Daiya Cream Cheese Alternative Review

Have you heard of Daiya before? If not they make a large variety of dairy free cheese alternatives. One of the newest addition is cream cheese. If you are like me, someone who used to have dairy but then turned lactose intolerant, you know what cream cheese taste like. I miss cream cheese a lot. Well I should say I MISSED it. Because now, this is just like cream cheese. 

I have tried other brands, the other one that I don't mind is from Go Veggie. But the texture is kind of off. This Daiya got the texture of actual cream cheese spot on.

That is cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top of everything...try's amazing

Like most alternatives, if you're expecting it to taste exactly like the "regular" thing. Don't. Because then you will be disappointed. The taste to me kind of has a tang to it. But it's not to bad. What I like most is the texture. It's what you would expect cream cheese to be.

They also have a strawberry cream cheese as well. I CAN NOT wait to get my hands on that! 

Overall I would defiantly recommend this to anyone. Especially since they do not use soy in anything. A lot of cheese alternatives use soy, which for me soy is better than dairy, but soy isn't good for you. 

Here's a link to their website so you can check out all their great products!
