I heart trying new products so when I spotted these cool looking single-serve cottage cheese cups at the supermarket this weekend I had to grab a few.
You gotta hear these flavor choices...
The sweet ones
Pear Mangosteen (130 calories) - Loved it
Pomegranate Orange Cranberry (130 calories) - Loved it
Lemon Verbena Berry (140 calories) - Really really loved it
The savory ones
Sun Dried Tomato Pesto (130 calories) - Loved it
Cucumber Dill (110 calories) - Yet to try
Roasted Red Pepper (110 calories) - Yet to try
The 411: Rachel's is a brand out of the U.K. She makes yogurt too.
The cottage cheese has no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives, and is made from “rBST-free” milk.
I found them for $1.49 at Henry's (Wild Oats.) Here's the product locator to find a store that carries them near you.

Verdict: Yum. So far, so good. I tried 4 out of 6 and they all rocked. Little Miss Muffet never had curds and whey this cool. Be sure to stir them up... like those "fruit on the bottom" yogurts all the "good stuff" is down there. These have a ton of nutritional bang for the buck (low cal, low fat, high protein) they would make an awesome snack or meal for us weight loss surgery peeps. I'm thinking a killer breakfast would be one of my Roasted Pears topped with a dollop of Rachel's Pear Mangosteen Cottage Cheese. Ohhhhh yeah.
Look for 'em.
