There is a new concept in fast food on the horizon with the introduction of the UK's first Soup Station. Soup Stations are already big news in Denmark, where they use the same technology that we are already familiar with on petrol forecourts. Customers can drive up to the pumps and fill up with a variety of different soups, then pay at a special kiosk, where they can also purchase breadsticks, napkins or brake fluid.
Soups currently available are tomato, minestrone and unleaded. It was hoped that leek and potato would be available by now, but in initial trials it proved to be too thick and kept clogging the nozzles. Research continues.
