  • “M-m-good and lovely texture. I use it frequently in grilled sandwiches, with macaroni and toasted on English muffins. Prairie Melt has become a bit of an addiction for me; a must have staple in my refrigerator.”

  • “Definitely in my top 10 favourite plant based products”

  • “I feel like I say this about a lot of plant-based products but I honestly was surprised with how good this was. The Prairie Melt did melt nicely and has a nice flavour to it. If you didn’t tell me it could pass as a very mild, soft melted cheese.”

  • “It actually melts just like real dairy cheese but it’s made with a potato base!”

  • “Not only is Prairie Melt dairy-free, It’s also soy-free and nut free too. When you go dairy-free for a cows milk allergy you typically have to go soy-free too because they are related. It’s really hard to find dairy-free substitutes that aren’t nut or soy based so this is really exciting.”
    of River City Sisters
  • “Definitely a good option for cheese lovers who have gone vegan.”
