Manhattan Clam Chowder? ? ?

Has anyone ever seen a prepared Manhattan Clam Chowder in the store. Either canned or frozen. Just occurred to me I don’t think I’ve ever one.....

  1. Progresso makes one and Campbells did-do not know if they still do.

    1. Campbells does still make a condensed version Here is a link ---

      Chunky Soup used to make a great one...but now they only make New England. I live in Connecticut, but can't stand that version.

          By the way, if you can find a canned Datil Clam Chowder in our northern climes, let me know. It's a sort of spicy tomato/pepper based CC, and far better than the bland Manhattan kind, but I've only seen it in the southern states, esp. FLA.

            Found this, but try to call them. Their on-line form not working.

          1. Progresso's is hugely superior to Campbell's, surprise surprise. I had made a similar substance, only served with a dinner as a clear soup, and thought it'd be nice to try Progresso's for lunch a few days later, and in the process use the last cup or so of clam juice I'd bought to enlarge it a little. The Progresso's by itself was very good, and expanded with the extra clam juice was REALLY good.
