    1. I was thinking someone at Campbells should have told marketing “Well, no.” to using that name, but your pun works just as well.

  1. I looked all over for decent reviews of this soup before I bought it yesterday but I couldn’t find many!! Unfortunately had to learn the hard way and buy a can to try lol.
    I LOVE soups & I love knowing my soup has quality ingredients so when I saw these I was excited to try. I purchased the roasted chicken with wild rice & it was awful. It had a strange ginger taste!! The taste was over whelming and i had to dump it out!! The worst soup I’ve ever bought so needless to say, I’ll never buy another can again. If anyone’s tried the chicken noodle I’d love to know your thoughts x

    1. I had the sweet potato corn chowder and added some Cayenne pepper and a pitch of salt. It was actually pretty decent. Better then most canned soup IMO

  2. Have tried a few of the varieties offered in this new Well Yes line. Honestly, I cannot find a good thing to say about any of them. The description on the cans surely does not resemble anything that is inside. In a blind taste test, I probably could not come close to guessing what the ingredients are or what flavor I was eating. Enough said.

  3. I just checked the labels since they’re on sale for $1.50 this week, and unfortunately for me they all have either cream or chicken in them (vegetarian allergic to dairy here) except for the Italian vegetable with farro. Too bad, some of the others really sounded interesting. Deep sigh. Hope I can find the Italian one to try, especially since I want to try farro.

    One thing with soup is that you can always add other stuff to make it better if it doesn’t hit the spot as-is — spices, pasta or rice, frozen or canned veg, corn chips (yes, Fritos are great in pea soup… so is chopped spinach), etc.

    I’m short on time and energy right now to divide things into portions my usual way (with Pyrex lidded bowls) for freezing. So I look for one-portion or close to it so I don’t try to survive on potato chips. (Hey, potato is a vegetable!) Minute Rice now has Ready rice/wild rice cups that are really good, take a minute or two in the microwave, and can be dumped into anything like soup as a one-shot. Sometimes you can get house brands of little cans of veg or get Libby veg cups. Birds Eye has a bunch of microwave-in-the-bag veg and grain combos that are really nice and no-brainers to cook, plus Uncle Ben’s has good standup packs of microwave grain combinations. I just eat half and use clothes pins to close the rest and toss back in the freezer to heat up again. It’s a good time to be alive.

  4. Saw this soup but did not try it because unfortunately like most all canned soups, except some organic ones, this soup contains wheat/gluten. I really wish they would come up with better options for those of us who can’t have gluten in our diet.

  5. Tried a sample of the tomato carrot bisque the other day and it was tasty. Today is stormy and rainy it so I decided to buy the chicken wild rice and it was terrible! There is a strange menthol taste to the chicken. And I was so hungry for it too! Thumbs down, Campbell’s.

  6. “Yes”….should be “Ouch”, this defiantly belongs in pet section. Then again my puppy wouldn’t eat this soup. Nice try “ouch”

  7. I had the Black Bean with Red Quinoa Soup and found some strange looking small white objects in the soup that I could not identify. Has anyone else encountered this?

  8. Glad I found some reviews before purchasing this product. I wish soup companies would make more low sodium varieties for people who are salt sensitive. I would like to try this soup myself and write my own reviews, but can’t afford to buy something I might not like. Our family eats a variety of homemade soups
    , and that’s a tough act to follow.

  9. I agree with what others said, the Chicken with Wild Rice tastes very off. It actually has a somewhat medicinal taste to it and I could not finish it! I did try a sample of the Tomato Bisque in the store and that was quite good, but I won’t be buying this one again.

  10. My daughter suggested I try this soup, but like most canned soups, it has a lot of sodium, more than needed. Not planning to buy since homemade soups are much better for you.

  11. Today, Thursday, February 16, 2017 I had my second can of Campbell’s Well Yes soup and I have to say, it was alright. I have no issue with not being a foodie can of soup. I eat it because its a better option than most highly processed options.

  12. My wife bought some and it takes like regular Campbell’s Soup. Seems like it just a new package for the same ole bland product.

  13. I received a free can of the Tomato Carrot Bisque. For lunch I made a grilled provelone and pepperoni sandwich, paired it with a hot bowl of Campbell’s tomato carrot bisque. It was a good lunch. This soup was tasty, I can’t speak on any of the other offerings.

  14. Tried the Tomato Carrot Bisque on a cold rainy day. Horrible metallic taste that could not be covered up by salt, pepper and a lot of crackers. Needless to say we will NOT be trying any of the other flavors. Disappointed.

  15. Bought the roasted chicken with wild rice today. Thank goodness I had a coupon and did not pay full retail price. Personal opinion- this is/was horrible! Not simply bad but just downright horrible-again just my opinion. Instead of “well yes” I’d say “_ell no”.
