Vancouver, Canada-based Daiya says it reformulated its Daiya blocks. The offerings feature new packaging and an improved recipe made from oats and chickpeas. The Daiya blocks are now available across the United States, including at major grocery chains Sprouts, Wegmans, Wakefern and Natural Grocers, as well as at specialty retailers.

Made with oats and chickpeas and free from dairy, gluten and soy, Daiya says the blocks have a new and improved recipe that offers a creamier, more balanced taste with a semi-firm bite and smooth finish. Available in medium “cheddar,” Jalapeño “havarti,” “Monterey jack,” Smoked “Gouda” and new Classic “mozzarella” varieties, the plant-based blocks are designed to shred, slice, grate or cube.

"As more and more people continue exploring plant-based foods, we're more committed than ever to developing crave-worthy plant-based versions of their favorite foods that deliver on the delicious taste, texture and flavor they expect," says Dan Hua, vice president of marketing for Daiya. "Our new Daiya blocks are available just in time for the holidays, giving new and current fans dairy-free options that deliver exceptional taste and texture and which can be easily incorporated into favorite recipes to satisfy comfort food cravings."
