This is a great little vegan snack take along that my grandson really enjoys! Earth Island Cheddar is the only plant based cheese that he has approved! (He's 10) Anyhow it does have a nice texture and smell to it! He also likes this veggie slice the best - it's from Yves and its the Bologna. Add a few vegan crackers which are relatively easy to find on any store shelf and you've got yourself a winning combo that is kid approved!
