Are they both melty, or just the white?

So is the cheddar cheese nice? I mean, does it taste remotely like cheddar cheese?

I thought it tasted cheddar-y, as much as I remember actual cheddar cheese. It was good enough. The cheddar spread isn't as good. It has a wang to it, though I can't exactly put my finger on what's not quite right. I'll probably finish it, but I doubt I'll buy it again.

I had the cheddar shredded finely in hot tacos, so it melted. I don't know how well it would do in other circumstances.

Boo. My huge, suburban Tesco didn't have any of the new stuff, and customer services were totally clueless too, just telling me to call the head office for more info. It's strange since this particular branch is always pretty well-stocked with other vegan & health foods.

So I just used the orange cheese (medium is what it's called, not cheddar) sliced in a sammich. It is definitely not melty like that. It just kinda went greasy. It still tasted OK, but I would recommend shredding if you want to melt it.

We bought one of pretty much everything last night......

As far as we can tell it's just alpro and scheese in bad packaging

That's not overly a bad thing - we like both alpro and scheese - if they end up being cheaper then it's not bad thing.

The creme caramel was a novelty, but sadly crepe. The caramel far too thin and the custard not up to normal standard (i.e. birds + soy milk).

The cheese melts, pretty well. Quite happy.

I had the mild cheese in fajita type affair last night. I don't know if it melted as I just wrapped it up but it tasted ok.

We must be crappy Tesco twins. I went to my local one last night and nothing, not even a space where it should be!

The Tesco by my flat only has the new soy milks. Otherwise there's no trace of a new line.

I went especially to the huge Tesco in York which is always great for unusual stuff. Couldn't see anything so asked an assistant if they had them in stock. She said she didn't know so she asked a guy. He said no they didn't have any & he hadn't heard of it. I walked down the next isle & there was a huge banner on the side of the fridge, with soya in, advertising the whole range & saying they were in the grocery isle. So I went back to the lady & showed her the banner & asked her where the isle was. She showed me. They had NONE of the exciting goodies you've all been talking about!!! SO I had to console myself with Choice chocolates & also the alpro soya hazelnut & almond milks.

They have everything in my Tesco! YAY! I didn't buy anything other than the plain yogurt because I have nothing to use the other stuff in yet but I did a little happy dance and yelled "the vegan stuff is here" to my mum lol.

I went to the tesco in the town where I work and there was none of it. I'm guessing Devon is going to be behind the times as usual! It wasn't a completely wasted trip though because I finally tracked down the lyle's butterscotch ice cream syrup!

We only have a Tesco Metro. It's a big Metro, but still lacking in anything veganish. I didn't look thoroughly because I was parking illegally and just ran round quickly. I went to Sainsbury's instead and bought some mace, which is what makes fake chicken stock cubes taste of fake chicken, I have recently discovered.

This mace thing is interesting. Have you tried it before? I buy those "chicken" ramen noodles at Sainsburys for 10p and use the flavour packet for a "chickeny" taste.

Sooooo I got the train down to the biggest tesco near me today.
Didn't have any of the dairy free range...
Although they did have the alpro almond milk, which i snapped up.
I must be honest I prefer the hazelnut milk, but thats not stopped me glugging half the carton today... oops.

I don't think Cornwall is quite with the times. I'll have to have a proper shop around when I go home to Portsmouth at the weekend.

Has anyone tried the plain yoghurt yet? Both the Alpro/Provamel ones are so disgustingly sweet and vanilla like and I can't get my preferred Sojade anymore.

What, Alpro has hazelnut milk now? I first stumbled across the almond one the week I left England. I guess I get toffee ice cream, oat whipping cream and 1.3l tubs of Swedish Glace instead.

My local HFS was definitely more expensive than Waitrose, let alone Tesco (and that was a tiny Express), unless it was stuff from the bulk bins. I did avoid Holland & Barrett in favour of the independent shop though, even though both were pedaling quackery to some extent.

I tried the white cheese last night. It did taste Sheesy but maybe not as much. Matthew liked it better than I did but I thought it was OK too. I had it on very spicy chilaquiles and it worked well. I can't quite imagine it on say pizza or other less spicy stuff though.
