Snapware Winter Warm-Up Sweepstakes

CHEF EMERIL LAGASSE AND SNAPWARE® CELEBRATE NATIONAL SOUP MONTH WITH THE WINTER WARM-UP

Discover Exclusive Soup Recipes, Storage Tips and Enter to Win the Snapware Winter Warm-Up Sweepstakes

ROSEMONT, Ill. – January 8, 2014 – More than 85 percent* of Americans agree that soup should be the official meal of winter. This January, the Snapware® brand has teamed up with Chef Emeril Lagasse to celebrate National Soup Month and help Americans warm-up with exclusive recipes, tips and more. To help fans escape the cold, the Snapware brand is serving up the chance to win a trip for four to Orlando, Fla. with the Snapware Winter Warm-Up Sweepstakes on Facebook.

Although a winter favorite, soup can be a struggle to store and transport; 73 percent* of Americans frequently feel the need to “double wrap” food containers when transporting them for leak protection. Snapware delivers a solution with products that feature easy-to-open, four-latch, air-tight and leak-proof lids, preventing spills at home and on-the-go. The New Snapware® Total Solution™ collection combines an air-tight and leak-proof, four-latch plastic lid with a Pyrex® oven-safe glass vessel, offering both glass and plastic vessels combined with tried and true Snapware lids for easy transportation without worries of leaks.

“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.”

To make storage simple, the small and medium-sized Total Solution™ lids are designed to fit multiple square, round and rectangular containers. Lids also fit interchangeably by size and shape on the six glass and 12 plastic vessels of various capacities, from 1 cup to nearly 16 cups. Like-shaped plastic vessels and lids securely stack atop each other, making storage and organization a snap.

Celebrating all things soup, Chef Lagasse and Snapware are sharing soup recipes and tips at Facebook.com/Snapware based on America’s preferences as revealed in a recent survey:

· The Heat is On. Nearly half (44 percent*) of Americans agree that a hot cup of soup is the best way to warm up during the winter, above cuddling (25 percent*) and taking a warm bath (12 percent*)

· Chicken Soup for the Soul. 36 percent* of Americans named Chicken Noodle their favorite kind of soup, followed by Clam Chowder (19 percent*); and 66 percent* deemed homemade chicken noodle soup the best winter comfort food, before fried chicken (12 percent*), macaroni and cheese (11 percent) and grilled cheese (11 percent)

· Get Your Soup On. 39 percent* of Americans most prefer meaty, hearty soups

In addition to recipes and tips, fans who visit the Snapware brand Facebook page are also encouraged to enter the Snapware® Winter Warm-Up Sweepstakes daily for the chance to win airfare and accommodations for four to Orlando, as well as dinner at Emeril’s Orlando restaurant and tickets to local attractions.
