Bought a 2 oz to check what all the fuss was about. People have told me Hackleback caviar is very close to sturgeon caviar. The color and size of the pearls were very similar and the taste wasn't far off, but the texture was quite different from some of the sturgeon caviars I've tried. Nonetheless at this price, I don't think you can get a better deal. Looking forward to buying another batch when I have guests come over next time!
