Product Review: Daiya Cheddar Style Cheezy Mac

I didn’t feel like dinner.  I felt like some vegan sin food.  And I was longing for those old school, bad-for-you velveeta experiences.

While roaming the aisles tonight at Food Fight, I decided to try the new Daiya Cheezy Mac and grabbed a box.

The pasta came out chewy perfect and I was really impressed with the cheeze sauce. It was a thick liquid cheese, just like I remember the shells and cheese of my non-vegan days.  Only this time, there were “V”s and all kinds of badges on the box that are supposed to make me feel better about the fake cheese.

It didn’t matter.

The nutritional facts are not too shabby either, but you can surely taste the high sodium.  I would not suggest eating this with any kind of frequent regularity.  Ingredients are surprisingly natural which is a stark contrast to the aforementioned velveeta experiences.

The sauce is so good and was the perfect sinfood for tonight.  I paired it with a bottle of Pinedrops IPA from Deschutes (one of my current fav IPAs) and sliced up some Field Roast Frankfurters to go into the mac.  Just like my Great Aunt Ruth used to make me after school.

If you are looking for a throwback sinfood, Daiya Cheezy Mac is by far the way to go!
