    Just ask them where the soft cheese are.

    Its made by a company called Golden Acre, about 50p per tub.

    Staff are stupid, I asked em once where there cottage cheese is and they didnt now what it was. Lo and behold I found a large shelf dedicated to CC. Quark is in the cheese section though.

    Quark? I have heard it being talked about a lot. I don't know what it is and what the benifits of eating/drinking it is??? Could you guys explain?

    (sorry, i thought it would be a waste of space to start a new topic about this)

    I have search stores in Ireland and have not found quark anywhere, I tend to either get either tescos cottage cheese or fromage frais. The tescos fromage frais is about 7% protein but low in fat and sugary carbs so it has a better profile than natural yogurt. I suppose if you blend the two you get a high protein content and a more quark like consistence!

    Let us know if you have any luck finding it here.

    Quark is a soft german cheese. It tastes like natural yoghurt, but it has a different - thicker - consistancy. It also has a similar nutritional profile to that of cottage cheese..

    I cant find it in Northern Ireland anywhere, Tescos used to stock it but they seem to have removed it from their shelves..

    I work at Tesco's and i don't know where anything is, so don't ask the staff if they sell something as there is alot of stuff in the stores so none of them will really know.

    That's classic

    Is it difficult to get a job there? Do you get a discount on your groceries?

    I dont doubt its for sale everywhere else, I've picked it up in poorly stocked tesco supermarkets in Scotland a few times, much as I like the stuff it wouldn't really be feasible to go across and collect a tub
    I have checked all the relevant shelves it aint here anymore
