Houston, TX – Go Appetít Foods, LLC is launching a new category in convenience food – Drinkable Soups. Go Appetít COOL SOUP (www.goappetit.com) is for people who want real food – fast. Soup has always represented goodness and nutrition, but instead of the classic heat and serve formula, these new soups are designed for drinking chilled. Developed by two entrepreneurial single moms, the soup targets smart, active consumers who are hip to healthy eating and want a nutritious, delicious quick meal or snack. The flavors – rich vegetable gazpacho, creamy mango spice and luscious carrot bisque –are all-natural with no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors and only 60-110 calories per 8 ounce bottle.
The aseptic packaging not only adds a nine month shelf life to the product, it also locks in taste. Go Appetít COOL SOUP is a nutritious way to balance the demands of today's busy lifestyles and get a healthy boost of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. The attractive curvy bottle makes it easy to tote and drink, anytime, anywhere.
The vegan rich vegetable gazpacho is a take on the popular antioxidant-rich Spanish soup and contains a blend of vegetables and spices such as tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, sea salt and olive oil. A serving of Gazpacho has only 100 calories with no cholesterol and low carbohydrate content.
The dairy free vitamin-packed creamy mango spice features mangos and peaches, with velvety smooth coconut cream and is seasoned with mint and a pinch of chili pepper. It has 110 calories and provides 90 percent of an adult's daily Vitamin A requirements, 60 percent of Vitamin C and 300 mg of potassium.
Rounding out the trio is the low fat, low calorie, luscious carrot bisque at only 60 calories per 8 oz. serving, 0.5 grams of fat and 3 grams of protein. This beta carotene-packed soup is rich in flavor and nutrients. A savory blend of carrots, sautéed onions, olive oil, chicken broth, and sweet potatoes, seasoned with sea salt and a hint of ginger is a great alternative for combating late afternoon energy blues.
Nutritionists recommend that people get at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily, yet the American Journal of Preventive Medicine (April 2007) states that less than 11 percent of the population meets these guidelines. Go Appetít COOL SOUP helps busy people who often don't have time to eat get their vital daily dose of fruits and vegetables.
"Go Appetít COOL SOUP redefines the experience of soup," says Jacqueline Gartland the company's Chief Creative Officer. "Soup is recognized as being good for you now we've just added anytime anywhere convenience.
Go Appetít Foods was founded by Jacqueline Gartland and Patti Melcher, two friends who shared a common vision to positively affect the way Americans eat. A love of food was instilled in Jacqui by her Spanish mother, who viewed meals as the centerpiece of daily life. During a visit to Spain, Patti and Jacqui were inspired by simple and classic dishes like Gazpacho that were loaded with taste and nutrients, yet easy to consume. So they founded Go Appetít Foods to bring the flavors and natural nutrition of recipes from the Old-World to the New. Their mission for Go Appetít Foods also includes supporting another passion of theirs – championing the health and education of children and families. They have therefore designated UNICEF as the corporate beneficiary of Go Appetít Foods.
Go Appetít COOL SOUP is available at select regional natural foods, grocery stores and also available at www.goappetit.com. The suggested retail price is $2.99 per 8 oz bottle.
