(The Triangle Trend) — Campbell’s founded National Soup Month in 1986, so that now, in the chill of January, we can all warm up with piping hot bowls of comfort.
From your own home-cooked chicken noodle soup to your Grandma’s beloved clam chowder, there’s no shame in admitting that soup has a special spot in your heart.
A meal doesn’t have to be fancy to be thoroughly satisfying, and that’s exactly what soup is. The easiest way to celebrate this unique national observance is to make your favorite soups all month long and try some new ones while you’re at it. Use #NationalSoupMonth to post on social media and spread the word.
While you’re out and about, here are the top Cary spots to get your soup fix.
