Holiday Gift Guide: Spoonful Of Comfort Review and GIVEAWAY!

Oh, you guys. This is a good one. 

You guys know that Mama is a sucker for a story, and a sucker for food. Deadly combination. 

This company has stolen my heart. And wait until you hear what you they do. 

They deliver homemade chicken soup. I know, right? What a freakin' brilliant idea.  

Read the story about how Spoonful of Comfort was born: 





"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."



Okay, I will hang on while you go get a tissue. Are you back yet? Good. 

I absolutely LOVE this idea. How nice would it be to send a bowl of homemade soup to someone you love who is going through a rough time, feeling sick, or just having a bad week? This is like the sweetest thing ever!

And y'all, it's good. Really good.... We got to try the Chicken Soup, along with their homemade rolls and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, and they were all sooo good! Even Tater ate some, and he hates soups of all kinds! :) I love the fact that it is homemade, it feels like someone actually made it just for you. I really love the whole concept of this company, and I am totally ordering from them the next time somebody I love is down in the dumps! 

Would you like to try Spoonful of Comfort's soup for yourself? 
You don't have to be sick, it's okay ;)
