Is Soup a Drink?
Is Soup a Drink?
This is an old debate I've seen on an old forum I was a member of a while back, and thought it might make for some good discussion. What do you think? Can soup be considered a drink? I always considered it a food, but after having some soup where you basically have to drink it to finish it I'm in the 'it depends' category.

RE: Is Soup a Drink?
People who think soup is a drink are nasty.

Soup isn't a drink. Soup is a salad with overboard dressing.

If soup is officially considered to not be a drink, would you chew it instead?

My erstwhile father in law opined that soup is just flavoured water. Looked at that truly nasty Cuppa Soup which comes in packets, I hasten to agree.

In winter I really enjoy tomato soup (from a can)  I drink that from a large mug, often with dry biscuits (crackers) crumbled in.

But, I wouldn't call my home made pea and ham soup anything less than a meal. Always eaten with a spoon.

So, I'm afraid I need to sit on the fence.  Perhaps it's either depending on the dish and/or the eye of the beholder.

If you drink soup, soup is a drink.

If you eat soup, soup is a food.

Hmm, I guess it depends on how thick the soup is and what's inside the soup if it's like potatoes and something you can choke on it's a soup, not a drink. If it's something you won't choke on and it's something you can drink then I can see the argument that it's a drink? Do I consider soup a drink? no. I consider soup, soup. But is that because I was raised with the idea of what soup is supposed to look like? Be careful I'll philosophies the soup. No, in all seriousness i consider soup, a soup.

If it has enough bourbon in it, sawdust can be considered a drink....
