We have not yet trialed Soledad Vegan Cheeze, but did receive a review from a reader who has! That said, I cannot yet give it a personal rating or weigh in on the taste, texture, etc, but enjoy the unbiased reader review and if you have tried Soledad Vegan Cheeze, please do leave a comment with your own review!
Clockwise from top left (all dairy-free and vegan): American, Parmesan, Cheddar, Ricotta, Chevre.
Unbiased review emailed to me by Go Dairy Free viewer Webby:
I looked on your site for a review of some vegan cheese and saw no mention of THE MOST DELICIOUS CHEEZE EVER! (that’s cheeze with a Z because it’s non-dairy). In my vegan search for cheese-like products, the one thing that I miss from my former diet, I found THE BEST, Soledad Vegan Cheeze. Check out this couple’s story here, and get some of their vegan cheeze from here – all are not pictured, but appear on the order form. They ship 4 or 8 little 3.5-ounce containers at a time, and shipping is rough ($20) because it’s cold-packed. BUT SO WORTH IT! I’m telling you I cried like a baby tasting them all. My favorites are … just looked at the list to get the names and can’t remember … i’m just going to have to reorder them all. Since they are not only experienced cheese makers, but a sanctuary for animals, any purchase of their cheese goes to help feed and care for the animals.
Not affiliated … I’m their newest fan though. One taste and you’ll be doing “The Meg Ryan” in when Harry Met Sally’s dining scene. Excuse me if that’s too retro a reference LOL.
Well, it wasn’t too retro of a reference for me Webby, but I guess that shows my age!
To note, don’t be thrown by the Soledad Vegan Cheeze website. It’s made by the people at The Sanctuary at Soledad Goats and has a big picture of a goat across the top along with a goat logo. I thought it was goat cheese! It isn’t, but rather is vegan / dairy-free cheese with proceeds benefiting their sanctuary.
As Webby states, there are more flavors for the Cheddar, Chevre and American cheezes pictured. Also, the Cheddar and Chevre cheeses are cashew-based, the American is oat-based, the Ricotta is macadamia-based, and the Parmesan is pine nut-based.
Price: $6.00 per 3.5-ounce container
Certifications: I do not believe Soledad Vegan Cheeze has any certifications.
