I'm no meticulous price watcher...
So tell me, am I off-base in complaining about Progresso Soup now costing $2.50 a can?
For some reason, I have $1.69 as the price for that in my head. It's SOUP for crying out loud!
And it only serves one person; and it's loaded with unhealthy salt ("sodium"); etc.
Furthermore, the *Light* flavors are now $3.00 in my neighborhood.
Maybe I have to get into the slightly flavored broth business?
My favorite is their Italian Style Wedding.
I've always liked it. For me, there's nothing like inhaling those little meatballs with the escarole and the pasta.
Screw Progresso! I'm making chicken stock at this very moment. And I'm googling Italian wedding soup recipes. This week I make my inaugural pot.
And check out Campbell's with their better-than-expected earnings:
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Campbell Soup Co (CPB.N) reported a higher-than-expected quarterly profit on Monday, helped by price increases and easing costs for ingredients including grains that offset a drop in sales.
Laying people off, not passing on commodity price declines, etc.
They're gouging us!
I say break up Big Soup.
