it. Made me sick. I HATE this stuff ! What a waste!
Broccoli is horrible
by inkdink on 8/14/2012
The broccoli soup always has hard pieces of broccoli. I tried hotter water in the soup ( I usually do 1 min 50 sec) and that was a real mistake. It was slime and I had to throw it out. The mushroom has an unpleasant taste. The cream of chicken is OK but not good. The taste is odd. The tomato is excellent. The chicken with pasta is good just make sure you let it steep for 5 minutes so the pasta softens if you are using hot water method. But back to the drawing board with the broccoli.
Cream of broccoli is nasty
by Tess on 2/19/2008
The cream of broccoli was truly nasty. It had a nasty gluelike consistency and barely a hint of broccoli flavor. Plus, if you put down your bowl for more than a minute, the soup 'sets up' like wallpaper paste!
Cream of Broccoli
by crickett on 1/14/2009
The cream of broccoli was horrible. I couldn't eat it. I do not recommend this flavor! It tasted like flour paste with green flakes!
by Marty on 1/15/2009
The Cream of Mushroom was not that good. I tried 2 packs & both of them came out REALLY lumpy & powdery. Alot of it would not desolve no matter how warm or hot the water was. I would not recommend this or order it again.
Wasted Money on Cream of Broccoli
by Yogisnort on 10/21/2009
Already disappointed with the Chicken Boullion, I braved the Cream of Broccoli anyway. It never fully dissolved even though I shook it as well as stirred it, and when I heated it in the microwave per directions, it got all foamy and was slimy on my tongue. Will not buy again or try other flavors either.
I did not like the Cream of Broccoli
by V. Cooke on 8/30/2012
This soup was nasty. It didn't taste at all like Cream of Broccoli soup.
Cream of tomato soup
by Traecy on 8/30/2012
The cream of tomato soup was very disappointing. It had a weird color and equally weird texture and taste. Very "grainy ". Not smooth at all. Im really glad I only bought one box.
Cream of Broccoli is poor in taste and texture
by Pamela on 11/6/2012
The Cream of Broccoli is hard to dissolve, leaving a grainy, slimy texture. Made it twice, thinking I didn't prepare it right the first time but it is just a poor quality soup.
First one I couldn't stomach.
by Moosh on 5/1/2014
Not sure why so many of you are mentioning other soups on the review tab of the tomato, but I didn't like this one at all. Not to be confused with the Cream of Tomato, which I liked very much. Opinions on these soups are so varied you are better off trying them for yourself. Buy the variety pack, which offers you a sample of most of them, and then when you know what you like, you can order a box of your favorites.
by Jennifer on 11/14/2015
Beware, there is Gelatin in this product so vegetarians DO NOT order!

As a Registered Dietitian with extensive experience in weight management as well as the author of several books including The Complete Idiot’s Guide To The Mediterranean Diet (Alpha, Dec. 2010) and The Everything Nutrition Book (Adams Media, 2003), I consider the WonderSlim® Diet Plan to be a useful tool in the fight against obesity.
The WonderSlim® Diet Plan incorporates pre-portioned, nutritionally designed WonderSlim diet products along with real foods to help create a program that is easy to follow, nutritionally balanced and highly effective for both men and women. The Program is specifically designed to keep a person eating higher protein foods, every 2 to 3 hours, which can aid in hunger and satiety issues. The WonderSlim® Diet Plan is designed to teach people how to maintain weight once they have reached their healthy weight loss goal. As with any weight management program, physical activity should be part of a healthier lifestyle. Always check with your physician before starting any weight loss and/or exercise program.
