Have you tried Campbell‘s slow kettle soup yet? I have. Tempted by selections like Beef Burgundy Stew, Tomato & Sweet Basil Bisque, Tuscan-Style Chicken & White Bean Soup and Southwest-Style Chicken Chili, I bought a plastic container of the Beef Burgundy. Boy do I regret spending the almost $4 on it. The beef was dry and tough. The mushrooms were non-existent–I mean there were two in the container. Yes, I counted. It was lacking in flavor, but full of potatoes. Nothing like what I expected.
However–this is gonna sound ridiculous–I was most disappointed in the container. Unlike the microwavable soups that are sold in a cup or bowl, the plastic packaged slow kettle soups cannot be microwaved in the container in which they come. The package clearly states that the soup must be put into a microwavable bowl, covered with a paper towel and cooked. This takes away from the convenience for me. If I’m buying soup in a plastic container I expect to be able to microwave it at work or home as needed.
In the end, I wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone. If you choose to try it, make sure you have a beverage handy to help you choke it down.
