"Better Than Bouillon" Sightings?

MMRuth Oct 25, 2008 12:44 PM

I went to Citarella today - looking for the chicken one - and they told me they no longer carry this. Dean & Deluca on Madison doesn't either, though I'd swear I'd bought it at both places in the past. Has any one seen it in stores lately?

      I'll post back too if I find it - I'll check out my dreaded Food Emporium!

        Nope. Not Fairway. At least, not the UWS one. Looked just a couple of days ago. Not there.

          I've bought it before at Fairway on the UWS. Not recently, but they have definitely carried it. If I recall correctly it was in a weird location -- not with the chicken broth on the register side of the store. Maybe it was near the salad dressings on the other side? Or over by the mustards?

            It was on a shelf in the same aisle as the mustards on the non-register size. I haven't looked for it recently but I guess they stopped carrying it.

              Ooops. Sorry. Didn't look near the mustards. Looked where the Knorr products were. How un-Fairway-like of me.

                Was in Fairway tonight and happy to report that several varieties were in stock. They are in the aisle with the mustards on the non-register side, above the Near East brand of instant cous cous and rice.

          I also hate Food Emporium, but yes, it does carry BtB -- at least at its B'way location near 90th St. and Kips Bay locations.

          They carry it at Whole Foods in CA although Trader Joe's no longer does.

            Thanks - I'm due for a Whole Foods visit to stock up on some other things and will check it out.

              What else do you stock up on Whole Foods on your jaunts there? I am currently battling an addiction to their house-brand Dulce de Leche Meringue Cookies. I also buy Sullivan Street bread because I cannot find this near me..

                Just got back from the Chelsea location (further from us than the TW Center one, but much easier to load up the car). I now have two jars of Better than Bouillon organic chicken stock - they also had the vegetarian one.

                Our main reason for going is to purchase their 365 brand sparkling Italian mineral water (less than $1.00 a bottle). I also buy butter, and generally find their dairy prices quite reasonable, their 365 brand peanut butter, canola oil mayonnaise (I've been buying the 365 brand recently by mistake, but actually the one I think is good is the Spectrum one), boneless chicken thighs, smoked trout. Today they had cans of San Marzano brand tomatoes on sale for two for five dollars, so I got some of those (note, they are not Italian San Marzano, but I like them, and paid $5.50 and Dean and Deluca yesterday - ARGH). I sometimes pick up some meat there as well. I find their cheese very expensive.

                  Always interesting to hear what others buy and where! Prices in their dairy case are excellent. Total yogurt is one of my usual buys there. I just wish there was one further uptown/east!

                    I am too late in my response, but just for reference, I bought Better than Bouillon past Friday from Fairway on 125 st. That location can be a hike for you but atleast they have parking!

                      Thanks - good to know - we do have a car, but don't go there very often.

                        Several flavors, including chicken, on sale now at Whole Foods. Spotted today at 14th Street..

                They also carry it at the Amish Market in Hell's Kitchen.

                  They carry it at the Met, many locations all over the city.

                    And a friend of mine told me she bought the mushroom one at Fairway this week.

                    They sell it all varieties of it at Pacific Market in Brooklyn (Pacific/Court). And I believe Garden of Eden carries.

                        Commodities sells it. It's on First Avenue between 10th and 11th Streets.
