The food industry is flooded with dairy-free milks and creamers, but some other dairy substitute categories are still under-represented. Good Karma Plant-Based Sour Cream aims to reduce this discrepancy. It’s a top food allergy-friendly sour cream substitute that’s reportedly great for topping and baking, and is used as the base for their new creamy dips.
Most dairy-free sour cream alternatives have a flavor or texture that’s slightly off, but Good Karma is promising a smooth, creamy consistency with no funny aftertaste. When you get the chance to try it, leave your own rating and review below. Let us know if you think they hit the mark.

What Others Are Saying ...
It is nothing like sour cream. It is light brown and has a horrible taste. Also it has upset my stomach to no end!
This is disgusting
I’d rather have horrific sickness from dairy then eat this.
I’m lactose intolerant so I wanted to get a non dairy sour cream to sub for the regular sour cream. This was horrible! I smelled it first and it smelled good. But once I tasted it it tasted as if I was eating yogurt in my taco. It was way too sweet I couldn’t handle it.
Hands down the BEST
I had given up on sour creams bc they all had the worst taste or after taste/ strange consistency.. but this one is as close to dairy sour cream as you will get. Live cultures is such a plus. I no longer feel left out when I make quesadillas and baked potatoes
Awesome on a baked potato! Tangy, creamy. Needs salt and pepper.
By itself it tastes not quite like sour cream, but very close!
No bad aftertaste!
I have been reading the reviews for the Good Karma Plant Based sour cream, and have been curious about its’ taste, so I decided to try it myself, and glad that I did, it does have a smooth, cream, taste with a hint of yogurt, in my opinion that’s what makes it really good, I love the flavor, the texture, the fact it doesn’t taste like other dairy free sour creams that have this bland cardboard taste, or some that have no flavor whatsoever, Good Karma has definitely gained a life long fan right here
More like butter than sour cream
I can handle the texture, I am all for PB sour cream, but the smell: butter, the taste: butter, the horrible feeling in your stomach after ingestion: butter.
Also tried mixing it with so many other things to get rid of the butter taste and it’s still awful.
I can’t imagine a tofu based sour cream is worse than this.
Threw it away. Had a weird taste I can’t quite put my finger on. What a waste
This is the worst non-dairy sour cream I’ve ever had. It doesn’t look smell or taste like sour cream. Getting refund.
Eating this on its own is horrifying. After spooning some in the top of chili, I licked the spoon and totally thought I had ruined my chili by adding it. Once I took a bite of it with the plant-based sour cream mixed in, it was totally fine and I really couldn’t tell too much of difference from regular light sour cream. I’m giving it 4 stars because 3.5 isn’t available.
