I give it a rating of five because it actually tastes extremely delicious. I sprinkle this on everything, potatoes, pasta, scrambled egg whites, etc. I can't wait to try it on other stuff. If you haven't bought it, buy it, what are you waiting for; it'll be a staple. However, I have to be admit, to me, it does not taste anything remotely close to real cheese (not even close in flavor to the mildest cheese).
