I don’t talk much about products I do not like, simply because I learned long ago that many people do not really read, and I don’t want any skimmers to see a brand name mentioned and think I like it. (This is also a stipulation when companies offer me product to review – if I am at all interested I tell them I reserve the right to not review the product at all).
That said, I have explained here many times that I am a product junkie and I love to share things I love.
Daiya is a hugely popular cheese in the world of plant based and dairy free eaters. I have never been a big fan of the original shreds (although I do like the pepperjack flavor shreds!), so when they came out with the wedge cheeses, I was intrigued.
One of my new friends from class brought in two of the new flavors for us to try – the cheddar and the jack. I really liked the cheddar, and the jack was okay. This piqued my curiosity enough to buy them, and I brought home a cheddar and a havarti the next day.
The first thing I could not wait to do is test their melt-ability. Totally a word.
Also totally successful at the melting.
Look at that melty goodness on the Italian parm hot dog!
The new Daiya cheese blocks or “wedges” not only melt wonderfully, they taste pretty darn good. My favorite is the havarti, and I really like the cheddar also. The cheddar makes a good addition to my crunchy iceberg and hummus sandwich.
This is not a sponsored / paid post, nor did Daiya provide samples. I simply love the new Daiya wedges and wanted to share!
I know asking this question is like opening that proverbial can of worms, but are you a fan of vegan/dairy free cheese? Do you have a favorite?
