10 Realizations on Your First Visit to Souplantation & Sweet Tomatoes

by admin on Friday, August 15, 2014 · 4 comments

in Fun Stuff

Do you remember your first visit to Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes? Do you remember your reaction when you realized all of the possible combinations you could make at the salad bar, your first bite of a freshly baked Blueberry Muffin, or the first time you dipped Sourdough Bread into your scratch-made soup? Today, we’re taking you on a trip down a memory lane of firsts.

After witnessing several “first-timers” at Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes, we’re pretty sure that the overall experience involves a range of excitement like the following list (yup, we’ve seen each and every one of these reactions):

1.    Your face when you walked in and realized that there were SO. MANY. OPTIONS.

2.    When someone told you that our salad bar contains over 50 fresh ingredients (and you proceeded to try and pile every single one onto one plate of fresh goodness).

3.    The look when you took a step past the salad bar and discovered what was beyond – soup, pasta, dessert…ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES!

4.    When you realized you could take 3 – yes, 3 (there’s no judgment here) – bowls of 3 different soups at once…or more!

5.    When the time came to head back for seconds (Or thirds. Or sixths for that matter).

6.    When you made your first Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes recipe hack (there’s not a .gif great enough to express your excitement when we regrammed it on our Instagram).

7.    The look of triumph when you approached the bar on your 5th trip back (you knew what you liked and how you wanted to dish it out).

8.    When you realized the soft serve station was entirely DIY (there’s no such thing as overboard when it comes to dessert, right?!).

9.    When you realized you could actually have a bite of everything on the menu (why would you ever choose soup OR salad again when you can have both?).

10.    And, the moment you realized you could visit again the next day.

Did you have an epic reaction when you first visited Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes? Tell us about it below!

I first was introduced to Sweet tomatoes in calif. Right around the corner from where my brother and his family lived. When they started coming across the nation, I was so happy. So many choices. First time I had squaw bread. The restaurant is still is a favorite of mine but closest one is over an hour away..we had a couple good areas for one to open here in florida (melbourne, viera, rockledge, cape canaveral) but I gave up trying to get them to come here. I would eat here every day if it were closer. Miss eating there and have introduced this restaurant to visiting relatives and friends.

I got excited when i found out your ice cream is lactose free as i have just recently succumb to a dairy intolerance that is very painful.

Re:Soups. I realize that soup ingredients are available when asked (though many people are unaware of this fact) but it is suggested that ingredients such as sugar and sodium content be added to the soup label/identifier posted over the counter. Many people have health problems that they are trying to control and this would go a long way toward this end. Since your soups are homemade this could be done very easily.
