Last night, with nothing else as an option (well, nothing else I fancied), I ate a tin of soup. This wasn’t any old soup though, oh no, this was Heinz Scottish Vegetable Soup.
This has long been my favourite sort of tinned soup – it’s amazing, full of lentils, beef and butter beans – but the last time this was available to buy in the shops was about 3 years ago. I think I may have eaten the last ever tin of this soup in the world, ever!
Possibly there are other grief striken ‘Scottish Vegetable Soup’ fans out there who would have paid a fortune for it on ebay, but, I’ve gone and eaten it now – every mouthful taking me a bit closer to never having it again!
I kept the label – I may have to use the ingredients list as a starting point for a recipe and see if I can’t recreate it. In the mean time, if you see any about, maybe covered in dust at the back of some seldom-frequented corner-shop. Please, let me know!
