With the new year comes six new cheese products from Miyoko’s Kitchen! Not only will there be three new pub cheeses, but also Miyoko’s is releasing three new cream cheese flavors, too. Founder of the company and author of Artisan Vegan Cheese, Miyoko Schinner, is committed to creating artisanal vegan cheeses that mimic dairy cheese products.
The three pub cheese flavors are perfect for all your dipping needs! Grab some pretzels, chips, crackers, or your favorite dipper and test out each of these new flavors. Biergarten Garlic Chive features a sharp and creamy cheddar. It includes garlic and chives, too. The Cheers to Cheddah flavor is full of rich and creamy cheddar flavors making it ideal for soft pretzel dipping. Lastly, the Spicy Revolution pub cheese is made with organic chilies to give it a little heat.
If cream cheese is more your thing, there’s three new gluten-free flavors to choose from. The Plainly Classic option is your go-to spread for bagels. If lox is more your thing, be sure to try out the Un-Lox Your Dreams spread. It’s smoky and has a seafood flavor to it. The Sensational Scallion cream cheese spread is similar to the classic version but features scallions to take it up a notch.
