    It melts!!!
    Best flavor from TJs non dairy shredded cheeses, but not something to eat as is. Works great for quesadillas, grilled cheese, and pizza. Eat while hot though, once it is melted and cools the texture gets a bit chewy.
    Soooo much cheaper than Daiya or other nondairy shredded cheese brands!

    It is not dairy free this shit a fucking scam

    Bought this thinking it is dairy free and it is not. Used it on pizza it does not melt. I could have just bought regular cheese instead of wasting money on this crap.

    Any reasonable customer looking at this cheese would assume it’s vegan. News flash: it’s not. Apparently it’s designed for lactose-intolerant people, but at that rate you could simply remove the lactose, not trick vegans by saying it’s soy cheese. Also, you’d think since they cheated it’d taste like cheese: it doesn’t, still tastes like cardboard.

    This is extremely dangerous and misleading- advertising as a cheese alternative using soy but still having milk in the ingredients. Sent my son to the ER after one bite. Cannot believe this level of false advertising is allowed. Would sue I am so angry!

    They need to change the packaging for the sake of those with allergies. Contains milk protein.

    This is a great product for those of us with lactose and other dairy issues. It has a good taste, melts without being gooey and will toast up well for pizzas and Tex/Mex dishes. Also, very low in fat and sodium, unlike many alternatives.

    I LOVE this cheese! It melts and it actually tastes good. We use it on eggs, meatless tacos, salads, pizza, quesadilla, and anything else we enjoy having cheese on. Unfortunately, I’m allergic to cashew so this is a great alternative to someone who use to be a big cheese (cheddar, goat, brie, blue cheese, gouda, feta, swiss, pepper jack, the list goes on) eater.
    NO, it’s not dairy free and YES, they need to fix their labeling but that’s also WHY You the customer should read the label before purchasing! It literally took me less than 2min to read the label and see that YES it does in fact contain milk but is lactose free.
    I really hope they fix the labeling and bring it back to the stores.

    This is was my family’s favorite cheese that we ate at meals twice a day for years. Several ignorant vegans who buy it can’t read a label apparently. It says nowhere that it is vegan and even says it “Contains Milk”. It’s obviously not made for vegans. I don’t understand why the vegans who buy this and get upset that it’s not vegan feel entitled enough to think someone is pulling a fast one on them. 65% of the population has some form of lactose intolerance and that’s who this product is made for. It clearly states “Lactose Free” on the front of the package. It says nothing about it being Dairy Free. So thanks to some of you vegans who ruined an amazing product by getting it taken off the shelves for the rest of the lactose intolerant people who enjoy this product. This actually happened to several similar soy cheese products over the years not just TJ’s.

    I agree with the others who miss this product immensely. Although I understand and can relate to the allergy concerns because my son is allergic to egg – it was so nice having a product for my lactose intolerance that tasted good and melted like cheese should! I sure hope they bring it back – the nut versions just don’t cut it

    This is the best-tasting plant-based cheese on the market.
    The cultural terror about soy is a MYTH! Unless you’re actually allergic to soy, there is only PHYTOestrogen in soy, not well absorbed in the human body, and you’d have to ingest tons of it every day for it to make a dent.
    Replacing this cheese, which actually has some nutritional value like protein, with OIL-BASED alternatives that are even more highly processed and UNHEALTHY is a terrible move.
    Same with how hard it is now to find soy-based ice creams, yogurts, and other soy-based foods.
    Now everything has coconut in it – and I’m allergic to THAT!

    I have used this cheese for years, because I am lactose intolerant. I am so sad to hear that it is discontinued. If you’re listening, Trader Joe, please carry this product again!

  13. Kit

    Please Trader Joe, bring this cheese back! I am lactose intolerant and love the way this cheese melted. It sounds like it’s just a packaging copy issue, not a product issue.

    Only Vegan cheese that doesn’t have a gross flavor and melts like cheese actually!!! Please bring it back!!!
