    The chedder tasted of toffee and the mozerella tasted of vanilla. Still nice though.

    Have a tub of Feta in the fridge being slowly rationed out as i can get no more

    Prefer the toffuti slices as they make good cheese on toast.

    you might be better off to create a cheese sauce with the sheese if you add just one tablespoon or so to a sauce based on the free and easy cheese sauce. additionally, iīd recommend to add some parmezano and leave out the sheese if you want to. yeast flakes are also a great addition to create a cheese sauce...

    Creamy Sheese is great! I get the cheddar one they stock at Sainsbury's too. Smear it thickly onto brown toasty toast and cover with hot spaghetti hoOOOooOOoops! Cool.

    I get the smoked cheddar Sheese - it's really nice imo. Great for sandwiches, and has a nice distinctive flavour.

    I can't eat the creamy stuff though. Just not my thing.

    i've tried the mozarella one. yuck. can't help myself, i hate it (and i gave it a lot of tries in various recipes, but it failed them all). non-vegan members of the family were not thrilled either.

    super melting mozzarella Cheezly is the best I have tried! wouldn't eat it on crackers but its nice as a topping to lasagne, pizza and pasta. I had high hopes for scheese and managed to buy some in auckland when I was last up there and its horrible! ruined my food and had to pick it all off. I was never a fan of really strong cheese though and this had a really strong taste and after taste.

    Am just as happy with cashews on pasta now though

    I made my own 'cream cheese' a few months back from the cook book how it all vegan. Spring onion, tofu and cashews being the main ingredients, it was really nice!

    I really like the hard cheeses like the cheddar and smoked ones, but I just had the creamy soft cheddar style one and it was disgusting!! And I will normally eat just about anything that is vegan, but this was actually vile

    I will have to experiment with it by adding things to try and make it bearable...... bleurgh

    EDIT: on the website it talks about it being good grilled like on toast or pizza etc - anyone know if this redeems it?

    UPDATE: grilling is better... slightly better

    It sort of melts is you steam/cook it. I used it in a tofu omellete, put the lid on, sandwhiched between tofu and it somewhat melted. Other than that, no. It doesn't.

    I'm afraid I can't get on with Scheese at all, to me whichever one you buy they all taste inherently of plasticine.

    To me, vegan chesse, per se, is very disappointing.Some varieties taste like a weird type of plastic, most dont melt, and its just plain odd tasting.When you consider how so called meat substitutes taste good, ice cream tastes great, why is our cheese so poor?

    I completely agree, the vegan cheeses here are not very nice. Although when I went to flew to Ottawa for only a day last month I bought some Tofutti slices which were not bad at all. I'm in Quebec, so it's not exactly around the corner for me and they don't sell it here. What they sell here is disgusting, makes me want to set up my own vegan cheese making company, well at least for my own use.

    I miss cheezly, I bought that loads in the UK (sob). I make my own cheeses from the uncheese cookbook, some are nice, but I haven't found any good replacements in Quebec yet.

    Eating Sheese tasted like how goat piss smells mixed with a plasticky flavour shaped into a non-meltable piece of rubber. I don't know if it was the particular variety I had, but it was enough to never want to have any of their sheeses again.

    I've had cheezly go moldy regularly and very often I've had implants packages which developed a huge air pocket in days before the expiration date and were about to explode. I was always checking the expiration date with cheezly.

    I've never had cheezly go mouldy, but I have had it go rock hard after being out in the air for a couple of hours. Then again, like Cobweb, I've had half opened packets in the fridge for up to ten days and be totally edible. My OH likes both cheezly and Sheese. The big weirdo.

    I have had Cheezly go mouldy if I left a half-eaten pack in the fridge for a few days - mind you I discovered recently that our fridge had got turned down (up?) somehow and was a lot warmer than it ought to have been.

    Talking of mouldy cheese, I read somewhere (possibly the Vegan Society's mag) that they are going to be introducing a "blue" version of Cheezly, and in fact it seems to be on the Goodness Direct site already. Anyone tried that?

    I may have mentioned already that although as a rule I like cheezly and dislike most of the sheeses I've tried, I do think the smoked cheddar sheese is rather nice, and a little added to a white sauce does go a long way to jazz it up.

    When sealed packages are all puffed up it means the item has gone bad. The bacteria inside have multiplied loads, they produce gasses as they multiply so the package gets all puffy. I wouldn't eat it anymore. With cheezly I always used to return the puffy unopened packages if they were within expiration dates for fresh ones. It happened very often with the cheezly I bought and I did buy cheezly a lot.

    Agreed, I wouldn't use those "blown" packages. On the other hand, I might slice off a small amount of superficial mould and use what's left, although I know some people are concerned about that too.

    Why yes, they had it in the trio pack that was selling in H&B in December. It was smoked, pepperjack and blue style cheezly. It was blurry lovely! Sadly, I'm not really one for buying food online as I get moody over the delivery charges.

    I had the blue sheese once... much prefer the cheezly version.
