Unlike everyone else at Vegansaurus HQ [Ed.: Except Meave!], I’m still a die-hard Follow Your Heart user. But I know you guys are all on the Daiya Cheese fandom, so you’ll want to jump on this. I’m anticipating mile long lines and bloody brawling because this is too good pass up. Quoted in its entirety from Rainbow’s Facebook page because I’m too lazy to summarize:
Just wanted to let you know that we are having a major sale on Daiya vegan Mozzarella/Italian style “cheese.” $6.99/lb until this batch is gone! This fake cheese is made with cassava root (like tapioca) and has been hugely popular over the last six months that we’ve been able to get it. We pack it in 16-oz. tubs and keep it in our cheese department. Only 300 lbs. at this price so don’t delay!
300 lbs! That’s two of me, IN CHEESE FORM. I’m going to buy it all and carve two vegan cheese statues of me to guard my front door like gargoyles.

So Daiya vegan cheese is no longer just available at Rainbow Grocery (altho if you’re in SF, that’s still the best place to buy it because SCREW WHOLE FOODS YA KNOW?). Anyway, it seems Whole “we hate fat people and probably black people too WHO SAID THAT!?” Foods finally wised up and is selling it at most bay area outposts in their cheese sections. If you don’t see it, ask for it. And if you think the person doesn’t know what they’re talking about, ask someone else because they should have it. They sell it in eight-ounce plastic tubs like at Rainbow but that brings me to my second point:
IN FURTHER NEWS: Daiya recently launched its retail (in the snazzy packaging above!) and they are unleashing that unto the world on Thursday, Apr. 1. Get your eating pants ready for DAIYA INVASION!

We got a tip that there was some vegan food on Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show yesterday afternoon! Ellen had her personal chef Roberto Martin make some vegan tacos with Yves Ground Round and Daiya Vegan Cheese, a product
we some of us are fanatical about.
Even better, the comments on the recipe on Ellen’s website are actually positive.
In case you were wondering, Ellen is a long-time vegetarian (here’s a video of her speaking at a PETA gala) and her and wife Portia de Rossi went vegan this year.
