Muir Glen Organic Reduced Sodium Chicken Noodle Soup was the tasting's most expensive soup and was at the bottom of the pack in terms of calories (fifth highest), sodium (seventh), and fat per serving (fifth). It was also the soup least liked by the panel.

“The broth has a sweet, almost gingery taste,” someone noted. “Mushy noodles and vegetables. Not sure what it tastes like, but it’s not chicken.” There were many similar comments. The gray meat was described as “super gross,” dry, and resembling cat food or tofu. The carrots disintegrated into a "weird broth" that had a medicinal smell, strange spice blend, and a slightly “off” taste. “What is going on with this soup?” a panelist asked. Comment of the day? “I had a weird tasting carrot (you know, new-car smell, but in a bad way? Cheap new-car smell…) Wait, the broth is like that, too.”
