The Soul in the Bowl

Smokey Robinson's food company has reached an agreement with C&S Wholesalers for distribution into the New England/Metro New York Supermarkets.

C&S Wholesalers provides distribution for most New England and Metro New York area supermarkets including Stop & Shop, Shaws, Giant, Market Basket, Pathmark, Big Y, Tops, Genuardis, A&P, and the Roche Bros.

This agreement with C&S Wholesales will allow Smokey's fans in New York and New England to enjoy his latest hit, his "The Soul in the Bowl" Food Products.

Smokey's food products are now available in over 4,000 stores nationally* including Albertsons and Safeway stores and recently launched in five divisions of The Kroger Company with more stores being added every week.

Since the late 50’s as an entertainer, Smokey has tasted from the kettles of the world’s most renowned chefs --- and from the pots of some of the most soulful kitchens. After years of traveling the globe, Smokey has put together a product line of some of his most favorite dishes and recipes.

Fans of Motown legend Smokey Robinson will now be able to "Shop Around"--not for the single, but for gumbo.

Smokey is genuinely excited about his own line of food products!"

"I've been a gumbo connoisseur since I was a kid," Robinson says. "If you're going to make real good gumbo, it's an all-day or all-night cook. But this you pop in the microwave and its ready in just seven minutes."

Appearing on the Today Show for a taste test, Smokey's Gumbo received two thumbs up from Matt and Katie.

Located in the frozen food section, Robinson's gumbo contains chicken sausage and seafood but no red meat. It's low in cholesterol. Smokey's second product is his soulful Red Beans and Rice with more fine products to be released later this year.

The product line debuted in February 2004 with record sales and just like the living Legends's music, it is soulfoul and delicious.

Select interviews will be available on a case by case basis.
