In this cold weather does anything sound better than a warm bowl of chicken soup? Actually, make that 221 gallons of chicken soup.

That's how much soup was consumed today at the 10th annual Cincinnati Chicken Soup Cook-Off held by the Wise Temple Brotherhood. Over 25 local restaurants and cooks entered the competition to decide whose soup was souper.

FOX19's very own Jacki Jing and Dan Wells had the privilege of judging the competition, and voted Blue Ash Kroger's Traditional Matzo Ball Soup the winner in Pro division. 941 tasters from the public favored The Wich on Sycamore's less traditional Coconut Chicken Soup in the People's Choice category.

28 gallons of soup were leftover after the event and donated to the Over-the-Rhine soup kitchen. Event Co-Chair Jay Rissover says it will feed over 150 people in need.
