We’ve been waiting for Trader Joe’s to make the official announcement, but it seems they’re letting this dairy-free product release linger for a while. Trader Joe’s Vegan Sour Cream is already in stores, and waiting to top your enchilada casserole. It’s reportedly thick, refreshingly rich, and nicely tangy. Perfect for sauces, dips, baking, or topping that dairy-free baked potato. We have all the details for this savory new condiment below.
Trader Joe’s Vegan Sour Cream is a Cool Coconut-Based Alternative
It’s not dairy, but it is a little tart, a touch tangy, adequately thick, and quite creamy. And we think it will work well as a sour cream substitute on your favorite Mexican dishes, stirred into dips, baked into cakes, and more. But be sure to leave your own rating and review below once you try it.

What Others Are Saying ...
Taste so similar to the real thing, works even better as a vegan cream cheese base!!
Tastes extremely thick and offputting
So excited about this, but it tasted nothing like sour cream and was a different texture too. Very think, minimal flavor, and very disappointing.
I typically enjoy many foods from Trader Joe’s, but this alternative sour cream missed the mark. With following a dairy-free diet I’m understanding when the options aren’t identical to the original. However, this sour cream is just not good. It’s bland yet at the same time has a pungent taste that is trying to mimic real sour cream. I even tried mixing it with hot sauce and it was still subpar.
I have tried so many alternatives and some are ok, some are terrible and none gave the experience of sour cream. This one made my vegan taco night feel like it should. I loved it
