CP Authentic Asia Shrimp Wonton Soup with Noodles at Costco

I almost wish I didn't know about this CP Authentic Asia Shrimp Wonton Soup with Noodles.  I bought this at Costco because Bob likes shrimp and soup, and it turns out we love this product. The broth flavor is delicate; each wonton contains a whole large shrimp.  I even like the thin wheat noodles underneath the wontons.

I paid $12.89 for the Costco package that contains six bowls, which seems expensive for soup, but this is more like an entree, even though each bowl is only 260 calories. 

CP stands for Charoen Pokphand – meaning “Prosperity in Food”. Here's an advertisement for the soup. CP is a Thai company, so that might be the language in the ad, but I'm not sure. The ad plays on my desktop computer, but I can't see it on my phone.



Microwaving takes 4 minutes. I like to eat mine with chop sticks, but Bob uses a soup spoon. I guess this is about as far from locally sourced as you can get.

  1. We need more, more I tell you. This stuff is simple, sinfully good, quick to prepare, and a wonderful comfort food in cold weather.

  2. The picture on the outside is misleading. Wontons are small, very little flavor, few noodles and nothing else. Oh and you have to add water.

  4. My local Costco no longer carries this brand. It is now offered by "Chicken of the Sea." The dumplings and shrimp are much smaller and the noodles are tasteless. This is a much inferior product.
