Pacific Foods Review & Giveaway

Organic Free Range Low Sodium Chicken Broth Cashew Carrot GingerAll Natural Hazelnut Chocolate

Pacific Natural Foods is a company that produces products I can feel good about consuming.  Visit their What We Believe page and find out what I mean.  But not only do I feel good about the ingredients that go into their products, their products also taste great.

I was recently sent some samples to try.  A few of my favorites are the three products pictured above.  I’ve been using their organic chicken broth for some time, but I really loved the creamy (but dairy free) cashew carrot ginger soup, and the chocolate hazelnut milk was a real treat.

Regarding allergens, their web site states the following.  The sentence in italics is mine.

Pacific Natural Foods does not produce products with eggs, sesame, shellfish, or peanuts in our facility.  We do produce products containing dairy, soy, tree nuts, and corn. (I believe wheat should also be on that list.) Every 24 hours, production shuts down for a total cleaning and sterilization of all equipment.  Complete cleaning and sterilization is also performed between runs of dairy and non-dairy items.

To further reduce potential for cross contamination, a thorough cleaning and flushing of all equipment also takes place after running any product containing allergenic ingredients.  The same cleaning is also performed between runs of non-organic and organic products to maintain the integrity of the organic ingredients.

You can read more at their FAQ page.  They also have a product information guide that makes it easy to find out if a product contains allergens, is gluten free, dairy free, vegan, etc.

The Giveaway: Pacific Natural Foods has offered to giveaway an assortment of soups and broths to FIVE winners.  The giveaway is limited to US residents.

    I’ve used their unsweetened original almond milk for quite a while now and love it! Would love to try some of those soups!

  2. Janet says

    I use their broths all the time. I’ve got a pretty busy schedule and usually don’t have time to make my own broths so it’s nice that I can pick up something on the fly that’s not only gluten free but comes from quality sources (free range chickens, no GMOs, organic, etc.).

  3. Shane says

    i LOVE their broth.. i actually use it to cheat when i’m making a gf gumbo. it adds a bunch of great flavor! i haven’t tried their other products (yet!)…

  4. says

    I’ve had the broth and the carrot ginger soup (which I liked a lot)! I am a chocoholic so when I saw the chocolate hazelnut milk I got really excited. It sounds like chocolate milk meets nutella – mmmm!

  5. says

    I’ve usesd their broth (I think they produce a no-chicken chicken broth which is quite delicious). I’ve also eaten a number of their soups, but I find that the flavors sometimes work and sometimes do not. Their faux milks are quite decent, but I’m not picky aobut them as I typically used them for baking rather than drinking.

  6. Mari says

    I’m a huge fan of this brand; I used to work at a natural foods warehouse, and the sales rep was the one that got me hooked on it. With multiple allergies, it’s hard sometimes to find a brand that won’t cause problems, and this one is it. I use the soups and broths frequently, especially the condensed soups. I didn’t know they made a nut milk, but now I have it on my list to try!

  7. Meredith says

    I keep meaning to try this product, it looks delicious, but when you are scraping corners to buy healthy GF food, trying a new product is risky! So I’d be super happy to try it and KNOW if I should add it in! LOL!@!

  8. Cheryl says

    I have tried some of their products and so far they have been great!
    I would like try some of their soups next because when cooking for two, something fast and easy is a real time saver.

  9. Andrea says

    I’ve tried a number of their products, and love them all! When I’m too busy to make my own almond milk, their unsweetened almond milk is a life saver…

    I have used the chicken broth before & have liked it. I haven’t tried any of the others… I might have to! :)

  11. Kathy says

    I have not tried any of their products yet. However, now that I know about them, I will look for them the next time I am at Whole Foods and/or my local health food store.

  12. Jennifer says

    I love their chicken broth–haven’t tried the soups yet, but would be willing if I won some! :)

  13. Jennifer says

    I already subscribe to your email updates! Thanks for the great blog!

  14. Marsha A. says

    I use their gluten free cream of mushroom soup to make green bean casserole topped with carmelized onions as a gluten free holiday side dish.

  15. Amber S. says

    I use their broths and have tried several of their milk alternatives. I would love the chance to try some other products though!

  16. joan says

    I use the broths all the time and would love to try out a few more of their soups and beverages. Yum!

  17. Charmaine says

    Love their gluten free soups and broths and use them in different ways — never tried their Chocolate Hazelnut – they don’t carry it in our area.

  18. Pat says

    I subscribe by email, no time for facebook.
    I have tried their products and agree with you they are great. I would like to try more of them though.

  19. Francisca W. says

    Tried their low sodium & regular chicken & beef broth– good stuff (chicken broth sold cheaper at BJs too–Northeast coast, at least).

    Bought a few of the soups (ex. mushroom, tomato); haven’t tried it yet.

    Never saw the diary product here; would definitely try it out if I see them on the shelves.

  20. Carmen E. says

    I have not tried any of their products, but it looks like something that would be yummy and healthy! :)

  21. Carmen E. says

    I subscribe via RSS! Love your blog and recipes!! (so does my hubby- he is super thankful for good GF food that doesn’t taste ‘weird’) 😉

  22. Melinda says

    I use their chicken broth on a regular basis. I’ve tried a lot of their soups and would love to try the chocolate hazelnut “milk” sometime.

  23. Colleen says

    I have tried their chicken broth – but would love try some of the dairy free soups.

  24. says

    Great giveaway! I occasionally use their broth if I don’t have any homemade, but I would love to try the soups too.

  25. Sara says

    I actually hadn’t heard of this brand before but I’d love to try it out

  26. Janis S. says

    I’ve used their vegetable broth and liked it. I went to their website and looked at the various products they make. I didn’t know they had so many products besides the broths and soups.

  27. Elaine says

    I am a big fan of Pacific Rim Soups and Broths. Will try the chocolate hazelnut milk if I see it at the store. I haven’t seen this product at the stores in my city yet.

  28. Randi says

    I use these soups. They are very good. I especially like the low sodium veggie soup.

  29. Andrea says

    I have no tried any of their products but would like to as I think I would feel better if I cut out gluten

  30. Jennifer says

    I’ve never tried any of their products, but I sure would like to! :)

    I have not tried these broths before, but they sound great! Would love to try them!

  32. Helen Vosburgh says

    I love their broths and would love to try the chocolate hazelnut drink:)

  33. kati says

    I’ve used Pacific Foods broth for a long time, but i’ve never tried the hazelnut milk or the cashew carrot ginger soup, although I’ve wanted to because they both sound delicious!
