I have had 2 ankle/foot surgeries when I couldn't put weight on the surgery site and was hobbling on crutches. Even dealing with a microwave was major. So eating out of a can was more than OK!

It's classy so long as you combine it with the right pairings and other courses.
For example , Spaghetti-Os straight from the can go well with an Easy Cheese and sardine appetizer. Just spray the Easy Cheese directly into your mouth, grab a sardine straight from the can and chew it up together. Then for dessert I always suggest spraying a blast of Reddi Whip into your mouth then popping in a Maraschino cherry straight from the jar. To cleanse your palate in between courses, try shaking up a bottle of FayGo, spraying it on your shirt, then suck the beverage directly out of the shirt.

I had to do that before...my husband rented a wheelchair for me because he wanted me to still be able to cook dinner during my 3 month recovery. I would have been happy with soup out of a can.

Normally it is what we used to call good manners!!!! I would hope most of us still call it that. No, I would not eat soup out of a can, but if it doesn't bother you, that is your business. Just don't be too surprised when people give you a strange look.

Now there are times when eating out of the can is not only ok, but better than starving: Yes, camping in some cases, being stuck in the middle of nowhere, another example. It certainly isn't always classless...
We now have square bowl to make this slurping easier on my permanent room mate:>)

My parents furnished my first apartment (no kitchen, closets, ... are built in back home; naked walls and ceilings), I found a case of baked beans and a bottle of Merlot in the fridge when I moved in. They knew what I was eating when they were not looking.

Is this a serious question? Unless it's an end of the world scenario or survival training....heat the dang soup up and eat it in a bowl. It's all a part of being civilized.

You can eat anything in any fashion you wish. Food police don't exist as of yet.

Drink it from the can or anything else you care to do. At least you are eating.

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.
Sounds like a terrible idea. Canned soup really needs to be boiled to make sure it is safe. Hope you don't get food poisoning.

I take soup on vacation too. It is a complete meal without having to have more ingredients.

Lesave the can under the windshield of your car and it will be plenty warm enough.
