Rachel’s Wickedly Delicious sweet and savory cottage cheese - lemon verbena berry, sundried tomato pesto, etc

In time for summer Rachel's is launching nation-wide distribution of their new flavored cottage cheese.

Other flavors
- Cucumber Dill *
- Roasted Red Pepper*
- Pomegranate Orange Cranberry,
- Pear Mangosteen*

I bought the flavors with an asterisk * since those were the only available flavors.

So far I only tried the lemon verbena berry. Like yogurt, the flavor is on the bottom to be mixed in. Mixing turned this a pretty pale purple. The taste is light more lemon verbena with berry background. It is not as sweet as I would expect and not as solid as some cottage cheese.

Here's a blog which did a nice writeup on the roasted red pepper

It was pleasant with mixed fresh berries and cherries. I don't know if I'd tag it as Rachel's calls it "wickedly delicious. However it is a pleasant change.

Rachel's let the copy writers go to town though ...

"The word for fragrant dill comes from the Norse "dylle" meaning to "calm, sooth or lull."

"Born in Genoa, Italy, pesto sauce is a luxurious combination of basil, garlic, pine nuts, grated Parmesan cheese and olive oil"

"Refreshingly tangy and tart cranberries are also called "bounce berries" due to their bounce-ability when ripe."

And on and on.

It is wickedly expensive though. It was on sale this week - $1.50 for 5 oz.
