Today, vegan brand Miyoko’s Creamery launched two bundles filled with vegan cheeses and butters on its website—marking the first time its newest product line is available for purchase. The new cheese line differs from Miyoko’s previous cashew-based products in that it is made from a blend of oats, legumes, and potatoes, while the brand’s new butter line is made from oats. The first bundle ($99, including shipping) includes its new Farmhouse Cheddar and Pepper Jack slices; both flavors of the new oat butter (Hint of Sea Salt and Garlic Parm); along with hard-to-find classic cheese wheel flavors (Smoked Farmhouse, Black Ash, and Herbs de Provence); and one package of its Unsalted Cultured Vegan European Style Butter. The second bundle ($85, including shipping) consists of two packages of Unsalted Cultured Vegan European Style Butter, two packages of both oat butter flavors (Hint of Salt and Garlic Parm) and one package of Salted Cultured Vegan European Style Butter, along with one tub of Roadhouse Spicy Revolution cheese spread.
Originally, Miyoko’s food truck was scheduled to tour 24 cities nationwide to give out free vegan grilled cheese sandwiches made with its new cheeses and butters but postponed the tour due to the COVID-19 outbreak. “Everyone is navigating an unprecedented change to the rhythms of their day-to-day lives. Food is one way to maintain a connection with normalcy and there’s nothing like comfort food for trying times,” Miyoko’s Creamery Founder Miyoko Schinner told VegNews. “With that in mind, while we had to postpone our Grilled Cheese Nation food truck tour, we wanted to let people bring the food truck to their home. They can make a game-changing grilled cheese sandwich, mac and cheese, and even delicious garlic bread. It’s a time to enjoy our families and reflect on how what we choose to eat can make a real difference in creating a more compassionate, sustainable, and healthier world.” To keep fans entertained during COVID-19 isolation, starting tomorrow, Schinner will be hosting Miyoko’s Home Comforts, a daily cooking show on Facebook Live at 3 pm showcasing recipes from her cookbooks and other easy-to-make dishes.
On March 20, limited quantities of the Farmhouse Cheddar and Pepper Jack cheese slices will also be available for pre-sale at Roots Market in Maryland and Rainbow Grocery in San Francisco before the new cheese and butter lines launch in full—for a suggested retail price of $5.99—at Whole Foods Markets in April, with additional retailers to follow.
