Chicken soup is the quintessential comfort food and can rejuvenate mind, body and spirit. It’s Grandma approved to cure what ails ya, a claim that is actually backed up by science. Chicken soup has been shown to reduce inflammation and boost the immune system. In fact, chicken soup contains an amino acid similar to a drug used to treat respiratory infections.

A Spoonful of Comfort is a new twist on the gourmet gift basket. It’s a comfort food delivery service specializing in soup. They ship their all-natural soups across the country to loved ones in need of a little comfort. They offer chicken noodle, tomato basil, and potato leek soups, which are shipped next day in 64 ounce jars that can feed 4-6 people.

Each gift basket contains the soup of your choice, six rolls, six cookies (chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, or sugar), a ladle, and a handwritten note card with your message. The soup is blast frozen and shipped in an insulated package with gel ice packs. It should be refrigerated when received and will last 2-3 days, or can be frozen for longer storage.

Founder Marti Wymer came up with the idea after her mother was diagnosed with cancer. She felt helpless and wanted to comfort her when she couldn’t be there in person. Marti remembered that her mother would make chicken soup for her when she needed a little TLC, and created A Spoonful of Comfort in her honor. She promises to make and deliver every order with as much care as if she were sending it to her own mother.

A portion of A Spoonful of Comfort’s sales go to The American Cancer Society, which aims to prevent cancer and help those who are suffering from it.
