Campbell's Soup Pouches

I’ve always thought cans were convenient soup packaging. Well, they were convenient when they got pull tab tops. Soup cans that involve can openers are definitely not convenient. (Spotted by Troy A at Meijer.)

  1. I’ll have to remember to look for that fish-n-chips meal; usually breaded fish or chicken doesn’t work well in the microwave, so hopefully the crisping tray will work well (it works great with Easy Fries)

    1. I’ve tried the Fish and Chips. It did crisp pretty well with the tray and I liked the meal better than I thought i would. I would buy again.

  2. I’ll have to check out the two Smart Ones entrees, as I’m always looking for quick and easy. It’ll probably be at least a month before they appear here, though.

    I don’t get the Salad Additions, though. For that price, and since I need to supply my own greens and raw veggies anyway, I might as well go to the salad bar.

  3. I’ve had the chicken and fries meal… it was small! There’s a reason it’s got so few calories, there’s two pieces of chicken that are the size of your index finger and a dozen fries or so. The crisping tray did a so-so job, it’s more like a crisping lid you peel off the top of the box and press down on the food (doesn’t make enough contact on the fries). I wouldn’t have known the fries were ranch seasoned and they could probably shave a few more calories off the box by not bothering with attempting to season them. Would get again if they were on sale.

  4. I had the chicken strips and fries today. They didn’t crisp up at all. It did take care of the french fry craving I was having. I had to get a small salad to go along with it. I knew it would not be enough food.

  5. Has anyone seen the Kool Aid yet? I always hoped it would come out in the 2 liter bottles; this is the next best thing lol. Is that a 64 ounce bottle in the picture?
