It is indeed, and i know what you mean about the slices melting away to nothing. The block is a bit the same, but is excellent for sticking your nachos together. The flavour is nice too. I use some cheezly as well for a bit of texture, but the important thing about nachos, imo, is that you stick your jalapenos to your tortilla chips. :)

It's soooo good in toasties! It's also nice thinly sliced on crackers with tomatoes and mayonnaise.

ETA: I've used it with success on pizza and grated over macaroni cheese.

Has anyone tried the Tofutti cheddar singles? Do they melt? They have them at Holland & Barrett and for cheaper than Cheezly/Sheese but it doesn't say anything about melty-ness on the package so I'm hesitant to buy them. I love to make vegan grilled cheezes and the Cheezly melting cheez is OKAY for grilled cheeze but not great. I know Tofutti cream cheese is AWESOME but I've never tried the singles before!

I think the toffuti slices are good to chuck on a burger but I wouldn't make a grilled cheese with them. Can you get the super melting cheddar Cheezly slices in your H&B? I think they're the best for cheese on toast although I usually just use one of the nooch sauces from The Uncheese Cookbook or this Vegusto stuff I picked up in France.

I just had those Redwood/Cheezly pepper jack bites. Real Foods needs to start stocking the pepper jack Cheezly right now. But they don't even have the bacon one, so I don't see it hitting the shelves any time soon.

I only got them because they were the last packet left. They were marked down (half price!). I think they'd been in the shop every time I'd been for the past month, so they were probably about to go off. I wish I'd bought them when they were on special in December!

pretty sure they were a seasonal special product. they never appeared on redwoods' site and since we got the pack from my local H&B a couple of weeks before christmas they've never had any more in.
wish they'd hurry up and get the blocks of pepperjack into shops though!

Seriously. That's some good-ass pepper jack. Is pepper jack a thing here? I've never actually bought cheese (actual dairy cheese) in the UK since I've been vegan the whole time I've lived here, but I don't think I've ever seen Monterrey jack or pepper jack.

nope!
the redwood bites was the first time i've ever seen anything labelled as "pepperjack", let alone eaten it!
i think the idea is that we have such high quality (allegedly!) cheeses over here that we didn't need to import american varieties. other than the occasional macmurder or murder king limited thing, probably.

They sell monterrey jack in tesco.

I haven't seen the redwoods pepper jack anywhere here. But then in Bradford being vegetarian (let alone vegan) is like being born with 2 heads (the guy in Mystic Pizza last night couldn't believe I didn't want cheese on my pizza - he kept asking if I was sure) so the Holland and Barrett here is a bit rubbish for interesting vegan food products.

True, but Gordon forking Ramsay has made it impossible to get a table. I live like 2 mins away in a car as well - about 15 mins walk. Grr...

Yeah, we booked the table the day before it was first on, so we hit lucky. Not so much luck finding a pub to go to for a pre meal drink in the local area!!!!!

Well indeed. It's a predominantly Muslim area round here (couldn't tell if you were being sarcastic or didn't know!) so not much in the way of pubs (but plenty o' curry houses which easily makes up for lack of beer :)) The city centre has a couple of good pubs inc a sam smiths pub (shoulder of mutton) which has vegan society approved beer (like all samuel smiths pubs). Just don't look at the big... ahem...hole...

The tofutti block is good to cook with, but it does go quite watery and thin. Mixed with other cheeses it's good though! I really like it.

Weighing up all pros and cons of the vegan cheezes I've had, the Tofutti block is deffo my fave.

I have had a block of the tofutti mozzarella in my fridge for a long time but I have had such a bad experience with vegan cheese that I am scared to use it. Convince me, please!

I think the best advice for vegan cheese, if you're weary, is to cook with it rather than eat it plain! Try a lasagne or something.

Ditto. vegan cheeze often mings when it's raw. I've got really into it cooked though. The tofutti melts really well into a cheeze sauce. Mac & cheeze! (Just don't do what I did last time and use sweetened rice milk :| - not good. make sure your non-dairy milk is unsweetened!!)

I just my first pack of vegan cheese! I got Sheese mature cheddar (I think), and will go on the advice from you guys that it's not great to melt and try it in a sandwich. I'm very excited about this. I've only been vegan 6 months, and I've wanted to try this since I first went vegan!

Cheezly white cheddar is my new favourite vegan cheese. it is the only one that I can eat on crackers or in salads etc, because the texture is more like real cheese than the other varieties. And it doesn't have that chemical taste that sheese has.
