Glad to know that there are gluten and diary free cheese options out there that are good.  I’m thinking I might have a problem with one of those two.

When I first switched to a vegan diet Daiya was my savior, lol. I don’t eat it anymore but I remember the discovery day!

Daiya is pretty good stuff!  We eat a lot of Trader Joe’s almond “cheese” shreds around here, too, since FI needs to keep low on the soy.  But I’ve come to prefer the vegan cheese on (gf) pizza, admittedly!

@chercee:  I’m vegan (minus days where I can’t resist cheese on my pizza. Guess I’m not 100% vegan :-/ Haha!) but ive been so nervous to try this stuff!!! Any particular kind of daiya “cheese” that’s the best? I’ve heard it’s awesome or terrible lol

@chercee:  I love daiya! We don’t buy it very often, but it’s aweeesome on pizza. Tastes super weird raw though haha. I’ve heard the cream cheese is amazing!

DH can’t have any dairy, so I buy him Daiya occasionally. He likes the mozzarella flavor better than the cheddar one. Yes, a little does go a long way. I dumped it all over a pizza once like I’d do with actual cheese and the end result was this gross, overpowering, funky taste.

He also likes the Veggie Slices “cheese”. I think it’s rice cheese. Jalepeno is actually very good. Luckily we can get all sorts of stuff like this at our supermarket.

My husband’s restaurant makes a vegan pizza with it and it is soooooo good. I actually have some in my fridge right now. Might have to eat a slice!

First time I have ever heard of it. Maybe I need to search it out.
