"Nearly 150 years after its inception, The Campbell’s Soup Company remains one of the most successful food corporations in the world. It dates back to 1860 when Abraham Anderson, an icebox manufacturer, opened a canning factory in Camden. In 1869, Joseph A. Campbell, a Philadelphia produce vendor, went into partnership with Anderson and together, the two began canning and selling vegetables, condiments and other goods. By 1876, three years after Walt Whitman arrived in Camden, Anderson was out of the picture, and Campbell had taken full control of the business and renamed it the Joseph Campbell & Company."
The history of the company is quite interesting and though some might not like them I always felt an affinity with the Campbell's Soup Kids and have a set of potholders in my sewing box I need to finish now that I think of it.
Recently I did a post on my lunch choices. Admittedly this is not the most economical way for a noon time meal but compared to the others in my office who go out to lunch each day I am saving a bundle. Every few months I have to change it up a little as I get bored with my selection. Imagine my delight last time I went shopping and found that Campbell's had introduced a new line of soups, and they are delicious! I know I do get excited about little things but gratitude is one of the best ways to appreciate our lives no matter what the situation.
One of the really neat things about these soups in addition to the varieties is that they can be heated right in their bags and it only takes 2 minutes so one is not creating a line-up at the office microwave. These are wonderful for a lunch or an addition to any dinner meal.
Ummm, Ummm, Good!
