That each can contain 32 feet of noodles!! I laughed, because I can't see how that many noodles can fit in a can. Do you think it's true? Anyone want to measure? What is your favorite soup? Mom used to feed us tomato soup with crackers in it and I still love it.

HA! I knew it had to be an exaggeration! I don't know how they'd fit all that into a can, anyway. Welcome to myLot, kickit! You won't be able to post pictures, I don't think, till you reach a few hundred posts/replies. Won't be able to copy/paste for awhile, either. But stick with it, they add up quickly and it's a nice $10-20 dollars a month while having a really good time! Just remember to read the rules and never, ever post a referral link! Make a lot of friend requests and turn on your email notifications so you know when your friends start something you can reply to. Theoretically, they'll do the same for you. I hope you have fun here!

here's some creative kids that prove it to be TRUE! Just over 32 feet here. http://vcstudent.com/10-7-09

haha, that's funny. Do they measure the width as well? If that is 32 feet by 1 feet noodle, I think one can is enough to feed a family. They will probably need a super big can to contain all the noodle and the soup. I still prefer the clear chicken or fish soup noodle that my mother cooks. Next time I have to measure every single noodle to make sure I have eaten more than 32 feet!

It is funny, yes. But it's kind of sad, too--Americans go for big amounts, not quality. That's why we're so fat. Campbell's is appealing to our greed, not our common sense about nutrition. Mothers always make the best of everything!

Hi Dragon, does Campbell want to comment on the nett weight of the chicken used for the chicken noodle soup? I dont mind if they used 32 feet of chicken meat with a width of 1 feet in a can of chicken noodle soup. Since the name is chicken noodle soup, I hope they give equal amount of chicken too. I dont need too much soup, after all, can still add hot water to increase the volume of the soup.

I don't know about the 32 feet of noodles though but I"m sure if you can connect the noodles to 1 line then you actually might see it that long. As for the taste goes, chicken noodle soup was one of my favorites. I just love the tasty taste of the soup and especially the chicken.

I had some of it the other day because it was cold and I thought it wouldn't be too awfully bad for my diet. I had bought some "healthy" version of Campbell's and it wasn't at all what I liked. I was surprised how bland it was. The regular version has alarming amounts of salt and this one didn't. I ended up giving it to the dogs.

actually my favorite is home made refrigerator soup of course made from all you can find of left overs and veggies, etc. but as far as campbells i think you got it Tomato soup with grilled cheese. yum. thats a meal my daughter would never eat anything but chicken noodle every time she got sick. she'd always say, "mom get some chicken noodle soup, thats all i can eat"

Yep, the fridge soup is yummy because it's a mix of everything you've had for the last weeks or month! I like to put a little tomato juice or sauce in it for color and flavor. I like chicken noodle soup but it'll be in the cupboard for quite awhile because of the sodium content--it's huge! I fed my kids that soup when they were sick and they tell me that they still eat it to be reminded of me.

Yeah I saw that. I don't believe that! Maybe they put 32 feet in each huge batch @ the factory but not per can. Or are they meaning a industrial size can you know like they'd use for cafeteria's and such? My fav is minestrone, but not campbells. Though my grandma was diehard campbells soup fan.... it's too salty & not a good value for my money. I do like Olive Garden's version BUT I go there maybe 1x a year.

I recently started cutting way down on salt and was surprised how much salt is in soup! That's why I make my own now, although I have a few cans in the cupboard just in case I get the flu and don't feel like cooking. I really like Olive Garden! We got one here in my little town last year and I've only been there once, because it's always packed and you have to wait for a table. This depression doesn't seem to have affected that restaurant! Literally, there's no place to park from the time they open till closing time.

32 feet of noodles? What do they do, measure all the noodles that go into each and every can of chicken noodle soup? No, I don't think it's true. But even if it is it seems rather silly to claim such a thing. It reminds me of the two scoops of raisins in every box of Kellogg's raisin bran back when I was a kid. Although I never ate this cereal I had a friend that did during the time that they made their claim. She complained that there wasn't really 2 scoops of raisins. In fact, sometimes there were barely any raisins in there at all! Here's the commercial. It should bring back some memories! LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MUKIBfGN7c Before I forget, my favorite soup is none other than chicken noodle! Happy mylotting!

I do make my own now, since I became aware of how much sodium they put in canned goods and frozen dinners! I can't believe how much sodium there is! Making things fresh, yourself, is always the healthiest and tastiest way to do it.

I have never measure to see how long each noodle is in a can of chicken noodles soup so I can not say if this is true. It does seem like alot and there are lots of noodles in a can but the chicken is another story. My favorite soup is cream of mushroom. My mom used to fix vegetable beef soup alot because we got our potatoes, meat and vegetable all in one. I like it when I was young but because I ate so much I do not eat it very often now.

I like vegetable beef, too, but it's so expensive now! I usually buy the generic. I like to brown some sliced pork loin and put it in a covered casserole dish with half-diluted vegetable beef soup and cook it for a couple hours. It comes out tasty and tender! I usually add extra potatoes and carrots, too.

Hello there dragon. well seriously i love any chicken soup recently i got a packet of chicken sweet corn and chicken plain soup and i am just waiting to try them i might try them tomorrow mostly , but here many time i dont find real chicken in packed soups because they put mushrooms or soya chunks than chicken into it, which makes the taste go bad. I better get learned how to cook a chicken soup at home sometimes.

Chicken soup isn't hard to make, especially in a crock pot (slow cooker). If you don't have a slow cooker, roast a chicken in the oven or boil it in a pot. Get rid of the skin and cup up some chicken for your soup. Put the pot of water in the fridge so that you can remove the fat when it cools. After you remove the fat, put your chicken pieces in with some diced carrots, potatoes or anything else you like in your chicken soup then cook it on low for a few hours. It's better than the canned stuff!
