Did you grow up eating this soup from a package? We didn't, at least not that I recall. We grew up on that other kind - the condensed soup. But I did have this occasionally - at a friend's house, perhaps? Here's an ad from 1958:
And another ad from '58, this one for just their Onion Soup. The Dip - now THAT I remember:
Yes, there are other uses for the soup mix, too. From 1956:
And 1966 - California Dip again; hey - it was VERY popular!
And you could use it for barbecues, also (from 1967):
And the meatloaf again, from 1969:
And , here is the way the package looks "Now":
Let's move on to Chicken Soup, shall we? This is the one I remember having. I like the way the package looks in this ad from 1959:
Another ad, from 1961 this time:
In 1967 it still had the red gingham::
And here is how the "Noodle Soup" package looks "Now":
The only very distinct memory I have of eating Lipton Chicken Noodle Soup was when we were staying with our friends the Headley's at a house in Lake Tahoe, I believe it was 1969 or 1970. It must have been during Christmas vacation. The bigger girls had gone skiing, and I was "home" with Lisa, their youngest girl (I think she had a bad cold or something), and mom Betty. Betty fixed us this soup for lunch with sandwiches, and there was something about that soup that day with all of the snow outside that made it seem very special. She also made me this red crocheted beret while we were there. I have kept it all these years, and I treasure it because Betty gave it to me. I dressed it up with a flower from Twyla:
That's my Lipton soup memory.
