Giveaway ENDS TONIGHT: Spoonful of Comfort Soup Care Package $46 {4.14; US}

Head to Natural Parents Network to enter!

Spoonful of Comfort is offering NPN readers a giveaway of a care package containing 64 oz. of award winning, all-natural chicken noodle soup (serves 4-6) along with 6 made-from-scratch rolls and 6 oatmeal raisin cookies, a $46 value.

An excerpt from our NPN reviewer, Laura of Walden Mommy:
On a cool Thursday in March, I was feeling under the weather and the kids were bugging me for dinner. I hadn't taken out the meat and was considering throwing together peanut butter sandwiches when the doorbell rang. It was the FedEx man with a heavy package which contained . . . soup.

Not just any soup, but home-made, mailed directly to your door chicken noodle soup from Spoonful of Comfort. When Marti Wymer’s mother was diagnosed with lung cancer, she wanted to do something to help her mom. The idea of sending chicken soup, the quintessential comfort food, to loved ones in needs of some loving care, was born. Today, you can order her homemade chicken noodle soup, (along with optional rolls, cookies, socks and a "little pick me up") to be sent to someone you love who is sick, facing a medical crisis or just needs a little love. In memory of her mother, a portion of the proceeds from each sale will go to chairty.

The soup had large chunks of all white meat chicken and thick noodles. The broth was pale yellow and I could clearly make out the carrots, celery and onions, which were diced so fine that my 11-month-old could safely eat them. Everyone loved the noddles; they are thick, chewy and taste very much like fresh, homemade noodles. The chicken looked like it had been hand-shredded from a roast; it was definitely not processed chicken parts.

Our order also came with six white rolls. The rolls were wrapped in a plain plastic bag tied with a twisty-tie and, of course, the yellow ribbon. They are made with white flour and were light and fluffy, perfect for soaking up the broth and gentle on a "sore" tummy.  They broke apart easily so you could spread jam, jelly, butter or the comfort spread of your choice on them. My husband gobbled up two of these rolls before he ate the soup!

We also got a half dozen of homemade oatmeal raisin cookies. The cookies were sweet and light. They were pretty moist and broke apart easily to share. They would be a nice, light treat for someone who is sick and can’t tolerate “heavy” foods.

Overall, this is a great product that you can feel good about sending. The packaging is attractive, fun and can be personalized. A portion of the proceeds goes towards a reputable charity in memory of the person who inspired the business. The food is fresh and tasty, even if the size selection is limited. It's definitely a service I would use for friends and family!

These soup care packages would make a wonderful gift for a friend or loved one recovering from surgery or illness, getting used to a new baby, away from home, or unable to cook. It's like sending a family meal through the mail!
