Why You Need More SUBWAY® Soup.
Soup is food for the soul. It is hearty, wholesome and some have compared it to what makes up a family. Each ingredient enhances the other and it needs to simmer together to reach its full flavour.
After all, soup is a dish that our parents gave us when we weren’t feeling well or a bowl of warmth that we enjoyed after coming in from playing in the snow for hours. It’s nostalgic, familiar and it makes you feel warm and loved. At least, it’s like that to me!
Here are four reasons why you need more soup in your life this winter:
1. It Brings People Together!
That’s why it is a social food, it brings people together and it warms them from the inside out. Getting together for a steaming bowl of soup is the perfect excuse to get out and enjoy the fun activities winter has to offer and spend more time together.
SUBWAY restaurants have launched a new French Onion Soup, available for a limited time. Let me tell you, it is delicious! It is topped with toasted cheese bread and features a rich beef broth simmered with sliced sautéed sweet onions. Every spoonful is divine! It is amazing alone but, even better paired with your favourite SUBWAY sandwich.
2. It’s Feel Good!
A few weeks ago, Darasak and I headed to our nation’s capital for a day filled with fun, games and skating for SUBWAY Canada’s Soup Social at the Rink of Dreams. Canadians came out with skates in hand and tummies ready for soup. SUBWAY’s pop-up complimentary soup bar was open to Canadians to try three flavours of their delicious soups. Cream of Broccoli, Homestyle Chicken Noodle and the limited time offering of French Onion Soup.
The best part? All of SUBWAY’s soups are free from artificial colours and flavours. They’re made with ingredients you can feel good about and feel like a warm hug. Seriously, guys! There’s something about a warm bowl of soup, it’s simply comforting.
3. Great Way to Get Veggies In!
Most of us do not get the recommended servings of vegetables every day. Having soup is a great way to start a meal since they always have yummy veggies in them. You can get some in almost all of SUBWAY’s soups, especially the Homestyle Chicken Noodle, which has carrots, cabbage and celery alongside egg noodles and juicy bits of chicken.
4. It’s SUPER Filling!
I know that I enjoy SUBWAY when I am being health conscious or when I am having a craving for it. Pairing their soups with a 6-inch sandwich for a filling, health conscious meal is always a home run. I get all the goodness of soft bread, tasty cheese, savoury sauces and yummy meat and veggies. Plus, more veggies and a great soup or broth to keep me full until my next meal.
The SUBWAY Soup Social was so much fun and the pop-up tent was warm and cozy. You could even plug in your devices to charge while you sat down, played games and enjoyed a bowl of soup. Once you were all warm and re-energized, you could head back out to skate. Let me tell you, tons of fun was had by all. I had a great time kicking Darasak’s butt at Connect 4, it was a hoot!
Try It Now!
If you couldn’t join us in Ottawa, you can still give these delicious soups a try. Especially the French Onion soup that is just incredible. Now that you know all the reasons why you need more SUBWAY soup in your life, all you have to do is visit your nearest SUBWAY restaurant to grab a cup!
