Sweet Tomatoes/ Souplantation makes the Holiday Season Delicious, Affordable & Easy

Eat, drink and be merry! Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes is making this holiday season delicious, affordable and easy! Souplantation/ Sweet Tomatoes kicks off the holiday season with classic favorites including their famous Chicken Pot Pie Stew and Buttermilk Biscuit throughout the month of November and Creamy Herbed Turkey Soup and house-made stuffing during the month of December.

Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes wants to make the holiday season extra special by giving families more time to do the things they love while spending less time in the kitchen. For the first time, Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes will be offering the freshly made, take-home Cranberry Apple Cobbler in a convenient to-go package ready for baking at home! Guests can pre-order the take-home, bake-at-home Cranberry Apple Cobbler at any Souplantation / Sweet Tomatoes location now and will be available to be taken home the week of Thanksgiving and the entire month of December. Each cobbler serves 8-10 people.

“Holidays are a wonderful time to dine at Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes with the family, “said Joan Scharff, Vice President of brand & menu strategy. “Our Chicken Pot Pie and Herbed Turkey Soup with house-made Stuffing are always favorites of our guests and great items to enjoy in the restaurant, but this year we wanted to give folks the opportunity to take their Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes experience home with them. We think that Cranberry Apple Cobbler will be a perfect complement to holiday dinners at home as well as in the restaurant.”

My favorite Thanksgiving dessert is warm Deep Dish Walnut Crumb Apple Pie! But your Cranberry Apple Cobbler sounds great and I plan on getting one to take to my friend’s house were I am having Thanksgiving dinner. Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and remember to thank God for your blessings, and your loved ones for “whatever” they do to make your life better. :-)

I am traditional. I love pumpkin pie with fresh made wip cream–look forward to fall just for this great dessert. Also, looking forward to visiting your Ft. Myers location during the Christmas holiday when we are visiting the relatives in that area.
My entire fanily loves Sweet Tomatoes—just wish you would open one closer to us in Delaware and South Jersey!

Believe it or not, my favorite Thanksgiving dessert is from my husband’s sister’s husband’s (got that?) family: cranberry and apple cobbler! I won’t be with them this year, so I’m sure hoping to get to try Sweet Tomatoes!

Simple Pumpkin Pie Cake
I found a new favorite (for me) a few years ago, and have since found several different versions of it online and otherwise. It is Pumpkin Pie Cake, it is simply a dish made by combining Pumpkin Pie filling (canned turned out better moisture wise), and Yellow Cake Mix, (just the simple mixes nothing fancy), and butter. The Pumpkin filling is placed on top of the cake mix and 1/3 of the cake mix crumbled on top (cake mix mixed with butter) and then baked. the result is a wonderful, rich dish that is neither a cake nor a pie, the :”crust” is a moistened cakelike wonderfullness, and the crumble on top delish, and the filling has a texture that is ??? well fabulous.

My favorite dessert on Thanksgiving is my mom’s homemade cinnamon rolls. Every time we are invited somewhere when my mom asks what she can bring, they always say cinnamon rolls. I live in Florida now and my mom lives in Iowa, so the last time she was down here she showed me how to make them. Unfortunately the cinnamon roll gene must skip a generation, because mine were not nearly as delicious as hers. Next time she comes to visit I will have her teach my two daughters!! We hope to win because we love Sweet Tomatoes.

Your chocolate chip cookies are my favorite of your desserts. We always buy a bag to take home and sometimes that helps a charity which makes us feel less guilty about eating them instead of more salad!

This year, once again, I’m looking forward to tasting our fresh, homemade Apple Pie. We’ve started the tradition in our family to make our Thanksgiving Apple Pie together as a family, involving our sons of 7 and 9. Our 7 year-old has become quite the chef and enjoys cooking and helping with all kinds of meals in the kitchen. Our 9 year old will most likely help me with peeling the apples this year :-)

My favorite Thanksgiving dessert is Ritz Cracker Pie (sometimes called Mock Apple Pie) my Mema used to make this pie and I have always loved it…I have not had it in many years and had been unable to locate a recipe for it after she died, just last week my Aunt found a copy of Mema’s recipe and sent it to me…I am going to make it for my family. I can’t wait!!

My favorite Thanksgiving dessert was my grandmother’s chocolate cream pie. There was something about the creamy delicious chocolate, the flaky crust and the sweet, fluffy whipped cream that made me sneak into the kitchen & sneak an extra piece! This year, I finally get to return the favor & cook for her!

My favorite Thanksgiving dessert is Pecan Pie!

Reply

Jane Thursday, November 18, 2010 at 4:13 pm

Without a doubt, my favorite Thanksgiving dessert is southern pecan pie! Not the more-syrup-than-nuts kind, but the kind with just enough syrup to hold the pecans together…. with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!

My husband and I have just recently discovered Sweet Tomatoes. A friend who is residing in California told me about your restuarant and suggested that I try it on my next trip to Raleigh, N.C. I am so glad we did!!!! I couldn’t believe that my huband who is a meat and potatoes guy reallly loved it. We usually travel to Raleigh from Goldsboro about every two to three weeks and always make plans to visit Sweet Tomatoes.

My favorite dessert at Thanksgiving is my 92 year old mom’s sweet potato pie. My husband really enjoyed your new cranberry-apple cobbler. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!!!

This Thanksgiving I will have a new thing to be thankful for – Sweet Tomatoes.

My favorite holiday/Thanksgiving dessert would have to be all kinds of pies! I love having a little slice of everything. And My favorite Souplantation dessert is always the soft serve. I love getting swirl with a little more vanilla and then adding cookie crumbles and hot caramel all over! YUM!

Josh Dohme Thursday, November 18, 2010 at 7:49 pm

BOSTON CREME PIE.. my favorite Thanksgiving dessert by far.. second would be cinnamon pull apart bread. When ever I go to Souplantation I always get a “soup” sized bowl and fill it sky high with soft serve, my favorite dessert there!

My favorite Thanksgiving dessert is warm peach or blueberry cobbler topped with fresh whipped cream.

I think your best dessert is the ice cream bar. Everyone loves ice cream and the kids particularly love putting on the toppings and sauces. Honestly, everything is good. One thing that I love for a Thanksgiving dessert is pumpkin pie, but this recipe calls for cream cheese in the ingredients. It is the best pumpkin pie you will ever eat. My daughter gave me the recipe. Not sure who it comes from initially, but it is worth trying.

Apple Pecan Pie is the best for Thanksgiving!

My favorite Thanksgiving dessert is the traditional pumpkin pie with whipped cream. I also love pecan pie but for Thanksgiving I always go with pumpkin pie. I usually am too stuffed from all the turkey and stuffing to eat it, but this year I’m going to save room for it (or at least I’m going to try to)!

My partner always wants a traditional pumpkin pie and my favorite dessert is a raspberry pie. We will be having both and sharing with our neighbors.

My favorite dessert for Thanksgiving is Pumpkin Pie topped with Vanilla Ice cream or whipped cream, but I also like Apple Crumb Pie with whipped cream.
My most favorite dessert from Sweet Tomatoes is the Chocolate Lava cake topped with vanilla ice cream. I love your food and Sweet Tomatoes is one of our favorite places to eat.
Thank you.

For Thanksgiving I like to finish my meal with a Pumpkin Pie with whipped cream on top.
Sweet Tomatoes is one of my favorite restaurants, I often bring my friends and my girlfriend to eat there. Your food is delicious, healthy and satisfying. My most favorite dessert is your chocolate lava cake with ice cream topping.
