What is the best brand of vegan "cheese"? I tried Veganrella the other day and it was pretty good, although I hear Vegan Gourmet is better.

Judging by others' comments, I think the best vegan cheese is just no cheese at all

We've been eating Vegan Gourmet recently - and it is really good. Mild and creamy tasting - and it does kind of melt. I like it. Enough that I will even eat a piece just on its own.

I like Vegan Gourmet but I haven't tried Cheezly or Teese, based on PG's enthusiastic recommendations I'd love to try Teese but haven't seen in WF or TJ's in Manhattan.

I actually found Teese at a restaurant that I usually dine in. They sell vegan products as well. Unfortunately, I have yet to see Teese at WF. It is delicious!



I know they offer it online at Veganstore.com and veganessentials.com

I think it's time for Teese and Cheezly to fight it out. First, they will compete in melting, and then they will proceed to be grated. The last stage of the fight will be a taste comparison, judged by an objective panel of judges, formed by me and my three hypothetical sons.

There is a vegan cheese at one of my favorite diners in Manhattan called Big Nick's. It is by far the best vegan cheese I've ever tasted and worth selling my as of yet unborn children for. I have to ask them what it is.

For some reason WF wont sell any Chicago Soy Dairy products including Teese and the awesome Temptation Ice Cream, I love the Green Tea ice cream! Luckily by the studios there is a great HFS.

I tried some Scheese at the last veg fest I went to, and it was good, better than Vegan Gourmet. But I hear that Cheezly is better than Scheese. I haven't tried Teese yet.

Even solidified snot from Ralph Wiggum's nose is better than Scheese

Well it's okay when melted and mixed with some chopped bell peppers and garlic.

Is it vegan though? Does Ralph mind having his nose milked? I wouldn't want the Vegan Gods to strike me with lightning for trying this you know, if its not really vegan.

If I remember correctly, Ralph Wiggum offers his solidified snot willingly. By that standard, does it make it vegan?

If you like bagels and cream cheese, vegan gourmet cream cheese is the best!

Mozzarella is okay, but cheddar doesn't melt. Try Edam, melted.

Never tried Cheezly, but I guess I'm going to have to based on the reviews.

I don't like any of the vegan cheeses I've tried. Cheezly fills me with horror, to me it has a very odd, sort of chemical taste.



I do want to try Teese but until it becomes available in the UK I'll stick with nutritional yeast sauce for cheesiness.

it's weird how like we go vegan in order to avoid animal foods, and then we feel like we need to replace them all. i know vegan gourmet and these cheeses have no animal products in them, but i mean, is it still vegan, persay? i dunno. not wanting animal products makes us vegans, and i guess needing a replacement just makes us human. afterall, if we truly believed we were herbivores, why would we need replacement cheese?

no not wanting to harm animals makes us vegan. the quest for delicious flavor is a completely different subject. I think a lot of vegans didn't give up meat because they didn't like the flavor.
