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).
I don't know why or when Campbell's changed its recipes but I was raised on Campbell's soup. I can no longer afford the much smaller sized cans for one, but the horrible aftertaste is more than I can take. Wal-mart and Hannaford brand is cheaper and better than Campbell's now. It is sad the way manufacturers abuse their customers by changing and shrinking their products without notifying us or taking our opinions into account since without us, they wouldn't have their businesses... You open a can of soup and expect it to pour out. Instead, you have to scrape it out with a spoon. It tastes like cardboard.
CLEARWATER, FLORIDA -- I just bought 24 cans of Campbell's Soup. The first one I opened was the Tomato & Basil. It was just a thick blob of tasteless sweetness which was a total disappointment. If Campbell's can make millions selling rubbish like this then someone needs to put them out of business. I found the taste of this product highly offensive and the last bit that was left I had to close my eyes and just swallow it. I might add that I have been cooking authentic Italian pasta for many years and one of my regular recipes is tomato and basil. This tastes nothing like that. Gross Gross Gross. Don't waste your money on this product.
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 front 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 haven't bought the Chunky Brand in a while, but it's cold outside and wanted something warm to eat. I got the Sirloin Burger, just like I did a while back. This time it was at least 75% water. I had to add a half sleeve of crackers just to give it “body”, so I could eat it with a spoon instead of a straw. I remember it being a lot more bulky and “Chunky” back in the day. I remember a lot more “Sirloin” also.
MONTICELLO, MINNESOTA -- This has been one of my favorite soups in the past. However the last two cans that I bought have changed my opinion. There wasn't one single piece of chicken in either can. Very little corn and mostly carrots and potatoes. I'm not sure how either of them passed any inspection if you even have inspections. Very disappointed and not likely that I will buy that kind of soup again.
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.
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".
