The White Cheddar Soup base is out of this world. The first time I had it was at my Sister-in-law’s house during a BYU football game. I was so glad she made enough to have 2nds and 3rds. When I describe it to my friends I tell them it taste’s like the soup you get at expensive restaurants for $7.00 for a small cup. It is very versatile and so easy to make. I use it for quick meals.

My son hates soup of any kind. So normally I don’t make soup because I don’t want the argument. My mother dropped off some creamy turkey chili she made using Shirley J Original Cream Soup and Sauce Mix. I didn’t feel like making anything else that night so I gave the kids the chili. The whole time my son keep saying, “Mom, this is good! I don’t like soup but I like this!” The son that has always hated soup, slurped this chili right up! In fact, both he and my three-year old daughter finished their entire meals, which never happens!

When accomplished food scientist Don Smith developed the recipe for Shirley J® Universal Sauce, in 1978, he knew he’d uncovered something miraculous. He named the company after his sweet wife Shirley J Smith, and built the Shirley J® reputation selling his innovative mixes to professionals in Restaurants, Schools, Business and Industry accounts, Hospitals and other large demanding kitchens.

Entrepreneurs Kelly and Mike Olsen bought the company in 2009 bringing over 40 years of commercial food experience with them. Their passion for new and innovative products and sales has led the company in a direction that now includes several sales channels including, retail, direct to customer, institutional as well as long term food storage/private label.
