HAPPY SOUP? never heard of it?! unless you mean some of the drugs they had in the 70's-then ive heard of it.

If you remember, if you pulled the paper label off the can, on the back of the label were all kinds of puzzles and games for kids. And the soup was very good too!

The soup had Disney shapes in the chicken soup. I can't remember who made it. It was good soup, better than Campbell's

I remember Happy Soup! I became a member of "The Happy Soup club"! I think we had to send in labels (I know I still have the certificate of membership some where!).

I remember the Happy Soup very well. I was a member of the happy soup club and from what I remember my mom had sent in something in the area of .50 cents! I believe it was in the mid sixties.

I remember getting a pair of red plastic "walkie-talkies" - connected by a string (think cans and a string telephone) from the Happy Soup Club. And it had some sort of dial on it that you could use to write a coded message.

We've been cleaning out my parents' house and in the process came across my brother's and my Happy Soup Club stuff. We have the walkie talkies, the message decoder, some yellow paper that I think allowed you to write on invisibly, member certificates, etc. I had forgotten all about the club. Finding this stuff brought back a lot of memories. As soo as I got home I googled Happy Soup Club and found this site. Thanks for sharing your memories. P.S. The cancelled envelope is dated July 22,1968.

I remember the soup it was Campbell's happy soup and the commercials were more like a cartoon .I was in the club also . my favorite was the cream of chicken. It came in a turquoise colored can . I wish I could see the label again it would bring back memories.

It was actually made by Heinz. I was in the club, and everyone though I had imagined the whole thing.
