    Fine on both :) I personally like it with fruit, home made yoghurt, nuts and honey.

    Re:Quark 2011/03/19 22:02:27 (permalink)
    I've been searching for this in Tescos but have never seen it, so I went to Morrisons and had better luck. I'm just wondering what the usual price of this stuff is? I bought two small tubs (227grams) for 69p - is that good or bad? I've never tried it before either, but the protein content is high so that's all that matters!

    250g tub in Sainsburys is 70p!
     
    Try mixing sugar free jelly powder into it if you find it rather bland..

    Yeah this stuff is great. My local tesco stores it and it is exactly the same as sainsbury's 250g for 70p. Nutritional info is very good. 14g of protein per 100g, 4.2 carbs and 0.2 fat. I spread it on my breadbuns instead of (dont like marg or butter), have it on oatcakes, use it for cheesy mash, and also sometimes as an alternative to cottage cheese on a night i will take about 200gish of it and mix some of my whey for a nice moose.

    The one I get is 250g from Tescos which tastes better than Morrision one, it cost 70p. I tried it with fruit and some nuts last night and it was lovely.

    Not a fan of the taste, I got the Golden Acre Quark and it was really bitter.
     
    As sick as it sounds I just mixed 10grams of choc cookie premium whey and it taste like thick chocolate mouse!! Really nice ha ha.

    Just noticed Quark at Asda the last time I was there........is this a good alternative to cottage cheese as a late night protein source?

    I think it's a better source!
    Higher in protein, lower in carbs, fats and sodium.
     
    I've made the move from cottage cheese to quark.

    Mix a carton with a sachet of white chocolate options powder & some peanut butter.
    Thats the shizzle.

    I mix a dash of robinson's no added sugar summer fruits to it, just tastes like yogurt to me.

    I love the stuff in shakes. I always go with the Tesco variety as it has a thicker consistancy and comes out of the pot in one go.

    250g tub in Sainsburys is 70p!

    Try mixing sugar free jelly powder into it if you find it rather bland..


    This.
     
    Set 2 x tubs in 1 x packet of jelly and you have a quark mousse.

    Yum!
