Product Review: Knorr® Homestyle Stock

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.

Product Details:

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.

  1. I saw these at Wal-Mart the other day. The tubs look smaller than I was expecting, but I'm gonna give it a try once my kit arrives anyways.

  2. I tried this product too and felt the same way about it. I needed to add more cubes to get some flavor. I will try it again in another recipe.
