Smart Soup is now available at Costco locations throughout Chicago.

As everyone gets back to their usual busy schedules after the holidays, it can be tough to keep up those New Year’s resolutions. Whether you’re trying to find healthier food alternatives to those fast-food lunches, or attempting to find time to give back to the community, it can be all too easy to put things off until tomorrow; or the weekend; or next week…

Make all your good intentions a reality in one step with a new solution hitting the shelves at Chicago Costco stores. Smart Soup is a new line of health-conscious, flavor-packed soups created by Anne Chong Hill, a food industry veteran and lifelong cook.

The soups are flash-frozen straight from the kettle, preserving all the nutrients and flavor. This provides a quick and easy meal with the health-consciousness you promised yourself on January 1. Varieties like “Vietnamese Carrot Lemongrass” and “Santa Fe Corn Chowder” pack in complex flavors and satisfying textures that are unexpected from prepared soups; they are even vegan and gluten-free, too.

Even better, as part of their Chicago debut, Smart Soup is donating a meal for every box sold from now until February 28 to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. This partnership will help the Greater Chicago Food Depository with its post-holiday needs.
