Yeah, I know, but WHY aren't there any? I can buy bouillon (as cubes or as powder) in beef, chicken, vegetable, even fish flavors.

Most annoying. The lack of pork bouillon cubes, I mean.

Look in the ethnic food aisle of your grocery store. I think I've seen it with the Mexican food, but I've never bought it.

They exist, I saw them at an asian grocery, right next to the lemon grass soup boullion cubes.
Fools! Did they think that the yieldlessness of absolute neutronium could stop QADGOP THE MERCOTAN? And that human wench Cynthia, cowering in helpless terror just beyond this thin and fragile wall...

They have 'em in England. I remember a comic strip in VIZ about 15 years ago about a kid who dressed up in a superhero outfit and squirted people with instant pork stock.

You'll notice that most American soups are based on beef, chicken, or fish stock. And canned stocks and broths such as College Inn don't offer a pork-based selection, either.

I would think that most peoples idea of "Pork flavoring" would be akin to bacon or ham, can't you get the same flavor from salt and smoke flavoring?

BTW; what's up with "flavored" Ramen noodles? They come in beef, pork, chicken and shrimp but they all taste like salt and Mrs. Dash, do these companies think we're stupid?

Dunno about you mojo, but they all taste different to me. Maybe you're putting in too much water?

Check your Asian or Hispanic food markets. I have been using pork bullion cubes for over twenty years. There is a type made by Knorr that is pretty good.

I use ham bouillion when I make beans. Look in the Mexican aisle for a box of jamon packets.

I'm pretty sure that I have seen bacon stock cubes (and garlic - which I nabbed)

You can buy them online here. (Link does not imply recommendation of site, just first Google result I clicked.)
