So I have always had an obsession with regular cheese… Vegan cheese has come a long way. Over the last few years, there have been some amazing developments in flavor and texture. With more people turning to a plant-based lifestyle, I am sure things will only continue to improve!
Taste/Texture: This is the thing about vegan cheese that can turn some people off. I hate to use this as a description but the slices are kind of rubbery. Again, vegan cheese does not have the same texture as regular cheese. But the taste totally makes up for it with this one. This has to be the best vegan cheese I have ever tried! You can totally taste the tomato and the spice from the peppers. If you aren’t into super spicy, have not fear… this is very tolerable. If you like pepper jack cheese and tomatoes you will absolutely adore this! On its own this cheese is wonderful, it would be even better on a sandwich. I did not get the chance to melt this one down as I ate it all before I even thought to try. I will update and edit this post when I get my hands on another pack. I promise I will try melting a slice or two.
Price: @ 5.49 for 10 slices, this is definitely a splurge. Despite loving the flavor, I don’t think this will make the weekly shopping cart. If you had some company over, had plans for a really special sandwich, or had some cash to burn I would recommend picking this up!
Availability: I have only seen this stocked at my local Whole Foods Market. There are other health food stores in my area and they don’t carry this brand/line.
Overall: 10/10 I would definitely recommend this one and would totally purchase this again. I don’t think that this would be passable for real cheese with a meat eater, but they might give it another try because the flavor is that good! Again, if you like pepper jack cheese and tomato then this is for you!
