Which variety are you eating - the Mozarella (light yellow) or the American flavour (dark yellow/orange)? I MUCH prefer the Mozarella, and enjoy it both cold and melted. I have to say I am not really into the American flavour, it tastes too buttery or fatty or something!

Where I live we can only get the American style (small country town)

Bummer. That one is ok, but the Mozarella is much nicer. Maybe you could request that the shop you currently get the American flavour from also order in the Mozarella one? Many shops are willing to do that. Or maybe you can convince them to stock the Mozarealla one instead? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I think the slices are nasty cold or warm. I was only able to take a few bites of the sandwhich I made with them . Making a grilled "cheese" sandwhich with daiya is much better.

I do think they're better toasted. You need to include something else flavorful with them, though, because they're not good enough on their own.

I think they're better melted. Also, just a little bit of salt seems to improve their flavor- don't know if that's healthy advice or not.

Toffuti slices taste better to me toasted/melted and with other ingredients. For example, a grilled cheez sandwich with other things added such as hummus, tomato slices, avocado, spinach, lettuce, sprouts, olives, pickles, etc., take your pick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> We usually have soup with them too and I like to dip before I munch.

I don't like any soy cheese cold. The toffuti slices go well on mock bacon grilled "cheese" sandwichs

I thought the mozzarella style tofutti was ok when melted on a pizza (we don't have Daiya in Holland either). But that's the only way I liked it.

There honestly is a massive difference in the taste of the Mozarella and American flavours - I would definitely request the shop you currently get it from to stock the Mozarella one!

Go with Cheezly Edam, melted.

The packaging is different to the Mozarella one I get, so either it's a slightly different product or the packaging varies for different countries. I agree about Cheezly Edam, that's my all time favourite.

I never liked cheese cold, when I was vegetarian, with the exception of feta and Gouda. Everything else, for the most part, needed to be melted. Maybe small cold pieces in a salad, but that was it.<br><br>
As a vegan, I'm finding all my soy cheeses need to be melted. I quite like both the Tofutti mozza and American slices, melted on burgers or other types of sandwiches.

I bought a pack of the singles today. This thread has disheartened me a little <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I also had a choice between the mozzarella and the cheddar style, and picked the cheddar. I'm just hoping beyond hope that I'm weird and like them :p

Yeah, I was disappointed to see that so many people aren't crazy about them. I love them, personally. Not something I eat often, but it's delicious on top of a veggie burger.

That's exactly how I had it. Put it in the oven so it melted, piled the burger high with mushrooms, bit of ketchup... delicious <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I usually fry up the burgers on one side, flip them and put the cheese on top so it warms up a little. Sometimes after this I take the frying pan and hold it in the oven, set to broil. The cheese slices melt pretty fast. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Top it with ketchup, mustard, and pickles. Mmm, mushrooms sound awesome, too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
