Heinz Lets Friends Send “Get Well” Cans of Soup via Facebook

The next time one of your friends complains about an illness on Facebook, go a step further and send them a can of soup instead of a simple “Get well!” message on his or her Wall (or Timeline).

That’s the idea behind a UK-only Facebook promotion from Heinz. The food company is letting friends send each other real (rather than virtual) cans of Cream of Chicken or Cream of Tomato soup emblazoned with a “Get Well Soon” message and their name for £1.99 (approximately $3.00) per can.

Fans can customize and pay for the cans using a web application on Heinz’s Facebook Page. Expected delivery time is 3 to 4 days — at which point said sick friends may already have recovered. But it’s the thought that counts, right?
