How we rate sour cream

Our review compares sour cream on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which sour cream they think is best!


Canstar Blue surveyed 370 Australians for their feedback on the sour cream(s) they’ve purchased and eaten in the last three months.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.


Respondents rate their satisfaction with their sour cream brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a sour cream brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Taste: the sour cream tasted authentic and matched the flavour description on the packaging (i.e. light, etc.).
  • Texture & consistency: the sour cream was rich and had the expected consistency.
  • Variety & range: the sour cream brand offered a variety of product options.
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and quantity of the sour cream.
  • Packaging convenience: the sour cream packaging made it easy to dispense and store (i.e. came in a resealable tub, etc.).

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  • Bulla
  • Coles
  • Dairy Farmers
  • Woolworths
