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:

  oThe 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*)
  oChicken 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)
  oGet Your Soup On. 39 percent* of Americans most prefer meaty, hearty soups
