Hickory-Smoked Vegan Cheddar

This smoky spread had us back for seconds, thirds, and fourths with its nacho-friendly, crave-worthy flavor.


I henceforth dub this era Vegan Cheese: The Next Generation. These incarnations of dairy-free delights are so creamy, flavorful, and versatile that they put the milk-made stuff to shame. When we first feasted on WayFare’s We Can’t Say It’s Cheese in Hickory Cheddar, we could hardly believe our taste buds. While we considered keeping this amazing savory spread all to ourselves, our sense of heroic duty called, necessitating that we share the wealth. We’re picturing this cheery cheese melted on nachos, dolloped on chili, or just chowed on some crackers or chips, but the sky is really the limit. This vegan cheese might be boldly going where no cheese has gone before—into the furthermost galaxies of dairy-free deliciousness. We can’t wait to see what else is out there.
