Does Campbells Tomato Soup have more corn syrup/sugar than it used to?

Asked by Kraigmo (7895points) October 8th, 2013

I haven’t had Campbells Tomato Soup in about 7 years. I bought one today and it was sickly sweet. I remember it being sweet, but not this sweet.

Is the soup now sweeter and does it have more sugar/corn syrup than it used to?

Or are my tastebuds just drastically changed?

Funny that you mention that. I thought the same thing.
It had been years since I’d eaten it. I’m pretty sure it will be years before I eat it again.

I think years ago they used sugar and now they use corn syrup. That might account for the different taste.

Perhaps you’re noticing the lack of salt. They drastically reduced the sodium content in 2009. Although oddly, I think the couple in the video concluded that the older version tasted sweeter.

Here’s an admittedly subjective comparison. The calorie count should tell the story, but I don’t have either the old of the new to compare. We make our own. That way, we know what’s in it.
