Last time I had this (in the long and distant past) it had the taste, smell and texture of old tramps feet. I have since been reassured this is no longer the case so am willing to try it again.

Can anyone recommend the best flavour to try? Am I right in thinking this is better used as hard cheese rather than trying to melt it (cheezly all the way for that).

Sheese used to be horrible, I agree. They definitely changed the recipe at some point.

The flavours we repeatedly buy and almost always have on hand are smoked, strong cheddar, blue, and sometimes cheshire (good for salads).

I use Sheese both as a hard cheese (good in sandwiches) and melted. It doesn't melt the same as other brands, but if you grate it finely and put it in things then it will (eg sauces, lasagna, mixed with cheezly in a grilled cheese).

It changed around 2008.

I mostly buy the strong and smoked cheddar. Mozzerella is a bit weird and I really dislike the blue.

I don't like the funny taste sheese has.

I've just discovered though that I like the cheezly white cheddar, the texture is less like playdough than other varieties. It even makes a good cheese and pickle sandwich!! not to hijack but I saw in veg cooking mag that cheezly have now got blue and pepperjack varieties out, but I haven't seen them yet in the health food shop.

yeah, i saw these on redwood's online shop but not found them in an actual shop yet. i'm quite excited to try the blue cheese variety but i have absolutely no point of reference for it, having never eaten actual blue cheese before.

anyway yeah, i used to really dislike scheese but then at a manchester vegan fair maybe 3 years ago they had a stall with all of the reformulated products on it and i was impressed with all the ones i tried.

I want to try the blue one soooo much. I've been hunting but so far to no avail.

I tried the blue one at the animal aid fayre. I personally still prefer the sheese one (I think cheezly's version tastes like Sheese's old recipe did), but I liked the pepperjack!

I might try the blue scheese again if it's been reformulated. definitely not tried it since 2008 as the first time was the only time (blech!).

I had the pepperjack cheese bites in one of those christmas special things and they were mega tasty! Quickly scoffed by me and the xherbedx one. The only problem was we never found any more!

I like the one with chives/herbs (? can't remember - it has green bits in) v thinly sliced on crackers. For melting I like the taste of super melting cheezly and the texture of Tofutti Creamy Smooth Mozzarella Style so I mix them yum yum.

The plain one might just be the only food product I have ever thrown away. It has no redeeming features at all.

On a cheese note, I bought some bacon cheezly because the Americans seem to love it. What to do with it?

The spreadable pure stuff is such a disappointment. Their slices are great though.

I'll admit the spreadable Pure's one redeeming factor is its ability to work in sweet foods (I've used sheese similarly too, but it's a bit too salty).

I have medium cheddar sheese on my sandwich today as I bought it ages ago and my cheezly had gone off. I tried a little bit and the texture is ok but it stil has that funny chemically sheese taste that I don't like. I've put a butt load of pickle on it so hopefully that'll hide it a bit.

I can't remember what all I did with mine (the one time I was able to get half a block bartered with interrobang?! for marshmallows), but I would suggest using it in something that isn't super flavourful already so you can actually taste the smokiness. Maybe shredded over steamed broccoli? Mmm...now I want some bacon Cheezly.

I can confirm that in a sandwich, with a craptonne of branston, it was passable.

If it changed in 2008 for the better then I hate to think what it was like before. Tried it last year and there was a definite stale foot quality to it.

Can't believe I've been vegan nearly a year and still haven't tried any of these cheese alternatives! Useful thread, thank you. I think I'm going to try one of the melting varieties...

I'm having nachos tonight with a mix of super melting cheezly mozzarella style and Tofutti mozzarella style. Yum. They're in the oven now...getting impatient...

ooh, is that the block of tofutti mozarella you're using? we saw that in the health food shop near cidersmurfette's house yesterday morning and wondered what it's like- you'll have to report on it please! i've had the tofutti mozz slices before and was quite disappointed- they're really watery and melted away to almost nothing when i had them on burgers.
