Review: These are the real deal. If you want the best, freshest sardines available, get these.
"sardines in olive oil"octavio hermida on 9/14/2020 10:11 AMRating:
Review: They are good but I prefer the ones in Tomato sauce etc. I usually drained out the olive oil since I use olive oil only on salads.
"Addicting"Sue on 9/11/2020 7:20 AMRating:
Review: I recieved these sardines and can't stop eating them!
Even plain without the usual condiments,they are delish.
"Portuguese Sardines EVOD"Bob Straface on 9/10/2020 4:33 AMRating:
Review: Very important component of what I eat and enjoy. Great source of protein and other impactful nutrients. I add it to salads, brown rice or just eat out of the can with a few crackers.
Soaked in extra virgin olive oil provides a bonus of added nutrition.
"Sardines"LAJ on 8/28/2020 5:18 PMRating:
Review: I did not care for these at all. I have a few left and never will open.
I did love the salmon.

Review: Perfect! You will not regret your purchase.
"Delicious"Danielle on 4/17/2019 1:13 PMRating:
Review: These are fabulous sardines. They are firm and perfectly packed. I like to take two cans of them and mix them with some whole mustard, lemon juice, pepper, salt and capers. Then I put it on top of cucumber slices, delicious. I will be buying these from here on out.
"Sure wish these were no Salt"Meg D on 3/12/2019 2:47 PMRating:
Review: I buy quite a bit from Vital Choice and I love their fresh fish. I had high hopes for these Sardines - they are plump and fresh looking. That said, I eat very little salt so when I tasted one I was shocked at how salty they tasted. I should have checked the ingredients. The ad says "low sodium" but I guess that's relative. My fault for not reading the label. I don't understand why they had to add salt. - Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear you found this type of sardine too salty, we do offer two no salt or oil options that many customers who aren't salt fans prefer. Our team will reach out to you to follow up. Thank you!

Review: I love Sardines. 40 years ago, I ate my first sardine - small mustard sauce and it was good. Then time passed and the sardines looked like little fish. Not Vital Choice - they still are little sardines and taste great.

"Sardines"Lynette Hughes on 8/18/2017 1:01 PMRating:
Review: Sardines are one of my favorite lunch meals. They are small, firm and cut in thin fillets. I can tell by the smell condition in an opened can that I am eating a good fished and processed fish.
"Thank you!"Tonia Messina on 8/10/2017 8:04 AMRating:

"Great Sardines"Leroy G on 6/18/2017 12:19 PMRating:
Review: Great tasting sardines. Been eating them for years. My cats love them, too. They turn away from regular store-bought sardines that I get for them. Ditto with the wild-caught salmon--they only go for the best! Thanks for bringing more quality back into our lives.

"Great sardines."Dave R on 5/3/2017 5:30 AMRating:
Review: Long time sardine fan here. I usually buy another brand of Portuguese sardines from another popular online retailer. After reading many favorable reviews of Vital Choice sardines I placed an order for one case and hoped they lived up to the hype. Opened up a can today and they really are amazing. Whatever olive oil they use just puts them over the top. So good. I'll definitely order these again.
"Sardines in Olive Oil"Moira D on 5/1/2017 11:47 AMRating:
Review: These sardines are the best! Not fishy at all. They are thick and meaty and really delicious. I also appreciated that they were salted but not overly salty. These sardines provide a jumbo dose of anti-inflammatory omega3s, too!!!
"Wild Portuguese Sardines"Steven R on 4/21/2017 4:40 AMRating:
Review: These are the only sardines I eat and for good reason. They are fantastic! I started eating sardines to ensure a good daily intake of calcium and potassium. I now eat Portuguese sardines simply because I enjoy it so much. At one point this brand was on back order and I cringed at the thought of it never being available again. Great product at a great price.
"Wild Portuguese Sardines"Bob S on 3/26/2017 6:38 PMRating:
Review: Very tasty and hopefully full of healthy omegas for my body.

Review: I've been fortunate to have liked sardines and other fish since back in the 50's! I've bought quality sardines for years in the store. These are, however, really outstanding because of their excellent taste and canning process. A SUPERIOR PRODUCT....and strongly recommended for anyone who enjoys great sardines!!! THANKS

"Sardines like you've never had"Shirley R on 9/19/2016 7:35 AMRating:
Review: I've eaten sardines over the years, not because they were delicious, but because they are a healthy food. Thought I'd give the ones from Vital Choice a try, even though they are a bit pricey. What a wonderful surprise! They were excellent! I got both the ones in olive oil and one in water. They are worth the price!
"Best Sardines"Kim on 9/18/2016 7:35 PMRating:
Review: I love this sardine very much and I am ordering it very regularly. Recently I just gave it to my co worker to try it and he loves it too. He ordered few dozen cans for himself. Thanks for making a very tasty fish

"Scales??"Alex on 8/18/2016 7:59 AMRating:
Review: Based on the reviews, I thought this would be a great purchase and took a chance with the 24 cans. OMG! What a mistake- it's gross! The sardines have scale and parts of fin left on. I've tried many other brands but never are the scales left on. I still have 20 cans left sitting in the pantry. - Thank you for ordering with Vital Choice. We are sorry to hear you disappointment in the Wild Sardines. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you today to discuss. Thank you! Vital Choice
"the best in the world !"Sara Shannon on 7/25/2016 5:19 AMRating:
Review: For a person who didn't like sardines much at all,
but knew from Dr Frank ,a great researcher who
proclaimed the health benefits of sardines, I tried to eat them.
Now Vital Choice sardines make this effort a delight;
and I would say their sardines are the best in the world

"The Only Sardines"Steven R on 5/3/2016 4:14 AMRating:
Review: The Vital Choice Sardines are the only ones I eat. The omega 3 content gives me a healthy hit of essential fatty acids plus the potassium and calcium I need through my diet to deal with osteo and absorption issues.

"Review of Sardines"Elizabeth A on 2/8/2016 5:40 AMRating:
Review: The sardines tasted and smelled as if they were smoked. Is this true? The label does not mention smoking. Perhaps the olive oil was smoked???
I have trouble digesting food that has been smoked or has a smoky taste.. Please let me know if they are smoked. Thanks. - Thank you for ordering with Vital Choice. We are sorry to hear you are not satisfied with the Sardines. Our Sardines are not smoked in any way. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you today to discuss further. Here is a short video on the Sardine and Mackerel process and harvest, http://www.vitalchoice.com/shop/pc/viewContent.asp?idpage=671 . Thank you!
