What a Tease!

I read a headline in a newspaper today that claimed the lovely, unbeatable, perfect-partner-for-a-grilled-cheese-sandwich Campbell's Tomato Soup was coming back to the UK after an apparent two-year absence. I began to salivate and dream of steaming lunches on cold snowy days... and then was smacked into reality...

The truth is that Campbell's-branded Tomato Soup will soon be available in UK grocery stores in a what the article described as "in a dessicated can-free form".  One can only assume this means either a sachet full of power pretending to be the ingredients of tomato soup or a cup-o-soup which will produce a watery red-ish liquid in a red Campbell's-branded plastic tub not at all worthy of my grilled cheese sandwich.

What a disappointment.

Seriously, Campbell's, if you can't do it right, don't do it at all.  Please try again.


  1. Why in the world would they ever ever make a dried out soup? Unless you are an astronaut, I think that is a terrible idea. :(

  2. If I can order stuff on, you should be able to order stuff from They sell Campbell's tomato on there... there's even limited edition yellow and orange tomato soups.

  3. That's the one Campbell's soup I really dislike.
