Spoonful of Comfort, began with the desire to send a gift to a loved one to brighten their day. The owner's mother was diagnosed with cancer. Living several states away, she wanted to send a gift but flowers just didn't fit the bill. She came up with a great idea to send a care package of chicken soup to provide a spoonful of comfort!
Spoonful of Comfort allows you to customize your gift with many options. You can include cookies, rolls, comfort socks, blankets, baby bibs, and pocket tokens. Each package includes a hand written note containing your heartfelt message to the gift recipient. A portion of all sales supports a memorial fund for cancer research, through The American Cancer Society. Double bonus in my book, a gift that keeps on giving!
I was sent a package containing a family sized chicken soup, 6 rolls, and 6 oatmeal raisin cookies to sample. I loved the bright and cheery yellow polka dot ribbon used around the top of the soup jar and to seal the packages of cookies and rolls. The soup comes in a glass jar which I will reuse to hold pasta or rice in my pantry. It might seem small but I love when a company uses glass over plastic for packaging. The glass jar eases my worries of chemicals leaching into my food. The soup is made with "whole" ingredients only and contains NO preservatives! The jar of soup contains 64 oz(4lbs). The contents of the package enabled me to make a quick meal for my family. I simply heated the soup on the stove, warmed the rolls in the oven, and cookies for dessert.
One package, fed my whole family of 6, with a little bit of soup left over. As for the taste, the chicken noodle soup surpassed my expectations. Honestly, I could have passed it off to my family, that I made it myself. The appearance reminded me of soup my Gram(grandma) would make, when I was little. It contains big pieces of chicken, chunks of carrots and celery. I loved the flavor of the broth. Just a pure chicken flavor not overly salty! Overall the food was delicious, perfect to send for any occasion especially when you just want to give someone a hug but can't due to the distance between you. Featured on The Today Show as "The Ultimate Chicken Soup" and also in All You Magazine ~ Spoonful of Comfort is true to it's name!
