Two posts in under two hours! I am a chatty Kathy today. I just had some of this smoked Gouda style cheese from Daiya with crackers as a snack yesterday, and had to share the love. I believe in balance, and I have criticized, and will continue to criticize daiya for not tasting pleasant cold. That is one of my favorite things about Chao slices, I can eat them alone, right out of the fridge.
Well, Daiya went and proved me wrong with their newish smoked Gouda style block. It definitely has a smoky flavor, and it tastes great cold, with crackers, or dare I say even alone! It really is some kind of miracle! It has been many years since I've had real smoked Gouda, but it was one of my favorites, and this is very close to what I remember. Texture wise it's a little softer, but taste-wise it's pretty dang close. Life is getting exciting when daiya is starting to taste good cold! Woot woot!
Have you tried this flavor of daiya?
