Before sprinkling it on, I took a whiff of it. Boy, was it strong! Once I did sprinkle it all over my pasta and took a bite, it was pretty overwhelming. Although the texture and appearance are the same as the dairy version, it definitely does NOT taste the same! But I knew ahead of time that it likely would taste very different.

Since then, over the last few weeks, whenever I've made pasta, I'd sprinkle a little bit of this all over, then include a layer of dairy cheese on top. In this manner, the taste isn't as strong as the initial time. I'm hoping that this way, I can slowly get used to the taste and perhaps, over time, I can change the ratios, so there's more of the Go Veggie cheese than the dairy one.
So, I'm going to keep using it. Hopefully I'll get used to it, and perhaps even start to like it! While I was at my regional grocery store, Hy-Vee, I noticed that they actually got this item in stock, so if/when I do buy this in the future, I now have the ability to buy it right away instead of buying it online and waiting for it to ship.
