I hadn't seen alphabet-shaped pasta for years, since I was a child. There used to be something called Heinz Alphabetti Spahetti, which was alphabet pasta, horribly over-cooked in a red sauce. But I'm sure my mother used to make soup with the letters too. Perhaps it's where I got my interest in spelling!
Anyway I spent the rest of my free time in Germany trying to buy these edible letters, and finally succeeded.
While you're enjoying each mouthful,
see how many words you can make from the letters
Oh, look! This one's got a special message!!!
Write any words you find in the first and second spoonfuls in the comments. And what is the message in the third one?
Enjoy your soup!
