Chicken Broth/Beef Broth

I want to make a semi-homemade soup/stew and am looking through the market's already made chicken and beef stocks. I'm not sure which one's are good. Does anyone have a brand that they recommend? I'm not really looking for one that has added sugar/sweetener or msg in it. Thanks so much for your suggestions!

I am a fan of Kitchen Basics Natural Cooking Stock. I far prefer it to bullion (tends to be too salty and often contains gluten, msg and sugar which are no-no's for many of the folks I cook for). IMO it is more flavorful than Swanson's and comes in a handy re-sealable container so you can keep it on hand. I like their chicken very well, but my fave is their vegetable broth - very flavorful! I really like to use it when poaching fish, steaming veggies, making rice or as a base for a light sauce.

I have a container of the chicken stock and these are the ingredients....

Chicken stock, chicken flavor, sea salt, honey, vegetable stocks (carrot, onion, muchrooms, celery), bay, thyme, pepper.
