Now to add the tragedy of the U.S. cheezly drought, the U.S. importer for sheese has stopped importing it. Oh, nonmelting vegan cheese gods, what did we do to deserve this?

sigh, i'm such a vegan noob that i can't even fully appreciate the tragic news you are sharing :(

next time I'm at EarthFare I'll have to see if they even carry cheezly or sheese, and if they do, buy some to try! but then if i like it, it would be so sad knowing i couldn't get anymore :(

I'll save you the trouble...Earth Fare doesn't carry either one. They carry Daiya, Rice Vegan, and Vegan Gourmet here.

sad, but probably for the best, as i mentioned above it would be sad to taste the last bit of cheezey goodness and love it and not be able to get it anymore.

i definitely have seen daiya at my earthfare, and i think vegan gourmet too.

They're still selling 'em on Vegan Essentials. What's the best kind so I can try it while I still have the chance?

I have heard and have been stocking up at Food Fight. And am trying to make a move to get some black market cheezly up in here.

Why is vegan cheeze from the UK so much better?

I don't know if it's the best, but I'd recommend the blue cheese because there's nothing else similar on the market (that I know of).

If any of you poor dears in the sheeseless heathen lands need a care package*, let me know. I can send sheese, cheezly, Ma Baker bars, Pink Panther wafers, vegan Starburst...

* food swap - will trade fake cheeses for Gimme Lean and Clif Builders Bars.

Because they have all things that are good: medieval and early modern architecture, endless hedgerows, real ale pubs, a bazillion sheep, Linda Mac sausages, no disgusting hot summers or butt-freezing winters...life is better there. Le sigh.

But it tastes like bogies! Soy-free cheezly for the win (though the rest aren't anything special).

Having experience a Cheezly pizza and a Daiya pizza, I must disagree. Daiya is gross.

My lovely girlfriend ate what was likely the final package of strong cheddar sheese in the Portland area while I was away on vacation. (Or maybe it was gouda, whichever was the last of its kind at Food Fight!)


I'm intrigued by Vegusto and I keep hearing it's coming to the US, but I'm allergic to treenuts and my heart belongs to Cheezly.

I don't know whether to apologize, to try to justify it, or to be like "yeah, damn right I did." None of those seem right.

I think saying 'Damn right I did' while eating another block of Sheese is a good response.

Followed by, "And I'll do it again, too!"

I just found out about this today, at Sidecar.

I'm still in the first stage of grief.

Yeah, if anyone I'm meeting on my US adventure wants Cheezly or Sheese (which is made in Scotland, by the way), PM me and we'll come to an arrangement.

I'm going to investigate at Food Fight! this week. It won't be as sad as Cheezly, but, AYE.

Thank goodness for the Artisan Vegan Cheeses book.
