NEW YORK -

Campbell Soup Co. said it will start offering K-cup soup packs that can be made with Green Mountain's popular single-serve coffee machines.

The soups will come with a K-cup pack of broth that is brewed over a packet of dry pasta and vegetables.

Campbell and Green Mountain said they'll launch three varieties next year, including Chicken Broth & Noodle.

"We expect this delicious Campbell's Fresh-Brewed Soup to provide consumers with a flavorful, convenient soup that fits their lives today," said Denise Morrison, Campbell's president and CEO.

Nutrition information wasn't immediately available, but the companies are calling the soup packs a "snack."

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. CEO Brian Kelley said in a release that the product marked a "first step" beyond beverages for the Keurig system.

"Campbell's is an iconic brand that shares our focus on harnessing innovation to delight consumers — making them an ideal partner as we take this first step beyond beverages for the Keurig system," Kelly said.

Morrison said the product represented a move into higher-growth areas for the company.
