As my husband and I continue our quest to decrease dairy and increase plants, we are looking for those unique products that provide the full taste experience we’ve enjoyed most of our lives. Sour Cream is one of these. This product, while promising, misses on texture and lacks on taste. The texture is too stiff, more like cream cheese and simply lacks the tangy, zesty, smooth and cooling sensation we remember from the dairy based product. I hope TJ’s will soon offer the sour cream produced by the Good Karma company.
Unfortunately, this vegan sour cream did not taste nor feel like regular sour cream. I did not expect it to be identical, but it is quite bland and does not even taste similar. It is also very thick and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste.
Extremely thick More like the consistency of ricotta. Would be great for stuffing shells, lasagna or a spread (add your own spices). Taste is pretty good but I’d recommend it for other uses as I said and add your own flavors!
This is absolutely divine with a creamy texture to add to baked potatoes and also to use as a vegan cream cheese on bagels.. I love the texture and flavor. This one is a favorite!

vile. Almost makes me gag. Tastes like something died in there. Much prefer the Tofutti.
I think it tastes pretty decent as a dairy free option. Consistency is thicker but once mixed up is smooths out more. Rather have this option than nothing at all.
Absolutely terrible. As a proud Vegan, I’d be ashamed to introduce this product to my dairy eating friends. Kite Hill’s version is delicious, no clue what went so terribly wrong here.

I like the taste but what’s with the “hard top “ I don’t think my first one I purchased has it so I returned my second one to buy another one only to find it has a hard top section again I tried mixing it in bit it just gets hard clumps , I really like the taste. And like that it has minimal ingredients and no soy and nuts because I’m allergic to cashews and beta carotene and nutritional yeast so lots of vegan products are out for me which is so hard! I will still buy this just have to toss the hard shelled top off I guess!
