You may have thought soup would never get easier than microwavable soup in a cup, but it's going to get easier. According to the Associated Press on Sept. 5, Campbell Soup is releasing soups designed to be cooked with a Green Mountain single-serve coffee machine.
If you're concerned that mixing coffee and soup might not really be your cup of tea, the company says that Green Mountain’s Keurig machines are designed so that they self-clean during the brewing process.
The soup company said that there will be three flavors available next year, including Chicken Broth and Noodle. The soups will include a broth packet that will be brewed over dry noodles and vegetables. This won’t keep you full for long though. The company is calling the soup/noodle combo a “snack.” But according to Nasdaq.com, that’s exactly what the company was going for.
“The deal will help satisfy the growing snacking behavior among U.S. consumers, providing them with an ultra convenient option for a hunger satisfying low-calorie afternoon snack."
For now, there's no indication whether Keurig would be able to branch out to include soups from other companies, such as Progresso.
Could you see yourself making K-cup soup snacks? Would they be able to replace saltier, higher calorie kids’ snacks?
