MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 9, 2012

Well yes, it wasn't the equivalent to "rich gravy", but for those on restricted diets, it might be a treat rather than nothing at all.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2012

Did anybody taste this before posting it? It has only a hint of flavor from the broth. It's not worth the effort.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 24, 2008

Shouldn't be any fat in it if you're using fat free broth.
