AMAZING. I love everything about this (except for the initial rant).

Actually, the initial rant filled me with glee because it is just so inane. As I said on FB, whenever I see someone expressing this level of impassioned fury about vegan products using the (apparently sacred) names of their critter-based analogues, I can't help thinking their energy might be directed towards something that's actually important. Like...I don't know, how about the torture and exploitation of billions of animals so they can satisfy their weird fixation with someone else's fermented breast milk? And Sainsbury's has played it perfectly; I look forward to picking up a few packages of Gary when I'm in England next month!

Sign me up. I've got some Gary Provolone in my fridge!

Seriously, though, the caption on that (LOL) Liam Neeson taken meme in the second article points out that the originator of Gary has 1. calmed don and 2. is actually learning about veganism and willing to try some Gary herself now. As the OP pointed out, she's done more to raise vegan awareness than most of us! Ha!

btw, anyone seen that there is some kind of Miyoko's promo going on right now? I saw $1 coupons in both WF and my locally owned grocery, good for any product, be it Gary or Wanda (I assume that's what we're calling 'butter' now)

I looked up #gary on IG and it's half vegan cheese! Ha haha. The other half seems to be postings from Korea. Footy, you're studying Korean! Does 'Gary' mean something in Korean? 'Cheese substitute' perhaps?

I don't know a word like that. I looked up some possible Korean garys in the dictionary:

가리 "fish net"

게리 "Gary"

개리 "Gary"

Now, my dictionary's not so great, but it doesn't look like "gary" means anything relevant in Korean.

The best part about this is that the Gary in question was not claiming to be cheese. I'm not sure about the UK, but I know in many places you can't call things by their animal-product-name unless they have the product in them. Making the rant doubly-silly. Didn't it say like "substitute for cheese" or something? And have the fact it's coconut clearly labeled?

Anyway I am 100% on board the Gary train.

Yeah pretty much everything here is "alternative to cheese" or "alternative to milk" or "almond drink" etc. It's not labelled "cheese". The person themselves decided it was convincing enough that they could get it confused with cheese and that made them mad!

It is a reoccurring thing I see on a lot of UK pages at least "but you're vegan why would you try to imitate cheese/sausages/burgers" because of course we all became vegan because we hated the taste of all that.

This is so majestic.

Also, I am envious of Sainsbury's offering a whole line of vegan cheeses?! You lucky UK people!!

I had some toast with Miyoko's Gary this morning and I didn't even realize. :D

The Gary thing is amazing and is cracking me up.

But seriously, I don't understand people saying that you can only use a word for a food item if it's made from the traditional ingredient. I mean, do they get upset when people say "coconut milk" instead of coconut "juice" or whatever? We use words for food based on what they act as in a recipe. Most people call tomatoes and bell peppers vegetables even though we know they're actually fruits because they work more like vegetables in cooking. The texture and flavor is more important than whatever species they actually belong to.

coconut milk
the flesh of fruits
eggplant
peanut butter
nut meat
toe cheese

Somehow we all cope just fine with these. Especially toe cheese.

If the toes are on a vegan, would you call it toe Gary?

Someone has suggested Gary's nut milk as a new name for coconut milk.
