Today was my first delivery. I got a green salad, a container of some type of Thai soup, and a couple chunks of baguette. Nice. I had the salad for lunch today and OMG! it's wonderful. Fresh,tasty greens with shredded carrot and dried cranberries. The dressing is similar to Annie's Goddess dressing, which I love. Now I'm hooked. I've had many opportunities to sample their soup in the past, in the workplace, at community events, etc. Every soup I've tried has been really great. I have always come this close to committing, but I never did it. Now that I have I'm hooked.
Originally, I was going to just get a container of soup a week, but now I'm going to have to go for the salad and bread, as well. It's all too good to pass up. I figure if I keep this up (which I don't see why I wouldn't) it will give my lunches some structure. I will eat the salad and a chunk of bread on Wednesday (day of delivery) and then split the soup and other chunk of bread for lunches on Thursday and Friday.
Soupcycle is SO PORTLAND - even if the idea did originate in Austin. It totally goes with what we're collectively about, IMO. Love that. And checking back on earlier posts here when they first started out and knowing how they do their business from others who get their orders at work, I know they have this deal running quite well. It looks like they learned early on how important customer service is and have worked out the kinks. It's getting bigger and bigger. I think there are now 12 people in my building (possibly more from other companies) soupscribing. It took me a while, but I'm on the bandwagon now.

I hope you find an opportunity to sample their soups somehow, someway to see if they still do nothing for you or to find out if you think they've improved. I would hold off on doing a soupscription until you're sure it's what you really want. Give them a call or contact them through their website and see if there is someplace they are going to be where you can sample them in the near future.
Soup often isn't the most exciting food on the planet, but I find this stuff warms, nurtures, and tastes good. At least so far...
