Heidi Ho Organic Hazelnut Cheezes

In the last couple years, Vegan cheeses have really blown up. I think it's an exciting time to try Veganism and one of the gateways is cheese. So having a multitude of choices is important. One of the newest entries into the Vegan cheese world is Heidi Ho Organics. Heidi Ho is different because they use hazelnuts instead of soy or tapioca. And I'm sure you're dying to know, yes, it does melt! For the time being these cheezes are only available in Portland, Oregon but will be available at their website soon.

Chipotle Cheddar was my favorite of the three. It had a hearty spicy taste that was begging to be shredded into some tacos (which I eventually did).

Monterey Jack had mellow buttery flavor that was delicious on crackers. A slice on a veggie burger would be yum also.

Smoked Gouda had a smoked tangy flavor. I've never eaten real gouda and the only reason I know about it is Mr. Mom. It would be good on a Tofurky sandwich.

For the tasting cracker, I went with the Late July Classic Rich. I found them to be very buttery and delicious. These would take down a Ritz cracker any day. Look how far Veganism has come, wine and cheeze all day!


  1. This looks good; we'll definitely try it when it becomes available. It really is a brave new world out there; it's amazing how many more great products have come on the market in just the past few years. When I was in the UK I had a chance to try the Cheezly blue flavor, and it blew the Sheese version away (and I'm a big Sheese fan): it melted, it spread on crackers, and - best of all - it TASTED LIKE BLUE CHEESE! Fingers crossed that they get their North American distribution issues sorted out!

  2. According to the Heidi Ho website Food Fight has it which means I will have to pick some up in a couple of weeks. I will be at Scapegoat so why not

  3. We picked up some of the Chipotle Cheddar while as the PSU Farmers Market and, oh man, this stuff is GOOD! It's a little pricey, but it's well worth it!

  4. OMG! I MUST try this when I'm in Portland. I'm hoping it's true that Food Fight has it b/c I'll be there for the pop-up sandwich shop. I'm sure it wouldn't keep on the plane, but I bet I can manage to eat a whole block before I leave town. Come to think of it, I'm going to gain a million pounds in Portland.

  5. They are available online @ Spencer's market!
