Whatever pleases your tastebuds! I never thought about eating unheated soup, but why not?

Not something I've ever done, but if it suits you, go for it. I love soup, but I always make it myself.

Is it unclassy? Sure is.
Have I done it? Sure have. (But not where anyone can see me.)

PS. I haven't done it in a long time but, when I did, I noticed a tinny flavor.

Not classy, but hey, there is a time and place for everything.

I've been known to pack a can of chili, fruit, or pork and beans along for my kayaking trips when I'm too lazy to make a sandwich. Sometimes I paddle along with the can open in the cockpit and grab a bite every few strokes, other times I actually find a cozy spot on land to enjoy a quick snack.

I've also brought a can of food work a few times, when I couldn't make my lunch. My coworkers give me a hard time about being *too frugal* (they know I'm saving up for a trip) but it's all in good fun.

I haven't done this much while at work, but the few times I did, I did pour it into a container and then heat it, since it seems eating out of the can at work may not look so good.
What you described has nothing to do with classy but more on nasty. Really? Cold soup in a can? I imagine how salty it is. Just overall nasty in my opinion. Canned soup will NEVER be on my list to eat when camping or on vacation.

The point of vacation and camping is to eat good food right?

There are plenty of really tasty lower-sodium canned soups. Many of the Progresso Soups come to mind. It's not all as bad as Campbell's condensed soups.

Sure, but we can't always munch on chips with slimy cheese dip, Snickers Bars, and half-burnt, half cold wieners on a stick.

Find a warm spot under your hood and stick there and let it heat up.
