Cottage cheese...

#1
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?

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.

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:

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?
