Outdated etiquette mandates that soup never be slurped, rather, it should be lapped from a Fabergé egg or strained through a white glove into the gaping mouths of the peasantry far below. Drink a mouthful however you choose with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 toward chicken noodle soup packages and more from Grandma's Chicken Soup. Your Groupon can be used toward any gift package on the site but does not cover shipping and handling. Shipping starts at $13 for next-day arrival and increases depending on the destination's distance from Massachusetts. Free pick-up is also offered from its Woburn home base.
If laughter is the best medicine, then chuckling with a mouthful of soup is an unstoppable recipe for relief—plus it really does help treat bugs. Send a bowl of Grandma's soup, featured on the Food Network's Unwrapped, to under-the-weather offspring at a faraway college, a family member who needs some cheering up, or a grandma that thrives off competition. The most popular Just Soup package includes a half-gallon (four to six servings) of the savory elixir with the option to add noodles or matzo balls and a personalized message ($29.95). You can also incorporate a huggable teddy bear ($18) or an edible banana-walnut cake ($16) among many other add-ons. The soup is MSG-free and is a homemade mix of grade-A chicken, fresh carrots, celery, and onion simmered for hours until Grandma approves. Aside from the tasty soup, a lengthy list of other care-package possibilities is available.
