    Hiya, recently I've had this real craving for something savoury. I can't stomach any of the soups and my CDC had run out of the vegetable flavouring... Is there anything similar I can buy in the shops that isn't packed with salt or carbs? I'm sure my old CDC told me there was one but I can't remember the name. Hope someone can help.

    Thanks xxx

    As if by chance I have some of the Marigold in the cupboard. I checked the salt content and it's not too bad, I've seen bottled water with more sodium in... I might text my CDC and see what she thinks.

    Woo hoo, my CDC just texted back asking what the salt content was, so I told her and she said it's fine, just not to have too much in one day. One or two cups at most. Off to have some now, ha ha knowing my luck I won't like it.

    hiya

    i use the marigold reduced salt one and it's fantastic. i don't like the cd one as it tastes too salty.

    i got mine in asda. i had to route around for it as it was behind the regular one.

    i think a few health food shops might stock it too.

    Hmm I'm still going to try and find the reduced salt one, just to be on safe side. But for now I'll just have one cup. By the way which Asda did you get it from?

    Tasha it's gorgeous. Exactly what the doctor ordered. And definitely cheaper than the CD stuff - get some.

    Just had a brain wave , as I have a tub of the CD veg mix and a tub of regular Boullion ... so I compared nutritional values .. the Bouillion has exactly the same salt and fat content as the CD one and actually has slightly less carbs :) so the normal one is fine girls :) and is yummy and cheap too am happy now :)

    It's so nice to have a savoury change. My CDC said she doesn't stock it because she thinks the CD one is too expensive when there are cheaper alternatives, but she said shed get them in if a client really wanted it. But I'm happy with my £1.40 Marigold. Just out of interest how much is the CD one and how big is the tub?
