Is this the tastiest vegan cheese?
When it comes to cheese, the wizards at Applewood are certainly the experts, having been making delicious cheese since 1965.
Their dedicated cooks and nutritionists have been extra-busy for 2 years and have now crafted a range of truly scrumptious vegan cheeses for us to enjoy. With all the signature creamy texture and smoky flavour you have come to expect.
What Does It Taste Like?
Well, to give you an idea, here’s a headline from Somerset Live newspaper, when the cheese was launched…
“New ‘game-changer’ plant-based cheese sells out everywhere as crazed vegans raid shelves”
Apparently, frenzied shoppers were buying up to 14 packs of the Somerset cheese at a time, which even surprised the bosses at Applewood HQ.
In fact, this cheese accounts for 20% of all UK sales, which is fantastic news! It’s also keeping the Applewood team busy, with new products available here very soon.
In fact its SO good that it’s won a cabinet full of well-deserved honours, including the 2019 PETA UK award for the best tasting vegan cheese on the market.” Also, the Gold Award at the FreeFrom Food Awards 2020.
Other honours include Best Vegan Cheeze in the 2019 Vegan Food UK Awards. Not forgetting the very tasty Best Vegan Cheeze For Melting in the Vegan Cheeze Co. 2019 Awards.
Social media went crazy, with ‘Those Vegan Guys’ doing a video review of Applewood vegan cheese and they said: “It’s brilliant! It’s beautiful. Just as a piece of cheese to snack on it’s gorgeous! “It was made for the melt, epic cheese on toast. Applewood, you’ve smashed it out of the park!”
Nutrition & Allergies
With added calcium and vitamin B12 you won’t miss out on any goodness. In fact it’s so good that their cheese is registered with the Vegan Society and the packaging carries their Logo for your peace of mind.
If you have a nut allergy it’s reassuring to know that their cheeses are nut-free and are made in a nut-free site here in the UK, eliminating the risk of cross contamination.
Also, if you’re following a gluten-free diet then you can still enjoy these delectable cheeses as they are all gluten-free.
Well that’s enough talking – show me the cheese please!

What Makes This Range Of Vegan Cheese So Special?
Maybe you have been used to dairy cheeses. There is something very familiar about the taste, texture and the specific aroma. Well this cheese delivers on all counts.
What About Cooking?
There’s no worries about that either. Perfect for adding to pizzas or adding to just about any recipe. It will behave just as good as its dairy counterpart and its meltability is excellent.
It’s not surprising they taste so good because of the rich heritage and experience of the Applewood tradition. The really encouraging thing is that they are at the forefront of innovation.
