Do you use a product like Gravox to make your gravy?

I have never had Gravox in my house, and strongly dislike it.
There are not many foods I dislike but this tastes so "flase" to me and has the same taste with every gravy -obivously.

I far prefer a smaller amount of the natural gravy that comes out of meat or chicken, and I LOVE bread dipped in this-hmmm -shame I am part vegetarian...

Neither my parents nor myself have ever used these products.My son who is now a chef,asked me when he was about 7 why the 'gravy' in shops which his friends had with chips tasted so awful!! IWhen we went home I showed him how I make REAL gravy,and told him that this is how it has always been done in my home!! We found one really special snack bar which always had proper pan-juice gravy and it was the only place he would EVER buy chip with Gravy!! He told the owner that she was the only person who made gravy like his mum,and she was so thrilled!! As she told him,if you are going to have gravy it must be the real thing!!
I have packet gravy for convenience.

If I make gravy it's mushroom gravy. I suppose there's a Gravox equivalent for vegetarians but I haven't tried anything like that.
I use packet gravy, but add Tuscan herbs.
It is quite ok then.
I also use a little oil from the meat.
We don't have gravy more than 4-5 times a year.

Yes, I can't remember the last time I made gravy from the pan juices like Mum and Nan used to do. I can remember Nan standing over the old wood stove stirring the juices around in the roasting pan. Not in all my days have I turned out a roast that is anywhere near as good as hers.
Not for years have I made gravy! When I used to I did use a little gravox dissolved in water and then added to pan juices..

sometimes use gravox combined with the meat drippings
Use packet gravy mixes into pan residue. Tastes delish, with all the lovely meat juices!
Never had it in the house. Got laughed at when at a kitchen tea playing games and could not pick what it was in a blind "feel" test.
