I have had a couple different Campbell's Soup at Hand varieties over the years. At first, I thought it was a great idea. (I practically drink my tomato soup out of a mug anyways.) And so, I tried the tomato Soup at Hand was found it was easy to drink, as well. However, I didn't enjoy the other flavors with noodles, stars, etc. It seemed more difficult to drink those through the opening and they were even modified to make the noodles smaller, but it was just not the experience/taste I was expecting. Also, there is a noticeable smell from the insulated material in the cup when heated. Finally, the cup comes with a lid to sip your soup through, but what really bothers me is that this lid sits exposed on top of the cup of soup at the store and gets handled by all sorts of people before you take it home and put your mouth on it. It is just disgusting! So, I always wash mine before drinking out of it.
