    It's strange that they haven't put anything on their website about about it but that sounds cool to me

    i got confused by the title of this thread, shouldn't it read 'Pure margarine'. but that would be interesting - as long as they're definitely going to be vegan are they? hope i get to try them. i hear about a lot of these sort of things but never see them in shops.

    Interesting. More chance of that brand getting into mainstream shops as well I would think, if they already order in Pure spread.

    turns out that so much of what I used to eat as an omni in Ireland was made by them.

    But are the new products advertised on those brands?

    I'm going to be optimistic in thinking that as the new products are advertised on the Pure brand that they will be vegan.

    can't do any harm, even if it turns out not to be vegan reminds them of there being a vegan market

    coming soon...your dairy free and delicious alternative to cheese

    Guessing if it's dairy free it's probably gonna be vegan (fingers crossed from no ceasin)

    Unless it melts it doesnt really bother me. I found cheese unless it's melted in something completely gross anyway... I can just about stand cheezly on my enchiladas

    Looks promising. Pure are dedicated to being completely dairy free (so no casein), there's a lot of info about dairy allergy and intolerance on their website and their range of margarines are fortified with D2 and not D3 so they're clued up on not using animal derived vitamins too. I'm fully expecting the cheeses to be vegan.

    I've yet to find a vegan cheese that I like so I'm hoping that the Pure cheeses are good.

    That's good. Not sure I actually liked the Dairylea ones much so vegan ones are bound to be an improvement in more than one sense

    well i have high hopes for them as i think the butter/margarine is good and my family prefer it to other non vegan brands so im hoping the slices and triangels will be just as good i cant wait especially the triangles to have spread on celery sticks yum

    Excellent. I like it that people who aren't vegan 'unsuspectingly' use pure margarine, and it would be great if it were the same with their cheesy things.

    Yeah, it was bound to be vegan if they were advertising it on Pure - the very point of which, being that it's dairy free.

    Hey Mchelle81, welcome to VF! I haven't seen your posts before.
    Could I just make a polite request for you to use a little punctuation? I'm finding it a bit tricky to read your posts. Cheers!
