You can probably quote your favorite episode of Seinfeld from title credits to end credits, and chances are, you’re familiar with the famous “Soup Nazi” episode and his infamous catchphrase, “No soup for you!” Well Seinfeld fans, you can bring home the soup that Elaine attempted to slurp from the same New York-based soup company of Seinfeld lore. Ready your spoons, because The Original SoupMan soup cartons hit supermarket shelves across the country early last month.
Originating from the soup mecca location at 55th Street and 8th Avenue in Manhattan, The Original SoupMan cartons contain the same hearty recipes that Jerry and George spent hours standing in line for. And unlike the stuff you slide out of a can, they use big chunks of fresh-caught North Atlantic seafood in their Lobster Bisque and crunchy, Grandmother-approved veggies in their Chicken Noodle Soup–no mushy, condensed soup here!
They’re rolling out four flavors: Lobster Bisque, Chicken Noodle, Tomato Bisque, and Lentil Soup. And while the Lobster Bisque is the soup that “made Al the renowned soup craftsman that he is today,” they humbly claim that all of their soups are simply legendary.
Each 17oz soup carton contains enough for two servings are retails for the modest price of just $3.99. The best part? No fear of getting booted to the back of the line by an ornery soup dispenser.
So are these carton soups as good as the real thing? Let us know what you think.
