Similar to the gluten-free market, dairy-free options are on the rise. Many use soy as a dairy alternative. This can be helpful for anyone who has to avoid dairy but not so great if you are also sensitive to soy.
WayFare’s “We Can’t Say It’s” line of non-dairy foods takes dairy-free to the next level. Instead of using soy, WayFare’s dairy-free cheeses, sour cream, and puddings are made with 100% natural gluten-free whole grain oats. In addition to being dairy-free and soy-free, all of Wayfare’s products are also certified gluten-free, making them a safe and healthy option for individuals with celiac disease.
As great as it can be to have a healthy dairy, soy, and gluten-free option, the product still has to taste good. Although I cannot say WayFare’s products taste exactly like their dairy counterparts, they are all very creamy and flavorful.
WayFare’s “We Can’t Say It’s Cheese” is available in four flavors: Cheddar-Style Spread, Hickory-Smoked Cheddar-Style Spread, Cheddar-Style Dip and Mexi Cheddar-Style Dip. All four flavors are very thick and smooth. The flavor for all four of these is very intense by themselves. However, when used as a dip or spread, or when mixed with other ingredients like salsa, the strong flavor works. All of WayFare’s “We Can’t Say It’s Cheese” products melt so easily, making them a great choice for dairy-free nachos.
Similar to WayFare’s dairy-free cheese dips and spreads, their “We Can’t Say It’s Sour Cream” does not taste identical to its dairy counterpart. But its smooth texture and strong sour flavor make it a great replacement in recipes that call for traditional sour cream.
WayFare’s Pudding is available in three flavors, Chocolate, Butterscotch and Vanilla. All three are very creamy and taste amazingly close to standard pudding made with milk.
