Follow Your Heart Review

I have seen other reviews of Follow Your Heart products on healthy living blogs and became interested.  The company sells different vegan products. Although I am not a vegan, I like to try different products like this so that I can help to recommend some good options to my vegan readers. For review, I decided to try the Vegan Gourmet Cheddar Cheese alternative, Mozzarella cheese alternative, balsamic spicy BBQ sauce, and the reduced fat Vegenaise.

I was very pleasantly surprised with the vegan cheeses. I have never tried any vegan cheese before and had heard some bad things about them. One of the main things that I heard was that they didn't melt easily.  When I first opened the cheddar cheese alternative, I tried it plain. I was not the biggest fan.  It had an odd texture and was a little too moist.  Then, I put it in the microwave on a piece of toast. Wow! It melted well and tasted great! I was very impressed how much this tasted like real cheese.  I think that this product would also be amazing in a casserole or mac and cheese. Vegan Gourmet, you sold me on your vegan cheese!

I also opened the balsamic spicy barbecue sauce.  Now let me tell you, I am very picky when it comes to BBQ sauce.  I like mine tangy and spicy but not too sweet.  In fact, before trying this sauce, the only other BBQ sauce I liked was Open Pit original.  Then, I tried this sauce.  It was both spicy and tangy and tasted amazing. I can't wait to grill up some chicken and try it on there. ( I know, not vegan, sorry!).  I have thoroughly enjoyed these products and will be trying them again soon.
