Soup de Jour

By mark-slade December 19, 2011

I’m having so much fun finding out some wild and crazy things about our beloved state.

So, how about this:

Campbell Soup is headquartered in Trenton NJ (they supposedly picked their brand logo colors from Cornell University).

But here is the rub as It is apparently illegal in NJ to slurp your soup in any public eating establishment. While Slurping your soup is considered bad manners in America, its actually the exact opposite in Japan and China–where it indicates “approval” and “appreciation.”

Does this mean that Campbell soup will exit our beloved state and cross the Pacific to a friendlier slurping climate?
