Yep, you read the title correctly. I bring to you another vegan mac n cheese review. I think we could start our own blog about vegan mac n cheeses. The market is starting to get a little saturated with vegan mac n cheeses. I’d like to say this is a good thing. I’d like to jump for joy and say that you could go into any grocery store in anytown, U.S.A. and get a good box. However, that isn’t the case. Daiya, one of the best, is making its way into mainstream stores like Kroger. That just isn’t good enough. When Food Lion starts carrying mac n cheese that is vegan, I’ll officially jump for joy.
The other issue is the quality of the mac n cheeses. So far the good ones are Daiya, Earth Balance and Pastariso. Then, there are the ones that I’d rather not eat like So Delicious, Annie’s and now Namaste. I found the Namaste Say Cheez box at a small specialty store and I was excited because I had remembered liking the products that I’ve tried in the past. We decided to make it one day for lunch on a weekend and as I was making it, I gave it a taste. The product didn’t taste all that edible, so we added cut up tomato, spinach and hot sauce to help it “go down”. It did not taste cheesy at all. It looks like mac n cheese, but it didn’t taste anything like I was hoping. I noticed the product was made with rice milk and if you have a lot of allergies, this might be the mac n cheese for you. However, in terms of vegan and gluten free mac n cheeses, I’d save my money and try another brand.
