Review: This is not great quality ikura. We defrosted the first batch and were disappointed with its texture. Tried with the second batch, and had the same experience.
Thank you for choosing Vital Choice. We are sorry to hear you are not happy with the Ikura.

"Packing date is 6 months ago!"Cindy T on 2/15/2020 11:33 AMRating:
Review: My shipment arrived with a packing date of 6 months ago. Everywhere I've researched states that salmon roe has a freezer life of 2 months. I defrost a 1-2 ounce portion of it in my refrigerator and it looks mushy. I'm very disappointed. - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in this product. We do have some special tips for thawing the ikura. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you today. Thank you!
"Excellent"Carolyn H on 11/24/2019 4:47 PMRating:
Review: I really enjoyed this product for a few reasons. First, it is shipped with dry ice & it was still frozen when it arrived at my door. I have ordered salmon roe from Amazon & it was tepid from the ice melting in its box by the time I got it. Secondly, the quality is there! The product is very good, & that is coming from some one who does not like salmon roe.
"Absolutely Amazing"Victor G on 6/13/2019 6:37 PMRating:
Review: I used to buy my salmon roe from a health food store. Eating caviar/roe was difficult at first. I ate it for the health benefits. I am not only used to it now, I actually love the taste it adds to eggs or steaks. I can honestly say that now I like the taste and consistency. When I found Vital Choice only I purchased this 6oz. jar because I wanted to see if there was any difference in taste (the one I used to purchase at the store was considerably cheaper per ounce). When I tasted the Vital Choice Wild Salmon Roe, I was blown away. The taste, consistency and freshness were so very clearly superior to the roe I used to buy at the health food store that I have now decided to purchase the 2.2 pound tray. This roe is absolutely amazing, if you like salmon roe in general.
"Excellent quality"Paul on 4/12/2019 6:28 PMRating:
Review: Really great quality Ikura. As this was my first order with VCS I checked reviews first and noticed a few less than good reviews, but now 6 jars in and ready to reorder the next 6, I don't think they were correct at all. This stuff is super flavorful and compared to what you get in a sushi restaurant in one order, I"ll take a six ounce jar any day for this price. Excellent shipping to boot!!
"Salty and fishy!"Denise on 3/10/2019 3:43 PMRating:
Review: This was way too fishy tasting and salty. I loved caviar at sushi places, but this stuff is just canny tasting. Very overpriced.

"Salmon Roe"Sheetal Sharma on 4/6/2018 3:30 AMRating:
Review: Excellent taste. Salmon roe has the highest bioavailable phospholipid content of any food that I know of. Our son enjoys it at sushi restaurants. But the quality here is far superior.
"Ikura Keta Salmon Caviar in Glass Jar"Alla R on 3/31/2018 5:58 AMRating:
Review: Ikura keta in glass jar
It is my second order from this company. I ordered 4 jars with 6 oz each of ikura Keta salmon caviar and it is not fresh and dry. It is a big disappointment because I need this caviar for the family holiday dinner. I am not sure if I got the old batch. In my first order I had 4 jars with 2 oz each jets salmon caviar which was not fresh and had a very strong fishi smell. In my first order was also 17oz tray of Sockeye salmon caviar, and it was very good. That is why I decided to try again caviar from Vital Choice. But now I got impression that caviar in jars is not fresh. - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in this product. Our Customer Service Team will follow up with you regarding this order. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team
"Ikura in glass jar"David C. on 3/27/2018 4:26 PMRating:
Review: After ordering a wide variety of items from Vital Choice, I’ve been impressed at the quality and consistency of their offerings except their Ikura. I’ve tried two of the three jars of ikura I ordered and found them both to be sodium laden and “fishy” in flavor. Not sure if I just got sent an old batch but unfortunately I wouldn’t order it again.
Hello David, We are very sorry to hear your disappointment in the Ikura Caviar. Our Customer Service Team would like to contact you shortly to discuss your order. Thank you, The Customer Service Team.

"very disappointed with my last order of ikura in the jars"Letta on 3/5/2018 10:01 AMRating:
Review: I have bought these jars of ikura many times from vital choice and always loved it as it was fresh and no fishy smell or taste at all as it was fresh; however the last 3 jars I have ordered last time are all smelled and tested very fishy and not fresh; I have tried the last 3rd jar (out of 3 jars ordered ) and I'm very disappointed. Was ithe old batch of ikura placed into my order? Just to let you know I'm always following the instructions the same way I did for all my other orders. I have ordered ikura in plastic container which is cheaper but after comparing the ikura in the jar I loved ikura in the jar much better. I started to buy ikura in the jar only which more expensive. But recently I'm very disappointed and the quality of ikura in the jar is very poor. - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in this product.

