The stuff is great. It is based on the recipe served every day at the Senate restaurant.

The gov'ment makes many things top secret but the bean recipe ain't one of them.
It IS good stuff, auntdot. Actually we can get the real recipe for the bean soup. Yum. Ain't it great it's soup time of the year?

One of my favorites is Bear Creek in the pouch, the broccoli and cheese, wild rice, and chili. All good.

i love wolfgang pucks soups. since i buy them for my dinner, don't mind the price.

Yep, I like Campbell's too. But my favorite is La Madeline Tomato Basil - yum. Aunt Dot, whenever you make it to the basement, I'd love to know what brand the US Senate bean soup is.

Fisher's Mom, check out my post (#11) for the real Senate bean soup. You can make your own. Enjoy!

Oh, I just checked the link and that's what we always just called Navy Beans when I was growing up. It's one of my favorite meals - always with cornbread and a salad. But I've never made it with mashed potatoes, like the second recipe. Have you ever made it with the potatoes, Katie?

No, but being the Irishman (woman) I am, I can see that as a GOOD thing. It's certainly worth a try.

I like Campbell's, they usually do the trick in a pinch. Chunky style is ok, but I noticed that they seem to taste the same. Like they use the same soup base in each recipe, but the chunks are different. I have not had any Progresso soup that I liked except for the lentil variety. They were decent enough.
I liked the lentil, too, Sattie, but for some reason they disappeared off the shelves here and I haven't found them since and that's been years---I agree with the rest of their soups being blah.

Canned Soup Debate Reply

Hello, I just HAD to place a bit of input here. I too don't care for the progresso soups. I have tried some of the Campbells Soups... just watch out for the "Chunky Style Chicken and Dumplings" The soup itself isn't too bad, but the Dumplings have that "raw uncooled flour taste to them" it was quite disgusting.
