mouses favourite

The Mouse's Favourite artisan vegan alternative to camembert. It comes at a slightier higher price tag at around £8 however once you learn what goes into making such a vegan cheese and the processess involved the price makes sense.

The cheese is made from simple natural ingredients. Cashews, water, sea salt and cultures, would you believe it.

Packaging

The camembert style cheese comes packaged in a small thin card box and paper wrapper. Its packaging looks inviting and although bought online I would feel this looks appealing to shoppers to pick off a shelf from its outer presentation.

On Cheese Board

Every vegan cheese board needs a camembert style vegan cheese as a centre piece. Mouse's Favourites does a fine job at providing such a inviting looking cheese. I have to say that many of our guests were intrigued by how this cheese would taste and would it taste as much like camembert as it looks?

Appearance

Mouse's Favourite camembert style vegan cheese looks near identical in appearance to what I remember camembert to be, a white crusty rind covers the outside of the cheese.

To the edges you can see a darkened yellow cheese coming through. A slice through the middle cuts through a thick rind that reveals a sumptiously soft texture. Not gooey unless you have warmed up your Mouse's Favourite camembert cheese.

Aroma

This camembert style vegan cheese does have a little whiff to it.

The rind of the cheese provides the mould like smell.

Flavour

This camembert style vegan cheese melts in your mouth, the inner centre of the cheese is soft and turns creamy.

It has quite a rich flavour to it, if you were a lover of camembert before going vegan this is a cheese you will need to try even if you normally would have it in breadcrumbs.

You can hardly taste the cashews that are involved in the beautiful creation.

Texture

This is a vegan cheese all about the texture.

From the very centre to the outer rim differs completely in its texture. A texture perfectly described as camembert style.

It has a gooey squishy melty inner cheese with a delectable dense texture. 

When baked the cheese becomes even softer, however the cheese doesn't melt fully into a sauce like consistency.

The outside rind is slightly hard and firm but tastes wonderful to bite into.

Longevity

Mouse's Favourite Camembert Style vegan cheese can be kept for up to two to three weeks as long as its in the fridge below 5ºc.

The cheese can be frozen but we didn't have a chance to do that as it was eaten far too quickly. It does say that if it is frozen the taste and appearance may not be quite as good as when eaten fresh.

 

Environmentally Friendly Credentials

This vegan cheese scores high on environmemtally friendly credentials with just a few ingredients as well as wholesome and natural ingredients.

The cheese is also packaged in a paper and card wrapper.

Another environmental positive is that Mouses Favourite are a completely vegan cheese brand.

Summary

Mouse's Favourite Camembert Style vegan cheese is a flavour packing texture rich cheese that deserves its place on your cheese board and if you can afford it maybe even a little more often because you deserve it.
