Campbells Slow Kettle Style Soups - #SlowDownAndSavor
I love soup!
There is nothing like being warmed from the inside out when eating a bowl of warm soup. Here in Oregon the weather can be pretty miserable for long stretches from Fall through the Spring. One way I cope is to curl up with a good bowl of soup.
Of course, the only thing to make it better is a soup I don't have to spend time chopping and stirring. Luckily Campbell's has introduced their Slow Kettle Style soups!
Maybe you grew up with a wide variety of Campbell's cans in your pantry growing up, I sure did! But, these are different. They are ready to be heated, full of savory and delicious chunks of real food in grown up flavors. I was sent an assortment of 3 soups to try: Kickin' Crab & Sweet Corn Chowder, Portabello Mushroom Madeira Bisque and Tuscan-Style Chicken and White Bean.
You can find all of these and more in your local grocery store in the soup aisle. I still have many other flavors that I want to try out.
Before my kids were born Campbell's launched those fabulous cup of soups, tomato and broccoli and cheese that I found so handy to heat up at work. These are so much better! The flavors are deeper and more complex with chunks of crab or beans, etc. depending on the flavor. They are just as easy and convenient to pop in the microwave for 2 minutes as their predecessors but these are closer to the soups I make at home.
I just have to rave a little more about the chunks. My favorite of the three was the Kickin' Crab and Sweet Corn Chowder. With flame roasted onions and cayenne pepper it was loaded with sweet chunks of crab meat and corn.
For vacation this Spring we headed to a water park. One of my favorite aspects of the hotel we stay at is they have mini fridges and microwaves right in the room. I took a few Campbell's slow Kettle Style Soups with us on the trip and they were the perfect way to warm up and relax between water slides. If you are a frugal vacationer like me, stock up on these soups for your big family trips this Summer!
The hardest part about these soups is getting to the bottom. Don't forget to lick your spoon!
This pregnant mama has had her ups and downs in the past month with more nausea, fatigue and general pregnancy "blahs"... but I have allowed myself time to #SlowDownAndSavor with a bowl of Campbell's soup. The nice people who sent me the samples also sent me these rockin' striped socks for my tired swollen feet. Wasn't that nice of them?
I want to know, how do you slow down and savor? Which flavor of the Campbell's Slow Kettle Style Soups do you want to try?
