Blount Organics Savory Harvest Bisque, which is not only certified organic, but also certified vegetarian, comes to life when sweet butternut squash and carrots are pureed with ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon and finished with diced apples, sweet potatoes and just a hint of rosemary.

“Our Organic Savory Harvest Bisque is one of the most unique and delicious soups to hit stores in the last several years,” said Bob Sewall, Blount’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “This soup, with its layered flavors, striking color, gentle texture and pleasing aroma, appeals in the most wonderful of ways to four of the five senses. Our culinary team really nailed this one.”

Other Blount Organics soups being sampled at #ExpoEast include Organic Tomato Bisque, Organic Vegetarian Chili, Organic Lentil & Chick Pea Soup, and Organic Ancient Grain Minestrone Soup.

Blount Organics Savory Harvest Bisque is available for immediate order, and ships refrigerated in cases of six, 16-ounce cups with an SRP of $5.99. All Blount Organics soups have a 50-day shelf life.
