   I used to be way into soup before it got cool. I kept burning my tongue but it was so worth it

Just did a sampling event and bought a bag of the roasted red pepper with smoked gouda so I'm really getting a kick out of this article, and will get a kick out of the replies.

/its good soup.

We've tried most of them and we like them. I didn't taste any chemicals or plastic but maybe my soup-pallet just isn't as refined as Ms. Roth's.

Hmm . . . why not just run the Andy Warhol images? Maybe they're too expensive . . . but you'd think Campbell's could get a deal since he used their art.

It would be ideal. I think of Warhol as being the proto-hipstertm.

Sorry, nevermind, they already did it:

Seems hipster-enough to me.

Although the main reason I don't like canned foods is the BPA, not the artwork.

The image with quinoa and poblano chilés made me laugh so farking hard. You couldn't find a more hipster soup if it was produced in conjunction with Trader Joe's.

I love good soup. In my experience, no good soup is made by a company. It's made by you and whatever friends you can rope into cutting the ingredients.

As a youth in rural Canada we always had a case of mushroom and a case of tomato soup cans. Condensed soup is just the bomb.

The bags of soup look pretty gross though. I hate pouring soup out of a bag. It just isn't an activity that encourages an appetite.

Also something about the people on the bags makes me want to beat them with a tire iron.

Being born and raised in the Ecuador, the concept with quinua soup is nothing new to me...

But next time, it's beef instead of chicken, you damn philistines...

My favorite soup is ash-e reshteh. It's an Iranian soup, so you've probably never heard of it.

Also, everything sounds better on vinyl.

Why would you want to fark up perfectly good tomato soup by adding roasted red peppers?

There you have it. Not even the Canadians like their soup to be bagged.

Soup isn't hard by any objective measure.

Roasted red pepper with smoked gouda? Here's how I'd do it, just off the top of my head:

Get a pot hot, squirt some oil in. Throw in some mirepoix, cook for a couple minutes. Throw in some roasted red bell peppers (you can do this yourself or, even easier, get jarred or canned ones which are just fine). Deglaze with some white wine, reduce that almost nothing, pour in a bunch of vegetable stock and throw a bay leaf in there along with some other fresh herb like thyme or basil. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, let it go about 20 minutes. Pull the bay leaf out, then hit the soup with an immersion blender. Once you've smoothed it out, throw in some cream and let it simmer another couple minutes. While it's doing that, chop some smoked gouda cheese. Take the soup off the heat, add the cheese, stir until it's melted. Salt to taste, and hit it with a little black pepper.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Same. I didn't understand why a person's face took up most of the bag. Or why it was in a bag. So I just walked away.

It's because the secret ingredient in every mass-produced soup is the same: SALT. It has to be, to meet the required shelf life. You can't make a soup with a shelf life of more than one week without loading it with salt.

It's tasty, but I dunno if it's worth $4 a serving.
