An update from Cheerio la la land
I’m always amazed at what fun things find their way into my life. Big realizations, happy thoughts, awesome people and sometimes, even yummy soup just magically appear. Yes, even soup.
A few weeks back, I received an email asking if I would like to test out some vegan soups – Hall’s Kitchen soups to be exact. At first I thought “me?”, the girl with the blog about Cheerios? But after a minute, I could see why I was asked. I’ve become pretty picky about what I eat these days, and I was quick to go to the company’s website to check out the ingredient list before I agreed. To my amazement, they were all “real” ingredients. No unpronounceable words, no modified anything, no dairy, no wheat, no gluten, and in fact, a lot of the ingredients were actually organic! And as I have come to realize over these last few months, these are rare, rare qualities to find in a store bought food item. Game on!
Even more amazing is that the soup showed up the very next day, delivered in person by a friendly guy. Also awesome was that it came during a busy time, so I had something tasty and nutritious to eat even if I didn’t have time to make anything myself. And, uhm, I don’t know if I get avid-recycler points for this or if it just makes me look cheap, but they came in two awesome Mason jars that are now living in my cupboard.
The two flavours I received were the Bangkok Curry, Coconut & Lime Soup and the Chick Pea, Tomato, Spinach & Lemon Soup, and both were super yummy, although I was partial to the Bangkok Curry since I’m on a curry and coconut kick these days.
But to tell you the truth, the part I enjoyed most was to see how much love and care had obviously been put into getting this product out there. It was someone’s dream, something different and wholesome that they really believed in, and there it was, coming to life. Very tummy warming indeed.
