Vegetable Stock or Broth?

I do so much cooking and don’t always have the time to make my own broth or stock. I find store-bought, especially the Whole Foods brand 365 does the trick quite nicely, tasty and no msg. But what is the difference between stock and broth?
Vegetable broth is lighter in taste and color, where vegetable stock is darker in color and much richer and heavier in taste. In my experience, I found that using vegetable broth in my Butternut Squash and Potato Soup for example provides a better tasting soup than using vegetable stock.
The basic difference being that stock includes all the skins from the vegetables thus making for an earthier, robust taste. It’s a personal choice in the end, and when making soups, mine is vegetable broth.
