The truck, in all its glory

The Seinfeld Food Truck made its first stop on its eight-city national tour Wednesday afternoon in Newport Beach.
People who were on Facebook around lunchtime and could make the drive were treated to iconic Seinfeld foods, such as the Soup Nazi's mulligatawny soup, Junior Mints, muffin tops, black and white cookies, Twix and Snapple for free. In attendance was soup Nazi actor Larry Thomas, in full costume.

Pretty nice for a person whose most notable roles are the Soup Nazi, Osama Bin Laden (Postal) and Saddam Hussein (Arrested Development)


If you missed it, it's not your fault. The first promotion the event got was a tweet from the KDOC Twitter account at 9am, followed by a Facebook status update from the official Seinfeld page at noon.

(UPDATE: KDOC did run a promo on their station for two and a half days before the soup nazi showed up.)

The menu, all free of charge

It would've been nice to try some jambalaya or wild mushroom, but the mulligatawny was fine, pretty good for free soup. The muffin tops? Not the best part of the muffin.

This event was promoted terribly. The Facebook announcement didn't mention Newport as part of the tour. Would've liked to try em out.
