Best Cottage Cheese Brand?

We stick to the lowfat stuff. Recently we got the Kraft Simply 2%, which is a new product. It's not very good, mushy, and as DH describes it, it tastes like dust. We have tried Daisy, which actually tastes worse. The store brand, Our Family, varies, but tastes pretty mediocre. So far, the best we can find here is the Fareway store brand. Any other brands that are decent?

I like Nordic.
Even the name suggests it's icy good.
Can't help you with the 2% stuff.

I don't know if you can get it outside of Minnesota, but I love Old Home brand. It has a nice texture and creaminess - even the lower fat varieties.

Maybe you will just have to make your own to get some that tastes good.

I'm not going to make my own, Taxy, we go through it too fast. Thanks, Pac and Steve, will have to look for those brands.

I'm really picky about certain brands of different foods, and cottage cheese is one of them. I won't eat anything but Knudsen cottage cheese, although if you live in the eastern, southeastern and midwestern United States, you know it by the Breakstone's name. That's the same idea as our western Best Foods mayo is your Hellmans, another name brand I won't do without.

Anyway, for me there's nothing better than Knudsen/Breakstone cottage cheese.

I agree with Kayelle, I like Breakstone's, seems to be a good consistent product.

If I'm in the Northeast I really like Hood, but that is a very regional brand for most of their products.

I've heard of Breakstone's, not sure we get it here. Thanks!

Nordic and used to get Lucerna from Safeway, now I get Darigold, regional. I had one spoonful of that Kraft and threw the whole thing away.

I used to buy Breakstone's sour cream and all of a sudden it took a turn for the worse. I've never bought their cottage cheese though.
