Campbell Soup Company V Tomato soup and toasted cheese

I haven’t had a bowl of tinned tomato soup in years and this brings me back to the days when a can of Campbell’s tomato soup, especially with that very classy gold badge, was one of the most exotic things ever for a boy more accustomed to home-made broth cooked on the stove for half the day. In fact, had I been living in America, I would most definitely have made my mother buy those cans of Campbell’s soup (the stipulation was two different kinds of vegetable) and sent it in with a dollar – in return for one of these Souper dresses.
