This month, World Kitchen's Snapware brand has teamed up with Chef Emeril Lagasse to celebrate National Soup Month and help Americans "warm up" with exclusive recipes and tips.The Snapware brand is also serving up the chance for its Facebook fans to win a trip for four to Orlando, FL with its Snapware Winter Warm-Up Sweepstakes.
In addition to the grand prize, weekly winners will receive a Snapware prize pack.
According to independent research company Wakefield Research, of 1,000 U.S. adults polled in November 2013, more than 85% agree that soup should be the official meal of winter and 73% "double wrap" food containers containing soup when transporting them for leak protection.
"Soup is an ideal meal for the winter months. It's the ultimate comfort food and a great simple solution for weeknight meals," said Lagasse. "I like to make a large batch of soup on the weekend and then store leftovers in my Snapware containers to eat later in the week. I don't have to worry about spills or leaks with their leak-proof lids."
According to World Kitchen, Snapware's new Total Solution collection combines an airtight and "leak-proof," four-latch plastic lid with a Pyrex oven-safe glass vessel, offering both glass and plastic vessels combined with Snapware lids for easy transportation without worries of leaks, according to the company.
