This post is going to be a complete shit storm, and I apologize in advance. But VEGAN CHEESE. Im going to try to keep this post short and sweet, because The Good Lord knows that I can (and have) rant forever about my thoughts on vegan cheese.
Now, let me start by saying that I love being vegan. I love this lifestyle, it works for me, Ive never felt better. In my time of being vegan I’ve tried some really incredible vegan food and vegan alternatives. Like, vegan mayo, or vegan ranch. Both of those dairy free alternatives are 11/10. Highly recommended. But vegan cheese…not just any vegan cheese, Daiya cheese. It’s the worst. Im sorry Daiya, but your “cheese” is inedible.
Where do I even begin. The package says “melts and stretches”, but let me tell you, audience, it doesn’t do either of those things. Its a garbage product, my dog wont even eat it and he eats his own sh**. Lets not exclude the other products by Daiya, because I honestly did give them a fighting chance to redeem themselves after ruining my margarita pizza with their shredded rubber. I tried their cream cheese. Now, it is very possible to be GOOD vegan cream cheese, I know because Ive made my own in the past and it tasted great (if I do say so myself), but somehow they managed to ruin that too! The taste is so indescribable.. it taste fake… like I shouldn’t be eating it. My mouth just completely rejects it. So I was like “okay, well maybe (just maybe) their mac and cheese isn’t so bad. This was their last shot to redeem themselves, after this I was done. If they could prove to me that they can do at least one thing right, then I wouldn’t write this post. Incredible….incredible how they managed to f**k that up too.
I just want to know, who’s working in that factory, sitting in a conference room, trying all these vegan alternatives and going “yup, taste good! Send ‘er out!” Because I personally want to go up to that person and smack them. How dare they. How dare they sell that over priced rubber bullshit in stores. Seriously who “OK’s” this crap.
With all that being said, im going to link some recipes or my favorite homemade vegan cheese to save everyone from eating something thats one molecule away from being a rubber band…
