Happy Soup Eater, Kansas City?

Just wanted to report back that we tried their Black Bean and Chorizo Chili this week (which, coincidentally is on the menu at Souperman this week- kind of odd, don't you think?) and it was pretty good. It was $12 for a quart, which seemed a little pricey to me, but you really are paying for delivery too, so I had to keep reminding myself that! I could see that it would be great for someone who doesn't like to cook, but frankly, I can make a better soup for less than $12. I do like the concept though, and I probably will order again if something strikes my fancy in the weekly e-mails. It might be nice for soups that would otherwise be expensive if I bought all the ingredients for them, i.e. lobster bisque or something to that effect. It was fun to have soup waiting at my doorstep when I got home last night! I'm curious to see what they do with summer soups, because, well, you can only have gazpacho so often!
I'm not surprised that it is closed... It seems like quite the niche market, and the website, at least, appeared to be oddly put-together. The verbiage was akin to those weird notes written by the Amish children for Good Natured Family Farms eggs. I received one that paid homage to chicken cannibalism, concerning how funny it was that chickens were eating the broken eggs that sloshed out of the bucket. I've been eating Eggland's Best from then on...
Also, who needs soup delivered when you can swing by Souperman?
