I can't wait to get my hands on a bag. I found out from a posting on VegNews Magazine's blog This Just In.

I've been wanting to try Daiya since I hear it's one of the better alternatives. I hope I can find the pepper-jack this weekend!

The more I have Daiya the more I like it! First bag was mozzerella. When it was gone I thought "it's just ok. prob wouldn't buy again" I recently bought cheddar. I had some on chili and found it amazing. Today I just made a grilled daiya. That was amazing! Daiya doesn't replace the finer varities of cheese, but it is just like whats called American, or even cheap cheddars. Mozzerella I can't pin down too well, I need to try again.
Pepper Jack was my favorite of regular cheeses! I will be looking for it.

What are people paying for Daiya? My usual HFS has it at $5.69 a bag. I believe Whole Foods was cheaper.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

Very cool on the pepper jack. I hope my Whole Foods has it. I pay about 4 bucks at Giant for the mozzarella. Giant doesn't seem to carry the cheddar, which I get at Whole Foods for about $4.50.

Agreed! I love it on grilled cheese, it has the same sort of smooth creamy texture and mild flavour as the grilled cheese made with Kraft singles I used to have as a kid. It's also great on nachos or pizza or anywhere else you want that taste and consistency.

I'm wondering if eventually they'll come out with a firmer creamy cheese with a sharper flavour, something closer to the good stuff. I'm already impressed but it would be amazing to have something I like in macaroni and cheese or to have sliced on sandwiches. If they ever come up with a hard cheese good enough to serve on its own with toothpicks I will consider the battle of the vegan cheese truly won

Agree on the grilled cheese! I use both flavors. I've also made mac and cheese with the cheddar. It comes out nice and creamy, though it doesn't reheat well, so it's best to make it in small batches.

I'm super excited. Any advice on how long it lasts before it gets moldy? I was thinking this would not happen as quick, but it did. Made my mozzarella very sad.

Daiya FAQs
Quote:
What is the refrigerated shelf life?
Daiya vegan products have the same refrigerated shelf life as dairy cheese. Once the package is opened it is good for 7 – 10 days in the fridge.
Does it freeze?
Yes, Daiya can be frozen and reheated. It will retain its melting, stretching and flavour properties. Like most products, you shouldn't re-freeze Daiya after it has already been frozen and thawed.
