    Default someone needs to invent self heating soup

    So they do, and I was thinking you know those disposable heating pads use the stuff in their to surround the soup but make it so the stuff doesn't ever contaminate the soup. Get soup from fridge at store break the stuff inside like you do the heating pad. and wait a few minutes open package get spoon eat soup.

    Sorry I'm not more techincal by I'm not really a sciencey person, I just think self heating soup would be nice.

    You could pull a pin, and it would cause a little cube of metallic sodium to drop into the soup.

    When the exothermic reaction was over the result would be toxic and rather messy, but hot.

    The technology to make what you're talking about exists -- witness the chemical MRE heaters used by the military -- and I believe has been tried, with some success.

    The process works, but the soup is kind of expensive.

    But it's soup, soup is soup. There's no such thing as expensive to make chicken noodle.

    This is what makes me so mad we pay so much money for products that do not cost that much to make.

    It's not the soup itself that drives the price up, it's the soup packaged in a single serving with the self-heating system attached.

    Would it really be that toxic? The sodium ions themselves are not poisonous, the reactions are pretty much with ions that would already exist in the soup, and you'd only need a very small amount of sodium to warm up the soup. (Though control is still an issue.)

    I think if you started out with a salt-free soup and had some method of controlling the rate of the reaction (so it wouldn't immediately burn), it could be feasible. Maybe.
