A bowl of tomato bisque
The Classic Campbell's Soup You Should Never Purchase
Campbell's has many soup flavors, but not all are equal. When Tasting Table ranked store-bought tomato soup, the brand's tomato bisque came last.
The base ingredients include tomato puree, water, and sugar. Unlike Campbell's regular tomato soup, the bisque also includes cream and diced tomatoes in tomato juice.
According to Tasting Table taste testers, the flavor lacked the robust tomato essence that makes tomato bisque iconic. It also became runny once the water was added.
Overall, the soup had a dull red color, tasted cheap, and was void of the vibrant tomato taste we love in tomato soups. The overly runny texture was the final nail in the coffin.
