What this product is ideal for is when you have a recipe that calls for a few cups of broth - risotto, saute, couscous, etc, etc, etc. When I use it I usually omit any other salt my recipe calls for, and the saltiness of the final dish comes out perfectly.
I noticed some of the less than positive reviews don't like the taste of the broth by itself. I will say, the flavor is very different than many/most store bought stocks and bouillon cubes. It is very rich and meaty, and tastes like a roasted chicken, WITHOUT vegetables or spices other than salt. This is just pure chicken flavor, and some may be off put by that -- my mother for instance isn't a big fan - she likes her chicken stock to be very vegetabley.
So, if you like a full, meaty chicken (and only chicken) stock, I highly recommend this. If you want something with more vegetable flavor, look elsewhere. Personally, I love it.
Mixing a cup of hot water with one packet revealed an enticing aroma and a beautiful chickeny-beige color stock. The taste was phenomenal: enough lip-smacking gelatin to give it body but it also had rich depth and a full flavor profile that screamed "CHICKEN".
I pitted Savory Choice against my own broth (long simmered carcasses with fully intact wings and plenty of meat and connectives, carrot, onion, celery, and bay, de-fatted overnight and re-heated to a simmer), as well as Swanson Organic. Amongst my family (admittedly, a too-small statistical sample), the Savory Choice beat the Swanson easily, but surprisingly it also edged out my home-made broth.
Combine that extraordinary flavor with amazing shelf-convenience and you got a winner. I'm a total convert!
Kidding aside I *really* wanted to love this product. I typically use canned broth or make my own from scratch, a time consuming process. Savory Choice Chicken Broth Concentrate is not vile by any means but has what I can only describe as a "sweaty sock" taste to it. I've tried to adapt to it but keep coming to the conclusion that my palate simply finds it offensive. The sodium content is also outrageous: one packet, equivalent to 1 cup of broth contains 770mg of salt- ouch.
I'd still consider this in a pinch instead of a bullion cube but it's not as good as canned broth.

This stuff is wonderful. Used to get it in Trader Joe's, but they stopped stocking it so here I am on Amazon, thank goodness. I also buy the beef and turkey concentrates. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Valerie
Best broth you could ever use. Not salty like others. On cold nights, heat it in a cup of water in the micro, then relax and sip it. Oh so good and warming.Published on July 8, 2014 by NDNWIFE

I love this product and use it all the time. First, salt is NOT the first ingredient, and since it is a liquid it dissolves very quickly and completely.Published on May 30, 2013 by Vickie
