The NEW Daiya!

Just wondering if anyone else has tried the new Daiya shreds yet? The package says "Cheesier and stretchier" so I decided to pick up some of the cheddar style shreds...

WOW!

They aren't kidding! I am eating some vegan goulash I made that I threw a handful of these new shreds on. WOW! They weren't kidding...

And here I thought that I was over my Daiya thing. Having gone completely nooch based. Guess I will be gaining a few pounds this winter.

I usually do the nooch stuff too, but every once in a while I buy Daiya just because. I just bought some today while Christmas shopping and I saw the new stuff too. It also has more calcium in it (20% per serving) which is a bonus for those wondering.

Just checked the bag i have in the fridge and it does say Cheesier and stretchier! I've only used it once since i bought it and to be honest i had had a few drinks before so i didnt really notice a taste difference but the texture of the shreds out of the bag felt a little different, maybe not as oily as they someines feel. I guess i'll have to figure out something to use them in to get a better taste!

Describing something as "stretchier" doesn't make it sound any more appetizing, however.... LMFAO

I think they mean when melted, like on a pizza.

I haven't eaten cow milk cheese in over a decade. "Stretchy" cheeze is exactly what I want, so it sounds good to me!

I love cheese, but so far I haven't tried any vegan cheese, mainly because I'm afraid of being disappointed. Maybe it's time to dip my toe in the water.

It's a leap of faith; but I was pleasantly surprised with it. Now, I got the Daiya cheddar slices since they were on sale. It was great, melted on a toasted rice pattie, with black bean hummus, avocado, and Vegenaise.

I used it on the "pepperoni" pizza I made last night. The sauce (really just roasted tomatoes) was too watery and stole a lot of heat from the rest of the pizza, but yeah, this new stuff is much better than the old variety. I was kinda hoping it would go the way of the dodo just because of how unhealthy it is, but damn... YUM!

You all LIKE the new Daiya?? I find it pretty bad, which was disheartening because of how much I rely on it to keep my former-cheese-addict self on the wagon. The cheddar I can tolerate in small amounts, and I can't eat the mozzarella at all. Both types have a sour smell and don't melt as well. I contacted the company to register my discontent and received an email saying that they are going to manufacture the old formula again. It will be marked with something saying "Original Award-Winning Recipe" or something like that.
