Review: Amy's Mac and Cheeze

Yea, that's cheeze with a "z".

Since going vegan, I've tried non-dairy, boxed mac and cheese. Nice try, but no. I've seen the recipes on Vegan Yum Yum and other recipes people have been so kind to offer me, but I haven't made them. For me, mac and cheese is a tradition of making something really quick for immediate satisfaction. Gooey, gooey satisfaction.

Needless to say, I had high hopes for the mac and "cheeze" of Amy's. The picture on the box looks fantastic. And I feel lucky I even got a box of it, since there were only a few left in the store's freezer.

I had it for a snack at work. And...we have a winner! This stuff will never be like the real thing, but it's really damn close. Mmmmm, cheesy, salty, not really good-for-me goodness. Thanks Amy's!


  1. mmmm i love all of the Amy brand products! this gives me a craving for some mac n cheese!

  2. Looks good, I'll have to check it out. Have you tried Daiya vegan cheese? They have it at Whole Foods and it's excellent. I just made some vegan nachos with it, incredible... Cheers

  3. I agree. I had it and was totally in like with it. It's not like the real thing but it doesn't suck. Veganism hasn't quite figured out "cheeze" yet, but in the meantime, I'm sucking back the Amy's.

  4. Ahh yeah - just saw your Pizza Cookery review, and you know Daiya. Word!

  5. You finally found it! Glad it was all you hoped it would be :) My Whole Foods doesn't appear to carry that one, but they have Amy's "Macaroni & Soy Cheeze": I haven't tried it yet, but the picture looks just as creamy & tasty as the "Rice Macaroni and Non-dairy Cheeze."
