Spoonful of Comfort Review and Giveaway CLOSED

Chicken soup has long been touted by grandmas everywhere as being "good for what ails you". Not only is chicken soup the hot comforting meal of choice when you are under the weather, this traditional soup has been found to provide actual health benefits as well.


Dr. Stephen Rennard, a specialist in pulmonary medicine, put grandma's theory to the test. He has found that chicken soup can inhibit inflammation of the cells in the nasal passage which reduces the symptoms of a cold.


Chicken soup has also been found to contain an amino acid that is similar to a drug used to treat some respiratory infections


While there is no conclusive evidence that chicken soup is a cure-all, it does seem probable that it can help to alleviate symptoms. Most importantly, it is a good source of nutrients and re-hydration.

Be comforted by the warmth and greatness of our old-fashion chicken soup; a home-style taste that even grandmas would approve of!




We tend to turn to chicken soup when we're feeling under the weather, sad or even as a token of codolence and that's exactly where the idea for Spoonful of Comfort came from.


In October of 2007, Spoonful of Comfort's CEO Mari Wymer learned that her mother had been diagnosed with lung cancer. The diagnosis was shocking and she was saddened by the fact that she was in Florida and her mother in Canada. She had just arrived home from visting her the day before and couldn't simply turn back so she began to search for something to send to her.


However, nothing seemed appropriate and that's when she thought of how chicken soup was always such a source of comfort for her and that's when Spoonful of Comfort was born.


Her promise is that: 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 delighted when I was given the opportunity to review Spoonful of Comfort as I have always been a huge fan of chicken soup.


Ironically enough, my Spoonful of Comfort care package arrived when I was having a less than stellar day. It contained a large jar of chicken soup (enough for 4 large bowls), homemade rolls and oatmeal raisin cookies.





Everything was delicious and genuinely homemade! It's no wonder why Spoonful of Comfort was recently featured in "All You" and "Entrepreneur" Magazines!

My family and I finished everything within hours and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a "Spoonful of Comfort".

    It's probably strange but I sweets comfort me. I can have a really stressful or awful day, and there's something about a creamy slice of cheesecake or a smooth milkshake that calms my nerves.
