You're bundled up, feeling the chill in your bones, and you've got that craving for some heartwarming goodness. What's your ultimate go-to soup to beat the cold?

In the chilly winter months, my ultimate go-to soup is Campbell's Fiesta Nacho Cheese. I take it up a notch by sprinkling in some shredded cheese and tossing in a handful of Tostino's Tortilla strips for that extra crunch and flavor. It's my perfect bowl of warmth and indulgence!

What's the top soup nationwide?

Well, according to a recent survey by Panera Bread, it turns out that across 49 states, the unanimous favorite is a bowl of broccoli cheddar soup. Are you as surprised as I am that Kneophla isn't the favorite soup of North Dakota?

But wait, there's always one rebel in the bunch, right? In this case, it's Minnesota breaking away from the broccoli cheddar trend. The Land of 10,000 Lakes has a soft spot for Cream of Chicken & Wild Rice – a unique and flavorful choice!

Now, let's talk runners-up. Coming in strong at second place nationwide is the classic chicken noodle soup – a timeless favorite. And, not too far behind, we have the velvety delight of creamy tomato soup.

So, when the winter chill has you shivering, grab YOUR favorite bowl and savor the warmth of a delicious soup. Stay warm, folks!
