I am not some kind of caviar snob but I have had the very expensive down to lumpfish from the local grocery store. I was so surprised at the extremely fresh taste and mild flavor. It even had the "pop" of the expensive brands. What was so wonderful with this type is I could just get a little spoonful whenever I wanted instead of waiting for a special occasion.

This brand is not to salty, not to fishy. Great caviar taste with ample pop. The freshness is evident. I have bought this brand over and over and it's never let me down. I've introduced several friends and family members to caviar using this brand and it never fails to impress. Highly reccomended.

I love caviar and I've had some of the best and worst. This is one of the best and for the price it really can't be beat. The roe is small, has a very fresh taste, not too salty and has a perfect 'snap'. Great for everyday and special occasions.

This was an inexpensive luxury, but not of course, to be compared with the real thing .... which would have cost a great deal more.
My wife and I thought it good value - we did not expect it to taste like real caviar - and we will probably buy some similar products from the same company.

This Capelin Caviar was really quite good--I ate it by itself and with some cream cheese and melba rounds--one of my favorite ways to eat caviar--and it mixed really well with the whipped cream cheese. I prefer cream cheese to creme fraiche, but I like both. The package was very carefully and thoughtfully packed, with ice packs and cushioning, so the product arrive in perfect condition. It came with a gorgeous little mother-of-pearl spoon, that, while fragile, is beautiful and will be something I look forward to using with guests. It was very pretty. I balked a bit at the shipping & handling price at first, but seeing the care they put into it and realizing it was packaged to keep the the caviar at the absolute best possible condition for shipping without excessive cost, it was worth it.

If I had paid big bucks for this caviar, I might have been slightly disappointed--but only slightly--but at the price that is is, I'm totally impressed with the price vs. quality. It was just a 'touch' fishy smelling when I first opened it, but it was also not chilled (I had taken it from the packaging and couldn't wait to open it and see the quality until it chilled--and while it was shipped with ice packs, I live in Texas, and the packs were melted--BUT it wasn't burning hot/melting levels, which it very well could have been--it was just slightly warm) so it had a bit of a fishy smell to it, usually the sign of a poorer quality caviar. But after it chilled, there was no fishy smell to it at all. It was also quite salty--I realize anything with 620mg of sodium per serving is going to be salty, but there is overwhelming and then ordinary salty for caviar, and this one leaned to the 'saltier' side.

All by itself, it's just a tad too salty for ordinary tastes.

Size Name: 12 oz Verified Purchase
I basically grew up eating fresh Caspian sturgeon and caviar, until it became scarce in 1980's. Hence, I have first-hand knowledge of what the real stuff should look and taste like.

This arrives neatly packaged in bubble/cardboard, in glass jars with metal lids, and label states it's a product of Island. Shipping did not take long, only about 5 business days.

The taste and smell is unbelievably the very same taste/smell of the real thing. Texture is nice and pops, although quite a bit smaller than real stuff. Overall, try the old Russian method of eating this: Nice, firm slice of freshly baked white bread spread with butter - then thinly spread this caviar all over it. This is the way we've always ate it, and the experience is unbeatable. The worst thing you can do is put this on a dry, salty cracker. Or, eat it in any other way for that matter.

I ordered two jars at once and paid the same shipping, so it was $5 per jar. I am planning to order a lot more, probably 5 jars at a time. Supermarket sells real Osetra (sturgeon) caviar at $80 per 1.5 oz!!!! American caviar at $45 for 3oz!!! Come on guys, this is no rocket science - this stuff is the way to go. From now on, I'm totally sold and a loyal customer!

I agree that the shipping is too high. A little too fishy for my taste and I prefer larger eggs. Also, a previous reviewer is right about the green stool factor. Probably too much added color. It is what it is.
