My family and I recently had the chance to try four Victoria Vegan sauces (they offer several more). Our favorite was the Vegan Vodka Sauce. It is so flavorful and rich. It actually reminded us of the sauce often used for lamb meatballs on Indian restaurant buffets. The same level of complexity and richness of flavor, if not the exact seasonings. The Vegan Vodka Sauce could easily be used in a variety of recipes.
We liked the cashew-based Alfredo okay but it wasn’t classic alfredo. My husband and I thought it would be especially good with some primavera-style vegetables. The bit of leftover sauce we had also made a great pizza topping the following night! I am still shaking my head in amazement that I can buy jarred dairy-free Alfredo sauce that everyone in my family will eat.
(Editor Note: Either they are having production issues with with Victoria Vegan Alfredo Sauces or they changed the formula because many people have noted a finish that isn’t smooth and tastes off. Sarah didn’t have this experience.)

alfredo was so sour! Tasted like straight vinegar. Gross!
It felt like I soaked my pasta in vinegar. So sour and disgusting! I am making my own alfredo from scratch tonight to fulfill my Alfredo craving. I thought this $6 jar was worth a shot but I fully regret it! I can’t wait until premade vegan foods are decent.
yum yum yum
Very tasty and enjoyed the richness of the Alfredo and we’ll try the Vodka tomorrow
As someone who likes garlic, I’m in love with the Alfredo Arugula Pesto sauce. It’s amazing on broccoli or fried in a wonton wrapper. The rest of my family likes it too.
It tastes like death.
The Alfredo Arugula Pesto sauce is an edible representation of death. It’s sour and bitter and it makes you wonder in the back of your mind, what you did to deserve it. It’s disgusting and is an embarrassing product available in the vegan market. Feeding this to someone should be classified as cruel and unusual punishment.
Once I got past the preconceived notion these were “supposed” to taste like Alfredo Sauces, then I started loving them. Even better if the pasta is excellent (incredible with Jovial’s tagliatelle)
Doesn't even taste like Alfredo sauce
I bought the Alfredo sauce and it was simply awful. It tastes nothing like the creamy cashew-based sauces I have had in the past. It was bland and weirdly sweet.
I purchased Victoria’s Vegan Alfredo sauce with high hopes that it would have a creamy cashew flavor. No such luck. Very much like lemon was added to it. We ate some out of hunger but ended up throwing it out. Disappointed I spent $6.99 at Sprouts instead of making my own sauce.
I didn’t think I could ever hate the taste of garlic. Also how do you mess up cashew cheese this bad? I’m extremely sad that I wasted half an hour of labor $ on this. Super sad. I was almost positive this was expired by the extremely pungent taste and clumpy quality, but no, apparently I should have looked up the 2 star reviews on Amazon and seen that this profuct got removed from multiple online stopped before wasting my money. Huge bummer. Here’s a picture of my new $8 glass jar
Hard to believe they are dairy-free
My family loved these delicious, ready-made creamy red sauces and Alfredo sauces. Even the dairy-eaters in my family found It impossible to believe they were dairy-free. The vodka sauce was the hands down favorite with its bold, rich flavor. The alfredos were well liked, but had a notable tang present that limited their versatility.
We love the Alfredo Red Pepper Sauce. It was great as a spread on our grilled zucchini sandwiches. Exceptional on almost anything that you can imagine. The flavor is robust and the creamy texture never breaks form. Thank you for making such a fabulous vegan sauce.
Thanks for sharing your own review on that flavor Daveau – very helpful!
Have you tried using the Victoria’s Vegan alfredo sauce to make lasagna? I just put one together gluten free, dairy free, and with ground turkey. I’m wondering if anyone else has a good recipe.
I haven’t. How did the turkey one turn out for you?
Just saw these at our Natural Grocers in Wyoming today! Thanks for the review Sarah. xoLexie
