The Crab Bisque is described as being made with jumbo lump crabmeat and a blend of spices in a cream-based soup. In reality, there was only one or two lumps of crab, the rest being broken up bits and shreds. The soup consistency is pastey and floury with not a whole lot of flavor. The crab itself does have some flavor, but not a whole lot when singled out. There is a bit of Old Bay spicing in there, but not enough to save the soup.
Overall, the soup turns out to be very bland. At least in this instance, there was just way too much flour in the soup, neutralizing the flavor and causing the texture to be way too thick. Adding crackers does put some crunch in there, but with all of the other startch in it, adding them isn't recommended as it becomes a startch overkill. Mind you, this just may be a consistency issue, so your mileage may vary. If it does, let us know in the comments!
