It’s Really Happening: K-Cup Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup Exists


Campbell Soup is getting into the K-Cup game and rolling out single-serve soup pods that can be made with Green Mountain’s Keurig machines. This new “fresh-brewed soup” (ahem) includes a K-Cup of seasoned  chicken broth and a separate packet of noodle and vegetable mix.

With big-name companies like Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts scrambling to cash in on the Keurig trend with their own coffee pods, it was only a matter of time before they made this profitable. Sorry, Cup Noodles, Campbell beat you to it.

According to the LA Times, 46 percent of dollars going toward the purchase of coffee or espresso makers went to single-serve machines. Campbell and Green Mountain expect to launch three varieties of the K-Cup soup, including Homestyle Chicken Broth & Noodle, in 2014.

Next up: French-pressed chicken soup? How about steeped clam chowder? Before you groan, just know we called it first.

“Tacos” Flavored Cup Noodles Exists

Looks like ramen remains a hot button viral-worthy food stuff as of late, particularly this decently appetizing look at Cup Noodles brand’s apparent “Tacos” flavor available in Japan.

The flavor utilizes tomato soup to help give a sense of the meat flavors, and there’s a described aroma of tortillas and spices, and a compilation of Daisuminchi, cabbage, tomato, cheddar cheese and onion throughout.

Tacos-flavored instant ramen? Damn. The closest I had to this in college was the half a bottle of Tapatio I was pouring into each batch of noodles. Too bad it seems to be just in Japan right now.
