The vegan cream cheese market is filled with exceptional offerings.

Vegan Cream Cheese: Top Brands & Serving Suggestions

You can find excellent vegan cream cheese in most supermarkets and every natural foods store. In terms of taste and texture, most vegan brands are indistinguishable from dairy-based cream cheeses. Your favorite grocery probably carries these products right where they keep the regular dairy-based brands.

A growing number of bagel shops likewise offer dairy-free cream cheese. If they don’t yet offer it, just buy your bagels to go, and add your favorite vegan brand at home.

Tofutti pioneered this product category decades ago, but the segment is now crowded with a wide variety of excellent products.
