This would have totally been me. (If I were a boy and alive in 1960.)

The print and television advertisements (see illustrations) for Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup of course play upon its associations with home, family and hearth, but unlike other media campaigns for food, the sentiments surrounding the soup are, I think, more sincere reflections of real experiences as opposed to contrived "reality."

So, happy birthday, Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup. A can is sitting in my larder as we speak, ready to be supped by yours truly next time I want some liquid comfort with a side of sweet reminiscence.
