Soup for You! Which ‘Seinfeld’ Star is Reuniting With the Soup Nazi?
Seventeen years after denying them his turkey chili, it appears the “Soup Nazi” and the cast of “Seinfeld’ have made peace in an effort to bring the joy of gourmet soup to the masses. So which ‘Seinfeld’ star will be an official spokesperson for the soup chain?
Jason Alexander and Al Yeganeh, real life “SoupMan” and inspiration for the celebrated “Seinfeld” character, are partnering on the Original SoupMan brand of soups.
According to The Huffington Post, Alexander will serve as the brand’s “champion,” helping to build the line in supermarkets and franchised restaurants. Sports icons and soup fans, Reggie Jackson and Shaquille O’Neal are also on board.
And almost twenty-years after the beloved “Soup Nazi” episode aired, Alexander is thrilled to bring the SoupMan’s simmering delights to the rest of the country.
“I think it’s great coming full circle with Al’s Soups, “said Alexander. “I lined up with New Yorkers for years for his amazing creations. Then we had one of the greatest episodes of ‘Seinfeld’ ever, somewhat at his expense. But now, I get to make amends by helping bring his recipes to everyone. This is a product that I personally and wholeheartedly love and I am thrilled to be part of the team bringing it to an ever increasing market. Finally, I get to say ‘Soup for you! Soup for everyone!’”
No word yet on when you can expect to find the SoupMan’s crab bisque on your local Applebee’s menu or if special instructions for non-offensive ordering will be included.
