Follow Your Heart® Vegan Cheeses Giveaway! #CheeseKarma


Okay, I was a little iffy when this review came my way. Vegan cheese? I was not sure if there was such a thing and if it would actually taste like cheese. But because we are on a journey to start eating better and trying new products to help us eat better, I wanted to try this for myself.

When the Follow Your Heart® vegan cheeses showed up at my door they looked just like real cheese. I received various flavors. The first thing I did was look at the ingredients list because I wanted to know what the heck vegan cheeses would be made from.

The "cheeses" are made with coconut oil, potato starch, olive extract, water, sea salt and other non dairy ingredients. I also noticed that all the vegan "cheeses" had the same texture and feel of any cheese I could buy at the store. The "cheese" also melts like any other cheese.


When I tried the American "cheese" it actually tasted like the string cheese you get at the grocery. It was not like the horrible American cheese slices I grew up with. It was actually quite tasty and I would definitely put these into sandwiches or eat them straight out of the package.

I melted some of the provolone on a piece of toast an gave it to hubby who did not even notice this was not real dairy cheese. In fact, he liked and when I told him it was vegan, he thought I was joking. The Garden Herb was really tasty on crackers. Hubby had no idea I had switched that out either. That is how much the vegan "cheese" is like real cheese.

Here is some info about the various cheeses:

· Provolone slices, blocks, and snacks – Just as flavorful as the Italian classic, with a creamy taste and texture that’s so irresistible, you won’t be able to stop at one bite.


· American slices, blocks, and snacks – Inspired by the classic favorite, this “cheese” has the mild flavor and creamy texture that kids love, with none of the artificial ingredients.


· Garden Herb slices and blocks – Elevate your vegan cheese experience with this enticing Garden Herb, seasoned with an elegant blend of thyme and oregano. Delicious warm, melted or cold, and great for entertaining, this gourmet vegan cheese will be the hit of the party!


· Mozzarella slices and blocks – Mozzarella cheese is #1 for a reason, and this new vegan version rivals its dairy counterpart in both taste and texture. Shredded on top of your favorite Italian dish, it melts into creamy deliciousness. Even eaten straight out of the package, this mozzarella is a crowd pleaser!


Honestly, I was expecting vegan cheese would be awful but it wasn't. I am a cheese lover and an super picky about my cheese. But I would eat and buy this because it passed for real cheese. It is made with non-GMO products and no dairy. Plus, it's vegan so I feel good about replacing my regular cheese with these Follow Your Heart cheeses. I have to say I am totally amazed that I liked this cheese. It will not replace the artisanal cheeses I love but it will replace the cheese I use for my everyday dishes like tacos, lasagna and on sandwiches.

New Follow Your Heart® vegan cheeses have already begun to hit store shelves nationwide. If yoj are serious about changing your eating habits and losing the fat and preservatives from processed cheese, these are a great alternative.
