Chicken soup is often referred to as “Jewish penicillin.” It has a long history as a cold remedy, and mothers and grandmothers push it on kids when they are sick. Maimonides recommended it for respiratory conditions in the 12th century. In fact, a research paper published in the journal Chest, presented evidence that eating chicken soup while you have a cold has a mild anti-inflammatory effect and helps to reduce symptoms. Another study published in Psychological Science noted chicken soup as a comfort food that helps to fight loneliness.
Getting a beautifully wrapped half gallon jar of fresh chicken noodle soup could do a lot to lift the spirits of a friend who is feeling ill, a new mother with little time to cook, a young couple who have moved to a new home, or a college student studying for exams.

The soup does taste homemade, with large chunks of fresh chicken. The wide egg noodles have a firm and chewy texture, unlike the limp and soggy noodles often found in canned soup.
