January is National Soup Month


Every January Britain celebrates National Soup month. Remember that UKVending has a range of delicious and nutritious soups available from our vending machines. We thought you’d like to know a little more about soups so here are ten fun facts about soups.
The earliest archaeological evidence for the consumption of soup dates back to 6000 BC, and it was hippopotamus soup.

Soups are classified into two groups: clear soups and thick soups.

Soups can be consumed hot or cold, depending on the climate of the region where it’s being served, and flavours can be sweet or savoury.

Americans eat more than 10 billion bowls of soup each year. The most popular soup variety in the U.S. is chicken noodle.
Condensed soup was invented by Dr. John T. Dorrance, a chemist with the Campbell Soup Company, in 1897.

When foods, including soup, go through the canning process, nutrients are locked in so the amount of vitamins and nutrients in the soup is the same on the day it was canned as it is a year from the canning date.

Crown’s EasyLift® easy-open ends, revolutionized the food packaging industry by offering significantly improved finger access under the tab to make it easier and quicker for consumers to open food cans.

Crown continues to refine self-heating can technology that is capable of heating up 8.5 ounces of soup in two minutes with the press of a single button.

The pop culture catchphrase “No soup for you!”, used as a response to someone’s request or demand that will not be fulfilled, originated from a 1995 episode of the TV show “Seinfeld.”
