Violife Vegan Cheddar Cheese

If you’re anything like me, the thought of vegan cheese sounds wrong, gross and ultimately pointless.


I made the decision to do Veganuary, and since doing that I thought I would try my best to find a cheese alternative to curve the cravings I would (and ultimately did) have.

Violife cheddar was the winner. While I still wouldn’t recommend snacking on a slice on its own, as a topping or filling it’s the best substitute I could find.

The taste is hard to describe. Yes,  it’s cheesey, but there’s something artificial about it. The best way to eat this cheese is melted on a toastie. It melts well and exactly the same as ordinary cheese, it tastes nice, and it’s not too expensive.

My recommended serving for a delicious vegan toastie would be: 2 slices of bread, 2 slices Violife cheddar, tomato purée, Italian seasoning, 1 toastie/panini maker and you’re golden.

If you are looking for a vegan cheese either because you’re vegan, trying veganuary, or are lactose intolerant, I would definitely try this cheese. It’s available at any Holland and Barrett.
