I was quite the Flintstones fan when I was younger and I'm super disappointed that they aren't on TV anymore (are they?)!
I also tried a new-to-me dairy brand!
Cabot Cheese is a northeastern farm family coop that's been making hard and soft cheeses, yogurts, whipped cream, and more dairy delights for the past 90 years. I'd been craving cottage cheese lately (does that happen to anyone else? Cottage cheese is one of those foods that I don't eat regularly, but I'll occasionally really, really want some cottage cheese with peanut butter and granola. It's just the perfect late night study snack. So I gave Cabot Vermont-Style Cottage Cheese a try!
It comes in regular and no fat varieties, but my local store was all out of regular and only had two of these left on the shelf. I'll take that as a good sign that they were almost all sold out?
Or maybe my grocery store just needs to do better stocking. :P
This cottage cheese has nice size curds and a nice creamy white color. Sometimes nonfat cottage cheese can be a little water, but this one was creamy and great - no watery layer at all.
The flavor was also quite good. I tend to prefer my cottage cheese on the saltier side, since I like pairing it with sweet granola. This wasn't a very salty cottage cheese. But the good thing about that (other than it being a solid option for people watching their sodium intake) is that you can always add a little sprinkle of salt.
