I ordered the creamy original for the first time and holy smokes it tastes like cheese! I love it so much. Tastes between mozzarella and meunster or havarti to me. I've been making all of my non-vegan friends try it and they all agree how great it tastes. Thank goodness for vegan essentials because I can't find this flavor in the store.
From PatrickM of Oakland, California on 11/5/2016.
When this (Creamy Original) arrived I put it in the refrigerator. And there it sat. For weeks. I eyed it suspiciously every time I opened the refrigerator because I just knew that after taking a bite, that horrible "OMG WHAT IS THAT HORRIBLE AFTERTASTE" would take over and make me weep inside. But, finally, I decided to give it a try and made a grilled cheese sandwich (the real kind, in a pan, with Earth Balance). WOW! It tastes JUST LIKE CHEESE! Others have said provolone, which I agree with when not melted, but melted it reminds me of Havarti. Anyway, my refrigerator is never without this product now. In sandwiches, melted on Gardein burgers, creamed spinach (use cashew milk), finely chopped and tossed over pasta...anything you used to use cheese in is possible again. Amazing. I personally promise you will not be disappointed!
It tastes JUST like cheese!!!
From Kristina Cegbe of Houston, Texas on 10/31/2016.
Okay you guys, I have only been vegan for 2 1/2 months so I remember how cheese tastes...I bought the Original and took it to my moms house.I took the first bite and I was thrilled!!! My mom and stepdad are carnivores and they agreed, it tastes like cheese!!!I would say it's along the lines of provolone.
HAPPY AGAIN :)
From Anonymous of Albany, New York on 9/21/2016.
YES! .. just, yes!
I agree ith all the 5 star reviews
From Anonymous of Los Angeles, California on 7/22/2016.
I bought this on the spur of the moment, and had never seen it before. I was trying to find something else for picky vegan kids to eat.They didn't like those Go VEGGIE! slices, that are NOT vegan, unless you buy the purple pack.We tried Daiya, and found it yucky.So we just haven't bothered trying to find anything else.But since I happened to see it, I bought some.I was pleased with the texture, upon opening it. The slices peeled apart, without comming apart. I tore a tiny corner piece off, and was amazed! It tasted like Provalone, my favorite type of cheese, when I was still ignorant. I was raised up on the standard American diet, of meat or Animal product EVERY meal 3x a day forever, including public schools giving ONLY milk to drink all through school, and it being touted in health class, and everywhere.I slowly got enlightened and became a vegan, though I missed my provalone sandwiches.I haven't had one in 20 years.After tasting this, and tearing the 1st piece up to share with everyone, everyone loved it!I promptly set about making my beloved "provalone" sandwich, and felt so decadent doing so.We'll be putting this on out meal plan, for every month from now on.There's only one surprise, it has absolutely no protein, but that is not a deal breaker at all. In fact, I'll just use it like any other low nutritional seasoning, to improve the flavor of many dishes I have abandoned when I went vegan. Now, with this Cheeze, I can put it in salads, sandwiches, pizza, so much is possible again!This is the ONLY vegan cheese I'll buy.It is a long awaited treat.Thanks Field Roast, and I think Rhondi is right, I think this IS a repackaged Violife product. It's made in Greece, and has the same vegan symbol on the pkg. Greece appears to be anti GMOs. Good for them! Greece firmly against GMOs, minister told Greenpeace - Σχολίασέ τοwww.thetoc.gr/.../greece-firmly-against-gmos-minister-tells-greenpeaceI AM worried about there being GMOs in the product, even though the pkg says "NO GMO" because there's no actual certification of that. Too bad Field Roast can't get Non GMO Project Verified, to ease everyone's minds.
