    So, I really miss cheese.. And was looking at he cottage cheese in Tesco and the "light choices" one has more fat than the cheapo one. Seems a bit weird. Am I reading this right? And is the cheapo one the best then?

    "Light choices"

    Cal 85kCal
    Fat 1.5g
    Sat Fat 0.9g
    Sugar 2.2g
    Salt 0.5g

    "Cheapo"
    Typical Values 100g contains
    Energy 265kJ (65kcal)
    Protein 9.5g
    Carbohydrate 5.0g
    Sugars 3.5g

    You haven't listed all the nutritional info for the "lights" version. It's not about calories.
    Can you supply more info?
    Lidl has a 0.2% fat cream cheese, lowest I've found so far for just 59p.

    That's all they have online I'm afraid. I meant to take a picture but felt a bit silly!

    Here's the comparison, and yes, the value version wins out marginally on the light choices - but possibly only because it has more water in it:

    Tesco Light Choice Tesco Value

    Energy 80 cal 75 cal
    Protein 12.2g 11.5g
    Carbs 4.5g 2.5g
    Fat 1.5g 1g
    Sodium 0.2g 0.2g

    Atropos, do you have a file with the nutritional value if every item sold in this country? ?

    Thanks guys.. I was thinking it probably had less fat % as was watered down with something nasty! However, the added ingredients just said "salt".

    Now if you could just invent me some cheese & onion crisps and a nice glass of wine I can have please?
