We're not proud to say this, but we've now had a few tubs of this Sheese Creamy Chive Cheese, and it's a favourite of ours, we love it.

Why do we love it though? Other than being popular in most supermarkets, which means you can pick it up without ordering online, there are a number of reasons we love this vegan cheese.

Eating The Sheese Creamy Chive Plain

This vegan cheese is plain but delightful, satisfying to eat it straight from a knife as you scoop it out.

With Black Bean Pasta

Black bean pasta is a favourite of ours, thick, chewy and full of protein, we love mixing it with other foods and making sauces for it.

With this meal we simply added the Sheese Creamy Chive Vegan Cheese to the pasta to see what it was like.

We love it, it's quite a plain cheese but it adds a bit of chives to the taste and makes the pasta more appetising.

If you're looking for a cheese to add to meals that doesn't over power it, this will work well.

It melts quickly and liquifies in to the hot pasta, adding a couple of tablespoons is more than enough for a single meal.

It still makes the dish a simple one but is a nice touch.

Sheese On Rye Bread and Crackers

When spread on rye bread or crackers, the Sheese Creamy Chive Cheese spread is refreshing and has quite a plain and neutral taste to it. This means it is great for flavourful crackers and rye breads as you get a lovely cream cheese on top of a flavourful cracker.

The chives don't kick through that much, there are small sour notes to it and it reminds us of plain yogurt.

This may sound like it doesn't taste like cheese spread at all, on the contrary, it is very much like older cheese spreads of past we have tried that were non-vegan.

Appearance

A white cream cheese with small chive bits within. It is quite soft but still holds it's shape when spread and removed from the tub unless it is melting in a meal.

Looking at it once spread on a cracker it takes the shape of how you spread it, it is easy to move around and firm still.

It can look crumbly and smooth at the same time, it has a great consistency and you don't have to worry about it falling off your crackers.

Aroma

The aroma of the cheese spread is herbal, a little sour but smells quite refreshing.

It has a very pleasant aroma.

Flavour

The flavour of the cheese is quite salty at first and with a very subtle milky after taste. 

The chives are quite subtle and you need to be eating the cheese on its own and raw without anything else to notice this.

Texture

The texture is soft, creamy yet firm. It will hold it's shape very well and also spread very easily.

Finish

The chive comes through at the end if you eat it with a plain cracker or rye bread.

Summary of Sheese Chive Cream Cheese Spread

A very friendly vegan cheese spread which will suit many occassions and meals.

It starts out salty, is creamy and slightly sour and milky and finishes with touches of chives, a great cheese.

Perfect for spreading, dripping in to with bread sticks and even pasta dishes where it will melt in to the meal.

If you're looking for a plain cream vegan cheese to spread and add to meals to moisten them up a little, you can't do much better than Sheese.

Whats great about this brand too is that it's available in a lot of supermarkets and online stores, it's easy to get your hands on compared to other vegan cheeses.
