so what's the best canned chicken soup?

sometimes it seems like the more i spend--the worse it is.

      i've tried campbells, progresso, amy's, wolfgang puck's, and walnut acre's. i just bought trader joe's today. and i am wondering specifically about chicken soup -- complete with the veggies/noodles/chunks of chicken etc. instead of broth.

        I know it's not "canned' but did you try the Trader Joe's chicken noodle soup in the refrigerated section? I'm with you on not liking any of the canned varieties that I've tried, but will stock up on the prepared soup at TJs every time I'm sick or craving my mom's soup. It's got dill, veggies, white meat chicken, and great flavor.

          My favorite Chicken soup EVER is applebees chicken noodle..its SO delicious and now that they have a TO GO menu it is even better!! Try it 'll thank me!!

      2. Is chicken soup the same as chicken broth? if so then I buy Costco free range chicken broth. Not in a can though.

        1. got to be Heinz Cream of Chicken. The taste of being off school "sick" when I was a child!

          1. My favorite has always been Chunky Chicken Noodle when it comes to canned soup. I very rarely eat soup, though.

            1. I generally eat canned chicken soup when I'm really desperate and in a pinch. My brand is Healthy Choice; but still, I can really taste the "tin".
              I generally keep stock on hand, both homemade and Pacific organic chicken stock from Costco.
              I still have an affection for the occasional Campbell's tomato soup, however.
