Vivian’s Live Again

At the core of the Vivian’s Live Again mission is the belief that food should taste good and bring people together. We created our first soup mix while looking for an easy way to include gluten and dairy free friends in meals. We strongly believe it is wrong for food to exclude others or taste bad. We understand that foods most important function is to nourish us, not just our bodies, but also our minds, souls, families and friendships.

Like most new products, ours started as a way to overcome a problem. The problem was a church youth camp with a severely dairy allergic girl and church ladies who knew how to cook with canned cream soup. The thought of this girl feeling excluded by food was troubling, so we created a gluten and dairy free soup replacement. The church ladies did not have to change their cooking style, but everyone could eat together. Success!

Our products make it easy for the tired and rushed mother to make a quick family dinner that everyone will enjoy. We restore Grandma’s ability to make family favorite casseroles. We produce the ingredients to make comfort foods like sausage gravy or trendy and nutritious foods like Quinoa and Vegetable Salad. We provide rich and creamy base sauces for those who like to make their own culinary creations.

YES! It’s SO good!! It’s surprising. Not surprising that it’s good, but surprising that you just mix in water and it’s so good! I don’t get it! It’s just so good! Oh. Your tomato soup is so good. I don’t get it. It’s so good!

I used the multigrain flour for a cornbread, and it not only tasted good but made Grace poop as well . (Cause for celebration around here!) The soup mixes and the whipped topping – they were all great. The topping was a surprise; fake dairy is usually disgusting, honestly, except for some plain milks. The beginning color was dismaying, but during the whipping it lightened up so much. All 3 of us strongly preferred yours to Cool Whip, it tastes less chemicalish and has a creamier, richer texture (maybe mouthfeel is the word I want). And CW is milk-based. So, I say “Brava!”

I just wanted to thank you so much for creating such amazingly tasting gluten, dairy free foods. Your foods have literally made my life so much easier and my kids are much healthier. All three of my kids have multiple autoimmune GI. Diseases and have to be all grain (gluten) and dairy free. Although I have a bachelors degree in nutrition, I have not been able to find foods that they actually like, until we tried yours at the gluten free expo in SLC. I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am that your family has developed such nutritious, great tasting food that even my super picky kids love. It has made such a difference in our family and I really wanted you to know how amazing your company is. Thank you!!

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!
