Violife slices review

Hello again,

It’s Monday, which means I survived my long Sunday shift. I’ve been very busy all day as it’s my first of two days off, it’s been nice to relax, sort of. My next task is to take both of my cats for their check up, Harley absolutely hates going outside and cries all the way. Spock, on the other hand, loves the vets and sees it as a big exciting adventure.

Today I’m reviewing more Violife slices. I feel like I’m on an issue to try all the flavours (apart from mushroom).

I buy my Violife slices from my local health food store as they are usually cheaper than Holland and Barrett, and they stock a far wider variety of flavours. I paid Β£2.69 for each of the 200g packs I’m reviewing today.

The first variety I tried was the herb Violife, I found this one less creamy than the other flavours that I’ve tried. The cheese is flavoured with thyme and oregano and kind of reminds me of the flavour of Subway Italian herbs and cheese bread. Overall I wasn’t that fussed so I won’t be buying it again.

Ingredients: Water, coconut oil (23%), modified starch, starch, sea salt, thyme, oregano, vegan flavours, polyphenols, colour: b-carotene.

The second flavour I tried was the hot pepper variety. This one wasn’t too creamy either, but I found the flavour far more appealing than the herb variety. It isn’t too spicy and tastes just like Mexicana and is really delicious. I found it difficult to eat in my mild Tofurky sandwiches but I enjoyed it on top of a bean burger. I would buy this one again but I need to find more things to do with it.

Ingredients:Β Water, coconut oil (23%), modified starch, starch, sea salt, green and red dried peppers (1.5%), chillies cayenne pepper, vegan flavour, polyphenols, colour: b-carotene.

The final flavour I tried as the olive variety, this is a very creamy one and has olives throughout. I’m not a fan of olives but I decided to try it anyway, despite my dislike of them the cheese was actually okay and added a Mediterranean flavour to my sandwich. However, I am not sure that I’d have it again due to my personal preferences.

Ingredients: Water, coconut oil (23%), modified starch, green olives (9%), starch, sea salt, parsley, vegan flavour (contain mustard products), polyphenols.

The flavoursΒ that I still need to try are the peppers, olive oil and pizza, so I’ve tried a fair few of the slices. I’m also looking forward to trying more of the flavoured creamy cheeses including the herb, tomato and basil, hot peppers and cucumber and dill flavours. I’d also like to try the parmesan, but that’s a bit more expensive

I hope you enjoyed the review, I have another day off tomorrow which I’m spending with family and then I’m back to work.
