While I don’t often post reviews, I feel compelled to for this product as it was such an incredible disappointment. I was a food writer and food editor for a number of publications for many years and am happy to invest research time into selecting the right products, especially when you are buying multiples of a single item. This broth had some excellent reviews, and I find it hard to believe that the reviewers had tasted/evaluated the same product that I purchased as the broth tasted watery with little real chicken flavor and had almost an artificial flavor to it. While it may be organic, there is none of the savory warmth most of us would associated with even a somewhat watered-down version of homemade broth. I actually found that to use it, I had to prepare a “side order” of Better Than Bouillon chicken flavor to kick in some semblance of real, hearty chicken flavor. What’s interesting is that perhaps this experience comports with a number of blind tastings of organic and free-range poultry wherein the organic and free-range birds often came up quite short on flavor as much as we all would like to think the flavor would be better from a purely philosophical perspective. When you also add in the price premium, I would say this is not a product that I would recommend at all.
Love the broth, but didn’t realize it was the small boxes. I use broth all the time and next time will look for the bigger boxes.
Imagine Chicken broth is as close to homemade stock as I can find. Cooks Illustrated rates it very high also. My only complaint is I am unable to get it in a larger size. A 1 Qt. box would be nice.
Having family members with MSG allergies is what prompted me to start making my own stock. Slowly I started finding stocks/broths with no MSG added but the taste was not always true. I re-order this often so I can always have it on hand in my pantry.
Love this broth because it’s a good tasting healthy one which I love to use when I am making soups. Better than using water even in chicken soup.
Great broth is low in sodium and healthy heart. We use it all the time. I would highly recommend this product.
I buy this Imagine brand or Kroger’s Naturally Preferred brand organic free range chicken broth which is exactly the same thing (depending on which is on sale) at my local Kroger store in quart size containers – 32 oz. I wish Amazon stocked it in 32 oz. containers at a competitive price. A 16 oz. container would never do for us.
It is absolutely wonderful for soups of any kind, from chicken noodle with veggies added to vegetable soup to bean soup or whatever. Since we do not eat beef or pork I use this broth as the base of everything that needs broth. I also use small quantities of it to ‘quick saute’ veggies, per the recommendation on whfoods.org and it works as well as oils which break down when heated.
Heated in a pan by itself it is not so good. However, since we don’t eat “plain” anything, in my opinion this is THE best broth with no potato starch, bad oils or MSG.
this is delicious! we go through it quickly at our house. it’s a staple in my pantry and i panic when we are running low. get it!
As I make a lot of soups during the winter months I like having these extra boxes of broth on my shelves-just add you meat and veggies with the broth and let it stew for a few hours in your crock-pot or on the stove, put bread on the table and there it is, a yummy tasty meal thats good for you! so many snow days to enjoy soup/stew and not having to worry that you forgot/forget the broth when you go to th store.

For those occasions when you need to cook in a hurry, it works wonderful for me. The ingredients are good, too. No hidden added msg.
