Now, before everyone berates me over the fact that this product is still sold, allow me to inform you of some interesting "facts". I have been eating this brand of Lentil Soup for, well I guess about 20 years, and have always enjoyed it. A few week ago my wife bought a few cans of it, and my eyes were immediately violated by the new packaging they had slapped on the can. Worse yet, when the bowl of soup was placed before me, I saw, to my horror, that the soup was a totally different color. It was a reddish-brown! The Progresso Lentil Soup I know (and love) was always a muted gray. And then I tasted it. Words cannot describe my the shock my taste buds endured when an alien flavor assaulted my mouth.
I don't know what they have done to my beloved soup, but things have changed, they will never be the same again. Why did they tamper with perfection?!?
