It used to be difficult to find bone broth in grocery stores. Of course, the shelves were full of broth and stock, including bullion cubes, but about a year or two ago, bone stock started making room for itself.
It is lauded in the Whole30, Paleo, and Keto communities as a great way to get protein, amino acids, and nutrients.
First off, you may be asking yourself
Why Is Bone Broth So Healthy?
Remember when you were a kid and didn't feel well? If you came down with a bad cold or flu, mom or grandma would wrap you in a blanket and make you chicken soup.
This homemade soup would cook on the stove for hours and it tasted amazing- better than the canned version.
Cooking this type of stock all day, especially when using bones with vegetables, helped to pull out every bit of protein and minerals from the bones. These health benefits were passed on to you with every spoonful giving you a boost of vitamins and nutrients you needed to help your immune system.
So, now businesses are taking advantage of these health benefits and packaging up their version of broth for folks like us.

Does Walmart Sell Bone Broth?
Yes! Each time I visit Walmart, I see more brands offered on the shelves. But did you know that you can also find this in the frozen food section?
A few stores will carry personal serving sizes in the freezer which tells me this is probably fresh, hence the reason it is frozen.
Here is probably a good point to list our 7 top picks for places to shop for this special stock. Some of our choices are brick and mortar stores and a couple are online businesses.
A few shopping tips to get you started:
- Bone broth will be located in the aisle that has all the stock, broth and bullion, usually near all the canned soups.
- Make sure to look for the word “Bone Broth” on the label. It can be easy to miss!
- Fresh bone broth/stock can be found in the freezer section. The placement varies with each store, so if it is hard to find, just ask someone!
