Kite Hill

Offered in Plain, Chive, and Everything flavors, Kite Hill knows how to do cream cheese right. The inclusive brand uses almond milk as the first ingredient in its spreadable cheese products. As for the tangy taste, that’s vegan enzymes hard at work to give you all the cultured cream flavors.
