Taste Test: Would YOU Guess This Is Cottage Cheese?

Taste Test: Will He Guess Correctly What He's Sampling?
My kids were super excited when I told them I needed to do a "blindfolded" food taste test, and that I needed a volunteer.  My oldest son was first on the scene with a spoon in his hand.  He did not know what he would be sampling, and would have to use his tastebuds to figure out what he was eating.  Watch the video of the taste test below.


Little did my son know he would be sampling a cottage cheese that would taste completely unlike any cottage cheese that he had ever tasted.  Needless to say, my son did not correctly guess what he was eating.  He mistook Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese (salted caramel flavour) as vanilla yogurt (which he enjoys quite a bit).

My entire family tried the ultra smooth cottage cheese, and all family members mistook it for a very rich, Greek-style vanilla yogurt.  I sampled the cottage cheese too, and never would have guessed it was indeed cottage cheese; the smooth texture and sweetness fooled me.  I'm a cottage cheese fan, and I have to say that the Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese is very unlike cottage cheese and will fool you too.

  2. Oh Salted Caramel, I bet that is yummy. Normally I would go for vanilla, but I would give that one a try for sure!

  3. that sounds delicious - I love salted caramel. Not sure I would guess correctly if blindfolded either. Cottage cheese always had a very distinct texture to it

  4. I have tried long and hard to like Cottage Cheese I really have. I just can not do it no matter how hard I try but that being said my problem has always been the texture so this might just be what I need.

  5. I love cottage cheese! My kids not so much but I can tell the smooth texture would certainly throw them off and they wouldn't know the difference.

  9. I love cottage cheese and when these came out I had to try them, the first one I got was the salted caramel and I did not care for that one at all, so I bought the lemon one and I have been hooked, lemon is my favourite!!

  11. I should try this! I've never really enjoyed the traditional cottage cheese texture so I only eat cottage cheese in pasta where it's melted but a smooth texture I would probably enjoy!

  14. I have never been a fan of cottage cheese (the traditional texture has always turned me off), but I will have to check this out. I do have concerns about added sugar, do you know how many grams of sugar per serving?
