Spoonful of Comfort Fights Flu Season with Soup Science

~ Send Soup to Flu Suffers Across the Nation as a Thoughtful Get Well Gift ~

SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Flu season is nothing to sneeze at. With its early outbreak, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns the 2013 flu season may be the worst in 10 years. Now Spoonful of Comfort is doing its part to combat it.

The proclaimed Flu Fighter Package is a get-well gift that gives flu sufferers something to feel good about. Delivered right to a recipient's door (no germs exchanged!), the package includes a half-gallon of chicken noodle soup, a plush blanket, cozy socks, along with a handwritten message from the sender.

While it's certainly a treat to receive a gift from Spoonful of Comfort, it turns out it's a treatment, too. Since the flu is a virus and not treatable with antibiotics, doctors often recommend other remedies. Hot soup helps relieve symptoms like stuffiness, congestion, and sore throat. It's also essential in preventing dehydration, a common effect from fever. Spoonful of Comfort goes the extra step to encourage the "plenty of rest" doctors suggest; the Flu Fighter Package includes a blanket and warm socks.

Spoonful of Comfort also offers custom packages that include other get-well goodies such as tea, fresh rolls, cookies, and more. Prices begin at $24.99. The Flu Fighter Package is $59.99 and may well be the most effective get-well wish you can send.

The Flu Fighter Package may be ordered online at or by calling 877-404-7678.

This package is just one of many thoughtful gift ideas Spoonful of Comfort has been simmering up since 2008. The company is dedicated to the memory of Mona Bowes: mother, friend, and chicken soup connoisseur. A portion of all sales supports cancer research and patient advocacy via a memorial fund in her name.
