Campbell's Soup

After completing his doctorate in Germany, John T. Dorrance declined prestigious academic posts to work in his uncle's canning factory—the Joseph Campbell Preserve Company—in Camden, New Jersey. In 1897, he began replicating in condensed form the soups he had enjoyed in Europe. By 1904, his soups dominated company sales. Still famous today for its soups, Campbell's is also known for its iconic cans, immortalized by Andy Warhol. One of his soup artworks sold for $11.8 million. What was its title? More...

Answer copy/pasted from article, highlight mine:
Quote:
The silkscreens themselves have become iconic pieces of pop art, with one in particular, Small Torn Campbell Soup Can (Pepper Pot) (1962), commanding a price of $11.8 million at auction in 2006.

"Throughout 2012, Campbell's contributed $500,000 to a $46 million dollar political campaign known as "The Coalition Against The Costly Food Labeling Proposition, sponsored by Farmers and Food Producers" [25] This organization was set up to oppose a citizen's initiative, known as Proposition 37, demanding mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically modified ingredients. As a result, there is a growing boycott of their products across North America.[26]"

As well they should be! Sick

I can't understand it. I have never liked canned soup. It is soo much nicer and tastier and more nutritious to make it yourself, and the variety is endless!

Some are really good and some are not so good and most have way to much salt. You would surmise that this company would wand to help their customers rather then kill them, wouldn't you think???

While brainwashing them that what they're eating is somehow healthy. I'm probably saving more lives with my guests' leftovers.

I didn't know Campbell's was part of GMO booster club. Not surprising. Soup is so fun to make I don't know why you would need it, in most cases. Most of what is eaten in the US is "food products," not real food.
