Can't decide between lobster bisque or french onion soup.. A roasted garlic soup can also be divine.. Great.. I'm starving now..

Old folk tale boiled down: each person in a village adds something to a pot of boiling water ending up with a tasty soup. (Google/Bing "stone soup" for more info)

Potato Leek soup is the best soup.

I'm torn between a hearty potato soup and French Onion.

Chicken Noodle is a comfy standby when nothing better is available.

I'm getting so hungry now.

Something else. Most of those in their normal forms are pretty bleh.

I'll never understand broccoli soup. I love broccoli and I love cheese; why anyone would do that to broccoli or cheese is beyond me.
Tomato soup is only good with a grilled cheese sandwich, chicken noodle is only good when you are sick. Much like beer proves there is a God and he wants us to be happy, clam chowder is proof of the existence of the devil and that he wants us to be miserable. Ham and bean and beef vegetable are decent, but meh. Stone soup can be anything.

If you are going with traditional forms (as the list indicates) I'd go with french onion or potato leek waaay before any of those listed. If you're including non-tradition soups, stews and chili type things the list gets much longer very quickly.

THANK YOU. I had almost lost all of my waning faith in humanity that no one had said Pho. Christmas, there's Pho (any variety), then there's a bunch of useless crap in a bowl.

In fairness, I feel this way about Vietnamese food and any other food in general.

Pho is great, but i think I've had it too much. I'm more of a chicken wild rice soup type of person.

Yeah, but you're from Minnesota. You're bound by law to like wild rice. Plus, you're kind of a lucky bastard and always get Vietnamese food. Not that I'm jealous.

Just like any food, it gets old after while if you eat it too often.

Could be, I only go out for it a couple times a month. I'd be willing to try to get burnt out on it though.
