It seems no matter where we turn, some sort of “bomb” is blanketing our social media feed. Of course, you can get an aromatic bath bomb for a relaxing soak in the tub (or maybe something a little scarier for Halloween) Or, maybe you prefer enjoying a drink made with a tea bomb, cocktail bomb or hot cocoa bomb.

Now, there’s a new culinary challenger looking to go viral in the kitchen. Broth Bomb seasoning mixes are one company’s way of creating massive flavor explosions this fall in your steamy pot of soup. They started out as a Kickstarter campaign in 2019, but are now available at retail.

One look at this video retweeted by the official Broth Bomb Twitter account certainly had us curious to find out more about these fizzy, dissolving orbs of spices.

This Broth Bomb is one of eight different flavors available from the company’s online store. You can buy each one individually for $5.99 each, get a starter pack of 4 bombs for $23.95 or spring for the complete set, which is currently listed on the website for $39.99. Shipping costs get added based on each order’s location, but the website lists free shipping for orders more than $23.

You can also get them on Amazon for those same prices individually or as a set.

Each box makes a large quantity of soup, so make sure to check the label when making your favorite recipes. The website says each Broth Bomb makes about a gallon of stew or 16 restaurant-sized bowls of food.

Most of the Broth Bombs are listed as vegan and gluten-free and many are also nut-free and soy-free. Check each flavor for a full description of ingredients and allergy restrictions.

Here’s a rundown on all the Broth Bombs flavors available:
