i'll still try them, too. if they aren't worse than normal daiya shreds and blocks, i think the convenience factor will be good enough reason to buy them.

i'm actually way more excited for the new gardein and tofurky stuff after reading that insufferable vegan post.

Yeah, I'm kinda stoked for the gardein jerky. I'm so jealous of Insufferable Vegan for getting to sample all this good stuff.

I am excited to try them for the convenience factor! It's nice to get new stuff, regardless. I can always decide I don't like it, but I've learned to not trust the online reviews, because everyone has such different tastes in these things. I feel like vegan cheese is the biggest non-consensus of all food I can think of ever, pretty much.

Yeah, I'm still confused about the rave reviews daiya havarti has when I think it's gross - but I like other daiya flavors. And I'm not too picky about authenticity because I was never a cheese person and probably never even tried real Swiss or provolone. I'm just excited for slices - none of my regular haunts carry any type of vegan cheese in slice form.

Name a vegan product and most likely 50% will declare it the grossest thing ever, and 50% will wants to have its babies. I hear some people even like Nayonnaise, which proves the point.

And some people will declare it the grossest thing ever and still want to have its babies. Like Tofutti pizza.

I'll be crushed if the Swiss sucks though. Crushed!

Hah. That was actually my expression of undying Tofutti pizza affection.

This may be overly optimistic, but surely Daiya slices will at least be better than the slices that exist now. The galaxy slices do have their uses (mainly for the kid's lunch) but they don't do a very good job of melting or being tasty.

Well, I'm eager to try the swiss. The harvati wedge was gross on a cracker, at least to me, but I like the Amy's macaroni & cheese so there is hope. It may be good all melty on a reuben.

All three Daiya pizzas are already for sale at my local Whole Foods! I haven't tried them yet but the mushroom and garlic one looks pretty tasty. No sign of the slices yet though which is what I'm really excited for.

I bought the provolone and cheddar slices today. Tonight I melted the provolone in a wrap...I thought it was pretty gross. The flavor is very pungent, and not at all of dairy-provolone, which I remember as being a very mild cheese. It sort of seems like a white version of the cheddar.

I still haven't tried the cheddar.

I tried the provolone in a grilled cheese this weekend. I thought it tasted less of plastic than the shreds but I wouldn't use it again. I just don't enjoy the taste. It did melt well in the grilled cheese, however.

I had cheezly grilled cheese a couple of weeks ago and it sets the bar high.

Brian and I found them in Champaign on Friday, so we picked up the swiss and provolone. To try them I just put a slice on a piece of bread and broiled them. The swiss was very mild, almost sweet tasting. The provolone was very 'stinky cheese' tasting. I don't think either of them really tasted like their namesakes, but I agree that they taste fine and if you want to make a grilled cheese, obviously it's easier than the shreds. I would probably buy the swiss over the provolone since like Nebraskalaska said, it's really strong. I didn't try the cheddar because I assumed it was a lot like the shreds and block.

Except nut cheeses, i've never found a vegan cheese where you could just open the package and pop it in your mouth and have it taste fine (except the daiya havarti because of the jalapeno). I can eat the jack wedge with crackers, but not plain. I can use the shreds in a tortilla with no spices and be fine, but I wouldn't use them uncooked in a salad or anything.

So I found the Swiss and Cheddar slices in WF South Street the other day, naturally I was pumped and picked them up. Let me preface this by saying, I like the shreds and LOVE the wedges, especially when served with crackers. I tried the swiss first and ate it with some multigrain crackers and I thought it was the shiitake - like, life-changing AMAZING. Then I tried it again the next day and rolled it with a tofurkey slice before making a grilled cheese with it. It tasted SO sweet when paired with something savory. I didn't notice it when eating it with the slightly-sweet cracker, but the sweet taste was so prevalent in my sandwich that it ruined my grilled cheese. It even had a sweet aftertaste. Then I read the ingredients again and somewhere in the middle was brown rice syrup.

No, but seriously. I don't remember swiss cheese being sweet. Why the heck is the swiss so sweet? Ugh. I am hoping the provolone slices will be better. I have faith that the cheddar will be decent, because I couldn't imagine it being different than the cheddar wedge.

Anyway, daiya, if you are reading this, I don't think you need the brown rice syrup, or maybe think about adding less of it. It very much overpowers the taste.

I got the cheddar at Whole Foods Louisville on Tuesday...had it on a veggie burger for lunch when I got home and I thought it was great. It is stronger flavored than the cheddar wedge (which I think tastes more like American) but it's tasty.

Fascinating!!



I actually tried the aforementioned mayo product above for the first time in YEARS the other day, not really having any issues with it in the past (although I didn't grow up eating mayo, and tend to buy Vegenaise when I do) and barf. It was so slimy and thick and tofu-tasting.

Bought the provolone last night, on its own unmelted it didnt taste like provolone at all (from what I remember) provolone is a pretty mild cheese and this is very sharp, not very pleased with it...I just melted some of it on a tofu english muffin sandwich and it seemed ok, its no Havarti thats for sure and its certainly not going to change my mind about how I buy some diaya maybe 3 times a year

Has anyone tried the cream cheese? I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Cream cheese is the number one thing i miss from my pregan days and so far i have failed to find an adequate substitute.

I'm eating the cheddar on a grilled cheese right now. I don't like it. It liquefies when melted like FYH. I think I'll stick with the cheddar shreds, even if it makes my grilled cheese making a bit more complicated.

i got a package of swiss. it's okay, but it's not swissy enough. it's too mild. (with all of your reviews of the provolone, it sounds like i should have gotten that.) i had it in cold sandwiches, and it kinda disappeared. then i tried it on crackers with yellow mustard. meh.

the packaging is better than the wedges (i always had difficulty resealing the wedges) but i really wish there was a better package so i could squeeze the air out. it's wasteful tossing the packaging and putting it into a fresh lunch baggie.

I tried the Swiss and Provolone this weekend, and I'm pretty disappointed. The Swiss is so cloyingly sweet and has virtually no Swiss-like taste. The Provolone was better, but only when melted. I do like having a nice slice to slap on a sandwich without cutting up a block, but I wish they tasted more similar to dairy Swiss and Provolone. Ah well.
