I love "Better Than Bouillon", it comes in a jar and is condensed & paste like. Its way easier and less wasteful (you use like 3tbs in water, as opposed to 3 cups of can/boxed stuff) The price varies a little. If you have a Trader Joe's near, they have chicken or beef flavor for a few dollars, but if you need the vegetarian version (that's the only one I've tried) you can get it at most healthfood markets. I don't know if its the cheapest, but its the cheapest way I've found. Its also yummy to add to home cooked beans or grains. Hope this helps
