if You eat first with your eyes, then your nose, then your mouth, then Campbell’s Go™ Soup’s have themselves a winner right there itself. To be honest, I almost always let my nose do the tasting before I take the first bite. Yes, food presentation is important but not crucial as personally to me it’s the aromas and ultimately taste which is the true tester.
At first glance or sniff Campbell Soup impresses you on the mark. The aromas are definitely indicative of that taste to follow. The scents especially of spices are so brilliantly contained that if I had to partake in a blind-folded tasting, I would easily be able to define the soup ingredients based on a mere sniff.
Here are my individual tasting notes for each flavor I tried.
Creamy Red Pepper with Smoked Gouda: The hint of smokiness of the Gouda combined with the sweet red peppers could fool you in thinking that you were eating a creamy and luscious roasted tomato bisque. Yes, it was that good.
Moroccan Style Chicken with Chickpeas: The aromas of cinnamon and cumin were irresistible. I couldn’t stop myself from eating the entire bowl. My only quibble being that it should be labeled Moroccan Style Chickpea Soup with Chicken, since there were more chickpeas than chicken in this soup. Either ways, it was a bold and beautiful soup.
Chicken with Quinao and Poblano Chilies: The quinao and poblano chilies added a hint of sweetness to the broth. And the addition of lime/lemon transported the entire experience to a level of freshness not typically associated with ‘canned/bagged’ goods.
Spicy Chorizo and Pulled Chicken with Black Beans: As the name suggests, yes the soup is indeed the spiciest of all flavors I tried. Definitely a hearty soup with generous portions of corn and black beans.
Coconut Curry with Chicken with Shitake Mushroom: The addictive scent of kafir lime in itself had me a winner. Delicately spiced with a coconut based broth, this soup was hands down my favorite flavor.
Golden Lentil with Madras Curry: The lentil seem was perhaps the only one which seemed tasteless. Honestly it felt like a mushy blog of greens and lentil. Did they omit the ‘Madras Curry’ perhaps in my batch?

Bottom Line: There was no after taste that I expect from canned/bagged goods. And if I may, the soups tasted ‘fresh‘. Now if only I can refrain myself from glancing at the nutritional information, (especially sodium and fat intake), I would most certainly allow Campbell’s Go Soup to come to my rescue on those hectic days when I need a helping hand in the kitchen.
The question remains have you tried Campbell’s Go Soup yet? I would love to hear which flavor appealed to you the most? Or is there another flavor you would like to recommend to Campbell’s?
