Winter favorites

There is something about chicken broth that I find comforting and familiar. That is probably a common feeling for some of us. I truly enjoy the College Inn Brand Broth for quite a few reasons. I love the flavor of it. It isn't too salty, the way powdered bullion is. It also lacks nothing in flavoring. It isn't bland in taste. It has a very warming full bodied flavor to it. It is also about 10 calories a cup. A great little snack to tide you over between meals without maxing out on calories. I also enjoy cooking with it. I marinade my thanksgiving turkey in it for 24 hours in the chicken broth prior to cooking it. I never have a dry turkey when using College Inn Chicken Broth. It is very inexpensive as well. I tend to keep some on hand for the majority of the fall and winter months. Overall, there are many ways to use College Inn Broth and I enjoy using it on a regular basis. I feel confident in saying I will continue to use this product for a very long time.

Great all purpose broth

I can't remember where I purchased this but you can't find it everywhere. It's a great tasting, all purpose store bought broth. I prefer it to several other brands I've tried. It's great for replacing the water when cooking rice. It adds a lot of flavor to many different dishes. I highly recommend it.

Pantry staple for the winter time

I have tried many chicken broths from the can and I still buy others when it is cheaper, but if I had to choose I will still pick College Inn's chicken broth.  I find other ones tinny flavor if that makes sense, and does not have that nice inherent sweetness from the chicken when you boil it down.  Of course nothing beats homemade, but in a pinch it will do. As I consider it as one of my staples for the pantry for those days you want a stew or soup or just a simple broth for the winter times when you have colds.  It doesn't have that many herbs in swimming around but you can always add those and fresh ones will have a crisper flavor anyways.  This works well as a simple broth to drink on its own as its the family preferred choice and is flavorful when using it as a quick soup base for making some chicken noodle soup.  It holds it's own against different ingredients and doesn't get washed away as it retains it rich, sweet flavor and is not too salty when cooking making it easy to adjust for the dish you're making.

A review of Chicken Broth??

4

I can't believe that they are actually looking for a review of College Inn Chicken Broth but they are so, since I use it regularly, I will oblige.  I am not a gourmet cook by any means but I do alright for a self-taught Scottish woman.  I like to coook a variety of simple dishes for me and my family and many of these require chicken broth.  It is a great ingredient that is tasty and adds some flavor and consistency to dishes.  It is slightly salty but works very well with other ingredients that include a wide range of everyday ingredients.  It is best used for soup and I love to make soup.  Open the can and voila...it cranks the soup up a notch.  I also use it for chicken dishes like Marsala and Cordon Blue and it is very reliable.  You can save a few cents and get the store brands but this one does the trick and has so for years so I continue to "splurge".  I feel that it makes my homemade soupd better than thiose that I could buty in the stores.

College Inn Chicken Broth a rich home cooked taste.

College Inn Chicken Broth has so many uses and it is a must have staple in my pantry. I cook "from scratch" everyday for my family. I believe it is important to give them the best and healthiest ingredients possible. College Inn is very flavorful and gives all my recipies that made from scratch taste. If you have ever made your own chicken broth you know the hours and labor it takes, with College Inn all that is done for you. My family cannot tell the difference. With a busy schedule, getting dinner on the table as fast as possible is very important. Having this wholesome ingredient is a pure staple. Its uses are never ending, it can go from "homemade chicken and noodles" to stir fry. Use it any place that you would like that extra bang of flavor. College Inn is also very economical for that kitchen that works on a budget. It is impossible to make a quality product at home for the price you pay for College Inn. I come from a long line of wonderful home cooks in our family; we believe that food brings the family together.  I can remember as a little girl standing beside my grandmother on the farm making homemade noodles and a wonderful chicken broth.  She used to tell me that she would only use College Inn brand as it stood the test of time with her friends and family. Now as a grandmother myself, we raise our own meat and vegetables on the same farm, I would not serve just any ready made broth to my family. I take personal pride in the quality of food that I serve my family. I love hearing my granddaughter say "mmmm Mimi, more please". I know as I share my secrets in the kitchen with her as I did with her mom, the tradition of good for you food will carry on. My personal  favorite during cold and flu season I make a recipe my kids call Moms Medicine. It is a quart of College Inn chicken broth,  1 cooked and shredded chicken breast, 1 carrot sliced thin, 1 rib of celery sliced thin. Put all in a large soup pan and cook until vegetables are soft. Serve with some saltine crackers and hot tea.  Usually, after a good bowlful of Moms Medicine everyone starts feeling better.  Sometimes a bowl of soup with cure anything.

Salty and metallic in flavor

3

The price was right on the College Inn chicken broth, but you get what you pay for.  It wasn't a horrible experience.  But I found the broth to taste slightly metallic and entirely too salty.  I am very glad I tasted the broth before adding it to my recipe, as I had to completely omit the salt from the dish.   I will not buy this again if my normal broth is available to buy.  However, I can live with it if my favorite one was out of stock when I needed to buy it.

great starter ingredient for any dish!

I like knowing that I can add flavor to just about any dish without having to add extra calories! I am very excited about the new flavor--with coconut. It will probably be great as a base for a veggie soup!!

Outstanding

     This broth is one of my favorates.  It works well with almost any ingrediant and is great with spices.  You will need to watch for the sodium content, its pretty low and it is ver, very salty.  This broth makes a lovely base for soup and has great flavor.  This is only havlf of the reasons why I like this so much.  You will have to cook it yourself because the company belives that homemade soup is economical, but the tase alone will blow you away.  This is a great replacemnt for water becasue it is thicker and has a better texture with salts and spices.  Homemade soup is healtheir, that is why they make you make your own soup and is very low in calories.  This is a great clear liquid diet option sice it is so healthy.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               I am writing this for gaia.....

College Inn Chicken Broth Tastes Great!

5

College Inn Chicken Broth tastes great! I bought this because it was less expensive than the more popular brands. I was sceptical because at that time I had not heard of the brand. It tastes no different than the more expensive brands. I was surprised because I think it tastes better and is much less expensive! Overall, I would buy again and again!
