FREQUENTLY ASKED, FREQUENTLY ANSWERED.
Do Spoon Optional soups contain any meat or dairy?
No! All of our soups are certified vegan which means they don't contain any dairy or meat byproducts. Some people also call this plant-based.
Are Spoon Optional soups gluten-free?
Yes, Spoon Optional soups are completely gluten-free, but they are manufactured in a facility that is not certified gluten-free. We hope to apply for this certification during the upcoming year.
Are Spoon Optional soups safe for someone with a peanut or tree nut allergy?
Yes, Spoon Optional soups contain no nuts of any kind. Our manufacturing facility has a strict allergen control program to provide assurance that allergen cross contamination will not occur. Consumers with allergies or sensitivities can safely consumer our soups.
What's the best way to heat Spoon Optional soups?
We usually enjoy our soups chilled right out of the bottle, but understand that there are certain times of the year when having a warm mug of soup is preferable. We DO live in Minnesota so we get it! The plastic bottles that we use for our soups, while durable and so very convenient, are not microwave-safe. We usually pour our soup into a microwave-safe container to heat in the microwave, or warm it over a low heat in a pan on a stove. Either way works great!
Can I purchase a quantity larger than 12oz?
Absolutely. If you're a member at a co-op where Spoon Optional is sold, talk to the Manager there. Typically they'll order you full cases (6 bottles) for a discount.
Can I place a special order for a flavor that isn’t currently available?
Sorry, not at this time. Right now we are focused on growing our business and getting our four year-round flavors into as many eager hands as possible. We hope to add additional seasonal offerings in the future. Check the Sippable Soups page to see when new soups will be available. It’ll be worth the wait.