"Excellent!"FL Squirrely Girl on 10/30/2017 8:28 AMRating:
Review: I will usually order Ikura sushi when at a Japanese restaurant and have found this to be far superior in taste. I also love that I can keep jars in the freezer to keep the Ikura fresh until I want some. I've started eating some Ikura with breakfast to get the benefits of starting the day with some protein and omega-3s and I look forward to my morning treat.
"Delicious!"Julie on 10/27/2017 2:20 PMRating:
Review: Absolutely the best salmon caviar out there. Huge eggs, pop in your mouth, unbelievable taste. If it were cheaper I would order it more often. I love, love love it.

"Wow."Jillian on 10/6/2017 5:10 AMRating:

Review: The four jars of Ikura arrived fresh in dry ice, were very well packed, and delicious! I have it with organic sour cream or vegan cashew cream cheese spread on a gluten free whole grain rye toast with my morning coffee.
"Delicious, Briny, Succulent Roe"Maryanne R on 8/3/2017 6:10 AMRating:
Review: There are a variety of Japanese grocers in my area, but haven't found a salmon roe product to match the quality of the Ikura Salmon Caviar I bought from Vital Choice. It was packaged frozen, which I allowed to defrost in the refrigerator. It is so yummy I put it on everything, but savor it since it'll be gone before I know it.
"Delicious"Wendy on 7/15/2017 3:28 AMRating:

Review: This Ikura Salmon Caviar is stunning in quality and freshness. The taste is pure and unmatched.
"GO FOR IT"Jolita A on 6/25/2017 12:00 PMRating:
Review: I'll admit I started craving Ikura after a character in a favorite television show mentioned caviar, and immediately thought of Vital Choice to supply me. Like other VC products, the salt content of this salmon caviar is lower and thus far more delicious for my taste. Ways to use it are endless, from topping eggs to make brunch feel more special to adding a dollop over my bean pasta with edamame for a full Japanese flavor at dinner. Will re-order soon to always have an extra jar in the freezer.
"Excellent Product"Anne M on 6/19/2017 9:50 AMRating:
Review: Certainly one of the best salmon roe that I have had. Particularly enjoy it with sunny
side up eggs for breakfast - or at the end of a warm day with a glass of white wine.
"Perfect!"Marlene on 6/10/2017 4:06 AMRating:
Review: So good,
Try a spoonful with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt on a baked potato. Deelish.
Or added to an omelet.
"Ikura"Sveta P on 4/16/2017 9:29 AMRating:
Review: Smells very natural and tastes great. What I like about it most is that it is salted in moderation. It is evidently fresh, and it is good to enjoy it from time to time.

Review: I am a sushi lover and this Ikura is the best.
Not too salty and bursts in your mouth with heavenly flavor.
I purchased 3 6 oz jars hoping it would last for a while but my family finished it in a week.
Getting ready to reorder.
"Exquisite"Deborah on 2/10/2017 6:20 AMRating:

"Excellent Find"King Fisher in AZ on 4/12/2016 9:39 AMRating:
Review: The Salmon roe arrived in its perfectly frozen state, which was packed in its insulated, dry-iced box. The first jar was thawed and sampled for just a little taste. That jar was emptied within minutes! The other jars have been rationed for special occasions and for another feed or two of delicious Salmon roe!

Review: So fresh and delicious! Everyone loves this even the non fish lovers. I regret getting the super large size last time and had to throw away! Goes bad very fast. The glass jars are
perfect and keep Salmon caviar fresh enough to be eaten (only 2 oz). Rather pay more and enjoy than to save money and Toss.. lol.Thank you for the savings you have sent as I cannot wait to reorder.

"Ikura"Janine Schenck on 7/26/2015 10:00 AMRating:
Review: I got hooked on salmon roe (Ikura) when we lived in Okinawa Japan. I didn't bother with the rice & seaweed, I could buy small boxes of roe in the grocery stores. Living in Iowa is hard on people who like fish and sea products: you can have pork or beef. I'm grateful Vital Choice sent a catalog and I took advantage of their products. It gets a rating of five.
"best salmon caviar ever!"birdloverus on 7/3/2015 4:34 PMRating:

Review: Love the taste of this Ikura and even my 3 year old nephew loves it. My only problem is to keep the remaining Ikura fresh once I opened it. I feel compel to finish the whole 6oz in one go. Next time, I will purchase three 2oz bottles instead :)
"Caviar"Marina on 4/6/2015 5:11 PMRating:

"So great."Barbara Hill on 4/2/2015 7:40 AMRating:
Review: I love the health benefits of salmon but don't really like salmon, except for the row. I like to have Ikura on hand for a healthy snack. A little on a couple of slices of cucumber is satisfying and so good.
