Final run of Cowgirl Creamery cottage cheese

Melanie Wong Dec 30, 2012 11:34 AM

In case you're not following the new Chowhound Cheese message board (category? . . . said ironically ), Cowgirl is discontinuing production of clabbered cottage cheese. If you're a fan, last chance until they figure out how to produce it another way.

    Thanks for posting this. I am a fan. (Tried Nancy's recently and didn't care for it at all.)

    I didn't even know there was a "cheese board." When did that happen?

      Here's a link to the Cheese Message Board.

      It started a few weeks ago and has been populated with threads moved from the General Topics board and elsewhere.

        Where do you usually buy it?

        And regarding the new Cheese forum, many of the threads are pretty old. But some are timeless, so feel free to bump the ones of interest and bring them back to life.

          I just bought some at the Monterey Market. 3.99 for 8oz. Clover is 2.48 for the same size. Actually, I think Clover is pretty good, so I won't be heartbroken to have to buy it. It's a lot wetter. My husband thinks Cowgirl's is too dry, but I prefer the flavor. One thing we agree on is that Trader Joe's is no good.

        FWIW, Whole Foods Potrero Hill is out and none in this morning's delivery.

          Noooooooo! I love that stuff! (sob)
          Thank you for the heads up.
          Now keeping fingers crossed that it will come back!

            That makes me very sad, Melanie. I really like that clabbered cottage cheese for a number of reasons. One, it tastes great. Two, it doesn't contain guar gum (or as I call it, edible phlegm) or any other non-essential additives.

            I have found at least two acceptable (but not quite as delicious) substitutes at my local Safeway. Knudson has taken out the guar gum that they added when they were bought by Kraft Foods, and Daisy never contained it. They both come in small curd with either 2% or 4% milk fat. I prefer the 4%.
