Vegan Cheese Challenge #6: Galaxy’s New Cream Cheese Line
Galaxy Nutritional Foods, the company that brought you Rice Slices and Vegan “cheese” Slices, has debuted their much anticipated new line of delicious non-dairy vegan cream cheeses. And let me tell you, to this non-dairy girl, the little tubs of vegan cream cheese couldn’t have come at a better time.
Just when I was thinking of throwing a garden party to celebrate the coming of spring with little cucumber and cream cheese tea sandwiches, Galaxy throws down the best vegan “cream cheese alternative” I’ve ever tasted!
The Chive and Garlic version was out of this world – I took it to a karaoke party where the vegans in attendance (Michael Parrish Dudell, HuffPo writer and editor at the Domino Project, Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart the Founder of Vaute Couture, and Marisa Miller Wolfson the director of Vegucated, a documentary following a group of people who try a plant-based diet for 30 days) practically licked the container clean.
Galaxy’s new product is missing that old grainy, kinda-tofu like consistency and texture that was such a turn off.
The line is available in Classic Plain and Chive and Garlic under the Galaxy Nutritional Foods Veggie and Vegan brands. Both lines are vegan, gluten free, and certified kosher.
