Has anyone out there noticed that lately Campbell's Soups are getting extremely salty?
Most of them have gone from HMMMM GOOD!! to HMMMM SALTY
Your thoughts and replies will be appreciated

I think they have gotten extremely salty. I bought a can of chicken noodle a couple of months ago because everyone was sick including me and I didn't feel up to making my own. I couldn't get it down for all the salt. Its really a shame I used to buy alot of their soups but not anymore.

This is the case with myself; I had surgery yesterday and bought a few cans because of my restricted diet, and they were almost briny; this happened today, I was upset, because i can't get anything else that i can eat right now;
I did call them and they apologized and said that they were sending me something in the mail. At least that made me feel better; but I will think twice if I'm ever under the weather, I know that some generic brands like "Dollar General's" Clover Valley brand are almost as good,but i didn't go to this store yesterday; i stopped at a supermarket and wanted to get in and out as quick as possible to get hoime and start convalescing.

Did you try the low sodium versions? All canned/processed foods are chock full of sodium -- it is used as a preservative.

...and chock full of monosodium glutamate too... the only campbells soup I eat on occasion is the tomato bisque because it goes good with the tried and true tomato soup/grilled Boars Head tavern ham and cheese/ritz crackers combo... yum.

Progresso soups aren't quite as bad. I try to find the low salt ones. Has anyone tried the organic/vegetarian soups like Ann's? I haven't but maybe they aren't as salty.

If you have been restricting your sodium you are probably just more sensitive to the taste of salt now.

I just emailed Campells to ask them why it is necessary to add salt to their soup at all. Also, why is lower salt soup MORE expensive than regular? Don't mean to dump on Campbells, but I assume all makers of processed foods have the same reasons.

I think we could sprinkle a little salt on our food and still be within reasonable salt levels if it was not added to everything already.
