I cannot compare it to anything, has a slight fishy taste. They are fish eggs. I only like the little black ones, not the large red. I make marinated mushrooms (evoo, garlic and red wine vinegar) stuff with cream cheese mixed with garlic and scallions, and top with caviar. Also make hard boild eggs, thin slice on a cracker and top with caviar. MMMMMMMMMM

I can't remember what it was called but it was a cream cheese roll with both the red and black caviar garnished with chopped green onions. I was put off by the fact that they were fish eggs but the flavor was actually pretty good. It did have a fishy flavor but it wasn't intolerable. It's worth a try! :)

I have also had that DC, and it is good.

I like the little tiny tiny caviar. Black, red or gold and I even bought some wasabi green from Serfa's here in Los Angeles. << It's a kitchen store of quite an experience.

Anyway, try caviar just once and maybe you'll catch the bug.
I make caviar pie every year for the holidays.
My kids asked me from the get go, "Mom, is this fish eggs?" I said a confident, "No, it's caviar." That was enough for them and the caviar pie never lasts more than an hour no matter who's devouring it.
This is wonderful at any holiday party. It will disappear, promise!

Caviar Pie

In a pie plate of glass I put:
On the bottom, a layer of softened cream cheese
next layer on top of ^^^ is 4 or 5 hard cooked eggs peeled and chopped
" " " " " ^^^ " a layer of sour cream
Now buy 3 jars of caviar, red, gold and black, the little tiny caviars
Dot the sour cream in many places with dots of all 3 colors
Slice 3 scallions on the diagonal in thin strips and sprinkle on top of caviar
Line a charger platter with fancy crackers of all sorts and place the pie plate in the center of the platter and dig in.
I hope you like this. So pretty, so festive and soooooo good!
Enjoy!

I liked it, norgeskog. It was served at a Jewish wedding reception so I'm not sure if it's a kosher dish (still trying to figure out kosher) or if it's just, well, something good to serve! :)

LEFSElover, that sounds better than the one my aunt does, calles it cowboy caviar, does the same thing but uses black beans tossed with garlic, evoo, chili powder. Yours sounds much better.
