Trader Joe's New Spicy Tomato Dumpling Soup Has People Talking

One of the newest soups to don the shelves of Trader Joe's is certainly an attention grabber, as it's a fresh take on those traditional jarred or canned tomato soups you're probably already used to. Thanks to a post from @traderjoeslist, many of the retailer's super fans have already shared their excitement, "This looks like a whole bowl of yum!! I'm a huge fan of Calabrian Chili (bomba sauce!) so I hope whoever gets to enjoy this soup reports back on its decadence." Called Trader Joe's Calabrian Chili Tomato Dumpling Soup, this new product is described through the Fearless Flyer as both satisfying and delightfully spicy (via Reddit).

If you're anxious for a taste of comfort food, without falling back on the somewhat blasé idea of plain tomato soup, you can rely on the flavors of this recipe, which combine creamy tomato with savory and simple dumplings. Adding an extra kick are Calabrian chiles, which are commonly found in southern Italy and known as the "Devil's Kiss" pepper (via Reddit). 

The delicious combo that is chili and tomato actually already has a lengthy history with fans, as one reader shares, "Oooh, this looks good. I already add a dollop of the Calabrian chili peppers into my bowl of TJ's roasted pepper and tomato soup, so this is right up my alley."

As for additional ingredients, you can expect the wheat-based dumplings to join tomato paste, heavy cream, carrots, oil, vinegar, basil, honey, onion, salt, pepper, garlic, and celery seed. If you have food allergies, make sure to read this label closely. The soup is available for a limited time only and sells for $3.99 for each 23-ounce glass jar, and it's clear that this'll be a fan-favorite.

The Reddit thread discussing this new product, says Trader Joe's describes this dish as hearty enough to be a meal by itself, but mentions our ever-present thoughts of adding a grilled cheese to dunk. One user also suggested adding chicken and either sour cream or Parmesan to taste. Those who have already had bowl or two describe the dish as, "a spicy, creamy tomato bisque with very small dumplings (husband thought they were pieces of pasta/gnocchi)" if that helps you decide how to eat this savory soup.

Fortunately there is no wrong answer for eating it, only waiting 'til the wrong time when this soup is sold out at your local store. This dish is great for curling up with a book in a cozy corner on a winter day, or an upscale addition to your family meal. Try it now!
