    A Vegan-Style Taste of Cheeses From Around The World

    There are so many types of vegan cheeses nowadays. We can go from the familiar cheddar to the fancier, artisanal cheese wheels. And they’re all free from dairy! 

    But why are there so many different types of vegan cheeses? Well, those wanting to switch to a vegan diet often hesitate because they love cheese so much - and we understand that feeling. That’s why alternatives come in a wide variety. 

    What’s more, dairy-free or vegan cheeses make it so that even folks with certain nut or soy allergies can also enjoy them. Now more people can enjoy cheese!
