Yesterday, I had a chance to sample Sheese, a vegan cheese imported from Scotland (there known as Scheese). For all vegans that have been waiting for a cheese product that you can actually eat plain… it’s here.
Now, I haven’t tried Cheezly yet (any UK folks that would be willing to ship me some and get reimbursed?), but Sheese is far and away the best soy cheese I’ve had yet. My wife tried it, too. Now, she’s content with the standard Veganrella/Vegan Gourmet/Uncheese Cookbook options but is also fiending for a vegan cheese that is truly like the real thing. When I handed her a piece of Sheese and she bit into it, her eyes opened wide and she said, “Wow. There’s no difference in taste or texture between this and real cheese.” Clearly, this stuff is amazing.
My local health food store is likely going to start carrying it soon. They couldn’t say how much it would cost just yet, though I know Food Fight had it for $9.75. That’s pretty damn expensive, but hopefully this new import deal Sheese has with Black Duck Imports will make it more affordable.
Available flavors: Blue, Cheddar & Chives (the one I tried), Cheshire, Edam, Gouda, Hickory Smoked Cheddar, Medium Cheddar, Mozzarella, and Strong Cheddar.
(Thanks to Steve at Healthy By Nature for letting me sample this good stuff.)
