Fat contents, most likely, and flavour. Each country grazes its cattle differently and has a different attitude about at what point cream is cream rather than milk. If I recall correctly, the Honduran cream will be the heaviest of the three.

If I'm buying them in the US, they're presumably coming from US milk.

Why not buy all three and do a side-by-side taste test? You could even invite some friends...:)

I am not sure about the others but I myself like the Honduran Cream (Although I am biased ... the wife is from Honduras)

I have actually made creme fraiche at home before and added salt just before eating and my wife swears it tastes just like Honduran cream.
