You know the dairy-free industry is booming when stores come out with their own brand of dairy-free cheesecake! Loblaws has launched a whole line of plant-based convenience foods, including President’s Choice Vegan Cheesecake Style Dessert. And in 2020, they added a second flavor!
President’s Choice Vegan Cheesecake is Now in Two Plant-Based Flavors
Since they also released dairy-free cashew dips, I expected this plant-based cheesecake to be cashew-based. But it actually appears be nut-free, and free of most top allergens (aside from wheat)! Based on the ingredients, it looks like it is made with Wayfare cream cheese alternative. When you try this cheesecake, don’t forget to leave your rating and review below!

What Others Are Saying ...
As someone who grew up eating dairy products, I’m very picky when it comes to non-dairy versions. This cheesecake had great reviews, but I was still hesitant – would it taste like Poly filla? Would it have an overwhelming “off” flavour? I’m happy to say I found it delicious. It’s tasty, has the right consistency, and although it’s missing that tartness that makes awesome cheesecake awesome I won’t hold that against it. Even my son and hubby, who were eating regular cheesecake, said it was good. I’m so glad I can eat cheesecake again!
Best Vegan Cheesecake I've ever had!
So delicious, I even had to check the ingredients to make sure it was plant-based. So yummy!
I bought this online for my delivery without being able to see all the ingredients. I have to live a dairy free and gluten free lifestyle and I was so disappointed to see Wheat in the ingredients when I got it home. My kids said it was “ok”, but they would prefer a different kind. They like the chocolate better out of the two.

I’ve only had the original but honestly taste and texture is amazing! I find this alot lighter than regular cheesecake and alot better.
Great! from one who is allergic to eggs!
It is very hard to find dessert without eggs. Especially in general grocery stores!. First chocolate cheese cake ever! (and I am over 50) Thks President’s Choice!
BETTER THAN CHEESECAKE
Don’t just buy one. I had to go back immediately after having this. It’s by far the best chocolate cheesecake I’ve ever had!
I have tried many vegan desserts and cheesecakes and very few compare to this. I did a vegan whipped topping on top with strawberries and it was amazing, honestly would prefer over regular cheesecake
I don’t buy cheers very often, but this was the best I ever remember having. I topped the plain flavoured cheese cke with a half can if E.D Smith cherries. I ate a big price…So good!
It was so delicious and creamy. It tasted like the real deal.
Threw it away!
First off, you need to defrost it for 90 minutes, then you have a window of about 10 minutes to consume, otherwise the consistency goes from “I imagine this is what cheesecake feels like in my mouth” to instantly dissolving on your tongue like cotton candy. Flavour? Sugar. That’s it, a big mouth full of sugar. Was tolerable in the semi-frozen state, but my girlfriend tried her slice past that magic 10 minute window, and the look on her face was utter disgust and contempt. Thinking she was being dramatic, I tried her slice and agreed.
