Nancy’s cottage cheese doesn’t taste like other cottage cheese, says cookie monster—it has a tart flavor, similar to sour cream. “Not like sour milk, but like someone had mixed some sour cream into it,” explains cookie monster.

The unusual flavor is because it’s a cultured dairy product, like yogurt. “That’s the reason I love it—I find most other cottage cheese to be quite ‘bleh’ now,” says nofunlatte. “FWIW, Nancy’s non-organic cottage cheese is also cultured and it has that same tangy quality. It has nothing to do with the ‘organicness’ and everything to do with the ‘culturedness.'” At $4 a tub, it’s a bit of a splurge. But “I don’t even eat the other stuff anymore, it’s so bland,” says nofunlatte.
