I keep reading rave reviews for this stuff, but it's not available anywhere within a 6 hour drive of my house (I looked.) My husband is a cheese addict and is really struggling with veganism because of the lack of cheese, so I'd like to try this stuff. Has anyone had it? How is it?



And how the heck do you pronounce it?? I want to call some health food stores in other cities near me to find out if they have it but I don't know how to pronounce it...(Day-uh or die-uh?)

I may be wrong about this but as far as I know Daiya cheese isn't really available for individuals to buy in stores yet, but is mainly used in food service establishment (though there seem to be some exceptions with some stores buying it and repackaging it for sale).



You can order it online at www.veganstore.com, but it can be expensive after you buy the cold pack (if necessary) and pay for shipping.



We actually ordered one of the 5 pound bags of it. It's expensive but it's A LOT of cheese. I stored it in the freezer, it seems to freeze well.



The first time we had it (cheddar) we put it on pizza and honestly, wasn't crazy about it like that. It was better cold the next day. It is really good on grilled cheese and melted on corn chips. It's also good cold, straight out of the package.

I just bought a bag online from Vegan Essentials. It's not as good as I expected it to be but it's not bad either. It's a lot stronger tasting than I expected. I bought the Italian flavored one and I guess my mistake was thinking it was going to taste like mozzerella cheese. It does not. I made eggplant parm with it and again, it was a little overpowering. I also sprinkled some on my tomato sandwich. I'm not giving up on it though. I'm going to try it with some other foods. I think I will try the cheddar next.

I don't know the proper pronunciation. I say "die-uh".
