What People Say

  • "Your sardines in olive oil are outstanding and nothing compares to them ... better than the fresh charcoal broiled sardines I had in Morocco.” – Artemis Simopoulos, M.D., author of The Omega Diet
  • "... these are the BEST sardines I have ever eaten!” Jean Singer, Eustis, FL
  • "A clean tasting fish. No fishy taste or after taste. Oil taste is very subtle and almost hidden. A meaty, tender fish. I would eat again.” Rating: 4.5 sardines (out of 5)” – Drew, author of the Mouthful of Sardines blog

"Sardines" Dean on 09/24/2020 06:37 Review: These babies are really good I've purchased quite a few times. I wish VC would allow better free shipping as I always have to buy extra items in order to get free shipping.
