When I opened a can of Campbell's Soup I encountered a bug. Considering I rarely eat Campbell's soup I thought what are the chances? Apparently it is not that uncommon. Perhaps Campbell's could put a warning on the label "may contain traces of insect". That way others can be forewarned to keep an eye out for creepy critters before they eat.
MARYSVILLE, WASHINGTON -- Having not had your Campbells Soup on the Go for a while, I thought since I had coupons for it I would give it a try again. Imagine my surprise it was the same as I had it a long time ago. A lot of broth, but no chicken and Star shaped pasta which was supposed to be in it. Now it would be nice if you put the items in the soup that it announces on the can that it has, but there was none and that was a waste of my money to say the least. I will not pick it up at the grocery store again.
CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY -- The label on this can of Select Harvest Soup reads: "100% Natural" and "Whole Grain Pasta Fagioli". The label additionally pictures a bowl of soup chock-full of pasta and nice looking veggies. To my surprise, I discovered a horrible tasting, watery mess inside the can. The substance was unlike Pasta Fagioli in that it reeked of a meaty flavor. In dismay, I read the ingredients to find that this weird substance contains chicken stock, chicken fat, pork, and beef extract. This product contains a fully deceptive front label in the regard that Pasta Fagioli is a vegetarian dish (contains no meat).
ORANGE, NEW JERSEY -- I brought a dozen cans of Campbell's classic chicken noodle soup that was on sales. The expiration date on the cans were September 18, 2013. I opened and warmed the first can and was disgusted when I tasted it. I thought that maybe my taste buds were off and had another sip of the broth. Terrible.
When I further examined the soup in my spoon, instead of the usual tender, pink chicken cubes, there were cubes of chicken fat. Fat particles floated throughout the broth. I overlooked it and said, "Probably one that got away from a bad batch. Not long after, I opened another can and there was the same mess of soup I'd had previously. Once again, I opened another can and experienced the same horror. I will be returning the cans to the supermarket. I'm really disappointed because I've been enjoying the 'Chicken Noodle' soup since childhood. "Shame on you Campbell".
I haven't tried Campbells' Soup in a while, but due to the cold weather, I bought a few cans. I love mushrooms and bought the Mushroom Swiss, looking forward to a real treat. There was 1 slice of mushroom in the entire can. Nothing tasted remotely like Swiss, but there were lots of potatoes! Next, I tried the Philly Cheese steak. It didn't taste remotely like Philly Cheese steak, and again there were lots of potatoes! Trying to give Campbells' the benefit of the doubt, I bought the Hearty Cheeseburger. It had 2 tiny burgers in an 18 oz can and again, lots and lots of potatoes!!!
I should have read the label first. The first ingredient is water and the 2nd is POTATOES! This is supposed to be Cheeseburger soup. What's with all the potatoes? From now on, I read the ingredients, not believe the picture on the front. I am really disappointed in Campbells'! You used to be a LOT better than this. What happened? I think it's time to give Progresso a try!
MERCHANTVILLE, NEW JERSEY -- Look, I like quick easy meals. Bought some chunky soup on sale, won"t pay full price - 1/3 of can was carrots. What? I'm not a rabbit. I want soup that's labeled in font of can, not carrot soup with other ingredient. All their soup is the same - carrots, carrot, carrots. What about something like celery? String beans? Peas? Are these vegetables too expensive?
I am SO disgusted with Campbell's soup products at this point. I grew up with Campbell's, raised my daughter with Campbell's as well, and for the last few years I have noticed the vegetable soups containing large chunks of rotted potatoes and carrots. In fact, about 1/2 of the can is filled with rotted potatoes and carrots. I don't even feed my dog rotted food.
Where is the FDA? Why aren't they doing something about this? What is wrong with you people?? You're supposed to provide an edible product! Campbell's.. if you can't provide a quality product anymore, maybe you folks should take a hint and pack it in. Products affected that I'm aware of are: Campbell's Vegetable soup (ABC), Campbell's Old-fashioned Vegetable soup, Campbell's Beef with Barley and Vegetables Soup, Campbell's Beef with Vegetables Soup.
I grew up on Campbells Chicken n Stars, Chicken w/ Rice and Chicken Noodle. Gave it to my boys as they grew up - their favorite was the Double Noodle and Mega Noodle. You can't watch TV without seeing the ads boasting of the switch to sea salt. I guess this may be a healthy move but it is a huge negative in regards to taste. The soups now seem to have a chemical taste - slightly bitter. Could you not have just reduced the salt so I could add my own salt to taste? Gave the Chicken Noodle to my son when he was sick and he couldn't eat it. I'm glad the last can is gone from my pantry and will now buy another brand which has the normal amount of salt but at least it is edible.
Purchased Campbells Select Harvest Clam Chowder in the New Container. Just spent half an hour cleaning the inside of our microwave, as it blew up and then tipped over all on its own. We have had this soup before in the can, but their new microwaveable container needs some technical work. Really ticked as the soup was on sale and my wife bought 20 of these new containers. Another drawback; is that the containers have a perforated lid; and the units do not have cellophane wrap; so there was dirt in between the top of the can and the lid.
This was the first time I tried your select soup and am really glad I only bought one. This soup was the nastiest soup I have ever ate. When I opened the can the smell was disgusting, but went ahead and heated it up. One taste and I threw it in the garbage disposal. Does anyone taste this soup before you sell it. I have used Campbells soups all my life, and this is really bad for your company as far as taste and smell. I hope you do better on the next soups you make, but for me I will not purchase the select soups ever again. Thank you.
