We tried the Kite Hill plain after we sampled the chive — and expected this flavor to be less exciting than its chive version. But while it’s not chivey, it is no less delicious. Among three tasters of a good many vegan cream cheeses over the years, this is the hands-on favorite. This almond-milk-based cheese … Continue reading Kite Hill Cream Cheese – Plain

This is my new favorite cream cheese. I used to be addicted to Daiya’s chive & onion cream cheese for bagels, but now it’s this Kite Hill variety. I haven’t looked back. This Kite Hill cream cheese is perfect … light, fluffy, creamy, with a wonderful flavor if you like the chives. It’s delicious and … Continue reading Kite Hill Cream Cheese – Chive

As ever, Miyoko’s Creamery is always trying new and amazing things. We were thrilled to see a new cream cheese available, and we ordered it right away. (It’s not currently on the Miyoko’s website, but join the mailing list to be notified of new cheeses!) The cream cheese doesn’t have the smooth texture that others … Continue reading Miyoko’s cream cheese

Cream cheese is one of those foods that is really hard to replicate, and I finally found a cream cheese I like in Daiya’s Chive & Onion. Then I heard that Trader Joe’s has a vegan cream cheese. This TJ’s version was recommended by a friend who doesn’t like Daiya and hadn’t found a palatable … Continue reading Trader Joe’s Vegan Cream Cheese

Though I love Daiya’s cream cheese, when I saw Kite Hill‘s chive cream cheese at Whole Foods, I thought I’d give it a try. Wow. This cream cheese is even more amazing than Daiya’s. It’s creamier, and the chive flavor is far stronger and fresher. The reason the photo below is of a cracker rather … Continue reading Kite Hill Cream Cheese – Chive

Most vegans are well aware of Daiya and its vast and yummy selection of vegan cheeses; this company provides many vegan staples…like cream cheese. I’ve sampled many vegan cream cheeses out there, and I’ve found Daiya to be the best so far (same goes for its shreds, which melt very well and are rich and … Continue reading Daiya cream cheese

Mr. Dewie’s cashew ice cream is no longer available in grocery stores, but if you’re lucky enough to visit the Bay Area, you can visit one of the creameries yourself. And we highly recommend doing this. We visited the Albany store for a few scoops, and could not resist taking home pints, bon bons, and … Continue reading Mr. Dewie’s Cashew Creamery

Since we are still in a heat wave, we sampled Nada Moo! coconut-milk ice cream, which came highly recommended by a fellow sweet tooth who says she’s never met a Nada Moo flavor she didn’t like. After tasting Nada Moo’s Cookies & Creme, we feel quite certain that we’d agree about all the other flavors. … Continue reading Nada Moo! coconut-milk ice cream

It was rumored for a long time that Ben & Jerry’s would introduce vegan flavors — and they’re here! With summer on the way, we highly recommend stocking up on all these dairy-free flavors. Made with almond milk, Ben & Jerry’s has four vegan flavors (so far), and all are absolutely divine. Chunky Monkey (banana … Continue reading Ben & Jerry’s vegan ice cream

Here are two more cheeses from the Sanctuary at Soledad Goats. The first is cheddar style, which was not what we expected, since the website’s photo of this cheese is white, not orange, and sliceable, not spreadable. Yet the flavor of this variety is nicely cheddar, though there is a hint of sweetness, which may … Continue reading Soledad Cheddar and Cracked Pepper cheeses
