Field Roast’s Herbed Chao Cheese Slices: How Good Is It?
While on my normal monthly trip to Whole Foods, I decided to try something different than the normal Daiya cheese slices. Daiya is a dairy-free cheese that has been on the market for quite some time. Back in the day when vegan cheeses first hit the market (I’m not going to lie here) they weren’t that good. A lot of people state that they could never adopt a compassionate diet because they could never go without cheese. Well, let me tell you: while Daiya is good and all and my son (who eats compassionately like me) is very fond of grilled cheese sandwiches made with it, we decided to expand our palates and try a different dairy-free cheese. Behold, Field Roast’s Coconut Herb Chao Slices!
Field Roast is popular for their line of kind food products, including sausages, deli slices, roasts, cheeses and more, which I have always liked. There is no better way to try out new, dairy-free cheese than to make a grilled cheese sandwich! My son and I went straight home and put this cheese to the test!
Opening the package, the slices were easy to separate and didn’t crumble in your hand like other dairy-free cheeses I know. It smelled delicious and melted just like dairy cheese (melting time/consistency is a concern for some). My son and I split the sandwich and WOW, my mouth was instantly filled with decadent herb flavor with a hint of coconut. It was savory and sweet at the same time, making my taste buds sing (if they could sing it would definitely be opera at this point). It was so good, even my 16 month old son Beau (who thinks throwing his food is hilarious and will throw ANY food given to him) gobbled it up and didn’t miss a crumb! Children, especially toddlers, are the hardest food critics out there. If my son approved it has to be great!
I would definitely give this dairy-free, compassionate cheese a try if I were you! What is even better than its taste is the fact that no animals were harmed in the making and processing of it, which means it's not only good for your family, but good for animals and the environment too!
