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.

    I remember those old vending machines that would dispense a single cup of watery, luke-warm chicken broth.

    I don’t get it. Is it so difficult to open up a packet and put it in hot water? (You can even get insta-hot water from the machine if you want to). The same with making tea/chocolate/cider in a keurig. It’s just more plastic for the landfill.

      I agree 100%! Also cup of noodles & a microwave work fine as well.
