Thread: Has anybody tried the new Campbell's V8 Soups?

    Default Has anybody tried the new Campbell's V8 Soups?

    OK I could make all of them myself - undoubtably cheaper. BUT This is
    just two servings in one of those shelf-stable packages and comes in 5
    flavors. Butternut Squash, Tomato Herb, Garden Broccoli, Sweet Red
    Pepper and Southwestern Corn.

    I am cooking for one (boring) and have always been incapable of making
    anything less than a gallon of any kind of soup from scratch.

    These look like they're vegetarian, but they have varying amounts of
    cholesterol that's some kind of dairy, The ingredients aren't listed
    on the website, but the nutritional info is:

    I've wondered about those, too, Lynn. Glad you asked.

    Do they have "natural flavor"? That can be
    almost anything. Given the "no holds barred"
    situation in the U.S. with regard to Mad Cow
    Disease, I don't eat anything with "natural
    flavor".

    Lynn,
    Thanks for bringing this up. Your post is the first I have heard of
    these soups. They all look good, but the Sweet Red Pepper Soup really
    has me interested and I may go out and get some tomorrow night.
    Nothing like a great bowl (or two or three!) of soup on a cold night!
    And with ICE cold milk!

    Thanks!
    Anthony

    I don't think one should bother with less than a gallon of soup. I
    mean, really. Most of it freezes if it should come to that.

    I live alone if'n you don't count the cat. I make soup in 2 to 3 gallon
    batches. Sure the same soup would get boring if that was all I had in the
    freezer. So I make 3 or 4 types over say a month on every Saturday and
    then I'm set for most of a year for lazy meals and fast lunches at work.

    May I suggest Jill's butternut squash soup for easy making and good taste
    and Nancy's Tortilla soup for just plain good eats.

    I keep on saying I'm going to make both of those and I never do. Butternut
    squash is really cheap right now, so as soon as I finish up my gallon of
    French Onion soup, I think I'll start with the butternut.

    He does. And I don't like canned soup any more at all. I think I make too
    much of my own. Except, chicken noodle. I like those mooshy noodles.
