    If you're looking for a deep dark rich broth, Kitchen Basics is it. It is better than my homemade broth that I used to make before KB. This is true for all of their broths.

    This is the best chicken broth around. Swanson is garbage next to this product. It doesn't have too much fat and it's probably the nearest thing to homemade that you'll taste.

    Thank you for creating such flavorful and healthy cooking stocks. The chicken and beef are delicious without the added yeast found in most other stocks. For those of us who are sensitive to yeast, it is a real plus. I always have them on hand and recently purchased the vegetable stock to try in my next pot of soup. Thanks again.

    More and more doctors are telling people not to eat products out of a box, can or bag.. too much sodium. You really need more products like this! People can always add salt.. but you can't take it out!

    Did you recently add food coloring? The stock used to be of a normal broth color, now, its of a very pronounced yellow color. Why would you do that? I have been using all kitchen basic stocks for years, but I do not understand why you felt the need to pollute a perfectly good product with food coloring. Would be 5 stars without it. Now all my food looks weird because of the yellow coloring, and I'm frankly not sure I'll keep on buying it. Depends if I can get used to it.

    Recent changes in this product have turned it into a muddy orange mess that tastes less like chicken and more like a bad vegetable broth. Just ruined a pot of fresh lima beans with it. I was a long time fan but no more. Please change it back!

    Extremely disappointed with what you have done to the Kitchen Basics chicken stock. It's now an unappealing yellowish - orange color that appears cloudy . I'm not sure why you felt the need to take one of the best, if not the best Chicken Stocks and attempt to fix something that didn't need fixing. What a shame. Unfortunately, I will now have to seek another brand. Brilliant job McCormick - thanks for ruining a good thing.

    McCormick must have bought the product. Now there is natural flavor in the label which equals MSG. I'm sure it's cost savings and mass production for them. The original brand had no natural or artificial flavoring and was the only one I could use as a migraine sufferer. I bought it for years, but no more. Big business ruins everything for profit.

    What is the natural flavor now on the label? Food allergies and used to use this all the time. Bought a CASE and now the ingred. include "natural flavor"...cannot use the product unless those items are listed. Very disappointed.

    It seems McCormick purchased the product and now adds natural flavors, which equals MSG. So, the ingredients have changed and I will not be buying. It was the only one I could buy as a migraine sufferer. Big business ruins everything.
