Have you every just felt really bad, like with the flu, stomach bug or other sickness and didn’t have the energy or want to, to make dinner for your family, or maybe you’ve went through a really tough time loosing a friend or family member and just wanted some comfort food to make things a little easier at home? Well, yes I know I’ve been all the above and then there are times I just want to send a special gift to a friend or family member just because and I’m sure you all have too right?! I was recently introduced to an awesome company called Spoonful of Comfort that provides awesome gift baskets for just those occasions!
About Spoonful of Comfort (Taken From Website):
The story of Spoonful of Comfort:
In October 2007, I received the phone call from my mother that she had been diagnosed with Lung Cancer.
I was shocked, scared and panicked. The hardest part about hearing the news, was that she lived in New Brunswick Canada and I lived in Florida. More difficult still, I had just returned the day before from a trip visiting her. With two young children in school, I couldn't just turn around and go back.
I was so upset and felt helpless being so far away. I needed to "Do Something". I looked into sending flowers or fruit, but nothing seemed appropriate. I wanted to show her how much I cared, and in some way comfort her.
I immediately thought of Chicken soup - it's what she (like many mothers) used to make to comfort me. And the idea for Spoonful of Comfort was born.
Just six weeks later, I lost my mother.
During her final weeks she got lots of soup and other comforts from many of her 11 siblings and close friends. She never had the opportunity to try "my" soup. However, in her honor, it is my goal to help others with sick loved ones. Whether you have an ailing mother, a child away at college with the flu, or a grandchild with an ear infection, Spoonful of Comfort can help you show that you care.
It is my promise to make and deliver a Spoonful of Comfort to your loved ones with as much care as if I were sending it to my own mother. They'll feel better and so will you.
I was sent an awesome package from Spoonful of Comfort to review and really it couldn’t have arrived at a better time! It came in the middle of a super busy week for my husband and I, and we didn’t have enough time at home to prepare a good meal for our family before he was going to work again or I was going to take care of my grandmother while my mother when to a school basketball game!
Our package arrived very quickly and was packaged super well and very secure so none of the products would get damaged during shipping and the soup itself was still cold and had ice still in the jar when it arrived so I have to give them 5 stars just for the method of shipping they have chosen! We decided pretty quickly that we wanted to give the soup a try pretty quickly after it arrived and I invited my dad up to eat with us since my mom was gone to a game! First off let me just say this jar of soup is HUGE! I had no doubt that it was going to be more than enough to feed my little man, my hubby, my dad and myself with no problems and the preparation of the soup too little time just pour it in the pan and let it warm up and then you have a delicious pot of old fashioned Chicken noodle soup!
Ok, so I thought that we would have left overs because the jar was so big but pretty quickly after it was warmed up it was completely gone! I’m telling you this soup is delicious, I’ve eaten chicken noodle soup many different ways but none of them have been as wonderful as the soup from Spoonful of Comfort! I really love the big thick noodles and chunks of chicken in this soup, its so good and so feeling! Along with the jar of soup we were sent six homemade rolls and six homemade oatmeal/raisin cookies and they didn’t last long at all! Everything in the package was simply delicious and I can really see why receiving a gift basket like this would brighten anyone’s day even if it’s just a little!
We all truly enjoyed the soup, rolls and cookies we were sent from Spoonful of Comfort, and I can guarantee that if I was under the weather or if I was going through a hard time getting a basket filled with these easy and delicious goodies would make me feel a little better no matter what’s buggin me! I’m also thinking that a big ol’ jar of soup from Spoonful of Comfort would be amazing for someone with a sore throat or someone who has just had their tonsils taken out!
Ok, so I’ve mentioned all the reasons that someone would like to receive a basket of goodies from Spoonful of Comfort but what about giving one of these delicious gift baskets for Christmas???? I know several of the people on my holiday shopping list that would be thrilled to unwrap all of these goodies, I just know that the delicious soup would be even more amazing on a cold, snowy winter night!
