I've noticed that different brands have WAY different consistencies.

I buy whatever full fat sour cream is on sale, usually a store brand.

If I'm in Costco or Sam's and the expiration date on the big tubs of Daisy is way off in the future, I'll grab one for convenience.

I haven't found any major differences, but then again, it's probably made on the same line with the name brand and then just packaged differently.

I have only used Daisy. But that is because I can't ever find another brand! Nothing really close like a Costco or Sam's. I wish I could find the bigger tubs around here, too!

I use Bayview it is my local store brand... Only 98 cents for a 16 oz tub... and I didn't notice any difference between it and using Knudsen.

I use Daisy Pure & Natural. No gums or other additives. Just cream. I can find large tubs at Sams all the time, Costco only sometimes.

Well, a lot of generics are made in the same facilities as the name brand product. I usually go to Aldi's now that we have one. $.89 for 16 oz. But I prefer plain yogurt over sour cream, it just seems to be a little more moist. But I always get the cheapest after seeing no difference in the name brands.

I do a dollup of Daisy! (couldnt resist) or Breakstones if I can find a big enough container.

Whatever's cheapest! I can't tell any difference in the cakes!

I usually use Breakstone. But here lately the Food Lion Brand has been tops because it tastes the same and it is cheaper. icon_smile.gif

I just made my 2 first wasc cakes this past weekend (banana & cherry), I made a banan split cake and use daisy. That's the only brand I ever used for cooking, I shop at Walmart and they have the generic brand but I've been always afraid it would not taste the sam, got it try it now.

I'm not sure if there was a difference. When I used the generic brand, it turned denser than usual. Maybe it was also becaus I reduced the sugar.

I use whatever is cheapest--usually the store brand. Works perfectly
