The Original Soupman
The name says it all, and if you recognized it, that might be thanks to Seinfeld. Yep, The Original Soupman is the franchise born from Soup Kitchen International, which was located on 55th St. in New York. It was the inspiration for Seinfeld’s episode “The Soup Nazi.” But, before you roll your eyes, let me tell you, it’s that good. The restaurant really did have lines that wrapped around the building. Treat dad to a hearty classic comfort food that you can enjoy with a good laugh!
Of course, they have the classic Chicken Noodle soup, but they have other assortments too. From seafood bisques to Cajun inspired stews, and even Gluten-Free Lentil soup, The Original Soupman has something for everyone. If you can’t decide, that’s OK. They have a variety pack too.
Local Hive is an interesting option. The company partners with local beekeepers across the country to prepare honey that’s pure and fresh. On their site’s homepage, you can see all the different areas where they have partnered to make local honey. They have locations all along the West Coast region, the Rocky Mountain area, the Northeast, the Southeast, and the Midwest. They also have three standard products: Amber, Clover, and Wildflower. While Amber and Clover are consistent, Wildflower varies from season to season.
When they say pure, they mean that they don’t filter it and they don’t add anything to it. The one thing the do is test it to make sure that there are no antibiotics or pesticides found in it before bottling. I, personally, like the sound of that, and the taste of it too. This is a good choice for a dad that prefers organic, needs a natural sweetner for health reasons, or one that just loves honey.
In the end, what you get for dad for Father’s Day is really all about him. Whether it’s a favorite of his, something he needs for his health, or a fun way for you to spend time together, food is always a good choice. If finding these items is not convenient locally, and you’re worried about shipping times, don’t forget that printing off a coupon or gift certificate is a great present as well. Then, he can choose his flavor! To all the dads out there, Happy Father’s Day!
