A Reddit user felt there was something strange about the vegan blue cheese they bought from Aldi. In a post, they wrote, “Vegan blue cheese. Is it supposed to be different colors?” They included an image of a blue cheese container with white and grey pieces. Interestingly, the concern in the comments section didn’t particularly lie in the color of the cheese. Though one person wrote, “Yeah, they attempted to make it look more like dairy blue cheese,” the rest of the comments were bashing the product itself.
“Wow… and I didn’t think there was anything more disgusting than regular blue cheese,” one commenter wrote. Another read, “I wouldn’t eat it. Mainly because it’s vegan blue cheese.” One Reddit user was nice enough not to bash vegan food, but rather recommended a brand they thought was better. “Follow Your Heart makes excellent vegan bleu cheese and spoiled me,” they wrote.
The brand in question, called Earth Grown, is Aldi’s in-house plant-based brand, per One Green Planet. Some other products include chickenless tenders, meatless meatballs, and Asian veggie burgers.
