Sensitive stomachs, rejoice! This is a dairy-free, nut-free, grain-free, and coconut-free cheesey spread! This tastes similar to a smoky cheddar cheese, except it's easier to spread than cheddar cheese. Win-win situation going on here. Slab this on bread, veggies, crackers, grapes, whatever! You can't really do anything bad with this spread because it's just that good.
