Ted Cruz likes soup. A lot. And Heidi Cruz can't stop talking about it!
The presidential candidate appeared on CNN's Town Hall Wednesday night and with his wife, Heidi, revealed that he once bought 100 cans of soup when the two were newlyweds.
"When I married Ted, we got back from our honeymoon, and he went off to the store and came home by himself," Heidi Cruz said. "And I was completely shocked to see that he arrived back at our apartment with literally 100 cans of Campbell's Chunky soup. I never bought 100 of anything."
Heidi then told Anderson Cooper that she was shocked how her husband seems to have dismissed any notion of her potentially cooking for him.
"This was shocking to me, so we had a tough conversation about it. I said, 'You don't buy 100 of anything, much less canned soup. We can't do this. I'll be making things.' He said, 'No, I know you. You won't be making things.'"
After returning the many cans of soup, Heidi said she called her mom to ask if she had "done the right thing as a newlywed."
"And she emphatically disagreed with me," Heidi explained. "And so when Ted opened the pantry, I had to quickly tell him that I would go back and buy those cans again."
This is not the first time soup has come up as one of Ted Cruz's favorite foods.
An Us Weekly story asked Cruz what people didn't know about him, and his love for soup was one of the answers. "When I'm away from the family, in Washington, D.C., my dinner is a can of soup," Cruz said. "I have dozens in the pantry."
And when Heidi was on Megyn Kelly earlier this week, she told the same soup story yet again!
