It's been a few years since I last purchased vegan cheese from Follow Your Heart. Probably even before I went vegan, actually. I have to say I wasn't fond of their vegan cheeses. So that - in short - is why I haven't bought them again...UNTIL NOW...
Many of my blogging buddies who have been lucky enough to locate Daiya's Smoked Gouda and have blogged about had me craving it. I thought maybe if anyone had it - it would be the brand new Whole Foods Market in Buffalo. But, Nope!
So...I when I saw they had this smoked gouda from FYH I thought I would 'settle' for it. Well, color me SURPRISED! It's flippin' fabulous! Now I want to go out and grab all of the other Follow Your Heart Sliced Vegan Cheeses I come across to see what I have been missing!
They must have really upped their game the last few years because I don't remember having a positive encounter before. Glad I stepped outside my comfort zone and paid them a re-visit!
A funny addition to this story is that DH mistakenly opened MY VEGAN CHEESE and ate TWO SLICES out of it before I did! When I went to use it for the first time and noticed the package was open I asked him about it and he said that he didn't know it was mine. I totally believe him because he always poo-poo's my stuff. I said to him...well, it must have been good if you didn't complain about it. He said that he didn't notice...so...I'll chalk that up as a WIN in the vegan cheese category!
