good chicken stock concentrate

when i havent't got time to make chicken stock from scratch, i used to use the PC chicken stock concentrate and found it excellent. They don't make it any more - do any of you have a favourite brand of non-MSG containing concentrate?

  1. I use IMAGINE Organic Chicken Broth which has great flavour. It has a clean, home made chicken broth taste. I buy it at Highland Farms.

        Longo's carries Better Than Bouillon.

      2. I buy Pacific Organic Chicken Stock at Costco. Can't remember the price offhand, but it's much cheaper (6-pack) than in the supermarket or health food store.

        1. is OP looking for CONCENTRATE or ready to use??

          is imagine and/or pacific in concentrate form?

          i'd be interested in conentrate form as well!

            Pacific is definitely not concentrate. I use it to make risotto etc. It's quite good.

              I know the stock paste the OP is talking about. It used to be in the fridge near the bacon etc. It is a concentrate and came is a small screw top container. The Pacific is something different.

              The recommendation for the Better Than Bullion is a good alternative. I started using it as soon as I couldn't find the PC version. Still highly miffed that they stopped selling the PC though.

                I loved the PC Chicken Stock too. Turns out the supplier doesn't make it anymore...

                  I too was devastated when I couldn't find the PC product - I have been using it for years and loved it. I stocked up on Better Than Boullion at Wegmans, where it is about half the price as I have seen it here.
