How Bad Can It Be?

I think a conservative estimate is that one night a week we eat soup and sandwiches for dinner and if someone has not made some sort of homemade soup, our 'go to' soup is this one:

Christian and I both share a love for Campbell's Tomato Soup. For Christian it makes him nostalgic for cold, dark Massachusetts nights after hockey practice and for me it is reminds me of early sunsets, Sunday suppers and blts.

Two years ago I read the list of ingredients in Campbell's Tomato Soup and I almost cried when I discovered in had high fructose corn syrup in it. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised, what doesn't contain it? For the past two years we have been on a mission to find a suitable replacement and it has been to no avail. We have tried every commercial brand out there and even some of the homemade versions at Whole Foods and other stores and none of them hold a candle to the deliciousness of Campbell's. I guess the fact of the matter is that in some cases high fructose corn syrup is the magic ingredient and I suppose we are just going to have to accept it because I don't think we will ever be willing to give it up. I think there is only one reason why it is so "mmm, mmm good."

Due to reading this blog, tonights dinner was "Tomato Soup". Also we have bought the new boxed ts and it does not taste as good as the canned soup and of course I believe Tony said there was very little if any at all in the boxed soup...........
How many people had Tomato Soup this week???
