Why We Love It: I have to admit, I had a bit of a hard time getting myself to drink soup out of a bottle, even a cold soup like gazpacho. I almost wanted to pour this gazpacho out of its cute bottle into a bowl and sip it with a spoon, but I didn’t. And I got over it being in a bottle. This gazpacho turned out to be the perfect finisher to a light lunch (e.g. salad). It rounded it out and made me just full enough, with a really delicious flavor that I wasn’t expecting from such simple ingredients – it’s really just veggies, olive oil, white wine vinegar and salt. And it’s packed with veggies – one single-serving bottles contains 2 full servings of veggies (oh and they’re non-GMO). I tried all three flavors and loved the Original the best – the flavor of all the veggies blended together had a slight leaning towards the tomato but it wasn’t too strong of a tomato flavor. All the flavors balanced out to be a little bit salty, sweet and even had a bit of a subtle kick of spice at the end of each sip. I highly recommend this as a part of lunch for those who are on the go a lot and love soup but hate the mess of unreliable soup containers. It’s also great for those wanting to give their digestive systems a break with a tasty soup cleanse!
If you’re not familiar with gazpacho, it has a long history in Spain and is consumed both as a soup and a beverage there. Gazpacho is a clear staple of the Spanish Mediterranean culinary culture. It seems it has been around forever – every household in Spain has its own recipe. However, it all started in the hot southern region of Andalusia. Gazpacho existed before Columbus discovered America and back then were no tomatoes in Europe. A long long time ago, local Andalusian farmers and shepherds who worked under the hot Mediterranean sun created their own blend of ingredients to help nourish, hydrate and sustain them. They blended whatever vegetables they had on hand, and this evolved over the years to what we know now as Spain’s famous signature soup or drink: gazpacho.
