The entire month of January is National Soup Month, and there is no better way to warm up on a cold winter night than with a hot bowl of your favorite soup. At Price Chopper and Market 32, we have a ton of soup options including hot soup in our deli, canned soup in our soup aisle, and all the ingredients to make it homemade. The great thing about making homemade soup is that you can completely customize it to your liking, and there is no right or wrong way. There are many vegan and vegetarian soup recipes as well. Be sure to check out our Price Chopper Website, our Price Chopper Ready Website and YouTube Channel for recipes and tutorials!

Instant Pot® Tortellini & Vegetable Soup: This warm and filling soup is loaded with a variety of vegetables. While it is free of meat, you can always add in chicken or beef if you choose. 

Chicken, Spinach, & Quinoa Soup: We have heard of soup with noodles and rice, but what about quinoa?  Be sure to check out our variety of quinoa that is located in the aisle with the rice and beans.

Thai Coconut Shrimp Soup: Bring a little bit of summer in your home on a cold January day! Sprinkle on fresh cilantro or jalapeño pepper for garnish.

White Cheddar & Ale Soup: Love a cheesy, creamy  soup? Then this is the recipe for you! Be sure to stop by the bakery section and pair with your favorite bread.

Happy National Soup Month!

Halloween night is always exciting for the little ones. They get to dress up as anything or anyone, load their bags with more candy than they can possibly consume, and enjoy many laughs with friends. Oftentimes, the days leading up to Halloween are even more fun. We have some ideas for pumpkin carving and snack recipes that we want you to try! Keep reading if you dare…

Pumpkin carving is a great way to spend time with your family, friends, or partner. Friendly pumpkin carving competitions are also very common this time of year. Have you ever wondered why we carve pumpkins? Well, we researched this exact same thing and are here to give you answers!

While many may think that pumpkin carving began in the United States, that is actually false. Turnip carving (yes, turnips!) originated in England, Ireland, and Scotland. Carving turnips was a symbol of death and was used to scare neighbors. It was not until the 1800s when people from England and Ireland began immigrating to America that pumpkin carving began in the United States. Since there is such an abundance of pumpkins here this time of year, these groups of people began to carve pumpkins instead. Now when you carve your pumpkin for Halloween this year, you will know how this tradition started! Want to learn more? Check out this website Halloween History: Why We Carve Pumpkins
