Friendship All Natural 1% Whipped Cottage Cheese Review

Friendship All Natural 1% Whipped Cottage CheeseI've recently gotten back into cottage cheese for many reasons: the protein, the calcium, the portability, and the taste! When I came across Friendship All Natural 1% Whipped Cottage Cheese on sale for just $0.99 cents for a 16-ounce container at the grocery store, I couldn't believe it - and I couldn't resist. An added bonus was that this cottage cheese is supposed to be "spreadable" according to the label. I've heard that it can be used as a cream cheese substitute, but I was dubious. I opened the package to see how it would compare.

When I dug in, I found that the cream cheese was much drier than expected. I'm used to a creamy, somewhat more liquid-y cottage cheese, but this was definitely whipped and lighter. It could possibly double as a spread, but I'll stick to cream cheese for topping my bagels. As for the taste, this wasn't my favorite. Despite the hefty 15% of the daily value for sodium per serving, this tasted somewhat bland.

Each 1/2 cup serving provides 90 calories,1 gram of total fat which includes 0.5 grams of saturated fat (2% and 4% of the daily value), the aforementioned 360 mg of sodium (15% of the DV), 16 grams of protein and 3 grams of carbohydrates as sugar. There is also 10% of the daily recommendations for calcium. The ingredient list is wonderfully short: cultured pasteurized grade A skim milk, milk, salt, and vitamin A palmitate.

Overall, I think this is different and somewhat interesting, but not my cup of tea.
