Not all soup is created equal.

22. Split Pea Soup

Split pea texture is what I imagine eating chalk would be like, if the chalk was pea-flavored. Plus it's hard to eat without thinking about The Exorcist.

15. Miso Soup

Miso serves its purpose (getting your body ready for the inappropriate amount of sushi you’re about to digest) but — real talk — it’s pretty bland and lame in the grand scheme of soups.

13. Matzo Ball Soup

Sure, sometimes the matzo balls are so dense you feel like you ate a softball and are scared of what's gonna come out the other end. But when a matzo ball soup is done correctly, it’ll warm your entire soul.

8. Tomato Soup

Full disclosure: If all tomato soup was actually tomato-cheddar, it would be at the top of the list. But since it isn’t, tomato remains in the upper middle of the pack. Sometimes it is EXACTLY what you need and sometimes it's just tomato water.
