According to Campbell's, Camden, NJ, Headquarter's Customer Service Department, I was told that sales of Campbell's Pepper Pot Soup have been discontinued.

In the New England region, I first noticed Campbell's Pepper Pot Soup disappearing from grocery store shelves during the Summer of 2010.

I soon learned that, at a 2010 annual Campbell's USA business, sales planning meeting, it was decided to discontinue distributing those Campbell's Soups, that require higher priced ingredients, thus allowing for higher profit for Campbell's U.S. division.

Instead, for the U.S. market, it was decided to introduce more cheaply produced, U.S. manufactured children's theme soups, (such as Dora the Explorer), which utilize the same, cheap chicken soup base as many of their other soups, so Campbell's could grow profits at a rapid rate, well into the future.

So, you see, Maximum Profit, not popularity, is the actual reason why Pepper Pot Soup, among other products, (such as Scotch Broth Soup), have been discontinued...Profit rules supreme at Campbell's these days. Shame on Campbell's for ruining and discontinuing a once great and complete line of products.

But, in the case of the other "hard to find" Campbell's soup, "Scotch Broth," Canadians can still buy and enjoy Campbell's Scotch Broth because, although no longer available in the USA, Campbell's Scotch Broth is still manufactured and sold in Canada, which you can see when visiting their Canadian website by googling: "campbellsoup.ca"

Why aren't Americans worthy of Campbell's better quality soups, such as Pepper Pot and Scotch Broth?

I've been hunting for Pepper Pot soup everywhere for a long time now. I managed to buy the last 6 cans left in my store and I'm hoarding them for very special occasions. I have not, however, purchased any more Campbell's soup since Pepper Pot disappeared. I wrote to Campbell's and asked them where Pepper Pot went. They ignored me; I got no reply. So I wrote to them again tonight. Here's what I said:

"Since you have discontinued Pepper Pot Soup, what are you planning to do as a thank you gesture to those of us who ate and loved it all our lives? It was my mother's favorite, and my grandmother's as well. My two nices also miss it. Will you be publishing a version of your Pepper Pot recipe for us to use at home? Those of us who have been faithful Campbell's soup buyers all our lives? Or maybe you could make up a special batch once a year for the Faithful? I have 6 cans left that I'm hoarding for special occasions like Christmas. They're sitting on my shelf, along with the last can of Campbell's soup I ever bought, Celery, a while back. I'll be eagerly waiting for your announcement of your customer appreciation/good will Thank-You gesture. And I'll post on Amazon.com to let others know to watch for your slightly belated announcement. Thank you, Campbell's Soup. I'd like to come back, but without a concession to us Pepper Pot devotees, that can of Cream of Celery Soup is the last I'll be buying."

I don't know if they'll pay any attention. I certainly am going to miss their Classic Tomato soup (with a sprinkle of dill) with my grilled cheese. And that savory Chicken Gumbo with the rice and okra on a cold night. Oh, and the New England Clam Chowder - with a sprinkle of cracked pepper on those wonderful little potato cubes. Sigh. But, hey, I can cook myself, and I'll survive. I think I'll get a poster of Andy Warhol's Pepper Pot can art to hang in my kitchen; it will help me remember how much I used to love Campbell's soup.

We should flood campbell's head quarters with our shock that Pepper Pot and Scotch Broth have ceased to exist.Maybe a public issue would take some effect

I grew up eating this soup and it is delicious! I am so excited to see it on Amazon because the last place I bought it was in Puerto Rico! The taste is very distinct. You really don't notice the tripe flavor, but sometimes the way the tiny little pieces look might distract you. Since it's a Campbells soup, everything is fairly minced up, but the vegetables are tasty. The broth is truly unique. There is a hint of the bell pepper, black pepper and oregano that season it, but it's much more complex. I'd love the recipe, but would probably make it with oxtails instead of tripe. Definitely delicious!

I am upset about the Pepper Pot being discontinued but double whammy just finding out about the Scotch Broth - the Oyster Soup will be next - the shelf will be left with kiddie soups....Bring these soups back!

I have loved campbell's Pepper Pot soup for as long as I can recall.. If they have truly discontinued production it is a great loss to all of us who love it and those who have never had the oppertunity to taste it. If it costs more to produce, then raise the price don't just stop production. I think most of us would be willing to pay more, rather than face never being able to enjoy it again... I may never forgive Campbells if they do not reconsider.

Well close one eye on the beef tripe ingredient- it's not as scary as it sounds- this soup is really delicious. Great taste, good balance. Sad to say these are not sold in a lot of geographic areas. Great for a cold day or with boiled rice. One note to make is the salt content is a bit high- if you eat one can of this soup you will have satisfied your daily salt allowance. Once recent discovery: throw shrimp, scallops and fish slices in this soup to make a superb seafood brew.

My family has eaten pepper pot soup for over 55 years, why discontinue something so good? I have searched everywhere, I need the recipe if they aren't going to make it anymore. The rest of their soup is tasteless and boring.

Pepper Pot Soup was my favorite! In fact I still have the last can I ever bought (unopened). The expiration date on the bottom is Sept. 13, 2009. I keep it because Sept. 13 is my birth date. I was born in 1934 so I ate Pepper Pot for many years. Shame on Campbell's for discontinuing a soup so many people loved.
