Squash season is in full bloom, and there's pretty much no better way to consume the yellow, bell-shaped plant than in a warm, cozy soup.

But if you've ever tried to make butternut squash soup, you know how much of a pain it can be to steam the fruit (yes, fruit), and get out the usable bits. So instead, many of us turn to store-bought options for both convenience and deliciousness.

Of course, like all processed foods, packaged butternut squash soups can contain plenty of sodium — like one-third of your recommended daily intake.

We've taken a look at popular brands and ranked them according to how much sodium each of them contains. And meanwhile, if you're feeling ambitious and find yourself with an extra squash on hand, you can always give one of these recipes a try too.
