It’s been a busy few weeks for us here in Vienna lately.
I found a vegan käse (cheese in German) at Biomarkt Maran (near Neubau, 1070 Wien, Lindengasse 13-15). What’s weird is that I have been to four Biomarkt locations and only one of them carries Cheezly + Bacon Bits cheese. The packaging appears different from the ones I’ve seen in the UK but I guess it’s just rebranded and repackaged for the German speaking market.
I was hesitant to try vegan cheese with bacon bits because vegan bacon can have an overpowering flavor. My curiosity got the best of me though and I decided that we needed to try this unique product.
It didn’t melt as well as Daiya cheese, but it has a very good texture to slice and serve with crackers. This cheese does indeed have a strong bacon-like flavor but I still love snacking on it with Wasa crackers. Try toasting the cheese in the oven and the aroma is borderline overwhelming.
What’s fabulous is that the cheese lasted in our fridge, opened, for over a week without any signs of spoiling.
