There are so many great new cheeses coming out all the time -- this is why VegNews has a cheese issue every once in a while. I went vegan when the only faux cheese was Tofutti, so I stopped craving cheese and don't really find the need to put faux cheese into my diet. I do like nut cheeses because those aren't really pretending to be something they're not. Dr. Dow, Punk Raw Labs, and Nutty Cow are all cool. Cheers!

I wholeheartedly agree Molly's Dad! Lately I've been most down with the newer nut-based fermented cheeses you've mentioned. I don't want some goopy starch sludge oozing over my food, but maybe that's just me;) The nut cheeses are coming into their own which is refreshing. Thanks for your input!

Please. After nearly 2 decades of trying dairy alternatives I found Daiya to be brilliant. Both texture and taste were superior. I imagine those commenting are spoiled hipsters who expect vegan cheese to go head to head with the best melted fresh mozzarella? Back in the day the best we had were various nutritional yeast amalgamations.

Patience....

And hopefully gratitude are in order.

Daiya Motz? REALLY????!? It was by far the most detestable, inedible 'food' product I've ever put into my mouth. It smelled, tasted, and felt HORRIBLE. Much like eating baby vomit strung together by Elmer's glue. No thank you.

I thought the Daiya was grossgusting! The taste, I really tried to like, tasted so artificial, it was too strong, did have a plastic flavor to it. Maybe the mozzarella is better, but the cheddar tasted like vomit.

Hello, thanks for your review, I'll be checking out those with the highest score.

I'm not sure if you know this but, how long can vegan cheese stay out of the fridge before it turns bad?

More specifically, how long does it last if I keep it on a thermal bag that keep things cold for a period of 3 hours?

Thanks!

I don't mind the Daiya but my fiancé wanted to gag at the creamy goo that it was. He refused to eat the pizza he got because of it and it's a long drive and expensive to get vegan cheese here so I will be trying to make my own. I've made mayo, Caesar dressing and caramel that my fiancé loves so maybe I can get lucky when I make my own. :)

We like Daiya but I am wondering if you have found any "cheese" slices that are tasty enough too? My kids who have dairy allergies would love it!

Daiya tastes like plastic.

Vegan Gourmet (mozzarella at least) tastes more like actual cheese, and doesn't have that disgusting plastic-goo flavor/texture. How anyone could prefer Daiya to Vegan Gourmet is utterly beyond me. Just... seriously. How?

Beretta, a nice restaurant in San Francisco that has fancy cocktails, uses Vegan Gourmet, and they are all the better for it.

I have tried Daiya cheese and both the mozza and the cheddar taste like butter. About the only thing it works good for is a salad. I had the mozza on something the other day and melted it and it was AWFUL! The texture of it was so weird it was like melted plastic. I had to throw out the food it was so gross and weird. I guess if you want your cheese to taste like butter it is good (I don't know why you would), but don't melt it!

I have tried the Vegan Gourmet Cheddar and found it to be mediocre. However, I am always grateful for any vegan alternatives that are tolerable, because they really help in a pinch and make food more fun. I was ecstatic when I saw your review, because the cheese that I tried rated the lowest. That means that there are better cheeses to try. Yay! I'm going to give Daiya and Cheezly a try. Thanks again!

I can't say that I've tried all the cheeses in this article, but after trying and loving Daiya, I really don't have a need to try anything else. Plus, it has the best ingredients of the bunch.

I couldn't agree more with this article. I love Daiya cheese too and I wrote a review about it a while ago. www.sageist.com/2010/07/daiya-vegan-cheese-product-review.html

You appear to have forgotten to compare any of these things to real cheese.
