Wayfare Foods Dazzles with New Dairy-Free Cheesy Dips and Spreads

We Can't Say It's Cheese Cheddar-Style Spread from Wayfare - Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, & VeganI can't call the new Cheddar-Style Spreads and Dips from Wayfare Foods cheese, but I can call them delicious. The funny name "We Can't Say It's Cheese" really doesn't do justice to how wonderful this product is. To start, Wayfare uses only simple, whole food ingredients. Their products are relatively low in fat, made with a base of oats (seriously, you would never know), and they are dairy-free, soy-free, wheat-free (the company is working on sourcing certified gluten-free oats), and vegan! They do not make a nut-free claim, because they do use coconut oil, but this ingredient may not be a problem for most nut-free consumers.

While the dips could be likened to sour cream in texture, the spreads rivaled cream cheese in their smooth and thick consistency. Of course, the flavor was quite different … not quite achieving cheese, but heavily cheddar inspired to help address the cheese void in the dairy-free diet. I seriously liked the Cheddar-Style Dips (available in Original and Mexi) from this company, and I LOVED the Spreads (available  in Original and Hickory-Smoked). You can read my full reviews for the Cheddar-Style Dips and for the Cheddar-Style Spreads. Or, if you are a visual person, simply enjoy the pictures of the many meals and recipes that I made with these products …

I devoured all of the "We Can't Say It's Cheese" Cheddar Dips (both the Original and Mexi) via, well … dipping (and in a recipe trial – see the pictures after this one) …
