Hale and Hearty Soups Lately???

I have been a long time fan of Hale and Hearty Soups. It has been my standard lunch place for years. Has anyone noticed that the quality of the soups are not what they once were? Is it me or has the quality truly declined in the past few months? Someone told me that they read somewhere that the company was sold or something,or maybe they have a new chef. I'm not sure. But I have noticed a change. Am I alone here?

  1. Went for lunch again today. Had the Italian bean soup. Beans were very hard and crunchy. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

    1. I find a lot of soup places suffer in the summer when turnover is less.
