"Delicious fillets!."Georgia Syribeys on 3/20/2021 8:35 AMRating:
Review: These are then best sardine fillets ever. I can't eat the fish bones anymore & have triied many fillets. These are the best for a quite elderly stomach & taste buds!
"Sardines"Paula Lee on 1/11/2021 6:52 AMRating:
Review: Great in twice-baked potatos! Cut baked potato in half. Mix tin of sardines witrh cheese, diced red onion, & red pepper flakes. Pack mixture into skins and heat at 350 for 30 minutes. Tasty and healthy!
"customer review of sardines"Gloria Dingus on 11/14/2020 9:26 AMRating:
Review: The best ever!
I would have preferred the sardines with the zip, however, they were out of stock. Bust these are equally as good. Fresh and satisfying.

Review: I love these Sardine Fillets, they're tender and moist (not dry) and taste great. They're good for salads, or a quick snack between meals or in the evening. I highly recommend them.

"I was kinda scared but..."Kelly P. on 2/16/2018 6:18 AMRating:
Review: So this was my first experience with Sardines and I was a bit nervous. They were the best! A nice mild flavor and great texture. I will be ordering again for sure.
"A big hit"Karen L on 2/2/2018 9:00 AMRating:
Review: My guys go duck hunting on the river--I ordered these sardines for the first time, and had them take a couple of cans to the river. They wondered where in the world I had bought the sardines, as they had never tasted sardines so good! A great snack and so good for you.
"wild sardine fillets"Sandy P on 1/25/2018 2:06 AMRating:
Review: so incredibly delicious. I do believe they are the best sardines I have ever had. they are the best and easiest lunch for work.
"sardines"Stephanie on 1/15/2018 5:28 AMRating:
Review: I have found yet another product from VC that I will never have to purchase from a grocer again. The sardines are NOT like your everyday canned sardines. They are delicate, delicious and, DON'T smell or taste like cat food!
"Fabulous Fillets"Martha Johnston on 1/5/2018 2:50 PMRating:
Review: The best gets better. 3.5 oz is the ideal portion size, and the can fits the sardines perfectly. So...now we have some of the world's best sardines in beautifully presented portions. Thank you.

"Wild Portuguese sardine fillets"Carolina Shaw on 10/20/2017 5:49 AMRating:
Review: The product is of great quality, I only wish the expiration date would not be within the next twelve months (expires 11/2018) Normally canned goods have a two or more years before they expire. We take can goods to our cabin and like for them to have a long shelf life.
"mouth watering"richard b on 9/2/2017 5:36 PMRating:
Review: i have no idea how vital choice finds these gems but man they got this one in spades! These sardine fillets are so tasty, not very salty. Eating these fillets is a treat.
"BETTER THAN EXPECTED"RM L on 8/10/2017 9:50 AMRating:
Review: Was concerned that these sardines were NOT skinless (strongly prefer that option).
However, they were of extremely high quality, and delicious none the less.
Also, quite expensive, but good eating-

"Sardines"Stewart K on 4/14/2017 12:49 PMRating:
Review: The best sardines I've ever eaten. Straight from the can. Just add onion!
"bad value for meager amount of meat."Glenn D. on 3/27/2017 1:51 PMRating:
Review: This is a very bad value for your money. The packaging says that there is supposed to be 100 grams after the product is DRAINED. My testing of 3 cans so far has found only 60/66/74 grams of meat after the oil is removed. This is a pitiful and meager amount of meat. It's not enough to feed a cat. And it cost more than the regular sardines which provides more meat. Don't waste your money, stick with the regular sardines. There should be bigger sizes anyway. - Thank you for ordering with Vital Choice. We are very sorry to hear your disappointment in the canned sardines. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you today. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team

"Canned Sardine Fillet in Olive Oil"Lynette H on 2/4/2017 3:23 AMRating:
Review: I love sardines and usually order them in water, whole or fillets. Excellent at all times. This order I chose in Olive Oil - excellent sardines but the olive oil isn't my favorite.
"Wild Portuguese Sardine Fillets"Patricia on 1/29/2017 5:42 PMRating:
Review: I haven't had sardines in years. I decided to try these and was not disappointed. They were awesome and very fresh tasting.
"Delicious!"Geri M on 1/27/2017 3:41 AMRating:
Review: I am a sardine lover, and these are the best I've had from a can (haven't yet tried them fresh). These are hearty and fresh-tasting and they do NOT have the sometimes too-strong sardine smell. A complete and healthy and delicious meal in a can!
"pat"Patricia Cameron on 1/19/2017 11:25 AMRating:
Review: these sardines are as good as they get - and that is VERY good.
"Sardines"Maryanne Lyons on 1/13/2017 5:16 AMRating:
Review: Meaty and delicious!
"Bad Exerience"Ken H on 1/9/2017 6:42 AMRating:
Review: I'm sorry to say I got severe indigestion from the half can I ate. It lasted about 5 hours after eating the sardines and finally ended with abdominal cramps and a bout of diarrhea. It was a very unpleasant experience. - Than you for ordering with Vital Choice. We are sorry to hear the Sardines did not agree with you. I do see our Customer Service Team has been in contact with you to resolve this issue. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team

