Cons: 800mg sodium

Campbell’s® Chunky™ Country Beef & Dumplings with Hearty Vegetables Soup that eats like a meal®. When you’re hungry, you need Chunky®.   Chunky It fills you up right®

Fall into winter I buy a good bit of canned soups. Husband enjoys homemade and canned soups and he particularly likes Campbell’s canned soups.   The 18.8 oz can is about the right size for him to heat up in the microwave while I am in the classroom and away from the house during the day.

I enjoy the advertising surrounding chunky soups; both Husband and I enjoy football, the various advertising campaigns set in place using football players and their moms are always interesting, fun and entertaining. And, they trigger the notion to get a can or two when I am shopping at our local Reasors Supermarket.

The label notes that Country Beef & Dumplings with Hearty Vegetables Soup offers a full serving of vegetables and is crafted using Lean Meat.

I find Chunky soup is eaten more readily in our house than are some of the less hefty soups available. Husband takes to heart the notion that 30 selections filled with good sized pieces of vegetables and meat allow a nice variety of tasty flavors from which to choose to fill his perhaps NFL size hunger.

Now and then I do take some of the Campbells soups in the smaller containers to school to heat for lunch in our school Microwavable, I find the chunky soups while being a dandy size for Husband who stands taller than I and weighs somewhat more than do I tends to be a larger portion than I need to assuage my hunger. I like that Campbell’s works to meet the needs of all consumers rather than just those with larger appetites.

Occasionally I do prepare noodles or rice and pour a can or two of Chunky Soup over it for a quick lunch or light supper on snowy winter days. I find The Country Beef & Dumplings with Hearty Vegetables to be a tasty topping for rice or noodles; filled with good sized pieces of carrots and celery, seasoned beef, diced tomatoes in Juice, and peas as well as tomato puree, for added flavor the soup adds just the right touch for a cold winter meal as we watch football.

For a good source of protein, potassium and vitamins A & C Husband and I enjoy flavorful soups filled with vegetables and lean pieces of meat.
