Last time we went shopping, I spied some flavored cottage cheese in snack-size cups.  I grabbed the strawberry; other flavors include peach and pineapple.  I think there was at least one savory flavor, too, but that's all I could find online.

Today I tried the strawberry version, and it was pretty good, although a little odd.  Probably that's just lack of familiarity -- I had a similar experience with Annie's yogurt, which is now my favorite.  It's a surprisingly healthy set of ingredients for a store brand, too.  I didn't even realize the fruit was on the bottom and supposed to be stirred, since strawberry bits were visible on top; I'd expected it to be flavored with puree at best.  Just remember to stir it first.  Also, the label says "small curd" but this looks more like what I've seen sold as "large curd" before; if you're picky about size, be careful.  I happen to like both.  I also enjoy plain cottage cheese, but variety is fun.  As a snack, this has many advantages: individual cups are more portable and convenient for portioning, cottage cheese is nutritious, and it's filling.  :D

Apparently several other companies have their own options:

Honey & Pear, Maple & Vanilla

six fruit flavors

and more!

If you don't eat dairy, you can make coconut cottage cheese.  It's probably just as good with fruit.

Stuff like this is ubiquitous in Terramagne -- plain, sweet, or savory. They have much better access to healthy snacks. When tasty, affordable, nutritious food is readily available then people are more likely to eat that than junk.  A vending village in T-America will typically have half a case of junk if there's only a couple of machines, or one for candy and one for sodas if there are many machines.  The rest will have fruit, sandwiches, granola bars, healthy dairy products, bottled water, fruit juice, and other good-to-great choices.  The higher-tech machines will play little games with you or ask health trivia questions, and you can win discounts or even free food that way.

Yum

The pineapple flavor was my favorite when I was little-one of the best snacks ever. Don't often see these at the store where I am.

Ooh. Strawberry sounds nice!

I'd pay for good savory flavors. Garlic and herbs in particular make me happy on cottage cheese.

Cottage cheese with pineapple is a thing here and it's as good as it sounds!
