Am I the only one who loves to look back at old advertisements and giggle at the trends of each era? I just love looking through the archives of old ads and product labels to see the evolution of the printed word and covers.

We love soup around here and this month, in addition to being National Soup Month, we’re also celebrating with Campbell’s as their “Chicken with Noodles,” now Chicken Noodle Soup celebrates its 80th birthday!

Fun Slurpy Fact: Campbell’s® Condensed Chicken Noodle soup has come a long way. Introduced in 1934, it was originally called “Chicken with Noodles” and enjoyed only moderate success. Later that same year, an innocent misstatement on a popular radio program caused sales to sky-rocket. One of the famous on-air personalities misread his copy and accidentally called the product “Chicken Noodle” soup. Suddenly, Campbell started receiving large orders for their “new” product. The soup was formally renamed “Chicken Noodle” after the erroneous turn of phrase caused high demand for the soup.

If you’re looking to try a new soup recipe this month, you’ll find plenty of slurp-ilicious soup recipes on the Wisest Kid website!

Now, there’s one way to get our boys to put down the devices and controllers and get to the dinner table fast…genius! Now, if only they had a Minecraft block-like noodle too. ;)

I’m loving Italian Wedding Soup – Barefoot Contessa Recipe. But if I reach for canned, and I do that too; it’s Progresso for the Gluten Free soups they have. Unfortunately not one Campbell’s condensed is marked as gluten free :(
