Campbell's Organic Chicken Broth US Equivalent

I don't know what section to put this into. If there is a better place, let me know. My sister is a huge fan of the Campbell's Organic Free Range Chicken Broth (I am not allowed to post URLs based on my post count, otherwise I'd provide a link) which is sold in Canada. She can't find it here in the states. I did see a similar product branded by Swanson (Swanson is owned by Campbell's) but I can't tell if it is the same thing. Does anyone know of where to purchase either the Canadian version or its equivalent product here in the states?

Maybe buy a chicken(s) and make your own is an option!

Of course and I don't think she's against that. But I do think she's interested in the convenience of the packaged stuff. Anyways, the packaged stuff tastes "Just like mom's" according to her.

I have never seen canned broth products with the Campbell's name on it in the USA. I do see Swanson;s broth products of all kinds in cans and cartons. They also have a chicken stock in a carton.

I've never seen Campbell's stock or brother either. It seems there are just two choices around here, Swansons and College Inn.
Tell her to try Swanson's stock (not broth). I like it a lot for gravies and soups.

Maybe the same product! Swanson has a good reputation, so this may fit the bill for convenience purposes --

Have Fun & Enjoy!

I usually make my own but it's handy to keep a few cans or cartons on hand for emergency use. Living in Costa Rica, I've never seen the Campbells or Swansons organic free-range broths in the supermarkets here but they do stock Pacific Naturals, which is excellent and I usually keep a few cartons in my pantry. Considering the quality, it's fairly priced in the States. Of course, I pay much more for it here.

Give it a try. I think you'll like it. Here's the product info: Pacific Natural Foods Our Foods Broths Natural Free Range Chicken Broth. If you don't find it in your supermarket, you can buy it from Amazon.com (24 8oz. pouches for $18.66).

I'm sure that Campbells has chicken and beef broths in with their soups. It's concentrated and comes in the small red and white cans.

I am not sure how far you are from the closest Whole Foods, but they would have the best selection.

I think cambel's chicken broth came in a can just like their soups but I can't recall seeing it around in many many years. Then again it was in NYC, and NYC stores have many more chioces than we have up here in the sticks.
