Skyclub groundhog day, broccoli cheese and vegetarian chili soups

Ugh, seems like it's been 6 weeks of that stuff. Horrible thing to do to people before they board a tight enclosed space. Can't they find anything less gassey?

Note, last record of it I saw was last Thursday, hopefully it's changed since then.

Couldn't agree more. I usually enjoy their soups, but these two options are horrid.

Actually I'm OK with the broccoli cheese soup, but then I liked the earlier winter squash offering.

I think it's very unhealthy!! Cheese and cream with a few broccoli florets?? No thx.

Question. Why do the Sky Clubs not have to post calorie information like other chain restaurants? I was under the impression that was a new legal requirement passed with the affordable care act? No?

It's calcium and protein with a big dose of fat.

It's the latest enhancement. Inflight aromatherapy.

...there is a vegetarian option that I am sure is much healthier. There are also vegetables.

It's the SC, not Whole Foods.

Broccoli is a veggie--it's even green.

I found its pretty good if you take some of the raw broccoli from the veggie area, put that in a soup cup, and then pour some soup over it. Normally the soup is hot enough to warm up the raw broccoli and start to cook it after a few min. I tend to like broccoli soup with lots of brocc in it, not just a green color liquid

Oh and I've seen some other soups around... guess it depends on the SC location.

Good idea.

I guess you could use the same method to add cheese or even beer to it.
