I used to get 'Swedish Soft' made by the same people who do Swedish Glace.

It was the best soya cream cheese I have ever had but I can't find it anywhere now.

Sheese - varieties are here: http://www.buteisland.com/

(Also, since not all makes of cheese substitute are available in every country, won't this just reflect the relative numbers of members from each country rather than which product is the best? That is, the top ten may well be the ten cheese substitutes available in the country with the biggest member population - and even if every single member in, say, Holland voted for one cheese substitute, it would likely come out lower down the list than the least favourite American cheese substitute.)

Daiya!

I totally agree.

And for cream cheese I would definitely go with tofutti.

Vegerella. A rubbery vegan mozzarella type thing. Unusual in that it's made from pea protien rather than soya, and so does not have the usual stink about it.

Quite useful for melting on pizza, toast or used in vegan quiche.

I wonder if it might be worth having separate polls for the US and UK (and anywhere else that wants to join in), because I think we have some that people in the US can't easily get, and vice versa.

I want to try that!:(

I've never even heard of that one. I'm going to look out for it.

We Can't Say It's Cheese! All 4 types!

Edit: As requested by Korn below, here are some useful links

The website for the company is here (http://wayfarefoods.com)
It is available through Vegan Essentials (http://store.nexternal.com/shared/StoreFront/product_detail.asp?RowID=2891) and shortly with Pangea
(The Hickory flavor is the best)

Maybe that's a good idea? Or we could have one poll, but have each product listed with the location added in a parenthesis, after the name of the product - eg. Cheezly (UK), or Cheezly (Europe).

One more thing: if you have some extra time, please add a link to the product you suggest - this way I can easily include these links in the list over reply options in the poll itself. (See example above - in the not-yet-open poll!).



Who makes Vegerella and Veganrella - anyone?

I've only ever seen one health food shop here which sells vegan cheese here around Bologna, and it's 25km away from me (it's in Modena). None of the supermarkets sell it.

I tried a couple of varieties from this one shop and they were both dreadful (i don't remember the brands, I'm afraid).

I've been having Pure Slices in my sandwiches lately. They go very well with salad and Salad Cream, and are inexpensive at 1.59 for ten. Pure advertised their cheesy products months ago but these have only just appeared in the last month at a local Health Food Store. It would be nice for major supermarkets to take a risk with these seeing as Pure spreads are widely available in the UK these days. The slices are also excellent on Beanburgers which I far prefer to Soya burgers.

They also do a 'Cheese' Spread but I have yet to find anywhere that sells it.

I'm surprised no one has suggested Vegusto yet. I'll try to find links.

Edit: seven different kinds on this page: http://www.vegusto.co.uk/shop/2-no-moo-cheese

Follow Your Hear: Nacho Gourmet! That's my all time favorite! Gives my meals a Mexican kick!!!

Galaxy Nutritional Vegan Veggie Slices are good too (especially pepperjack).

I love spicy food & spices in general.

I was going to suggest separate polls for the US and Europe as you can't get several of those listed here but I see I would be repeating myself :o

For the Euro one, I would definitely add Vegusto (which I'd vote for) as suggested by Indian Summer, and also Vegourmet (which I wouldn't).

Vegerella is made by a company called Biddy Merkins, I dont think they have a website but you can see it here (http://sumawholesale.com/index.php/chilled/cheese-substitutes-chilled/biddy-merkins-vegerella-cheddar-organic-6-x-170g-cv101.html). I tried it once. It was exceptionally bad.
