Campbell’s Soup Debuts First Can Redesign in 50 Years

Campbell’s Soup recently announced a brand new redesign of their iconic can — the first in the last 50 years. The update will feature a few subtle changes, though with hopes to “modernize” the look of the label.

The new cans will feature a more contemporary look, with modernized stylings in the way of a new font that’s based on founder Joseph Campbell’s signature. In a fun little fact, Campbell’s noted the new label’s “hidden elements,” which employ another script-styled “C” within the fleur de lis designs, and slightly tilted “O” (in the word “soup”) to acknowledge past designs.

To help promote the new can redesign, Campbell’s also linked up with New York artist Sophia Chang to create the brand’s first-ever non-fungible tokens (NFT) to raise money for Feeding America. The NFTs went for sale earlier this week, though another animated NFT is currently still up for auction through August 6.

Introducing The First Ever REESE’S PUFFS Musical Cereal Box

Giving a whole new meaning to “playing” with your food, REESE’S PUFFS is turning its cereal boxes into special edition, first-ever series of music boxes. Dubbed the RP-FX and RP-PRO, these boxes can actually create real music, and REESE’S is encouraging fans to share their beats and creations to an accompanying app.

Here’s the details on each REESE’S PUFFS music box:

RP-FX
– Comes in three limited-edition boxes: Crunchy Drum Machine, Creamy Lead Synth, and Chocolatey Bass Syth.
– The music comes to life when fans add the REESE’S PUFFS on the back of the box and use an accompanying app on PuffsFX.com to create their beats.
– RP-FX boxes use a first-of-its-kind augmented reality technology to detect where the PUFFS have been placed and make unique music tracks based off their placement.
– Fans can get all three boxes to create different layers to the tracks.
– RP-FX boxes are available now at grocery stores nationwide.

RP-PRO
– The RP-PRO is an ultra-exclusive synthesizer, designed to look like a box of REESE’S PUFFS cereal but with all the music samples, audio effects, functions and power you’d expect from the most serious piece of music equipment. 
– It features custom REESE’S cup dials, custom-molded REESE’S PUFFS buttons along the bottom, chocolatey drum pads, a built-in sampler and a dome visualizer with menu. Plus a secret inside compartment to fit a small bag of REESE’S PUFFS cereal.
– REESE’S PUFFS will be sending the RP-PRO to some of the top music artists and hit-makers around the country, as well as giving away a few to a couple lucky fans.

  • Cinnalicious
  • Maui Heat

In addition, the kit also comes with an extra Fancy Butter sachet to test the optimal time on your microwave to ensure no burnt popcorn and a custom BPA-free microwave popper that doubles as a collapsable serving bowl.

This Opopop Discovery Kit is pretty much a starter pack to their innovative popcorn and can be purchased for $40 here.

Crafty Counter Gears Up For Launch of Wundereggs, Billed as the First Plant-Based RTE Boiled Eggs

While the niche market of plant-based eggs already has scrambled egg applications covered via an assortment of brands, Crafty Corner will soon be entering the space with Wundereggs, a product that’s billed as the first plant-based ready to eat (RTE) boiled eggs, according to FoodNavigator-USA.

The Wundereggs are gluten free, soy free, grain free, and dairy free, and will be sold in packs of two plant-based boiled eggs. These ‘eggs’ are treated with high pressure processing (HPP), which give them a shelf life of 90-120 days. As for what they’re made up of, the egg white contains nuts and agar, while the yolk uses nuts, turmeric, and black salt.

Plant-based brand Crafty Counter, best-known for its frozen lentil- and bean-based bites – has developed these industry first ready-to-eat plant-based boiled eggs, which it hopes to launch late this year or early next year.
