Do you say "DAY-uh" or "DIE-uh"?

Not sure what the correct pronunciation is. I say it the first way, but I have heard others say it the second way more often.

According to the company itself, you are correct.

I say Die-ya because it's so gross I'd rather die than eat it

Haha, glad I'm not the only one! I was so intimidated by vegan "cheese", it took me months to work up the courage to buy some. And then another couple months to work up the courage to try it. Gross and disgusting indeed. I learned I'd rather just go without cheese than substitute with that.

But to answer the OP, I thought it was "day-uh".

No. It isn't the best. However, in it's defense, it is no worse that pasteurized processed American cheese slices in those little plastic wrappers.

Actually, it might be better.

There are very delicious vegan cheeses that are available online, and perhaps, in some stores - but not near me.

I say day-uh, because I assumed it was a spin on the word dairy.

I have no idea, but I immediately think of Christine in Phantom of the Opera whenever I see it.

Oh you guys are funny! Yeah it's not the best, but it melts and it works for toast and stuff, so I do use it occasionally. Miyoko's cheeses are pretty awesome, but oh so expensive! Have to start making my own again (another thing I have to start doing when I move in a few weeks!)
