Daiya Dairy-Free Cheese Slices Square Up with New Formula

0

Yes, for the umpteenth time, Daiya has reformulated one of their cheesy products! Honestly, we’ve had trouble keeping up with all of their ingredient changes over the years, but do admire their continuous improvement efforts. Their scientific chefs are never quite content. Which is why Daiya Dairy-Free Cheese Slices now have a new look, new shape, and, according to Daiya, improved taste.

Daiya Dairy-Free Cheese Slices Square Up with New Formula

I actually kind of liked the round slices, which fit perfectly on bagels, English muffins and small tortillas (mini quesadillas!). But Daiya has gone with tradition, and added four corners for traditional sandwich fans. They’ve also tweaked their recipe to create a reportedly smoother, and creamier texture.

But you be the judge! Leave your own unbiased rating and review below once you buy and try the latest reincarnation of Daiya Dairy-Free Cheese Slices.

Best non-dairy cheese ever

Rated 5 out of 5
March 26, 2021

We live in a non-dairy household due to our daughter having a life threatening dairy allergy.(so severe that breathing Dorito dust can cause her to go into anaphylactic shock). She is 21 now but always want our home to be safe for her. 21 years ago, there were hardly any dairy free foods that were edible – then came Daiya! And they keep getting better and better, the American cheese slices are the best yet. We have to drive about 50 miles to get the products but well worth it, thank you Daiya!

New cheddar is Daiya's New Coke (that's not a good thing)

I have been enjoying Daiya’s cheezes for several years. While the melting behavior did leave something to be desired, they had the flavors nailed – and should have put that hammer down. Cheddar, provolone, and mozzarella WERE all good. Have not had new mozz. Round or square irrelevant to me.
The change to provolone flavor is moderate, edible but slightly worse. But the cheddar drops from 5 stars to 2. Somewhat bitter, and off the mark. Bring back Classic Cheddar!

Daiya used to be the one good tasting dairy free cheese i could eat. The new flavor tastes wrong and I’m super disappointed and can’t eat it any more.

I have so far tasted the cheddar and mozzarella. So so good. Can’t tell if it’s plant based. Been having them daily. It’s Christmas 😁 right.
