The Bookbinder soups featured will be their legendary Snapper (turtle) Soups, and their award winning and top selling, Lobster Bisque. Also available for sampling will be four new, all natural and gluten free soup flavors: Southwestern Clam & Corn Chowder, Butternut Squash & Mushroom Soup, Sicilian Tomato-Zucchini Bisque, and Tuscan Minestrone Soup.
“There is a strong demand for great tasting, restaurant-quality food that can be easily prepared in the home or office. Indulgences should be enjoyed!” explained Sean O’Neil, Bookbinder’s Chief Soup Officer.
Bookbinder’s soups have been a staple in the Philadelphia area, and served in the Old Original Bookbinder’s Restaurant since 1865. The restaurant created a foods division in the early 1970s to share the original restaurant favorites as packaged foods sold throughout the United States. Today, Bookbinders Specialties carries on the tradition of the restaurant while catering to the expectations of the nation’s gourmet consumers. The soups are sold in natural and specialty food stores across the United States, including most Giant, Acme, Shop-Rite, Pathmark, SuperFresh, The Fresh Grocer, Redner, A&P, and Weis markets in the greater Philadelphia area.
