Vegan MoFo 2013 | Post 3: Daiya Swiss Slices Review

The perfect open-faced grilled cheese: A slice of Daiya Swiss, sliced yellow tomatoes, red onion, salt and pepper on a slice of multigrain bread.

I’m not a huge buyer of cheese substitutes, but whenever something new comes out I’m always curious. Daiya introduced slices a few months ago, and I’ve been staring at the Swiss-style slices every time I visit Whole Foods. I gave in last weekend and bought a pack, thinking they’d be good for mac and cheese, and let me tell you, they are good for just about everything. Seriously good.

11 slices come in a pack, with pieces of wax paper separating them. The Swiss-style slices even have holes like “real” Swiss cheese, which is a fun touch. Out of the package, these slices taste almost exactly like what I remember Swiss tasting like, although a tad sweeter, with plenty of tang and sharpness The texture is good, but softer than what I remember. These would be perfectly acceptable with faux luncheon meat on a sandwich, but I wanted to test out the cheese’s melting abilities, so I made an open-faced grilled cheese (pictured above). Amazing! It melted beautifully.

The price ranges from $4-$6, but if you can splurge, these slices are definitely worth it. I’m looking forward to seeing how they hold up in mac & cheese! 5/5 stars.

Have you tried Daiya slices? What do you think?

    I am in love with everything Daiya. Being a college student, I don’t often get to splurge but when I do it’s on Diaya and Gardein products. I was always a cheese eater as an omni and Daiya filled the (relatively small) gap, considering I initially cut dairy out because of an allergy.
    Definitely my favorite!
