"M'm! M'm! Good!" There's nothing like a nice bowl of hot soup on a freezing cold New Jersey day!

Growing up for me it was Campbell's tomato with a grilled cheese or Progresso Minestrone, which was made in Vineland. Campbell's which originated the slogan "M'm! M'm! Good!" is made in Camden.

But if you're looking for some great New Jersey soup, you don't need to go to a factory, especially since Progresso moved theirs to Hannibal, Missouri. There are some great homemade soups made right here at these eating establishments.

Check them out in time for the "Souper Bowl". See what I did there?