"sardines in olive oil...& in water"Colleen R on 7/25/2016 11:31 AMRating:
Review: I first bought these sardines in water. Decided they needed a bit more flavor & ordered them in the olive oil. Sadly, this oil tastes old...and the can has been overfilled with it. I have had to literally rinse the oil off before eating. I still love the sardines...wish your provider would change to a better grade olive oil. - Thank you for ordering with Vital Choice. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in the Sardines. Our Olive Oil is Premium Grade Oil that is 100% Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you today to discuss. Thank you! Vital Choice

Review: These are the very best sardines I've ever had. Amazing flavor and delicious.
"Best sardines ever!"Curtis on 1/9/2016 9:28 AMRating:
Review: Highest levels of omega-3 for sardines. Fresh and delicious. Great on salads, crackers or right out the can. They are a little more pricey than other brands, but you get what you pay for. I got them over the holidays with a discount code and the shipping was prompt. Highly recommended!
"Wonderful, Fresh Taste"Christine D on 12/24/2015 2:28 PMRating:
Review: These sardine fillets taste very fresh and I like knowing I am eating a quality food. I used the olive oil in the can on my rice. It was delicious.

"Very good products"Valentina Rutstein on 10/21/2015 8:47 AMRating:
Review: Besides having a very good customer support, this company carries a lot of excellent quality products, wild Salmon in particular. Tender and juicy , any way you cook it. And what is more important, I know that I am dealing with a respectable company that stands behind their products.
"Sardine fillets are the perfect food"Tim B on 10/18/2015 12:49 PMRating:
Review: The Wild Sardine Fillets in Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil are simply the perfect food. No heating required; great on toast or on salads. Just perfect!
"BPA in cans?"Michael on 10/15/2015 6:06 AMRating:
Review: I've been ordering these sardines for the past few years. I've become concerned with the possibility of BPA in the cans they are packaged in and haven't been able to get a straight answer from Vital Choice if their sardine cans contain BPA.- Customer Service Response "Our Sardine can makers certify that BPA is not intentionally used to manufacture the cans. They are not labeled BPA Free because there may be trace amount of BPA found within the environment. All cans are lined with a PET plastic liner to prevent the can from coming in contact with the product. At this time we feel this is the safest option available. "

Review: Good, but I love Mackerel
"It is a choice"Jeane Schwarzkopf on 10/6/2015 12:07 AMRating:
Review: The Sardines were great, however I don't agree that
food should be put into Aluminum and in this case
it is, so that makes them not edible. But then again
there are those people that it doesn't matter so then
I can recommend them highly
"sardines"Clara M on 8/27/2015 5:55 AMRating:
Review: The canned sardines, whether in olive oil or spicy sauce, have become an item that I crave.
"Wild Sardine Fillets"Mary Ann Frances Dowell on 8/20/2015 1:01 PMRating:
Review: My new neighbo, Ellie, moved here from Seattle area, tasted a Portuguese Sardine, along with Feta Cheese and a Kashi Peta Cracker. She exclamed,
"best sardine fillet I have ever tasted". I gave her one of my 6 cans, in organic olive oil, to take home. I will give her my copy of your next catalog, when I receive it. I gave my last one away already.
I enjoy the Portuguese sardine fillets too, great flavor. Vital Choice offers healthy and good tasting foods!

Review: i have been always looking for sardines, that has BPA free packaging, at the same time tasty, and from a good reputable source, and I found one! I think Vital Choice 's products besides being very high quality, also very healthy, and what is also important stand behind their products.
"Wild Sardine Fillets in Organic EXtra Virgin Oil"Mary Ann Frances Dowell on 2/25/2015 12:19 PMRating:
Review: I never liked Sardines, as a child. my parents owned a Deli in New England. I tried some of these sardines, on the advice of a fisherman friend and his wife. I loved the taste, since then have ordered them again. I now eat one sardine, mid day, as a pick-me up. I missed out, all those years, but these sardines have to be the best!
"Fast, Good Lunch Choice"J M S on 2/19/2015 6:27 AMRating:

"Great, Mild Flavor"Eric D. Evans on 11/21/2014 12:13 AMRating:
Review: I enjoy the mild flavor of these sardine fillets as part of a spinach or kale salad with grape tomatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms, carrots, and my oil and Balsamic vinegar dressing. I will definitely order more of these sardine fillets.

Review: Best Sardines I ever tasted with almost no fishy smell. The wife will even let me eat them inside the house. She will not even let me open store bought sardines in the house because of the smell.
"Worth the money...."L. Pochat on 8/15/2014 10:22 AMRating:
Review: The best sardines I ever had. Hopefully very low in heavy metals. But I am sure they are better in that respect than any sardines on the American Market.
"Wild Sardines in Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil"joe on 8/14/2014 6:34 AMRating:
Review: Opened up the first can and thought they were great. Of course the Oilve Oil was top grade so that made them even tastier!
Wish the price was a bit more reasonable, I would be a steady customer!

"Fillets were a little disappointing!"sally axelrod on 6/21/2014 1:38 PMRating:
Review: My first order of Vital Choice Portugese sardines was for the wild whole sardines with skin and bones.They were absolutely delicious. I ate the full order in less than six weeks! The fillets in my next order were somewhat of a disappointment, as they didn't have the great flavor of the whole sardines. When I'm ready to reorder, it will be for the whole sardines in extra virgin olive oil. Simply great!
