Appearance

This is a 150 gram square block of light yellow cheese that looks just like cheddar. This is un-mistakeabley a vegan alternative to cheddar.

Koko have named this cheese, deliciously mellow, maybe to stay clear of any future lawsuits.

For people new to vegan cheese this on first glance looks rather similar to dairy cheese.

Texture

This Koko vegan cheese has a semi firm texture, it is easy to slice through, it doesn't crumble and creates lovely slices great for popping on a cracker, it also grates easily, as the photo and videos above show.

We believe this is a perfect vegan style cheddar cheese you can pop on to bread to make the perfect vegan cheese on toast.

Longevity

This cheese had a best before date of a month after I had bought it suggesting this cheese has quite a long shelf life until openned.

It is recommended not to freeze it and once opened consume within seven days.
