    Just thought I'd pop in and make a suggestion for when you're after something for lunch at work. Campbell's Chunky Soup is wonderful!

    Just had Pea and Ham, very tasty.

    Anyone else?

    Been a fan of the Campbell's soups for a while, the old man used to work for them down in Melbourne. Cannot beat a good soup in Winter :cool:

    Try the bacon and potato! :thumbup: Mix it with some pasta and you've got a cheap imitation of cabonara!

    Also, Country Ladle pumpkin or ministrone is :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    sampled some of the butter chicken soup at the shops the other day.. i think it was campbells, but was more of a stew than a soup.

    tasted pretty good tho, and cheaper than my local indian place. just needed some rice :D

    Not a campbells fan, much prefer the "Harvest" soups, particularly curry flavour......damn they are chunky!! And packed with flavour.

    BTW: DJ-Studd, how are you going with the VB3 upgrade on the OCAU forum monitor? :lol:

    Haven't tried any of these commercial chunky soups , the only chunky soups i've had have been home made. Hmm i'm gonna have to try them , and get back into porridge this winter.

    Yea i love all the "chunky" type soups around these days. My b/f loves the rogan josh and butter chicken ones with a shitload of rice :lol: Then he complains to me about how hes going to explode.... :p

    As a fan of indian food, I struggled to eat the Rogan Josh soup... it was nasty, I guess rice would've helped pad it out to make it not so rich, but the flavours were overpowering (in a bad way) and the texture wasn't pleasant either.
    The others though, pretty good. Get some crusty fresh bread and it's a good winter meal :thumbup:

    Campbell's Chunky is awesome. As a uni student, I always have some in the cupboard for "emergency rations" when I'm too busy to cook!

    I'm a big fan of the Chunky Butter Chicken and half a pack of the microwave Indian rice (can't recall the brand sorry) for lunch most days. All I need is to bring in some narn and garlic :)
