Chicken Soup for the Chicken's Soul is the least sold title in the series because chickens are stoic creatures adept at illegally downloading eBooks. Take comfort in the comforts only these flavorful file-sharers can give with today's Groupon from Spoonful of Comfort: for $35, you get the chicken-soup comfort package (a $74.93 total value).
When founder Marti Wymer's mother called to tell her that she'd fallen ill, Marti vowed to find a way to soothe her spirits from more than 2,000 miles away. Marti was inspired to comfort her mother the way her mother—when Marti was sick—had comforted her as a child: with chicken soup. Spoonful of Comfort continues the tradition by helping care-bearers send long-distance love with gourmet-soup care packages. The soup is derived from an old-fashioned, feel-good recipe, and is made to order in small batches. All-natural ingredients such as free-range chicken and organic vegetables ensure savory flavor, and infuse the soup with spirit-soothing superpowers. In addition to the farm-style 64-ounce Mason jar of chicken soup (a $34 value), the comfort package includes six made-from-scratch rolls ($6), six oatmeal-raisin cookies ($6), an inspirational coin ($4.99), extra gift cards to pay it forward, a pair of spa socks ($9.99), and shipping ($13.95). Upon opening the package, faraway friends and newfound pen pals will be greeted with a handwritten note featuring your own comforting message or tail-wagging limerick.
Spoonful of Comfort's country cure-all can impress broth buffs, cheer up remote woebegones, and force the unconditional surrender of cold- and flu-bug tank battalions. Today, Spoonful of Comfort works with local, national, and international charities and contributes a portion of every sale to the American Cancer Society.
