Today I am reviewing
So excited to find this (along with Violife sliced and slabbed cheese) during my Tesco shop this weekend. I’ve been disappointed with every soft/cream dairy-free cheese I’ve ever found so I hoped this would fill the creamy cheesey void in my life.
What is it:
Completely vegan and dairy-free soft cheese
Made largely from coconut oil(!)
Thus suitable for:
Nice little white and green rectangular tub (stands out because soft cheese seems to invariably be in rounded tubs)
I found the inner plastic lining really hard to get into (could be because I was concentrating hard to be as quiet as possible so not to wake Toddlerini).
Clear freefrom list
‘Philadelphia’ style soft cheese rather than ‘Dairylea’ which reminds me more of butter
Very mildly cheesey
Not vaguely of coconut
Doesn’t appear to melt (when placed on a freshly baked potato for instance)
Creamy (it is called creamy)
Mild cheesey taste
Far nicer than the other dairy-free soft cheeses I’ve tried previously
£2 in Tesco (usually £2.49 the price card said…)
I really liked this and I can’t really fault it except I would have perhaps liked a slightly cheesier taste.
It is soya free and I’m pretty sure that’s rare for a ‘fake’ soft cheese.
My meat-munching, cheese-gobbling husband ate it without any complaints.
Seems a very versatile product you could probably make a yummy cheesey sauce or….oh my goodness…you could try to make a cheesecake!
4/5 – very nice but if it was just a little bit cheesier it would be perfect.
No Moo, No Sick!
