Soup To Nuts Meaning

The idiom “soup to nuts” means another way to say from the beginning to the end or from start to finish.

Origin of this idiomatic phrase

The phrase “soup to nuts” appears to have first been used in America in the 1920s. However, the phrase existed in Latin long before this and has been said in many different other ways over time including “from eggs to apples” and “from soda to hock.” These were older synonyms of the phrase “soup to nuts,” which is the phrase that became the most popular. The phrase derived from the serving of a full course meal which typically began with some type of soup and ended with a dessert containing nuts.
