I don’t discriminate when it comes to shopping. I love all kinds of shopping equally, and grocery shopping is included.
Every time I step inside a grocery store I start with a renewed hope that I will put together healthy snacks and dinners, and as I approach the check out I try to shed all of the extra chips and snacks I added to my cart along the way.
Last week I tried out Nordica’s Smooth Cottage Cheese, and luckily it fits into the healthy snack category!
I LOVED the Salted Caramel flavour! So good. The texture wasn’t lumpy at all like regular cottage cheese, and each serving has 10g of protein and only 110 calories.
I’m usually a pretty big fan of Greek yogurt, but Nordica’s Smooth Cottage Cheese actually has 25% more protein than most leading Greek yogurts.
So it tastes good, and it’s good for you! Anything that is flavoured Salted Caramel and is good for you is a no-brainer – you must try it.
My husband is a creature of habit, and has told me repeatedly that he hates cottage cheese. Hate is a pretty strong word, but those are his thoughts on the subject. He was likely the most difficult person to introduce this new product to since he hates cottage cheese, but I thought I might as well go big or go home and trick him into trying it.
I got a little sneaky – not completely dishonest sneaky, but the kind of creative sneaky where I only describe SOME of my shopping spree purchases while omitting the ones that made more credit card damage. I asked my husband to do a taste test for the blog, not letting him know what he was trying, and taped his reaction.
Here was his reaction when I convinced him to try “something” for the blog!
He was a good sport, and his reaction was genuine – he really liked it!
Nordica’s Smooth Cottage Cheese is available in Vanilla Bean, Salted Caramel and Lemon flavours. We tried Vanilla Bean as well and it was also very good. Lemon wasn’t in our grocery store, but we will give it a try soon as well. So far this product is available in Ontario only, at most major grocery stores.
