So Delicious Dairy-Free Shreds are a Plant-Based Way to Say Cheese

0

Updated in 2021! Like many other dairy-free cheese alternatives, the So Delicious Dairy-Free Shreds formula has changed a bit in its short life. They cut out the pea protein and made a few other minor tweaks. They’ve also changed up the packaging! So I’ve updated this post with all of the latest information on ingredients, availability, and more, and have added the latest product images.

So Delicious Dairy-Free Shreds Reviews and Info - plant-based cheese alternative reformulated and repackaged in 2021 - in 3 vegan flavors!

So Delicious Dairy-Free Shreds are Making Many People Say Cheese

We initially tried this cheese alternative not long after it was first released. We had a smattering atop a big plate of nachos, and it wasn’t perfect, but it was pleasurable. I haven’t tried it since the minor reformulation, but I know many of you have. Be sure to leave your rating and review below once you’ve bought and tried it!

Might return for the Mozza

We tried the Cheddar Jack on nachos and it wasn’t bad at all, but didn’t melt well and didn’t add as much flavor as hoped. We tried the Mozzarella on pizza (on the sauce, under loads of toppings) and it melted surprisingly well (not sure it would have if sprinkled on top though). The flavor was pretty good (enjoyed by two cheese eaters), but a little mild. We used quite a bit, and could definitely taste it, but if you use a light sprinkle, the flavor might get lost.

Cheddar doesn't melt but mozzarella does.

Was so happy to finally find a cheese sub that didn’t have pea protein in it. The flavor is great.
Now Target in Lubbock, Texas is no longer selling and it was the only store I could find that did. So I have no where to buy it! In AZ you can buy it at Walmart. Wish more store would sell it.

If this is “one of the best vegan cheeses” out there, I’m in trouble.
Texture is good, but had absolutely no flavor.

I bought both mozzarella and Cheddar jack, and I thought Daiya was bad but this is worse.. The cheese has a weird aftertaste like most (besides Chao) and it’s sweet and smells/tastes weird. I’d say the flavor is too strong for cheese, and it should be milkier. Not this sour/sweet taste. I regret buying, idk what to do with them. But So Delicious does have the best ice cream and yogurt!

I love this cheese. I am not a vegan cheese eater because I usually think they taste gross, but I love this one. It tastes like cheese does. I highly recommend the cheddar.

Best as a mix in ingredient

My kids sense an aftertaste with this product, but the cheddar jack fine shreds are GREAT in garlic cheddar biscuits or anything where a finer shred is preferred, like salads.

Great for pizza!

The cheddar shreds make amazing nachos! Some vegan cheese tastes funny melted, but this one tastes great.

Decent option, but won't buy again

It’s tasty cold, and melts great, but therein lies the problem. As soon as it melts, it seems to lose all that cheesy flavor. Might as well save yourself the money and just add extra salt. I’d choose Daiya cheese over this because the only things I typically use a cheese substitute for are enchiladas, nachos, paninis, and Mac & Cheese.
