A Cottage Industry.
Cheese, That Is.
Without even realizing it, we here at Trader Joe's have accumulated quite a selection of foods from nursery rhymes. In the fall we have pumpkins, just like "Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater." We have pies, like those found in "Sing a Song of Sixpence," though admittedly, ours do not have blackbirds baked inside them. And in our dairy case you'll find curds and whey, much like that enjoyed by "Little Miss Muffet." You may know curds and whey by its more common name, Cottage Cheese. Not just any Cottage Cheese. The best cottage cheese we’ve ever tasted.
Trader Joe's Fat Free Cottage Cheese is worthy of its own nursery rhyme. Really. It has larger and creamier curd than many other cottage cheeses, and fantastic, sweet-yet-slightly-tangy flavor that might just surprise you. Try it for breakfast with fresh fruit or preserves. Or pair it with tuna for lunch. You can even use it to replace ricotta cheese in your favorite recipes — this is a good way to cut calories without sacrificing flavor or texture. It's $1.99 for a 16 ounce container, an excellent price that makes us want to rhyme… another time, with a mime, selling lime, for a dime...
