0

Despite the popularity of Trader Joe’s Vegan Cream Cheese alternative, the hip supermarket chain has opted to completely change their recipe. They’ve swapped chickpea protein for the soy protein, cut the cornstarch, and switched up several other ingredients.  It still looks enticing, but how does it taste?

I am devestated by the formula change. The precious vegan cream cheese was a staple for me and the beat on the market. The new kind is completely unspreadable, has a terrible texture and the taste is not nearly as good. Definitely will not repurchase
