I just used BTB-chicken flavor, for lunch. a half tsp added to cream of mushroom soup, thined with milk, yum. Unfortunately, the only flavors I've found in my neck of the woods are chicken, sometimes turkey, beef, and ham. The chicken and beef are readily available. The others, I see once in a great while. (heavy sigh). It's the best tasting soup base that I've found, at least for my tastes. Home made will always be better, but takes a lot longer to make. BTB i good for when you don't have the time.

Puffin, I'm curious how you use the lobster flavor? The only time we eat lobster it's the main event without leftovers. I suppose it would be good for lobster bisque but beyond that, I can't think of how I'd use it.

Kay, I'm thinking clam chowdah, gravy for baked fish, bouilliabase, other soups, shrimp boil.

I just noticed that I'm running low on BTB low sodium chicken stock. Time for a Costco run.

I tried BTB and found I ran out of it much quicker than the granulated kind, which I prefer over the cubes.

Now they've come out with powdered chicken or beef base. I'm not sure it's an improvement over the granulated. I think I prefer to stay with the granulated.

I HATE the cubes!

Hmm, I'm thinking Fish Sauce would be a better choice instead of specifically lobster flavored BTB.

I'm actually wanting the ham one. I know I'd really use that one for the smoky factor alone.

Hm. I love my fish sauce, but it would be a totally different flavor, being made from fermented anchovies. Looking forward to experimenting with the lobster stuff!
