    It’s a cute idea, I don’t know if I like bean soup though.

    For Christmas someone gave me “Friendship soup” with beans, lentils and a whole whack of ingredients I don’t usually cook with… I thought it would sit in my pantry forever! Well, on a chilly winter day a few months ago (when I was too lazy to go to the store to get groceries) I made it… and it was delicious!

    Some people will probably have reservations, but once they make it I’m sure they’ll loooove it! I’m a bean soup convert & I say go for it 🙂

    I too love beans. All of them especially black beans and garbanzo beans. I love the idea. I understand your concern though. If it was me I would just go with the bean soup but those salsa mixes looked mighty scrumpcious as well!

    Beans are something that people either love or hate. I would go for either the salsa or cookie mixes instead.

    Go for it!! I think its a great, unique and positive gift 🙂 even if they dont eat the soup, your guests will appreciate the meaning and effort behind it, and where it goes and who it helps! Especially since showers are usually women!!

    Personally I hate beans, when I was little I  was like allergic or something and in my country beans are like one of our typical meals, so you imagine how often I see beans. However if someone give me beans as a shower flavor, and I know they have a story (like yours) I´ll be gratefull, helping others is a great thing and I´ll be happy to know that someone who needs it recieve something for the flavor. I wouldn´t eat it, but I would like it:)

    I think it will be popular for the message, not the beans itself, I say Go for it!
