Soup for Boston!

After a successful social media push, Boston will get a visit from the infamous Soup Nazi.

The Soup for Boston Facebook confirmed Tuesday that later this month, the city will get to enjoy the flavors of the Seinfeld Soup Nazi’s food truck, although the date has yet to be determined.

Last month, the Facebook page started asking Boston’s soup and Seinfeld fans to help convince the sitcom Soup Nazi to bring the good stuff to Boston.

The page said it was created on June 8, and as of Tuesday had 337 “likes.”

The creator of the page said :

“We just found out the great news that the Soup Nazi and his Seinfeld food truck WILL be coming to Boston later this month/early August (will be finding out the exact dates soon). We’re asking all our fans to help decide where the truck will go by posting their suggestions on our FB page (www.facebook.com/soupforboston) or on Twitter using the hashtag #soupforboston.”

The “mission” of the page reads: “For years he’s denied us soup. Now is time we fight back. ‘Like’ this cause and help bring the Soup Nazi to Boston!”

The Seinfeld Food Truck, manned by Seinfeld’s own “Soup Nazi,” played by actor Larry Thomas, will hand out free iconic Seinfeld food samples like Junior Mints, Mulligatawny soup, non-fat yogurt and black and white cookies.

The treats will hit a note with fans familiar with the hit sitcom’s food-related episodes.
No word yet on whether Thomas will dish out marble rye.

He will, however, give away Seinfeld souvenirs and pose for photographs with fans.
