Go Veggie still makes lactose-free cheese singles, but Go Veggie Vegan Cheese Singles were discontinued. The lactose-free singles are not dairy-free. For other options, see our Dairy-Free Cheese Reviews.
Available in four flavors – Cheddar, American, Pepperjack, Mozzarella – Go Veggie Vegan Cheese Singles are indeed a convenient dairy-free alternative. They’re perfectly portioned and individually wrapped, like the processed cheese slices our country has come to love.
But please note that only the “Vegan” Go Veggie Singles are dairy-free. They also offer lactose-free and lactose & soy-free versions that are not dairy-free.
Since our initial review, Go Veggie Vegan Cheese Singles have been completely reformulated. They used to be heavily rice-based, but are now a potato-, rice- and pea protein-based blend. For that reason, we’ve changed this to an informational post only – until we are able to give the new singles a full testing. But please feel free to comment with your own review if you have tried them!

Such a strange taste.
Pastey texture. As a vegan I almost bought their lactose-free (but ANIMAL product containing) cheese that they put right next to the vegan cheese. Wasn’t impressed by the plant-based cheese flavor at all.
Sad about Go Veggie Slices.
Hey! guys. I ate this cheese for years. There is no other sliced cheese that is good. It melted so good, like real cheese. P.I.
Go Veggie Vegan slices are AMAZING! SADDENED to see them discontinued!!
I Love the Go Veggie cheese slices and shreds I have contacted my local grocery stores demanding an explanation as to why they were no longer available. I stumbled across this post looking for information. I am saddened to see they are no longer available I haven’t had sliced vegan cheese in MONTHS as I refuse to try another brand.
Vegan soy chedar slices discontinued
5 star for the cheese! 0 for discontinuing!
I am very sorry for that! It was tasty, convinient,had protein in it.
Now I can find only Daya. Not everybody
has soy allergy.
Most vegan products has wheat gluten. That is an allergen to many people!
Sorry to hear.
I have been looking that cheese.
How many grams of totol fat are in Go veggie chedder cheese?
They have nutrition facts on their site -> http://www.goveggiefoods.com/products/singles/vegan/cheddar
Taste-wise these slices are acceptable, (American cheese not being the highest quality cheese to begin with), but when they are unwrapped, the slices are fragile and break into small pieces very easily. The fact that the are also not quick to melt can make a simple grilled cheese sandwich extremely frustrating to make.
Wow, didn’t get that at all with my purchase. They look appealing and taste great. Sorry you had that experience. It’s hard trying to replace the real thing.
We are just starting our dairy free journey, but these Go Veggie Vegan slices do not taste anything like cheese. They honestly are the least appealing cheese alternative we’ve tried thus far. 🙁 Hoping we can find a different slice that can be used on burgers or grilled cheese.
Hi Mary, thanks for sharing your take on these slices! To clarify, the odds of finding dairy-free cheese slices that taste just like dairy cheese isn’t probable. I usually recommend taking a cheese break altogether, and then introducing these types of cheese alternatives once the cravings have subsided. This way your taste buds aren’t comparing! That said, I think Chao and Follow Your Heart (NOT the ones labeled as Vegan Gourmet though – the ones without soy) are the best out there right now in terms of slices. Daiya is reformulating their slices and the new ones are pretty good (I had a sneak preview tasting), but they will take a couple of months to roll out with the new formulas.
I guess since we all have different tastes, we will all feel differently about the tast of these cheeses. Well I am a cheese lover, and being lactose intolerant, would always get sick (bloating, cramping, gassy, etc.) after eating any kind of dairy (except butter).
I read several reviews that talked about how terrible veggie and vegan cheeses are, so I was reluctant to buy, and would rather be sick than to not enjoy my cheese. (I know…) Anyway, I went ahead and purchased the Go Veggie American Cheese slices and boy was I ever shocked! This cheese tastes so much like the real thing. I wasn’t expecting this at all. Finally, I can enjoy my cheese without the side effects Lol! Thanks to Go Veggie!
Concerned Father: My son use to enjoy this cheese. It was the only kind he could have with out making him sick. He started when he was 5 years old up to 10, he is now 14 years old and he and I wish that we could find it again in our Area. Norfolk.va or somewhere close by thanks.
Hi Alton, this brand is now called “Go Veggie” and they have a purple label on their dairy / vegan line (do not go for the blue or green). It’s pretty well distributed. I would check the Go Veggie website for a store locator or ask your local grocer to order it in.
I want to buy some rice cheese but don’t know where to find it. I’ve searched many places. Now I broke my leg and can’t go anywhere. HELP me find these cheese slices!!!!!!!!!
/where can you buy this stuff at. I have looked in all of our stores in Dover and Milford Delaware and I can’t find it anywhere
Hi Charmaine, we’re in the process of updating our cheese alternative reviews. Galaxy foods slices are still around, but have been rebranded under the name “Go Veggie”. The packaging looks more like this now – http://www.godairyfree.org/product-reviews/go-veggie-cream-cheese-alternative – and there are links on that page to their website for a store locator. This review should be updated soon!
I LOVE these rice cheese slices but my Giant Eagle doesn’t carry them. They did order them for me once, but said they can’t find them now.
I have to agree with this review! I wasn’t expecting much at all from these, and I still prefer the Daiya slices, but Galaxy Foods is much more readily available where I am, and the slices are growing on me big time. The cheddar especially I actually like better than Kraft singles. They kind of taste like a mellower Velveeta. That probably sounds gross, but it’s a comfort food taste for me.
Thanks for sharing your take on the slices Jenaca!
Jenaca, where do you live? I’m trying to find a place to buy these rice cheese slices. I love them!!!!!
Wow! I had a completely different experience. I bought the Daiya cheddar cheese and I thought it was just awful. It stunk so bad, I wondered if it was old or something. And it didn’t taste like cheese at all in my opinion. However, I had a much better experience with the Go Veggie cheese. What do you think makes the difference?
I HIGHLY recommend the Galaxy Rice Shreds. I eat the cheddar and mozzarella all the time. I became lactose intolerant 3 years ago and this is the best tasting dairy free cheese I have tried. I make pizza, grilled cheese and lasagna with this all the time. It melts really well inside of food but not as good as a topping. I buy four of each kind and keep them in the freezer. They thaw wonderfully.
