so, vegan gourmet (aka follow your heart, or is it the other way around?) has come out with a new cream cheese. i was really excited about this development, because i adore vegenaise, and FYH is generally our cheese of choice around these parts. i've been keeping an eye out for it, and also the rumored new sour cream, but hadn't seen it anywhere until last week. i stumbled across a container of the cream cheese at our local teensy co-op, of all places, and snatched it up. i'd been meaning to try it in a head-to-head taste test with our usual tofutti, but kept forgetting.
the other night, i had a weird craving for bagels and cream cheese, so i took the FYH cream cheese along with a half-dozen bagels to a get-together with some friends. i also bought some new peanut butter, but i'll save that for another post, because i have much to say. anyscoot, i was more excited about the peanut butter than the cream cheese when it came right down to it, so i didn't try the cream cheese until pretty late at night. i tasted a bit straight-up, and sadly, i wasn't impressed. i put some on a bit of bread, and it was better, but not by very much. i'm bummed. i had very high hopes!
i will give it another try in its properly-refrigerated state, and i will do it in head-to-head taste-test fashion, but if it doesn't do it for me i'm just turning it into dip and sticking with ye olde tried 'n true tofutti. has anyone else tried it (or the new sour cream)? opinions?
