They have french onion cream cheese? I never seen it. I like the herbs and chives.

Ohhhhhhhhhh yes they do and it is awesome :)

I tried the herbs and chives and its pretty good but I didn't like the aftertaste....

Same here, I thought the flavour was great but it wasn't worth it for me with that awful aftertaste.

Apr 23rd, 2006, 06:45 PM
I never had any aftertaste????

after a very long search, i managed to find the redwood 'super melting' cheezley, edam style.

its VERY good..really nice taste. i like it much better than the cheddar style one..this one is more creamy tasting. i ate almost half the block in one day, just slicing bits off..mmmm. i am going to make a pizza with it :D

I never tried real edam cheese before.

I hope someone makes a nice HARD cheese that you can enjoy with crackers.

i havent tried real edam either, so i dont know if it really does taste like it...all i know is that its nice :D lovely.

just had some corn tortillas which i spread with vegan marg and then put some grated Cheezly mature White Cheddar style on them, rolled them up and put them in the oven for a few minutes, YuM :)

I think your theory is right in general, Gorilla I might be the exception that proves the rule.
Im tending to prefer the melting cheezly now to scheese, though. But I also think the hickory=smoked scheese is by far the best of the scheese range, so maybe youll like that one?

i tried Scheese for the first time the other day, and it proves my theory - that *most* people who eat cheese substitutes only like either Cheezly or Scheese, rarely both. i like Cheezly, but Scheese was absolutely disgusting. it made me feel sick. :p stupidly i bought two packs in case one flavour tasted better than the other - i tried the cheddar one and now have an unopened pack of hickory-smoked flavour that i'm really not looking forward to tasting... :eek:

hmm, i still haven't braved the hickory smoked Scheese yet - but i will post my opinion when i do!

Hi there!

I didnt get on with Cheezly either, tried a few flavours but just can't get used to the taste. I now have toffutti mozzarella style slices, they melt really well on cheese on toast & tastes almost the same as cheese!

i tried them and they were nice. they're full of hydrogenated oils though aren't they? i have to say they melted really well though.

I haven't made this yet, but I saw a recipe for plant based Feta cheese. It's in VegNews, June 2006 issue, page 59. Looks good!

I love chreese. I could eat it every day.

I love Cheezly, although find the Mozarella is a little disappointing taste wise, not a great deal of flavour.

I'd love to try some vegan feta or cottage cheese.

I don't suggest Vegan Rella, it was awful in my opinion.

May 14th, 2006, 04:34 AM
lol - I love veganrella but only in melted form.

The only vegan cheeses I've found are Scheese & Cheezly, neither of which I can stomach. The tofutti cream cheese is pretty nice, but in small doses. They often seem to have a nasty texture & aftertaste & I think I'd rather do without!

is cheese in the US quite different to cheese in the UK or Australia?? Because when I'm trying out recipes that are supposed to be for toasted sandwiches and things, I end up with a bright orange thing that rather mustardy... I tried a recipe for 'gee-wizz' cheese sauce too, which was similar. Is there a lot of tangy orange cheese about in the US or is it just what vegan stuff turns out as????!

And what do people consider the best for a toasted sandwich (esp in a sandwich toaster)? I think I've tried cheezly but found it a bit oily and weird tasting. I had trouble finding scheeze but have tasted some uncooked and didn't really like it. I've mostly been using the tangy orange sauce recipes for the few times I'm made toasties but it doesn't quite hit the spot :(

North Americans seem to really like processed cheese and cheddar cheeses. Maybe those US-based vegan cheese recipes are trying to immitate that?

I made some vegan cheezly straws with the Gouda cheese:


They were goood!

Brush some melted pure and soya milk onto some ready-rolled rolled out puff pastry. Put grated gouda cheesly on top. Cut into strips and bake for a bit until golden.

hmmm they look nice :)

I have heard several people raving about how delicious Scheese is recently. I bought a block when I first turned vegan and had to throw most of it away (a rare thing as it was expensive and I was an impoverished student at the time) but I thought I should give it another try as that was nearly 10 years ago, so I've just had some (cheddar flavour) thinly sliced on toast.

Well, it's still not very nice, in my opinion. That is, the first taste is alright, but then it goes into overdrive - it's almost like someone got some of that dried parmesan stuff and bound it together. Think I'm going to try the rest in a tofu and mushroom quiche, see if diluting it a bit makes it any better.

Yes, I don't like vegan cheese either, I've tried Scheeze and Cheezly and not wanting to be overly descriptive here but they smelt like sick!
I put some on a baked potato once and the smell alone made me feel ill, so now I just stick to red onion and beans on baked potato, it's much nicer.
Come to think of it the smell of cheese and butter now makes me feel ill too.
