13 Popular Campbell's Soups, Ranked Worst To Best
13. Vegetable
Campbell's condensed soups require you to add water to thin out the concentrated broth, and tend to be lackluster. The vegetables in the Old Fashioned Vegetable soup were hacked into barely recognizable forms of themselves, and the beef broth base is salty, heavy, and non-vegetarian.
12. Bean with Bacon
There's not much going on in this can — white beans, bacon, and carrots are combined with tomato puree to make a very one-note, albeit filling soup. There isn’t anything special about it, but it's much better than the Old Fashioned Vegetable soup, so we can't complain in that regard.
11. Chicken Quesadilla
Campbell’s Chunky Spicy Chicken Quesadilla soup is not that spicy, a major bummer when you're expecting a dish to have some heat to it. This soup has a tomato purée base that doesn't hold much flavor, and you'll need some grated cheese, tortillas, and hot sauce to make this one less boring.
10. Clam Chowder
Like any clam chowder, the Chunky New England Clam Chowder soup is supposed to be creamy, but it separates in the can, so you're left with a watery base. You can barely taste the clams, and while the soup is hearty with lots of potatoes, it’s rather bland save for a seawater-like flavor.
9. Tomato A to Z's
This was our favorite condensed soup of the bunch, since it's warming but relatively light, which makes it easy to get down when you're not super hungry. It also has letter-shaped pasta, which bulks up an otherwise light soup and makes it the kind of meal you'd want to eat after a long, hard day at work.
