Soup. It's good food.

We're becoming used to sipping coffee, smoothies, and of course soft drinks in our multi-drink-holder cars. No mess, no fuss, no cleanup afterward. Heck, you can sip while you talk on your hands free cell phone.

But eating burgers or burritos from a fast food place while driving just doesn't work as well. You end up getting grease on your shirt or at least all over your fingers.

How about a nice fresh cup of soup, to go? It can be just as nutritious as the soup mom used to make, much better than a burger and fries. Heck, it requires less digestion because there's no chewing involved. Soothing for the acid-reflux road rage type A set.

What are all those cute little coffee stands that sprouted up in parking lots everywhere going to do when the coffee craze subsides? One word: Soup.

       I found a couple places that have drive thru and have soup.

       You may want to modify it to Drive Thru Soup Containers, with wider mouths for chunks and more insulation.

       They do if you consider chili to be soup.

       I was picturing a _REALLY_ big bowl, and a tunnel...
Cedar Park, Jul 11 2003
  

       youre missing out , i get soup in a cup from the place down the street all the time.
flickiter, Jul 11 2003
  

       Yeah, I was kinda picturing that drive thru thing as a tunnel of soup too.
sartep, Jul 11 2003
  

       Or maybe a road hazard on the highway after a Campbell's truck jack-knifes and overturns...

       I thought it was about urban smog (linky).

       //Soup. It's good food.//
Ah, but is it actually "food"? Or is it drink? Or is it unfood, live vampires are undead?

       Soup-to-go is a well Baked concept - there was just such a stand in the WTC concourse before the roof fell in. I think it's going to appeal to foot traffic more than drivers though, who have their cars to keep them warm in winter.
DrCurry, Jul 11 2003
  

       Yes - baked already this idea is.
masteryoda, Jul 11 2003
  

       Not exactly the same, but I think it was Campbell's that rolled out a big "soup on the move" campaign recently. You'd microwave the soup in its container, which had a handle and a sippy interface, and rush off to pursue your sporty lifestyle. The tv ad showed soccer moms having soup while ushering the kids around.

       So, not a soup dispensing drive through car wash kind of thing?
