Better Than Bouillon - The Best Soup Bouillon Available!

I am so excited about today's foodie review and giveaway that I am doing the happy dance here in my own home! Today I am going to talk to you about a product called Better Than Bouillon made by a company called Superior Touch out of the great state of California.

Better Than Bouillon is a concentrated paste that is primarily made out of meat, seafood or vegetables. This gives the product a richer, more natural flavor than ordinary icky bouillon cubes or bouillon granules that most of us are used to using.
I was recently sent 3 jars of Better Than Bouillon to try out for all of you. I received the Reduced Sodium Beef Base, the Reduced Sodium Chicken Base and the regular Turkey Base. To use these bouillon bases you simply dissolve 1 teaspoon of the base in 8 ounces of boiling water. Once it is dissolved you use it just like any bouillon stock.I first used the Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base to make a huge pot of homemade chicken potpie for my family's dinner a few nights ago. I followed my normal recipe but used this base in the amount called for in my recipe once I dissolved it as explained above. I then served the potpie to my family and everyone agreed it was a hit! Normally we find most bouillon's too salty...especially chicken bouillon's but this was absolutely perfect and it tasted fabulous!
The following day I placed a large beef roast into my crockpot along with some chopped onions, carrots, green peppers, potatoes and onions and that day I used the Better Than Bouillon Beef Base to make a nice "beef" broth for my roast to slow cook in. About 6 hours later I got everything out of the crockpot and served it to my family. Again, everyone loved the dinner. My husband who loves beef couldn't get over how juicy our beef roast was and how delicious it tasted. This was his favorite bouillon that we tried!

I didn't get a chance to use the Better Than Bouillon Turkey Base just yet but in a week or so I am going to make some home turkey dumplings and use it and I am sure it will taste just as delicious as the two we have already tried!

We highly recommend the Better Than Bouillon products to you! I will never go back to using bouillon cubes, canned bouillon or bouillon granules again! These products are awesome and they are better than the other stuff we used to use!

I would like to thank the folks over at Better Than Bouillon for sending me the items to review and for sponsoring a giveaway here on the Shakin and Bakin Foodie Blog!

I had heard of the Better than Bullion, and finally saw it at the grocery store. I'm wondering how their taco spices taste. The crock pot packets look interesting too!
