Freaking Delicious... So Expensive
I’m obsessed with this spread!!! I honestly like it better than the original and it’s way less calories. It’s like $8.99 where I am though (Missouri, USA) and I wish it wasn’t so darn expensive!
Tastes great, could be a bit creamier
Taste is amazing!
This spread is such a hit. It tastes like the original.
I have a lot of dietary issues and I feel like this tastes like I’m not missing out. It’s delicious!
Texture and taste are great!
Best vegan cheese yet!
I loved Boursin and became a vegan after being a vegetarian most of my life. Cheese was hard to give up, but I did it. They nailed this cheese! i think I actually prefer it to the original. So delicious, I’m hoping they come up with vegan versions of my faves Laughing Cow and Babybel.
I was delighted to see this in the grocery store and had to try it as Boursin was a big favourite of mine. The texture is slightly crumbly and the Boursin taste is almost identical. I wouldn’t be able to tell it was plant based if I wasn’t told.
I was lucky enough to get an early taste before this was released to the public, and I must say, it was AMAZING. Even better than memory serves of the original version. Rich, creamy, smooth and easy to spread, it’s boldly flavorful with plenty of garlic and savory herbs, but not so much to cause dragon breath. Forget crackers, I’m eating this stuff on a spoon!
