We Can't Say It's Cheese

The husband and I tried out this new cheese spread by Wayfare Foods this past weekend and are of differing regarding its goodness. Conversation went something like this:

Me: It's alright.
Husband: Oh man, this tastes just like Velveeta.
Me: Yeah, maybe that's why I don't like it. I want a 'real' cheese flavor in my fake cheeses, like Dr. Cow.
Husband (crunching 'cheese'-slathered crackers between his teeth): What? Yeah, it's really good. Are you gonna eat any more?
Me: Nah, I'm good. You enjoy your vegan Velveeta.
Husband: Mmmmmm....

So there you have it. If you like the bright yellow stuff, this cheddar-y spread is for you. I still might try it on a warm tortilla with some salsa, as I think it might lend itself nicely to such a situation. I also may have to try the hickory-smoked variety that's out there too. In any case, I suggest you try it and decide for yourself. I got mine at Rainbow. Oh, and did I mention this stuff is made out of oatmeal? Yeah, for real. You'd never know it though. Just pointing out that it's good for you soy and wheat-free folks as well.

Up next: We're taking a road trip to Murphys this weekend to try out some local wine, and some supposedly divine vegan food. Stay tuned!

Sky - Give the hickory smoked cheddar a much better than the cheddar.

Will do - though the cheddar makes a great quesadilla - pan-fried between two corn tortillas with some salsa! :)
