Take Home Food From Souplantation, Sweet Tomatoes

Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes, the restaurant leaders in all-you-care-to-eat, made-from-scratch foods, are helping customers nationwide entertain holiday guests this season. Starting this month, Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes restaurants will release 15 holiday take-home items – the largest retail release in the company’s history.

The new holiday take-home items follow the success of the take-and-bake Cranberry Apple Cobbler offered for the first time last year.

“Our guests responded so favorably to the Cranberry Apple Cobbler last season that we believe there’s a demand for even more delicious, made-from-scratch holiday foods that don’t require endless hours in the kitchen,” says Joan Scharff, vice president of brand and menu strategy. “All year long, our culinary team has been busy in our test kitchen developing both savory side dishes and desserts for the bake-at-home items we’re featuring this year. We’re excited to hear our guests’ reactions to these seasonal side dishes and desserts as we think they are the perfect addition to holiday meals.”

  • Sweet Maple Apple Tossed Salad with Caramelized Walnuts
