It’s 2022, so there’s a vegan version of just about every meat- and dairy-dependent food out there—and cream cheese is no exception. Though anyone who’s bought a bar can attest not all brands are created equal (and some are not even close to tasting like the real thing). That’s why we made it our mission to seek out the best vegan cream cheese you can buy, whether your intent is to smear the condiment on bread, use it as a dip for crudités or even make it the star of a fish-free lox bagel board for Sunday brunch. There’s a plant-based product on our list for every preference and dietary need, including nut-free, flavored and silky-smooth options. Read on for everything there is to know about our top picks.
