Oh, vegan cheese. Vegan cheese! How bad you used to be . . . and now, how very far you’ve come!

It feels like every year vegan cheese just gets better and better, with more innovation, more creativity, and more variety. But despite the epic advancements made in meltiness, stretchiness, and salty savory deliciousness, there’s still one thing that’s been sorely missing from the vegan cheese scene.

Because aside from high-priced or homemade cultured nut cheeses, we’ve pretty much had to live without a cheese that could be eaten cold, straight from the package. Like, a fruit or crackers cheese. Like . . . something sharp and creamy to eat with baguette. Or a tangy provolone to pair with crisp, sweet apples. Simple. Easy.

You know what I’m talking about. That delightful experience of slicing cheese straight from the block, bit by bit . . . best when done with friends. And wine. I mean, amiright??

And that’s what’s been missing from our vegan cheese scene! Well, until now.

(There is some wind noise going on here, and I apologize for that. I’m still getting the hang of this whole video thing, and there’s a learning curve. I hope you enjoy it despite the background wind!)

Quick video recap –> THIS STUFF IS FANTASTIC!

There are four flavors in the new line: American, Provolone, Mozzarella, and Garden Herb. And honestly? *Creamy* was the word of the day when we tasted these cheeses. Like, we all just couldn’t believe how amazingly fantastic the texture was! I’ve never tasted a vegan cheese that was so delicious and delightful to eat without heating.

But also, in case you’re wondering how it melts . . .

Vegan 4-cheese lasagna. Waits ate 2 giant platefuls of this. Big hit, haha. Big hit.

So the new line of Follow Your Heart vegan cheeses should be hitting the shelves of Whole Foods and health food stores nation-wide, like now. Keep an eye out for this stuff!

OH AND ALSO! The awesome folks at Follow Your Heart are giving away THE ENTIRE LINE OF CHEESES to one lucky Bonzai reader! All you have to do to enter is answer this question in the comments below:

What are you dying to make with this new vegan cheese???

And as always, your friendly reminder – I think “like-gating” / “fan-gating” is weird and insincere, and I’ll never make you guys do it.

That being said, the truth is that social media stats are pretty important these days, in blogging as well as in business. So no, I’m not going to require you to “like” me all over the Internet just to enter this giveaway. BUT, if you do like my blog and enjoy the work I do here, then liking my Facebook page, or following me on Instagram or on Twitter, or subscribing to my Youtube channel, is a great, easy way to help me out. Those numbers really do count for something.

But no coercion. ALL you have to do to enter to win this WHOLE line of vegan cheese, is just leave a comment here, on this post, answering that question above. That’s it!

This giveaway will end on Saturday 25 April at midnight PST. I’ll contact the winner the next day.

Congratulations to Linda Fritz-Murphy, who said:

“First, cubed with crackers and vegan red wine, on the patio, with a friend. Then, creative quesadilla time – mushrooms, greens, cranberries and provolone on a whole wheat tortilla shell…thanks for this opportunity!”

Yay, look for an email from me!

    The Follow Your Heart nacho cheese has always been my favorite, so I am really excited to try these flavors. I would love to make a lasagna if it looked as good as your picture! I would also really like to make a cheesy broccoli soup.

  • Beignet

    I would love to try these! I’ve had such disappointing luck with vegan cheese in the past I’d like to give this a go

  • Kate

    Grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup. Hands down.

  • Nikki

    I might have to get used to the idea of trying vegan cheese cold- but cheese, gf crackers, and apples is a snack I haven’t had in YEARS, so that would be amazing!

  • Jackie

    I’m excited to try some sliced on a crispy baguette.

  • Tyneisha

    This would be interesting to try out!! I’d like to try a vegan mac and cheese!

  • Morgan

    Definitely cheese curds or a cheesy tofu scramble.

  • Elizabeth

    Is it palm oil free? Primate habitats, y’all. http://www.orangutan.org.au/palm-oil

  • Elizabeth

    They don’t all have ingredient lists but it looks like they might be!

  • ap

    It would be great to put on taco soup! Something about tex mex just screams out for cheezy gooeyness.

  • Toni Dill

    Southwest Kansas won’t get this for me! Le sob

  • Alison

    After trying a few vegan cheeses that left me thinking, “Ohdearlord. WHY? Does this company hate people?”, I decided I could live without vegan cheese. But I gave it one more shot based on your recommendation and I’m so glad I did. Follow Your Heart is melt-y and creamy and yummy – such a huge improvement on the horrors of vegan cheese-past. Thank you!
