SOUP

Excavators in China discovered the world's oldest soup near the famed terracotta army of Xian. Now cloudy and green from the bronze cooking vessel in which it was sealed, the bone soup, surprisingly still in liquid form, was found in a tomb dating to the Warring States period (475-221 B.C.), alongside a vessel that may have held wine.
   Researchers are now trying to discover the recipe.

When composer Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) needed inspiration, he had a bowl of noodle soup.

Progresso created its first Progresso premium soup in 1949, a minestrone based on an old family recipe. It was the first canned, ready-to-serve soup in America.

The colors of Campbell's Soup labels, red and white, come from the colors of the Cornell University football team.
