Well you're not eating from that end anyway, Mozart.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

Suzi, glad it worked out.

I'm a big cottage cheese fan (love it in my noodle/cott cheese dish, right out of the container, salad etc)... so pardon my cottage cheese rant, lol. I only buy Knudsen, small curd - usually lite. The problem I find, is that if I don't consume it w/i 2-3 days (even prior to the expiration date) it goes off, i.e. gummy & liquidy - texture change. I store it upside down, but it still goes off way before the expiration date. When I have my groceries delivered, even though they are on a refrigerated truck - the cottage cheese is bad the day I open it. I had to dump it so many times, w/i the expiration date, that I don't order it on-line/grocery delivery. It's the only food, if I don't consume it almost immediately, I can't eat it.

ETA: A little tip - when it comes to dairy products, i.e. milk, sour cream etc -- even though the expiraton dates may be the same - I reach my hand in & pick one from the back - newly stocked. I'm guessing, the market's strategy may be to move the older products toward the front to move it off the shelves.
