Spoonful of Comfort Chicken Noodle Soup and all the other goodies that come with it, I have enjoyed myself immensely! The only different thing we did this time was change the cookies from the Oatmeal Raisin to the Chocolate Chip in honor of Valentine's Day.
Otherwise, I would have opted for the Oatmeal Raisin again. Don't get me wrong, the Chocolate Chip were beyond awesome also, but the Oatmeal Raisin are in a class by themselves. My husband has never ever ate an Oatmeal Raisin cookie until he tried theirs and now he won't shut up about them! Or maybe it is old age setting in?
Doesn't matter because every last crumb is gone, every drop of soup has been consumed and every piece of those magnificent rolls has vanished! Just so you know, there are no preservatives or additives added to this soup and it does come frozen so you will need to let it unthaw in the fridge for about a day. The ingrediants in the soup are: Chicken stock, pulled all natural chicken, noodles, carrots, celery, onion, sage, parsley and sea salt. And of course their special brand of homemade comfort!
Do any of you know? Wanna spill the beans? They give you a bag that has 6 rolls in in and they are made from scratch. And they are pretty good sized ones at that! After eating a bowl of soup and one roll we have to wait a little while to eat a cookie to let it all settle down but gosh, it sure is worth it! I have never had a problem and doubt that you will either but it is nice to know that if you have any problems this is Spoonful of Comfort's guarantee:
We guarantee your complete satisfaction. If for any reason you are dissatisfied, please call and we will assist you with a prompt exchange, refund, or credit. Call us at 877-404-7678.
I sure do wish there was a way for them to make some awesome sweet tea to send with this package and boy, that would be the ultimate, don't you think? Well, I guess if you aren't from the South, it might not be, but down here, we pride ourselves on good Sweet Tea!
I know if you were reading my blog last year you read my About Us on how Spoonful of Comfort came about but it is such a powerful story that I like telling it again:
In October 2007, I received the phone call from my mother that she had been diagnosed with Lung Cancer.I don't think I told you in my other review but the reason I love this story so much and admire her so much is that my Daddy died of Lung Cancer also but in 2004. I too, lived in another town, same state, but still when you are working and live almost 2 hours away it is hard to fit all that into your schedule. I am relieved that my Dad did not suffer long. Within 5 weeks of his diagnosis he died on a Sunday afternoon right after eating some soup I had made for him. I had just turned around for a quick moment to answer his phone and when I turned back he was gone. It is amazing to me how fast things can happen. I am glad now that I was there when he left and it was hard on me but I treasure that last weekend more than anything.
I was shocked, scared and panicked. The hardest part about hearing the news, was that she lived in New Brunswick Canada and I lived in Florida. More difficult still, I had just returned the day before from a trip visiting her. With two young children in school, I couldn't just turn around and go back.
I was so upset and felt helpless being so far away. I needed to "Do Something". I looked into sending flowers or fruit, but nothing seemed appropriate. I wanted to show her how much I cared, and in some way comfort her. I immediately thought of chicken soup - it's what she (like many mothers) used to make to comfort me. And the idea for Spoonful of Comfort was born. Just six weeks later, I lost my mother.
During her final weeks she got lots of soup and other comforts from many of her 11 siblings and close friends. She never had the opportunity to try my soup.
However, in her honor, it is my goal to help others with sick loved ones. It is my promise to make and deliver a Spoonful of Comfort to your loved ones with as much care as if I were sending it to my own mother. They'll feel better and so will you. Whether you have an ailing mother, a child away at college with the flu, or a grandchild with an ear infection, Spoonful of Comfort can help you show that you care.
So, if you know of someone who needs their spirits lifted or they aren't feeling too well, go take them some soup, some cookies, whatever and spend a little time with them and you will always be so eternally grateful that you did! Oh, and by the way in memory of her mother they give back to the American Cancer Society. So, a portion of your proceeds when you buy a Soup Package goes to cancer research.
