You can drink the broth found in cans and cartons, especially if you're not salt-sensitive. Basically, it's chicken noodle soup minus the noodles. What you get out of vending machines isn't much different from bouillon cubes.
I have a bunch of homemade turkey stock that I made right after Thanksgiving using a turkey carcass. When I want to have a really rich soup, I mixha Progresso-type can of soup with an equal amount of frozen turkey stock and nuke that in the microwave.
Unjury makes a hot Chicken Soup flavor "protein drink". It ain't wonderful, but the strong salt/MSG flavor and a hint of chicken flavor makes it an acceptable standin for those of us sick of chocolate and vanilla milk shakes. (I wonder how it would be cut with homemade chicken stock?)
They do make low sodium versions of the canned broths.
