Agreed! I love it on grilled cheese, it has the same sort of smooth creamy texture and mild flavour as the grilled cheese made with Kraft singles I used to have as a kid. It's also great on nachos or pizza or anywhere else you want that taste and consistency.Originally Posted by silva
The more I have Daiya the more I like it! First bag was mozzerella. When it was gone I thought "it's just ok. prob wouldn't buy again" I recently bought cheddar. I had some on chili and found it amazing. Today I just made a grilled daiya. That was amazing! Daiya doesn't replace the finer varities of cheese, but it is just like whats called American, or even cheap cheddars. .
Agree on the grilled cheese! I use both flavors. I've also made mac and cheese with the cheddar. It comes out nice and creamy, though it doesn't reheat well, so it's best to make it in small batches.Originally Posted by Werewolf Girl

I'm wondering if eventually they'll come out with a firmer creamy cheese with a sharper flavour, something closer to the good stuff. I'm already impressed but it would be amazing to have something I like in macaroni and cheese or to have sliced on sandwiches. If they ever come up with a hard cheese good enough to serve on its own with toothpicks I will consider the battle of the vegan cheese truly won
What is the refrigerated shelf life?
Daiya vegan products have the same refrigerated shelf life as dairy cheese. Once the package is opened it is good for 7 - 10 days in the fridge.
Does it freeze?
Yes, Daiya can be frozen and reheated. It will retain its melting, stretching and flavour properties. Like most products, you shouldn't re-freeze Daiya after it has already been frozen and thawed.
