OREGON -- I am so sick of every company giving us less product for the same price. Campbell's family size soup cans are a joke and insulting to American families who now have to buy two to get the same amount they used to depend on from one can. Yeah, yeah, I get corporate profits, shareholder dividends, etc. However, was their strategy to seek out another profitable quarter to screw over families that actually depended on a large can of soup at least one or two nights a week? This is why I hate companies based in NJ. Goodbye Campbell's soup. Screw you.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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).
