Hello strangers! I have been away for a bit because life has been crazy with Easter and everything. Now that life has calmed down a bit I am here to bring you some great reviews! Today I'm reviewing Knorr® Homestyle Stock which was provided to me for review by Smiley360.com.
Knorr® Homestyle Stock is a concentrated stock made with carefully selected ingredients. I got the chicken flavor to review.
I also received a booklet full of a few recipes to try if I wanted however I had already planned out a menu for that week so I decided to incorporate the stock into my already planned menu. Let's face it, if you're a busy mom like me you aren't always going to plan an entire meal around one ingredient so I decided to throw some of the stock into our side dish that night, which just so happened to be a big pot of leafy green kale! We love kale at our house and we usually add some sort of stock to it anyway so we thought we would give it a try. The stock itself comes in a cute little tub with a little chicken on the top.
I was delighted to find that each tub makes 3-1/2 cups of broth so we started out just adding one tub to our kale but ended up using two tubs in the end. The stock inside the tub is a jelly like consistency and comes out solid.
Where to Buy:
You can find Knorr® Homestyle Stock in the broth aisle at your local supermarket retailer.
My Initial Impression: I love the packaging on this product! Not only is the outer packaging bright and colorful I just love the little tubs with the chicken on top! The tubs are easy to open and the product comes out easily. I was a little put off initially because of the texture of the stock (jelly-like) but it concentrated so it's okay.
Pros: Colorful packaging and cute little tubs, smells yummy. Tastes yummy too!
Cons: The flavor was a little muted for being a concentrated stock. I had to add two tubs in order to taste it and later when I added it to rice I had to add two tubs as well.
Final Impression: Overall I enjoyed the Knorr® Homestyle Stock and I may eventually try it in an actual recipe to see if I can bring out the flavors a little more. I have some coupons so I am planning on purchasing the product again in the future. I would recommend this product if you use stock in your cooking a lot like I do.
