New Signature Chicken Base
We have exciting news!
After two years of trial and error, we have finally created our very own signature chicken base! We started to make our own vegetarian beef and vegetable flavors in early 2012 but for some reason, the perfect chicken base eluded us for an extra two years.
A Chicken Base Journey
Our taste-testers, friends, and family in the tiny community of Thorp, trudged through bowl after bowl of chicken broth. As we progressed the descriptions changed from salty water to something you would buy in the store, to where we are now, a broth that 10 out of 10 people say makes our soups taste even better.
At the end of November, we realized our recipe was completed, there was just one thing left to do. For the final challenge, we put the new broth up against its toughest critics, the Rill Family, and die-hard Rill Foods fans. We made each soup and gave out the samples. Each time people said “even better than before”, “wow, so much flavor”, “now, this is tasty” and “this has always been my favorite soup but now it’s even better”.
Not only is this new base delicious but it is also more natural, healthier, and has less salt. Below you can read the ingredients of the new chicken base (first) and the previous base (second). In an effort to remove high-risk GMO foods we’ve also made the chicken base, along with our beef and vegetable, without corn or soy. So you can feel better about feeding them to your family.
