Review – Vegusto No-Moo Melty

MoFo 2013 Banner

Recently, we ordered Vegusto‘s Starter Pack, which offers a selection of their products for only £10. I was very pleased with the contents of the package, but one product stood out from the rest: the No-Moo Melty.

No-Moo Melty Review

When I opened the cheese, I have to admit I wasn’t convinced that my experience would go too well. The No-Moo Melty is a sausage shaped, soft stick of cheese, difficult to slice (it just squashes) and a little bit crumbly. I persevered and put some on my tomato toastie.

Tomato Toastie with No-Moo Melty

As you can see in the picture, the cheese is rather squidged, but a pleasant colour apart from the yellow flecks of, er, something.  I shoved the assembled toastie into the Panini Press (yes, we have such gadgets) and waited for about 5 minutes.
I was so pleasantly surprised when I saw and tasted the results. The cheese had melted almost completely, and tasted EXACTLY like lower-budget mozzarella would. In fact, I think this tastes like the paninis you can buy in coffee shops. If you own a coffee shop and are looking for a vegan cheese option for your hot sandwiches, this is the one to go for. It’s not cheap, but reasonably priced in the world of vegan cheese. 400g (two rolls) will cost you £7.50, and since this is something that you probably wouldn’t buy every week, I don’t think this is too bad.

  1. Thanks for the review! I haven’t tried this specific version but I am a huge Vegusto fan. Best vegan cheeses in the world, I think.

    1. Absolutely. I’m sad that they don’t do the no-moo fondue anymore.

  2. I’ve never had the opportunity to try Vegusto. I’m glad it worked out so well for you! My favorite cheese is one of the nut-based cheeses from Punk Rawk.

    1. I’ve never heard of that brand before! I really want to try making nut-based cheese since I’ve never found any for sale in the UK!

      1. It’s really fun to make your own! I’ve made a few from Miyoko’s book. It takes more time than buying from a store, of course, but it’s cool to be able to make something that delicious from scratch.

        1. Haha I was thinking about that book this morning! I night buy come next pay day, I really want to try the brie!

  3. I love No-Moo Melty! It’s the perfect toastie cheese.
