Soup Delivery – Soup Gifts For Cold Weather

Posted: November 19, 2008
by: T.Alexander

Cold weather is here and soup time is upon us. Soup Gifts are a great way to show your love, especially this time of year. Each of our Soup Delivery offerings include six individually portioned servings of Gourmet Soups in spill proof containers, six mini baguettes and six bake-your-own gourmet cookies. Cookie flavors are Amaretto, Cappuccino, Double Chocolate Caramel and Macadamia Nut & White Chocolate. Delicious!


We have found that our Gourmet Soup Gifts make excellent Food Gifts for the seniors in our lives. Just recently we introduced a Home Style Gourmet Soup Gift. We asked ourselves, how popular can chicken noodle and butternut squash soup be? To our surprise this Soup Gift has been a hit – sometimes you can’t beat good home style cookin’.  A Gourmet Soup Gift can be much appreciated as a “get well gift.” All our Soup Delivered configurations are delivered in complimentary gift packaging and set the stage for the gourmet experience.


One of our most popular holiday offerings is the Soup of the Month program. Our Soup of the Month Club allows your gift recipient to receive a soup configuration from our Parisian, Tuscan, Cajun, Fusion or Americana menus each month for 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. We never expire our certificates and skipping a month is allowed. Soup of the Month Clubs have become quite popular and we believe we have the best in terms of quality and taste.






Eggology - More than Egg Whites

When my social media expert friend Toby Bloomberg suggested I join Twitter, I thought she might be making a joke. But I listened to the Diva, reviewed her Twitter network, and began to see the twitter-light. GourmetStation is now tweeting. It’s been great fun making daily micro posts, but what I have enjoyed most is the network…the people & the connections. My network is predominately food oriented so there are lots of yummy hot topics. More importantly, I’m being introduced to new products that I can share with you.  So here goes…my first new discovery – Eggology!

Brad Halpern is the passion behind Eggology – it’s fairly simple…recognition of egg whites as a pure protein food then use egg whites to create delicious food products. The products were initially recognized by body builders and those with a passion for fitness (Brad is a triathlon racer). Then here come the boomers seeking a healthier lifestyle and a larger market was created.

Egg products at the retail level contain chemicals, coloring, and gums and Brad wanted a pure product. So he developed packaging in easy-to-handle clear plastic jars that can be sterilized without additives. Brad is also an innovator in shipping the egg products with a proprietary system that allows for safe, convenient home delivery. As if that was not enough, Brad went on to develop organic egg whites and now his products are sold in 4,000 specialty food stores nationwide.

Below are a few products from the Eggology website that appealed to me. Pardon the rush, but I’m heading down to my local market to see if I can purchase some Cool Cravings today!
