What flavour did you try? I have only tried a couple of the flavours but I really like it.

I love cheezly! It's my favourite vegan cheese and the only one worth buying IMO. But you have to make sure to get the "extra melting" variety

The only vegan cheese I like is the stuff I make myself. The Uncheese Cookbook, try to get it from your library.

I've been pretty critical of many vegan cheeses -- i.e. I think they suck. And yet Cheezly, when it's melted mind you!, truly tastes really good and cheese-like. This seems to be a common reaction among veg*ns, from what I've read.

I love cheezly!!! I like the cheddar and the gouda flavors the best. It doesn't really melt that well but who cares?! It tastes fab!

Super Melting Mottzarella style cheezly is the best, melt it on toast for cheese on toast, i swear it tastes the same as cheese on toast i used to have as a child.



I've never found cheezly by itself very cheese tasting and it took me a while to get the taste of cheese out of my system for me to really love it. If you're new to giving up dairy products, try scheese, which in my experience is disgusting but it probably tastes more cheese like.

I tried the scheeze 'cream cheese' style spreads.

it was how id imagine chewing on an old sock to taste



the dude giving out the samples kept giving me other flavours and i was too polite to say no - they ALL tasted awful. gag

i don't mind vegan-rella mozzarella flavour but i only use it melted on homemade pizza (it's the only one i've tried that actually melts instead of getting crunchy)

How can someone say Cheezly sucks? I don't understand. Did you just eat it raw or did you cook with it? Cheezly on pizza & burgers is amazing. Its the best vegan cheese available, IMHO.

Yeah but they're from a different planet than Cheezly.

i HATE scheeze it's absolutly disgusting and i did inform the people who offered me a sample of it at the vegan festival this year as such, it does probably taste more cheese like though to be honest. The spreads taste exactly the same as the solid stuff - horrible! I wouldn't buy scheeze or their spreads personally but i think if you still have the taste of cheese in your system they are more realistic.



DZL you can get cheezly from holland and barrat stores and most local wholefood shops in the U.K. It's not yet avalible in the U.S or anywhere else ( i don't think?) though there was talk of them selling internationally a while back, not sure how far they got though.

I'm in the US so have not tried Cheezly or Sheese. I tried veganrella and had to throw it out. I also threw out some sprinkle-Parmesan stuff in a short purple canister.



I do like Follow Your Heart's mozzarella and nacho cheese flavors, and Eat in the Raw grated cashew sprinkles.

I'm going to have to try this. I'm a LO veg*n but am trying to find good vegan products. I have always been afraid to try the cheese b/c I'm a cheese snob, but it sounds like it might be really good. Can't wait.

Cheezly is not as good as dairy cheeze but its the closest thing vegans have to good tasting cheese. You don't want to eat cheezly raw the first time, its best to make pizza with it or something where you melt it and eat it warm.

I think Vegan Gourmet Mozzerella is pretty good. It's a bit on the softer side than other vegan cheeses, however.



panthera: I cracked up when I read your post. I practically live on the sprinkle cheese in the purple can!! I just ordered four more cans. It did take a few weeks to grow accustomed to it though. My sister (omni) just tried it because I told her I like it and she was curious. She just laughed after tasting it.

oh great, now she probably thinks vegans are strange. JK so funny...



Have you tried Parma from Eat in the Raw? I've only had samples, but if I had to sprinkle anything, it'd be that or nutritional yeast. Then again, if you like it, then you don't need to switch, right? Well I'm pleased when any vegan product does well, so please keeping enjoying!

We like Sheese smoked cheddar. The smoky flavour is good raw on a cracker or crumbled in a soup. Yum!

****I have a blog--check me out!

I tried a normal version of cheezly (cheddar style I think) which wasn't very good, and a super melting mozarella style version of cheezly, which tastes great when melted

Tofutti "Better than Cream Cheese" is vegan, but the last time I looked, the tofutti slices were not.

I am a massive Cheezly fan, even my omni parents who are real dairy cheese fans love it. Tofutti cheese slices are also really nice and in the UK are definately vegan. Tofutti garlic and herb cream cheese is also pretty nice, especially on crackers with slices of Cheatin Ham, tomato and sprinkled with pepper.



I have only treied Scheeze once or twice and not for a few years. I didn't like it, I thought it tasted like Play-Doh!



The vegan cheeses available in the US I found to be awful when I was there last summer. Seriously nasty tasting and with an awful texture.



You can also make your own cheese, I have a book called The Uncheese Cookbook, although have never made anything from it yet.
