A common childhood condition is to be allergic to dairy products. This was something that affected Tim as a child. Many people outgrow this condition. On the flip side, many people (including my father) discover in adulthood that they have developed lactose intolerance, which makes dairy products tricky to consume, at best, and impossible to eat, at worst.
Personally, I have a tough time imagining what it would be like to completely remove dairy from my diet. I LOVE milk and cheese! The founder of Wayfare products felt the same way. He grew up in the dairy business, as his grandparents operated a dairy farm that was famous for its cheddar cheeses. Alas, he discovered later in life that dairy product had to be removed from his family’s diet altogether. How heartbreaking! As he searched for products that could be viable alternatives, he became very disappointed with what he found. So, he set out to create a solution that would taste great.
He did it! And the source of his success came from an unexpected place – mostly oatmeal. All the products are certified gluten-free and 100% dairy free and soy free.These products can be found at a variety of stores, including Whole Foods.
We’ve been sampling some of the delicious Wayfare products over the past few weeks and have been really impressed with how yummy everything is. The company sent us three different types of “We Can’t Say It’s Cheese” to try (mexi dip, cheddar spread, cheddar-style dip and hickory smoked spread). All three have been yummy and a great snack option. They are more like “cheese” spreads, and they go on crackers very smoothly. Two thumbs up for all 3 flavors!
I also recently used some “We Can’t Say It’s Sour Cream” in a recipe that called for sour cream. I couldn’t tell the difference AT ALL! I honestly wasn’t expecting for the result to be so good!
Finally, we have tried out their puddings (butterscotch, vanilla and chocolate). They are AWESOME! Each one tasted like a cup of heaven coupled with an iced coffee. What a treat!
