yuck! - Sun 1st Jun 2008

Oh dear, I'm not a fan of smoked cheddar anyway, but this chalky, oversweet mess with a horrible texture may have put me off all cheese substitutes!

Vegan Cheese - Wed 14th Jan 2009

I've tried many vegan cheeses and have found that whilst all of them have their good points, none of them have managed to master an 'all-rounder' - that being, taste, texture, ability to melt, ease of grating and healthiness etc).

The Sheese brand seem to have concurred the 'gratability' and texture elements, but I feel they haven't quite got their with taste and 'meltabily'.

This variety specifically, I found to be very nice upon my first taste, but after a couple of seconds it changed into a rather unpleasant after-taste that seems to linger for several minutes. This, in turn, somewhat tainted the taste of other things I ate following.

I had bought this primarily because I had heard so many good things about this product, but I don't think it's anything to rave about and personally prefer the mozzarella style - this however could just be a question of taste as the same goes for the cheezly and tofutti products.

However, all in all, nothing can beat the mozzarella cheezly (tofutti is nice admittedly, but I unfortunately got put off that after becoming aware of the amount of hydrogenated oils that are used).

I have only tried three of the cheezly flavours - Nacho Style, White Cheddar Style & Mozzarella Style - Nacho was nice and worked well. It was however quite hot and spicy which I am not a lover of (Those who like their foods/cheeses with a bit of a kick though, I am sure would love this). The White Cheddar, I'm afraid to say, I found to taste powdery and vile - It lacked everything you'd expect a cheese to be - it had little flavour and more of less crumbled in your mouth. Somewhat conjured the idea of eating chalk. Whilst the mozzarella cheezly was the complete opposite. It tops them all - flavoursome, smooth, melts nicely (not fantastically, but well enough) and grate very well.

I endeavour to continue trying all vegan cheeses, but so far, mozzarella cheezly has been the best I have found and whilst you can find bad points, it is by far the closest I've found to an 'all-rounder' vegan cheese.

Lush!! - Tue 13th Mar 2012

This is a lovely little sheese to stick on a cheese board or to have as a snack with biscuits. It has quite a smoky flavour and is a very full bodied sheese. I love it :)

Delicious - Wed 12th Aug 2015

Great tasting alternative to cheese. The smoked sheese is second only to the Sheese with Chives. Doesn't melt too well, but that didnt affect the taste..

Check out their "melty" versions if that is what you are after.

This on crackers with a glass of red wine makes for a perfect relaxed evening

Surprisingly tasty - Fri 11th Mar 2016

I prefer this smoked version of Sheese to the cheddar type as it really does remind me of smoked bavarian cheese. Nice as a dairy alternative or simply to provide variety on the cheeseboard.

Tips

More appealing when smoked - Thu 26th Dec 2013

Smoking foods helps to give a taste of their own and doesn't matter (as much) when they fall short with underlining ingredients, but this is still an OK product. I love eating smoked protein for example with lots of gravy as the combined texture and salty liquid is fantastic together.
