I'm going to be honest with you: I've never eaten SpaghettiOs before in my life. And TBH, I always thought it was pretty random that Trader Joe's has its own knockoff version. But my dad basically grew up eating SpaghettiOs, and he raves about them, so I was excited to give this classic, nostalgic food a try.
My first impression upon opening the two cans of soup was ew. I'll preface this by saying I'm a soup addict, and I live and die by a can of Campbell's creamy tomato, but this stuff sort of grossed me out. It was thick and sweet smelling and saturated with soft little circular noodles. The Campbell's version was especially thick and dense, whereas the tomato soup in the Joe's O's was a bit looser and thinner.
