#1642: Campbell’s Hearty Noodles Savoury Beef Flavour

I’ve reviewed two of these previously and haven’t been a big fan, giving one a 1.75 out of 5.0 stars and the other a 0.0 out of 5.0. I’m hoping this one will ‘break the mold’ as it were; I really like their canned soups! Let’s see if this cup has a little mmm mmm good in it!

Details of the side panels (click image to enlarge). Contains beef.

Detail of the lid (click image to enlarge). To prepare, add 280ml boiling water and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

Some of the seasoning loose in the cup.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added beef, broccoli and white onion. The noodles are thick and didn’t hydrate well at all; they were stiff and chewy and almost doughy. The broth was very light – bland. 0.25 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 063211176780.

I’m not the biggest fan of the mushroom, but I’ve found thjat this stuff is really versatile and awesome. Cook some rice, toss in some baked chicken and dump a can of this on top and wham – good stuff! Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup, 10.75 Ounce Cans (Pack of 4)

Wow what a diss – you didn’t make me soup so I’m out of here. Oh wait there’s soup now? Let’s get hitched!

#1371: Campbell’s Hearty Noodles Thai Flavour

Here’s a Canadian variety. I’m familiar with Campbell’s – they make really nice canned soups I would add to copious amounts of saltine crackers when I was a kid. I mean copious! Let’s see how this little cup fares.

Here’s the side panels (click image to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself.

The noodle block. The flavoring is in there with the noodle block and looks to be rather clumpy.

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles were thick and chewy, but not in a pleasant way. They seemed underdone and kind of, well, wrong. The broth had a kind of lemongrass and coconut scent that seemed a bit foul to me. Upon sampling, it seemed very fake and I understand what they were trying to go for, but they were still a long ways off. Not palatable. 0.0 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 063211176698.
