Review: Campbell's Chunky - Creamy Chicken and Dumpling Soup

Campbell's Chunky Creamy Chicken and Dumpling Soup is probably not as popular as their Chicken Noodle; it sports a lot of the same ingredients: chicken, carrots, celery, and peas, but in a creamy chicken soup.

An 18.8-ounce can cost me $1.50 on sale, but can range around $3 regularly.

The soup had a pretty good chicken-y flavor with a mild creaminess. While, like most soups, there's plenty of salt in the ingredients, I didn't find it to be too salty.

Of particular note was the chicken, which was surprisingly tender. Usually, the chicken I get out a soup can tends to be a little tough so this was a welcome experience.

The vegetables and dumplings were plentiful. The vegetables were good with a nice, soft texture. I wasn't a fan of the spatzle-type dumpling though. They were a bit grainy and flavorless. I didn't like the way they felt as they came apart in my mouth.

Overall, I liked the soup, chicken, and veggies of Campbell's Chunky Creamy Chicken and Dumpling Soup, but not so much the dumplings. Still, it's a pretty decent can of soup.

  1. I liked it in general. It reminds me of a good chicken pot pie; the dumplings substituting for the crust, and the rest for the filling.
