Campbell’s Soup K-Cups Are Coming
Chicken soup for the coffee-addicted soul

For those who are thinking about getting a french press, think again: Campbell Soup Co. is debuting a line of Campbell’s Soup K-cups that can be made with Green Mountain’s Keurig machines, the AP reports.

The new one-minute dish will include a K-cup of broth that can be brewed over a packet of dried veggies and noodles.

The meal will be marketed towards young professionals on the go and will be available in three varieties, including Chicken Broth & Noodle.

Green Mountain says that the Keurig machine has a self-cleaning brewing process, so no need to worry about chicken-flavored coffee.

You'd think this would fuck up your next cup of coffee. I've never used a K-cup machine, though.

EDIT: I could try reading the whole article.

It looks like it'll be an overcomplicated and overpriced Cup-A-Soup.

Well you could use a Keurig to fill a Cup-A-Soup if you didn't have a kettle or microwave... basically use it at an insta-hot.
Yep... the K-cup gimmick is just taking the saline-death powder out of the flavor packet, and putting it into a K-cup to save you the grueling task of ripping open a packet and pouring it's contents into a cup. A convenience that'll probably cost you around 2 bucks.

Since when did broth require brewing?

I can't even handle the Ramen death powder packets anymore. It's like drinking a bucket of seawater. I feel desiccated and sick, and I can feel my blood pressure rising.

I just use a sprinkle of the death powder and season(Mazco Culinary Enterprises, INC. All rights reserved) the rest of the way with chili-garlic sauce.

Yeah I had a cup of those ramens a week ago and I only used about 1/3 of the embalming powder. It was still too salty. Bleccchhh!

Ya that's why I try to stay away from a lot of processed food... holy shit it is salty. My chick got some squash seeds and they were so frigging salty you could only eat a couple... I ended up throwing them away.

About the only "TV dinners" I can eat are the Marie Calender ones... tried some of the others and again holy shit were they full of salt.

Half a packet of seasoning, and a squirt of sriracha sauce.

I love this shit:


Take it to work and just use the hot water out of the
watercooler. No nuking needed. That and a bowl of
salad makes a nice easy lunch.

maybe it will improve the taste of the swill coffee afterwards

people have lowered their standards so much

used to be bigger, clearer TVs and bigger and clearer sounding speakers playing a better recording of music

now it is watching TV on their phones and listening to 120k, worse than 8 track sound on 50¢ ear buds

and coffee that is worse than the old coin op coffee machines

whats next? TV dinners served at fine dining establishments?

Try going to Olive Garden (not exactly fine dining, but it's an example) and asking them to make any substitutions - they'll explain that most of the food is pre-made and frozen.

They would be nasty. I used to have a Keurig, and after you use it for coffee 100x's in a row, the coffee is set in the "cup" part of the machine. Want to make some nonsense flavored tea for the wife? Hope she likes a hint of coffee in it. You'd have to break down the machine and clean the cup out thoroughly before making "soup" in it.

Not really. The Keurig is actually a pretty smart design in that respect. There is only a tiny bit of surface area that the "product" comes into contact with after it exits the K-cup... and you can pop the whole cup holder assembly out and rinse it off in about 10 seconds.

So unless your using gasoline-flavored K-cups, there really isn't going to be a problem with "contamination" flavors.

My old boss had about a 2 gallon coffee pot. His wife got him some tablets to clean it and he brewed them up one day. The shit that ran out of that pot should never be discussed. Then he said the coffee tasted wrong for weeks.
