Outdated etiquette mandates that soup never be slurped; rather, it should be lapped from a Fabergé egg or strained through a white glove into the gaping mouths of the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 $29.50 toward chicken-noodle-soup packages and more from Grandma's Chicken Soup. Groupons cannot be applied toward shipping and handling. Shipping starts at $13 for next-day arrival and increases depending on the destination's distance from the Woburn, Massachusetts, home base.
The chicken soup from Grandma's, featured on the Food Network's Unwrapped, makes a perfect mailable gift 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 and 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.
