    This has just bought back too many bad memories of cruelly dashed high expectations.

    I think they counted on vegans having very low expectations of vegan cheese

    I think it probably tastes quite good compared to dairy cheese slices

    Tried both of these last week. The slices are dry and virtually tasteless, I think they do smell quite like cheese slices though. The spread tastes more like ice-cream than cheese, it's horribly sweet. They should sell it frozen as a Mr Whippy alternative.

    The slices are pretty good on burgers, not so great on their own.

    Ditto - they were the most exciting offering.

    Considering their excellent margarine they majorly failed at cheese production.

    I bought a couple of packs the other day.
    They do seem to be stocked in supermarkets in the most unlikely areas.

    I rather like the cream cheese, i think its yummy on thick granary toast, with a sprinkling of toasted seeds on top. I feel like such a freak now lol

    Yeah the slices are good if you put them on other things, much like those made by tofutti. I don't mind the cream cheeze, it's a little sweet but as long as it's complimented with something a little sour (like tomatoes or olives) it's good.

    We want triangles though! Meh!

    (I've sent them an email)

    how is it possible that they can make such a lovely marg type spread yet their 'cheese' range is almost inedible?
    totally agree with you Hel,marg is fab yet tasted the 'cheese' spread and was nearly sick can tollerate the slices if smoothered with 'mayo' on a thick bread and only if there wasnt anything else to eat and i was about to die of starvation

    Oh come on they aren't that bad, most vegan cheeses taste weird unless you combine them with other things

    I think so too, I thought vegan cheese was gross when I first tried it but now I like it much better.

    sheeze blue cheese is an exception but generally vegan cheese needs to be on things.
    Mind you that's how I felt about cheese before anyway.

    The pure cheeses, slices and spread aren't bad cooked on a pizza. But aren't so hot on there own, I prefer the cheezly, but then I never liked the blue sheeze(isle of bute?), so each to there own.

    I really want to have a vegan triangle, like the dairylea I used to have as a kiddie!

    Ew. I found these a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't even finish one slice. They were awful, simply awful. Even my non-picky husband didn't like them. I don't really dig the Tofutti either, but they are tolerable in a sandwich or something. These Pure slices were vile. Run my good vegans, run!

    I got this response to my email asking for the status of the fabled triangles -

    "thanks for your enquiry, there are no plans at present to manufacture
    triangles but if and when we do we will let you know on the web site. I
    hope you continue to enjoy our Pure range"

    It's probably not a bad thing - they'd probably be the slices in triange shape, or the cream cheese set up with agar.

    I've just had the pure soya 'soft and creamy' spread. I didn't like it to be honest, it's meant to be like soft cheese, but I had it on a cracker and it was more like putting thick cream on a cracker! That's what it tasted like. I imagine it would be a good ingredient though, if you were making a creamy tomato sauce or something, where you would be adding flavour with other ingredients.
    Exactly my thought too. To me it tasted far too sweet, like it had a load of sugar in it for some reason. also the texture seemed wrong somehow - I will not be buying it again suffice to say.

    Sent an email to Pure because for ages they haven't been stocking the cheese slices in my local Morrisons. Wondered whether they had discontinued the line in the whole makeover thing.

    Just received this back:

    Hi
    At present the Brand Team have decide to improve our Dairy Free Cheese
    Range which is why they are unavailable. We would however like to keep
    your details on file for when they are available in the future.
    Kind Regards

    Julie Dyson
    The Pure Team


    So we might require another taste testing session in the near future!

    I never saw the cheese slices anywhere near me. I wonder if I will do in the future then although judging by the above comments i will have to hope they taste better!
