Actually tastes like normal cheese

This cheese taste just like normal cheddar you'd buy in the supermarket. Incredible that it's 2g of fat per 100, I could eat this whole block and that'd be less fat than a small bag of crisps. Melted it on food in the microwave too, melts like normal cheese. This cheese is going to change the lives of everyone on a cut...

If you like cheap, mild cheddar....

3
Overall:

...then this is the product for you. I had seen the reviews that claimed this tasted like real cheese, and it does - but not necessarily good cheese. But what do you expect? It is incredibly low in fat compared to the real thing, and is higher in protein. As a healthier alternative it is fine. The consistency is quite rubbery and the cheese is almost translucent. The taste is comparable to Value mild cheddar, so if you are expecting the mature cheddar hit then you will be very disappointed (and also a little over-optimistic). The taste is just about passable in a cheese and pickle sandwich. When melted it does the same thing that most low-fat cheeses do, forming a semi-solid puddle rather than the oozing deliciousness that you would hope for. It works well if grated into/onto an omelette. All in all, it's a reasonable product. If you really, really love cheese then you may be prepared to accept the taste as a worthwhile trade-off for the lack of fat, but then again, you may also be so horrified that you go running off to buy a wheel of brie. But I would suggest giving it a try, if you are looking for some cheesey goodness without the negative dietry impact. And if you are a mild cheddar person then go for it, you'll probably love it. I'm not sure I'll buy it again, simply because I prefer a much stronger cheddar.

Spoiled cheese

The cheese is no longer sent via a chilled consignment so it was spoiled when arrived.

Disappointed by the early use by date on the cheese received. Normally they can last at least 3 weeks, the use by date was less than a week and a half to the use by date!

Great product but be aware of salt intake

4
Overall:

Once you get past the fact that this isn't premium cheddar, as a vegetarian that doesn't eat eggs, this is a really effective way to up your protein intake quickly whilst limiting fat intake. You can eat this as a block of cheese and for me it's nicer than a protein shake and surprisingly moreish but be careful with portion sizes. A 100G block will give you 37G protein, however, also 2G salt, which is 1/3 your recommended max intake of 5 - 6G. If you combine this with two slices of the Dr Zak's high protein bread total salt would be 3.2G, and that's just potentially one meal for the day. If the manufacturers could look into a low salt version that would be great, but I'm not sure what that would do to the taste. The moreish factor may be due to the salt content and I did find myself reaching for a drink soon after eating it. Texture is slightly rubbery, but not as rubbery as 'cheesestrings' (only thing I could think of!). I'd say give it a go and see what you think if like me, you're looking to up your protein outside of the shakes and don't eat eggs. Otherwise, I'd say just eat more eggs!

Protein Bread, or a block on it's own

Just finished my 3rd 350g block, a fan you might think, well not if you like the true flavours of cheese. It has absolutely no taste, you may as well be eating one of those semi translucent erasers that found there way on to students desks, back when we used pencils and drew diagrams. So you will be thinking, why have you worked your way through nearly a kilo of the stuff? I'm not on an excess protein kick, nor am I on an extreme low fat diet, though if the claim of 2% fat is true, its a tick in the box for anyone concerned about cholesterol levels. I am intrigued by the calcium levels, and that, for me, and anyone with losing bone mass, has to find this product of interest. I've always eaten cheese generally, in a measured way, I love to discover the subtlety of flavours available, strong but not necessarily savage, nutty, mellow, textures that are firm or crumbly, the occasional Stilton wedge. This stuff is non of those, so you don't need to pretend its some wonderful Cheddar that tastes divine and sits in your refrigerator as a great cheese. What it is, is a panacea that meets certain expectations and desires of its users, those on high protein diets, crash and hold diets, and in my case, stemming the tide of a life of wear and tear. I'm certainly not going to be eating this stuff, to the detriment of real cheese, there are too many pleasures to miss. As an aside, I stumbled on this brick of milky, faded yellow stuff, in a local 'low cost' supermarket, it was a 'special offer', and as such I have not found it easy to find, I'm now down to the last 350g, and in truth won't miss it on the grounds of taste. The point is, where do you find it on the shelf, I'm certainly not keen enough to order by post, or confident it would find its way through the delivery system in a fine and edible state. In summary, if it floats your boat, all well and good, but don't claim its a fantastic cheese, it isn't. I reviewed this after my first try, my opinion has not been swayed by eating more
Goes Well With:
Have not tried anything more than artisan crackers and usually a rye/sourdough bread, at least they have some flavour. I would guess, if grated and left to 'dry' in the fridge, it might pass as a pizza and pasta sprinkle, but I stick with Parmesan. Anyone tried this in a mouse trap? it would stay on the spike well!

Don't believe the reviews saying it tastes like normal cheese

1
Overall:

I believed the reviews on here saying it tastes like normal cheese, it's not even a little bit true. The taste and texture is so bad the only way it's palatable is if you include regular cheese with it, which defeats the point. The nutritional information is great but I bought this stuff 2 months ago and 2 thirds of it is sitting in my fridge untouched because I can't bring myself to eat that plastic and chemical tasting yellow lump. I'm going to try the half fat cheese I hope that is better but I genuinely can't believe the reviews saying this tastes alright, it is bad.

Still in pining after the smoked version of this cheese which has been out of stock for what seems to be a lifetime :,( I'm not a big fan of cheese but this is the only one I actually liked and would eat. Please, please, please bring it back to your product range Myprotein!
