So I was in NYC last week and took advantage of the time to getting some things at Whole Foods that we don't find here (in Switzerland). I came across the Daiya cheese and remembered reading a lot of good things about it. So I got some. I just made some simple grilled cheese sandwiches (which I haven't had in about 2years) and that stuff is INSANE! It seriously tastes exactly like I remembered!!! popcorn.gif

 

PS. Also, those raw kale chips are incredible! If we had kale here I would totally buy a dehydrator to make them!

I know! Isn't it good? I eat it right out of the bag sometimes >__>

 

I tried Kale chips at a vegfest....omg, they would make the perfect snack to anything. They are crunchy and well, lol I dunno, but they are good.

I know! It's like 'ew kale chips' then you have some and you are hooked!!! I was telling everyone about them today and they all looked at me like I was mad ahahah. They don't know what they are missing.

 

I am dying to try the mozzarella Daiya on a pizza...

I love Daiya and kale chips! grin.gif

I like Daiya best in grilled cheese, on pizza or on nachos. I like it the most when it's super crispy.

Apparently other people do too, I found a 'recipe' for Daiya cheese crisps where you just put globs of it on a baking sheet and bake them until they get brown and crispy. That sounds sooo greasy but I know it's delicious, whenever I heat up pizza in my toaster oven little Daiya bits end up cooking on their own and they always taste awesome drool.gif

That sounds awesome!

It's great because I didn't actually miss cheese these past two years. But I must say that it is good to have some variety. Definitely a major plus when you are talking to non vegans about awesome vegan food!

I tried Daiya a couple of times and thought it was good. But I never finished the second bag. Seemed like I was eating fat just to eat fat.

 

I guess it's a good thing to feed to omnis at a party.

Yea now that I am used to no dairy I wouldn't eat it everyday. But a few times a month maybe.

 

Anybody know how they get the flavor? It's free of a ton of things and seems rather 'healthy' so I can't understand how it can resemble cheese so much!

I also spotted Daiya at Sprouts but at 5$ a pack didn't buy any because of the price.

 

They add the flavour via natural aromes. You can buy cheese and butter aromes on-line. They really do taste like the real thing.
