Campbell's Select Harvest Light Maryland Style Crab Soup Review

Campbell's Select Harvest Light Maryland Style Crab SoupMaryland is well known for its crab culture - mean, you folks love you some crab! And so do I. There is a distinctive flavor and I commend Campbell's for trying their hand at a commercially made crab soup - and to name it "Maryland Style" - well, it better be damned good and I was fired up to try it.

While warming up my can of Campbell's Select Harvest Light Maryland Style Crab Soup, the smell of crab meat wafted through the air which made my tummy gurgle with anticipation. It might have been a little too hot when I put that first spoonful in my mouth - but I didn't care. The tomato soup base is chunky with potatoes, carrots, corn, and more and has a very light kick of pepper to spice things up. The crab tasted like ... crab - which is a good thing as it didn't taste like over-processed mush. But, although this soup looked and tasted great, I wish there had been larger pieces of crab rather than the thin strings that I saw.

A 1 cup serving of Campbell's Select Harvest Light Maryland Style Crab Soup provides 80 calories, 1% of the daily value for total fat, 480 milligrams of sodium (20% DV), plus 2 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugars and 3 grams of protein. There are also 30% DV vitamin A and 10% DV vitamin C.

I paid $2.00 for an 18.6 ounce can of this soup. Considering the price, I was very satisfied with the quality of the soup - I am adding this as one of my favorite varieties of Campbell's Select harvest Light Soup. Even though there are technically 2 servings in a can, I had the whole can for lunch, which provides a lot of sodium, but draining part of the liquid can reduce the sodium even more. I love chunky soup, and this one certainly delivers.
