Soupermarket Building / Landmark in Yonderverse | World Anvil

Soupermarket

Don't visit the Soupermarket if you don't like soup. Just don't. And if you have soupaphobia then this is your worst nightmare. If you enjoy soup, then visit the Soupermarket. The Soupermarket offers hundreds of soup flavours, pre-heated, or in tiny packets, your choice!
The Soupermarket can be found in the bustling, modern part of Northern Aricos. The Soupermarket is the largest supermarket in the city, and the only store on the planet to exclusively sell soup. In fact, the Soupermarket is so popular that it has outsold every other soup business in the city, and even region.

Soup Flavours & Varieties

There are two different kinds of soups you can purchase at the Soupermarket. You can buy soup pre-heated in wrapped bowls to enjoy either at the cafe near the back of the store, or you can purchase small packets containing "soup powder", to be added to boiling water in the comfort of your own home.

As the only soup store in the city, and the biggest soup store in the entire solar system, the company has expanded the range of flavours to include those from other planets, such as Karkhala and Osao. Sun-dried wigs, red sand, and bubble are some of the most popular Osaoan flavours, and importing ingredients has majorly impacted Osao's economy.

Spoons & Bowls

A massive oversight by the company, at the beginning the Soupermarket didn't even sell spoons or bowls. What else would you eat soup with? A straw? Pish.

Right at the entrance of the store is a large display of intricately carved spoons. The most advertised spoon is the King's Spoon, at only 12.99.

The entrance of the Soupermarket also displays a number of "artisonal" bowls, all hand-carved by a robot and a conveyor belt in the basement.

These Prices Make Miso Happy

Because of how popular soup is on Cilvarth, the company was not afraid to lower the prices to make them ridiculously cheap. One could easily buy five packets of soup for the same price as a cup of fancy tea from a nearby cafe.

A most excellent dispensary. But... can one buy clothes at this soup store?

It certainly lives up to its name. Never before had I seen so much soup in one place and with so many options. What a glorious sight! I think this will be a place I come back to often during my stay in Aricos.   That assumes of course that I am able to find some kind of stable employment to help pay for trying all these soups.   I just learned that soupaphobia is a condition one can have around here. That means there must be other food options around if I need to spice things up a little. - Nemo, World Traveler

Tea is most popular in Aricos! Soup is popular too, as well as tea-flavoured soup xD
