I think regular people don't know/care to know what plants based diet means. How many times I have been offered tuna salad as a veggie option..

reminds me that the church declared beavers and ducks as not meat cause they swim and fish swim, therefore beavers and ducks are fish

Vegan ass cheese hasn't caught up to the standards of meat substitutes.

At a commercial level, true. Homebased and craft though, false. I make a lot of vegan cheeses. Here's a vid that shows a comparable blue cheese I made a few weeks ago.

I also sell some lemon-garlic-pepper "goat cheese" to friends. It passes the vegan Turing test too.

Yeah to eat I feel like if you double the price you get something alright.

I don't know any vegan cheeses that are tasty and arent analogous to "artisenal" real cheeses in price. A lot of ingredients are just pricey as hell in bulk. Particularly cashews and mold cultures.

really? i've found the opposite. vegan cheese is the only animal product replacement I use regularly

The stuff I've found at the supermarket ranges from awful tasting to almost making me sick. I agree with OP that homemade cheese replacements are great.

This is just my experience, of course.

I feel like whoever is making vegan cheese is trying too hard for meltability and forgot that milk has a lotta sugar in it. It winds up tasting like burnt plastic and it makes me gag when I try to eat it.

I think all vegan cheese hates melting. And we need to make our peace with that, lol.

A person on reddit claimed he only bought meat from local farmers (or rather something called "reko-ring").

When I asked if he never ate hamburgers, pizza or hotdogs he got angry and started name calling me.

Cool username btw

I wasnt being super serious, but its hard to know online. You're completely right tho, was meant as a tongue in cheek

tbh I (mostly) don't care what other people do in general, so I don't care for moralising either

Because vegetarians die if they don't eat cheese at every meal.

I hate how american fast food culture of huge meat and cheesy monstrosity have permeated my country's fast food culture. because 1, I want something I can eat in one sitting and 2, that much cheese causes strains in my relationship.

No doubt. And the fries were cooked in same as fried chicken. At least one of the workers bothered to tell me without me asking.

Not everyone is vegan. I really dislike vegan cheese. That being said non-vegan processed "cheese" isn't really cheese. It's a mix of some cheese along with toxins, most notably about 3% of it is alum.

Because vegans aren't their intended market.

Indeed, the only way to "go vegan" is to completely remove oneself from the entire food production system of neoliberal markets. But if you've constructed a way to bypass capitalism's stranglehold on food production and distribution, why would you identify as a consumer with a label like "vegan" anyway? Maybe you want to eat the eggs your chickens produce, or eat their meat once they die a natural death, without having to self-flagellate over the moral implications of a now-irrelevant critique of the food system's abuses?

Well, maybe if one is anarcho-moralist, one wants to do that. How else will one get off?
