As former gouda fans, we were excited to try this Smoked Gouda style cheese from Daiya.

Yet we found, to our surprise, that this variety is not quite as delicious as Daiya’s other wedge-style cheeses.

The texture was a bit chalky, and the flavor was a bit smoky but without the gouda spark we were hoping for.

Daiya is currently in the process of updating its wedge-style cheeses (see Medium Cheddar Farmhouse Block) and so perhaps they’ll improve on this one. And, in the meantime, don’t miss some of the other fabulous Daiya products (especially the cheezecake!).
