Reviews for Low-Fat Gravy
"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."
"Did anybody taste this before posting it? It has only a hint of flavor from the broth. It's not worth the effort."
"Shouldn't be any fat in it if you're using fat free broth."
"Huh! For a lousy gram, I'd cheat like the FDA and call it Non-Fat! Thanks!"
