  1. MY LITTLE ONE REALLY LOVED CAMPBELL'S CHICKEN & RICE. I LOVED CHICKEN GUMBO. SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE SOMETHING CHANGED. THE ONLY CAMPBELL SOUP WE USE NOW IS TOMATO WITH TOASTED CHEESE SANDWICHES. BEAN W/BACON IS PRETTY GOOD TOO. STILL TASTES GOOD. ALL COULD USE A BIT LESS SALT.

  2. The opening music is bizarre. It's like they were trying to find a royalty-free imitation of "In the Hall of the Mountain King". But the thing is, that song is already in the public domain. So why not just use the original song, rather than an imitation where every third note has been changed?

  3. The reasons I won't purchase or consume Campbell's soup:
    1. The meat isn't meat. Like nearly every other processed food company Campbell's doesn't use beef anymore. Instead it's "beef and binder product" – mostly cornstarch, wood shavings (cellulose gum) and potatoes starch alongside lots of toxic caramel colouring, msg, soy granules and tallow. Disgusting.
    2. Their products are heavy on the sugar, with tomato soup having more grams of sugar than a Snickers bar. Again, it tastes disgusting.
    3. Excessive use of dyes instead of fresh veg and real meat. I have a bad reaction to dyes like red 40 which they use all the time.
    4. Their competitors do it better. My gf and I like Rao brand a lot. It's significantly more expensive but the quality difference justifies it. Rao actually sells food instead of chemical flavourings and fake meat.

  4. Another click bait and unfulfilled content. Blah, blah, blah…… Left wondering the same question as the title at the end. Get a perky voice to exude cheerfulness and a script with no content. Put a catchy title on it but don't bother answering your own question and waste everyone"s time.

  5. I SINCERELY HOPE THE CAMPBELL'S SOUP COMPANY STAYS OPEN AND STILL PRODUCES THEIR SOUPS. I HOPE YOU BRING BACK GREEN PEA SOUP. ONE OF MY FAVORITES, WHICH I HAVEN'T SEEN SINCE ZELLARS CLOSED. I HOPE IT DOESN'T GO BROKE OR DISBAND. GOD HELP YOUR COMPANY. THE ONLY SOUP COMPANY I EVER BUY FROM, QUALITY SOUP. GOD BLESS THE FOUNDERS OF THIS COMPANY AND HOPE FOR US IN THE FUTURE. THIS CAMPBELL'S KID IS FOREVER CHANGED BECAUSE OF YOU. THANKS.I ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤💯💯💯💯💯💯💯🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  6. It's just too expensive. As a Gen Z consumer, I love their to-go sized soups and try to pick some up when they're on sale, but regularly priced they're almost $4/soup where I am. That's simply too expensive to eat as a canned item. I'd rather spend $4 on fresh foods to make a few servings of homemade soup.

  7. Campbell makes Habitant French Canadian Pea Soup. I use to like it a lot. The recent 2 cans i have found have been diluted badly. They have reduced the amount of peas and increased the amount of water. Its now sub standard. I will no longer buy that brand.

  8. Psalm 69[a]
    For the director of music. To the tune of “Lilies.” Of David.

    1 Save me, O God,
    for the waters have come up to my neck.
    2 I sink in the miry depths,
    where there is no foothold.
    I have come into the deep waters;
    the floods engulf me.
    3 I am worn out calling for help;
    my throat is parched.
    My eyes fail,
    looking for my God.
    4 Those who hate me without reason
    outnumber the hairs of my head;
    many are my enemies without cause,
    those who seek to destroy me.
    I am forced to restore
    what I did not steal.
    5 You, God, know my folly;
    my guilt is not hidden from you.
    6 Lord, the Lord Almighty,
    may those who hope in you
    not be disgraced because of me;
    God of Israel,
    may those who seek you
    not be put to shame because of me.
    7 For I endure scorn for your sake,
    and shame covers my face.
    8 I am a foreigner to my own family,
    a stranger to my own mother’s children;
    9 for zeal for your house consumes me,
    and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.
    10 When I weep and fast,
    I must endure scorn;
    11 when I put on sackcloth,
    people make sport of me.
    12 Those who sit at the gate mock me,
    and I am the song of the drunkards.
    13 But I pray to you, Lord,
    in the time of your favor;
    in your great love, O God,
    answer me with your sure salvation.
    14 Rescue me from the mire,
    do not let me sink;
    deliver me from those who hate me,
    from the deep waters.
    15 Do not let the floodwaters engulf me
    or the depths swallow me up
    or the pit close its mouth over me.
    16 Answer me, Lord, out of the goodness of your love;
    in your great mercy turn to me.
    17 Do not hide your face from your servant;
    answer me quickly, for I am in trouble.
    18 Come near and rescue me;
    deliver me because of my foes.
    19 You know how I am scorned, disgraced and shamed;
    all my enemies are before you.
    20 Scorn has broken my heart
    and has left me helpless;
    I looked for sympathy, but there was none,
    for comforters, but I found none.
    21 They put gall in my food
    and gave me vinegar for my thirst.
    22 May the table set before them become a snare;
    may it become retribution and[b] a trap.
    23 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see,
    and their backs be bent forever.
    24 Pour out your wrath on them;
    let your fierce anger overtake them.
    25 May their place be deserted;
    let there be no one to dwell in their tents.
    26 For they persecute those you wound
    and talk about the pain of those you hurt.
    27 Charge them with crime upon crime;
    do not let them share in your salvation.
    28 May they be blotted out of the book of life
    and not be listed with the righteous.
    29 But as for me, afflicted and in pain—
    may your salvation, God, protect me.
    30 I will praise God’s name in song
    and glorify him with thanksgiving.
    31 This will please the Lord more than an ox,
    more than a bull with its horns and hooves.
    32 The poor will see and be glad—
    you who seek God, may your hearts live!
    33 The Lord hears the needy
    and does not despise his captive people.
    34 Let heaven and earth praise him,
    the seas and all that move in them,
    35 for God will save Zion
    and rebuild the cities of Judah.
    Then people will settle there and possess it;
    36 the children of his servants will inherit it,
    and those who love his name will dwell there.
