Campbell's newest soup is Double Noodle - lotsa noodles in chicken broth. The 11-ounce can retails for 87 cents.
Don Russell (married, five children at home, ages 14-4): "This is basically chicken noodle soup with a lot more noodles than traditional noodle soup. I liked the soup because I think there aren't enough noodles in most chicken noodle soups. Both adults and children alike should enjoy this new soup. If you mix the contents of the can with some ground meat, you have an instant casserole that is quick and easy."Edyth Jensen (married, two children and two grandchildren at home): "The grandchildren liked this because of the extra noodles. It does have a good chicken flavor, and if you like lots of noodles you will enjoy this soup."
Nihla Lake (married, four children at home): "We didn't like this, thought the noodles were kind of mushy. The soup didn't have a real good chicken flavor, more like some chicken walked through it. I wouldn't ever buy it again."
Linda C. Tingey (single mother, four teenage boys at home): "My 17-year-old son Ryan took the double noodle soup on a camping trip. He said he put it directly on the coals and it was delicious. He especially liked the extra noodles and so did his buddy D.J."
Rich Firmage (married, three children, oldest 8 years old): "I grew up eating chicken noodle soup and I still eat it. This tastes just like chicken noodle except it has small pieces of carrots and doesn't have any small pieces of chicken. It does have a lot of noodles, which is good. I liked it. I'm still trying to decide if I like more noodles or more broth."
Bill Allred (single): "The only really bad thing I ever have to say about Campbell's soups is that they're too salty. This one is no exception: 700 milligrams of sodium per serving. Why do they do that? Most of us have salt shakers at home, and we actually know how to use them. As for the `double noodle' part of the recipe . . . there are lots of noodles. They taste pretty good and they give the soup some added body.
Campbell's says this soup has `noodle fun for everyone.' I did find myself taking the noodles out of the bowl and using them to make little pictures. Fun!!!"
Conclusion: We think we can recommend this soup to noodle lovers - three of our testers liked it unreservedly. But there were some quibbles about the flavor, lack of chicken and Campbell's heavy hand with the salt shaker.
