Teese Vegan Cheese Alternative Cheddar -- 10 oz
Almost but no dice
The texture and color are identical to Velveeta. I tried to doctor it to negate that terrible sweet under taste but was unsuccessful. I made Mac and Teese and am now feeding the results to my dogs. They gave me a skeptical glance but will eat whatever they view as "people food".

NO...DON'T DO IT!!! Taste is very gross!!
In my vegan quest to find dairy substitutes I have tried them all....and this brand is just GROSS!! I purchased the Mozzarella and the Cheddar varieties and they taste nothing like cheese. They have this wierd butter taste....and thinking butter, that's not bad....but it is....so very funky tasting and gross. You have to buy 2 of these at a time and the remainder of the cheddar and the other little "cheese" logs are still in my fridge....I'm just gonna toss them out and call it a loss, they are THAT gross! I was born/raised on meat and dairy and now being vegetarian for the last 5 years and now going vegan I know how dairy is "supposed" to taste and this is nothing like it. Buy at your own risk, I definitely DO NOT recommend this product at all!!

Our fam loves this stuff! This makes wonderful nachos etc. The taste is very reminiscent of the old time cheese we used to eat on nachos. We have found it to be delicious!

This product is way healthier than cheese. It melts at a low temperate. This product is water soluble, unlike cheese. This Teese actually tastes like nacho cheese when melted!

It may 'melt', but it has NO flavor...blah
So I'm "trying" to go vegan and basically cheese has been holding me back from doing so...I LOVE cheese, not milk (gave that up when I stopped eating meat), but I luv luv luv me some cheese, and ice cream. So I have been in search of some 'replacements' if you will. I read the reviews on many, many, many different sites and heard good things from this item. HOWEVER, no, it does not taste good, it doesn't really taste like anything! I tried making this as a substitute for my velveeta (that kind in the long rectangle box) and the first time, I thought I didn't use enough, the second time, I used the whole thing....still, no flavor...and what I did taste was not good. I had my husband try it (he's still a meat-eater *sigh*) and of course he thought it was disgusting....I'm still trying to keep an open mind. So alas, I do not recommend this product at all - yuck! I've tried Daiya cheese shreds and one other brand I can't think of the name of too, don't care for them either...not sure what I'm going to do, cuz honestly, these substitutes are gross.
