|This is not a wonton.|
I got a call from Lynnafred yesterday. She had just opened up a can of Campbell's Chicken Wonton Soup that she'd bought on impulse the other day.
"Dad, this soup is horrible. Why did you let me buy it?"
I only accept part of the blame for this, however. Although there are several Campbell's soups that we buy regularly, none of the chicken varieties are on our list because they're so nasty. Campbell's chicken broth is just horrible - it's heavy and artificial-tasting and the doughy noodles they throw in only makes it worse. It stands to reason that Chicken Wonton would be no better.
There were five small "wontons" in the can, each of them a thick pentagonal chunk of noodle with a tiny dab of meatlike stuff near the center. She ended up dividing the soup between the dogs who, predictably, enjoyed the hell out of it.
