I'd heard rumours this might happen but now it actually has :)

Such good news! I'm sure the selection they have will vary store to store but this is what I found in one near me :

Original slices
Original block
Original creamy/spreadable

I'd never had the spreadable one before, it's really similar to Philadelphia! And the block is also new to me, can't wait to grate this over everything!

No way!!!! Brilliant to see it getting in to somewhere so mainstream.

Ooh exciting. I will have to keep an eye out for it. I haven't tried the spready one yet.

Mine has had it for a while now! I have only tried the block, and it melts spookily well.

I was super excited to find it in tesco as I kept seeing people on FB finding it and mine didn't have it for ages.

I love violife. I just hack lumps off the block and scoff it! Best vegan cheese I've tasted so far.

Just found the spreadable one in my store, huzzah! I had some on toast and it's absolutely wonderful. Much, much better than Sheese or Tofutti.

I bought some of the pre-sliced stuff. It tastes like sweaty germanic cheese, so I guess it's authentic! The melty pizza cheese it still the best, though.

I really want to try that pizza one! Can't find it anywhere round here though.

Gah, the blocks are amazing. I've just been eating chunks of it on crackers, this is going to be an expensive habit for me.

It's much cheaper in my local health food shop. It's about two fifty in Tesco, versus one eighty in my health food shop...

You live in Swansea, don't you? Next time I visit my cousin who lives there I could do a supply drop of cheap Violife and gluten powder (because what vegan doesn't need cheap gluten powder?).

If you're in Glasgow, you can find other flavours such as the pizza one in Quality Vitamins on Douglas Street. It's a great little shop.
