Double Rainbow Soy Cream:
Double Rainbow Soy Cream is awesome!
But I'm not sure that you can buy that everywhere. I've tried finding it in Pennsylvania when I'm back home to visit, but it's not available there. However, if you can get your hands on some, I highly recommend the Very Cherry Chocolate Chip, Dulce No Leche, or Coffee Almond Fudge. Soy Cream has a really rich taste. I honestly can't tell the difference between Soy Cream and regular ice cream. http://www.doublerainbow.com/products/index.html
When I can't get Soy Cream, Soy Delicious Purely Decadent is definitely the next in line. I am particulary into Cookie Avalanche right now. It's not quite as rich as Soy Cream, IMO, but it is definitely good. http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/products.html
I much prefer the Tofutti novelty line to the regular pints. Their "Ice Cream Sandwiches (Tofutti Cuties) and Novelty "Ice Cream" Bars (I really like Monkey Bars) are the best. Of course, I haven't tried their cheesecake pints yet. I love cheesecake. http://www.tofutti.com/ourProducts.asp
Rice Dream doesn't taste like ice cream so much as ice milk. It's still very good in it's own right though, particularly when you are looking for something a little lighter than the other stuff. http://www.imaginefoods.com/pages/pr...reamfrozen.php
Has anyone else seen this yet? Apparently, Imagine Foods has merged the wonderful taste of Rice Dream with Celestial Seasonings Tea Flavors. Oh, my goodness. My life may never be the same. http://www.imaginefoods.com/pages/pr.../tea_dream.phpCheeses
Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet:
That's pretty much the end all and be all of vegan cheeses right now, outside of just making your own. Unlike most vegan cheeses, Vegan Gourmet actually melts. So, you can make your own vegan cheese pizza. It tends to be cost prohibitive though, particularly if you can't find it in your local hfs or Whole Foods. http://www.imearthkind.com/index.html
Soymage Vegan Parmesan:
I use this a lot in recipes that call for parmesan cheese, especially in my Alfredo sauce. It doesn't melt, but it adds a really nice parmesan flavor.http://www.veganessentials.com/catal...n-parmesan.htm
Tofutti also has cheese slices. They're not my favorite thing. It seems like they have a bit of an aftertaste to me, but if you're really wanting an American cheese slice to go on your phoney baloney sandwich, these will work. I'm not sure if these melt or not; I haven't had them in a while. Also, they have Better Than Cream Cheese which is wonderful stuff. I make cheesecake with it all the time.
