"Very moist and tasty. One family member, who ordinarily does not like box cakes, had a second helping and did not know tomato soup was an ingredient."

"I make a spice cake that uses tomato soup! It is a little differnt from this one but it sounds like it would be just as delicious. Don't let the sound of tomato soup in it turn you away. It adds a nice texture and flavor."
